With flexible options to suit every budget, there is something for everyone. We will go above and beyond to create a menu tailored to your needs.

What Makes Us Different From Other Spit Roast Catering Companies???


 Our spits are gas rotisserie spits, NOT ovens. Our meat is so juicy because it is slow cooked on a rotisserie, NOT baked. A gas rotisserie and an oven cook very differently. The rotation cooks the meat evenly in its own juices ensuring optimum tenderness and flavour.


We are an independent family owned business. A lot of the catering franchises out there cut corners to keep costs down, buying in bulk or purchasing pre-made salads which means the quality received by the customer is at a much lower standard. As a small business we don’t buy any of our fresh ingredients in bulk and believe strongly in supporting fellow small businesses in our community by sourcing our produce from them.


Fresh, Fresh, Fresh. All our ingredients are purchased fresh just a day or two before your function. We like to source our ingredients from other local independent companies in our community. Our fruit and vegetables are hand picked by us direct from our supplier so that we can make sure our customers receive nothing but the best quality ingredients. They are then prepared by hand on the day of your function.  Our meat is ordered each week from our butcher for each function, not in bulk amounts which means your meat is as fresh as it can possibly be. Our bread rolls are cooked on the morning of your function and collected by us just hours prior to our arrival at your venue.


We carve our meat on site in front of your guests. Our tender spit roasted meats are carved slice by slice as your guests come along the buffet table to ensure the meat retains its tender, juicy goodness and will not dry out sitting in bain maries.


We really LOVE what we do and we care about YOU! Every single staff member at Swagman’s Spit Roast is a friend or family member. We are all invested in the success of our business and will do our best to make your function as special and successful as you can hope for and cater to your needs. Customer satisfaction is our biggest priority.


Forget the fuss, leave the catering to us!

We had a heap of dietary requirements and they were so happy to change their menus to fit in with us! They were so helpful on the night and set up everything we needed! The food was absolutely delicious and I've had so many people say it was the best wedding food they said they'd had! They did everything they said they would do which was wonderful, we had a 3 course meal with them for 98 guests!! My first wedding caterer pulled out just before the wedding, and Swagmans just came in and fixed everything!

Hi Julie, Thanks for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to cater for you last year. We have only just signed up to Easy Weddings so I'm only seeing your review now. Hopefully we will have another opportunity to cater for yourself and your husband again in the future. PS. Thanks for sending through the info about the post ceremony dress.. I went in and tried it on but they didn't have my correct size so i went with a similar dress. So glad I did, those wedding dresses are heavy haha..

Family run business that really know how to cook a spit roast. The meat was to die for, vege's could not have been any yummier. The staff were really fun and friendly and just fitted in with all of our guests, which created a great atmosphere. They looked after everything, I didn't have to worry about a thing. They had a lot of experience and made the whole process sooo easy and stress free.

When does the caterer need finalised choices?

Swagmans Spit Roast

Check with your catering company as to when they want the final payment to be made. Usually they will require final numbers around that time. We ask to be provided with final numbers and menu selection 7-14 days prior to your wedding. 5 days at the very latest. It is always a good idea to get in contact with them as soon as you have received all your RSVP's.

Do caterers provide an on-site coordinator who will run the entire event?

Swagmans Spit Roast

No not usually. You will find that some venue's will offer this option but not many catering companies.

A good catering company specialises in providing the food/ beverages for the event and this should be their only focus as there is so much detail and work that goes in to running the Catering for the event. Some caterers will however be able to recommend an event co-ordinator. Just make sure you're doing your due diligence to ensure that the person they recommend isn't just their next door neighbour or mate who needs a bit of extra cash.

Will I need any permits for my event? If so, will you handle obtaining them?

Swagmans Spit Roast

You may need a permit if your event is being held in a public area owned by the council such as botanical gardens or a local park or lake. You will need to register your event with the Council in that area and they will advise you if any catering permits are required. Most public halls and churches do not require any Catering permits as the caterer will already be approved to Cater off-site in a rented building in the region their business is registered in as well as surrounding regions so long as the venue is for your private use only and is not open to the public at the time of your event.
