Customer feedback for our spit roast lamb in West Sussex


  • Wedding April 2017 for 150 guests
    Bruce and Alice supplied and cooked the most beautiful lamb for our daughters wedding celebration. The lamb was so tender and all the guests were very complimentary. Superb service with no fuss and all cleared away and left spotless.
    Highly recommened

  • End-of-summer garden party for family and friends.
    The lamb roast was a huge hit with all the guests, thank you so much! As the party-giver, I found that Bruce and Alice were a delight to work with. I had complete confidence in all aspects of their service from the pre-event meeting (covering safety, hygiene and all practicalities) to serving the lamb beautifully and on time and leaving everything immaculate, even down to filling our fire pit with burning embers from the spit roast’s fire. They are consummate professionals and, thanks to them, we have a new family tradition!

  • Surprise 70th Birthday Party – August 2016
    Rating: 10/10
    Bruce and Alice did a fantastic job providing a delicious spit roast lamb for this event. We were asked to provide a Lebanese themed meal, and the lamb cooked to perfection was the perfect main course. Their service pre the event was both professional and efficient. I look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you.

  • Sunday 14th August 2016. (Summer garden party for 70 friends and family).
    Having had Hog Roasts before, we thought it would be nice to try lamb and found Bruce and Alice’s website (Butcherland Lamb Roasts). We loved the idea of the open fire rather than the ‘steel casket’ and everyone being able to see the lamb cooking. We were not disappointed. Bruce went through everything on the phone and came over the week before with the wood and to survey the garden. On the day it all went very well and lots of our friends commented on the taste of the meat and the novelty of the cooking. There was enough for seconds and every scrap went. Finally, Bruce and Alice cleared their equipment very discreetly. Thoroughly recommended!

  • 50th wedding anniversary.
    Well not a lot that can put taste into words. This is the second time our family have used Bruce and Alice (Butcherland Lamb Roasts) and once again the lamb was outstanding delicious. All the guests commented on it and needless to say there wasn’t any left. The venue was in a Church Hall for our 50th Wedding Anniversary, with no ability to cook onsite, so Bruce and Alice actually cooked it, sliced and delivered to us from several miles away, as if it was fresh from their spit roast. Not sure how they managed it! They delivered it in wonderful trays with burners underneath which they set up on the table provided, and came back later to check all had been fine. As I said previously, you can’t put taste in to words, so I’ll just say Thank you so much Bruce and Alice. It was enjoyed by everyone.

  • Saturday 6 August, 50th Birthday Party
    Thanks so much for the wonderful lamb at my husband’s 50th birthday party, it certainly made catering for a large group a manageable task. From visiting the garden to discuss where the best place would be for setting up the spit roast, through to carving up the lamb ready for eating Bruce and Alice were very helpful and professional. The lamb itself was delicious, very succulent and almost without any fat which was remarkable, several of our 50 guests had second helpings and there was just enough left over for an easy Sunday supper the next day. We would definitely book you again – but not too soon, as we’re still recovering from this party!

  • Wedding.
    Bruce and Alice provided the memorable spectacle of a spit roast lamb at our wedding celebration. The entire service was executed faultlessly, it proved a great talking point on the day until it was cooked and served, at which point everybody went quiet!
    If you are thinking of having a spit roast lamb, look no further, Bruce and Alice – thank you once again.

  • 40th birthday party
    Well we are still recovering from a fabulous 40th party for approx 100 guests in our garden! So many people commented on how succulent and tasty the lamb was and they have been persuading us to have a mini music festival next year so we will definitely be calling on your services again! We were both so impressed with the service and pre planning of the roast. You were both great but next time please feel free to help yourselves to tea and coffee etc!!!
    Many thanks again

  • Summer party.
    Thank you so much to Bruce and Alice for the lovely lamb that you did for our Summer Party on Friday – it went down a treat!
    You couldn’t have been more helpful or accommodating to our needs – leaving the site spick and span and providing a generous amount of food to feed our hungry customers.
    Thank you again 🙂

  • Birthday celebration.
    I had a fantastic lamb roast for my birthday function in June. All my guests really enjoyed it and by the end there was nothing left! The lamb was cooked beautifully and was so tasty. Everyone really enjoyed watching the lamb be spit roasted.

    Bruce and his team were very professional throughout. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking to cater for an event.

  • Garden Party for School Parents & Teenagers
    Rating: 10/10

    I would highly recommend Bruce and Alice for any event. The lamb on the day was delicious and provided a wonderful focal point for our party. But even better was the friendly, professional and thorough service that we received. Bruce made two visits to us to check out the site, confirm all details and deliver the wood prior to the day. His attention to detail and flexibility was much appreciated – nothing was too much trouble and he was keen to make sure that the garden wasn’t damaged by the fire and that the guests had the best experience possible.
    The lamb was so popular that most guests had second helpings (sadly none left at the end for us to enjoy the next day!) Thank you both for the excellent catering and professional service you offer. Highly recommended!

  • School class party.
    Bruce and Alice provided a really professional service. We had a class party for about 50 adults and everything went really smoothly. The meat was absolutely delicious, and Bruce was very helpful about arranging where he was going to set up and carve etc. Would definitely recommend using them again.

  • Wedding celebration.
    Bruce and Alice, what can I say – from the initial contact to the end of the day your service was faultless. Every query I had was sorted very quickly and as the numbers increased for the day so did the amount of lamb!
    Every guest commented on the quality, melt in the mouth moistness and flavour.
    I cannot recommend you both enough for a whole wedding experience for the food.
    Thank you both so, so much.

  • Saturday 4th June our Wedding.
    Rating 10/10

    Fantastic service! delicious lamb! Could not have been better! Thank you so much. Love Matt and Jade Gibbs x

  • Our son’s wedding.
    Thanks Bruce and Alice for all your help at Matt and Jade’s wedding and of course the delicious lamb. We knew what we were getting when we booked you and we certainly weren’t disappointed. You were both professional and personal in all that you did. You helped make the day so perfect.

  • 2500th Rally for the West Surrey Caravan Centre.
    Alice and Bruce, what a fantastic show you put on for us, two Lambs at once to help us Celebrate. Catering for some 160 odd people the Roast was ready on time specified and was carved to perfection. The Lambs were of the highest quality and the taste was off the scale, much better than a leg bought from the local butcher. There was seconds and none was wasted. Our thanks once again for a fantastic meal. The best spit roast lamb in West Sussex. My best regards Roger Smith. Chairman.

  • 40th birthday party
    After worrying about catering for lots of people at my husband’s surprise 40th. I decided I would enjoy the party too and booked Bruce to do a spit roast lamb at short notice. We had a great party and I was able to enjoy it without worrying about food. Bruce took care of everything and the lamb was cooked to perfection. Everyone commented on how great the lamb tasted. It was so tender and delicious. Everyone went back for more. Thanks again.

  • Centenary celebration.
    Bruce and Alice roasted a lamb for us to celebrate my father’s centenary in August 2015. They were extremely professional before the event, making an initial site visit to check the garden was suitable and then returning to deliver the firewood the week of the party. On the day they arrived early but did not disturb us, they carved and served the lamb at exactly the prearranged time and then cleared up and left our garden spotless (except for a scar on the lawn, which has now completely disappeared!) Bruce and Alice went out of their way to fit into our plans and they were a charming team to work with. I would recommend them highly.

  • Saturday 12th September 2015 Wedding.
    Rating 10/10!

    Dear Bruce and Alice

    As promised a belated review on the fabulous “Meschoui” which you organised for Chantal’s wedding last month.

    Now that she is back from her honeymoon, we have had a chance to catch up and revisit her special day which was just fantastic and magical in every way apart from the catering … In fact it would have been a complete disaster had it not been for your superb lamb which completely save the day ! It was succulent, cooked to perfection and had this lovely and distinctive flavour of a true “Braai”, much praised by all our guests including all the South African contingent.

    As mentioned before, the catering caused us endless grief from start to finish but, equally, had we not been forced to search further afield (more than 80 miles), we would not have discovered Butcherland. Having already lost two caterers in succession as well as the Spit Roast Man, it was such a relief when you both came so promptly to the rescue and gave us a much needed boost of renewed confidence with your very calm and self assured professional approach.

    With our renewed thanks for an outstanding and faultless service which carries our full recommendation and very grateful appreciation.

    Our best wishes to you both.

    Edithe and Chantal Nicholson

  • Wedding.
    Huge thanks goes to Bruce and Alice for the amazing lamb we had at our wedding. All our guests commented on how tasty the lamb was and went for seconds; delicious. We cannot praise you both enough for all the help and assistance you gave us. We cannot recommend you enough.
    With so much love from the new Mr and Mrs Haywood.
