All of our meats are from local Essex farm’s, purveyors of the finest free range and rare-breed meats, ensuring that everything we cook is of the highest and freshest quality.

Our BBQ’s are tailor made to our specifications, and designed to cook, over hot coals, barbecued food to delicious perfection. Our chefs are specially trained to use our bespoke equipment, and boy does it show in every delicious, sumptuous, scrumptious mouthful.
Summer Barbecue Experience
Of all the aroma’s that outdoor eating produces, there is nothing more evocative of cherished childhood memories, and as liberating on a baking hot summers day, than the satiating smell of delicious meats popping, fizzing, and sizzling on a charcoal BBQ; the real taste of summer.
Our experience of pricking a free-range pork banger, flipping an free range rare breed beef burger doused in hickory smoked sauce, throwing a chilli-infused soy shrimp, marinating a luscious corn-fed chicken and skewering mint and rosemary kebabs, means that, once you’ve tried one of our BBQ experiences, the bar will be irreversibly raised.
Churrasco Brazilian Barbecues
It’s carnival time. Powerful street samba beats and hip shaking frevo rhythms can tingle and revel on your taste buds with our authentic Brazilian BBQ. Infusing the essence of Brazil with succulent beef and mouth-watering chicken, cooked on skewers over hot coals on our purpose built Brazilian rotisserie, or as they say on the streets of Rio, “churrasqueira”. Colourful, aromatic, flavoursome, lively and a whole lot of sexy fun.
Delicious hog and spit roasts
Nothing is quite at tantalisingly delicious as the smell of a whole slow spit roasted hog. There is something age old and satisfying that taps right into our primal nature when we see a whole succulent pig slowly turning over hot coals. We’ll also spit roast a whole lamb, studded with rosemary and garlic, the melt in the mouth sensation that accompanies every delicious mouthful is heaven in every slow, chew.
If you really want to pull out all the stops, why not have one of our choice cuts of prime shoulder of Angus beef. You will not believe how incredibly impressed your guests will be by our to die for flavours that will greet their expectant salivating mouths. Our chefs will carve the meat of your choice into freshly baked baps, or onto a plate with golden brown roasted potatoes. The choice, as ever, is yours.
