Hog Roast Ampthill
Not many towns get named after an ant hill. It’s an unusual thing to be named after to say the least, but that is the origins of the name Ampthill allegedly come from. This Bedfordshire town is home to around six thousand people is very much the historic, typically English market town that the tourists love.
It’s long since crumbled away but this town was also home to one Ampthill Castle once upon a time, and a frequent visitor to the castle was Henry VIII. It would be fair to imagine that Ampthill Castle was home to many grand evenings and celebrations in its time. These would probably have included a fair few hog roasts. King Henry would no doubt be surprised to see hog roast enjoying something of a renaissance in twenty first century England and in Ampthill too. Hog roast Ampthill, your majesty?
Hog roast? Renaissance? That’s right. Hog roast is indeed making a comeback in England. It seems that people looking for great alternatives to their party and special occasion food are looking to hog roast to meet this need. And that certainly seems like a good choice as hog roast is a real crowdpleaser in every respect. Maybe you need to make the note ‘hog roast hire Ampthill’ in your diary now.
