Hog Roast at The Red Lion and Sun [Haiku Review]


Hog roast perfection.
Crackling divine, moistest meat,
Ludicrously cheap.

Look at that. Unlimited pork plus sides for £12. TWELVE POUNDS.


This guy (Heath Ball aka @pubhobbit on Twitter) owns the pub. He looks justifiably happy.

A plate of sunshine.

That looks amazing! We're having a hog roast for our wedding next year, if it looks half as tasty as that, I will be one happy lady!

We had wedding hog roast last year.
Am still trying to think of the next excuse.

@Hanna @Miss Whiplash - I firmly believe that all weddings should have a hog roast. I failed to have one at mine, d'oh.

@Kavey - Haha, me too!

@BeccaRothwell - Am sure there will be another opportunity :)

The twelve pound crackle
Worthy piggy sacrifice
A glutton's delight
