Fresh quality food…

text specialises in spit roasting whole animals and offers authentic traditional Mediterranean barbecues - a unique, mouth watering experience.

All our meat is sourced locally from a traditional butcher and organically reared meat is an option when available.

The art of spit roasting is a traditional Mediterranean technique of cooking a whole animal. The authentic barbecue way is to cook the animal slowly with radiant heat over an open lump-wood charcoal or real wood fire. operates a unique, specially designed rotisserie that can be towed to almost any location to provide a fantastic centrepiece to any feast.

Food our inspiration…

Our inspiration and origins go back to our Mediterranean patron Artemis, the Goddess of the countryside, twin sister of Apollo and deliverer of the Nymph Daphne from his amorous chase. The spirit of Artemis is alive and well in every feast we organise!

One of our greatest assets is our Head Chef, a true descendant of Artemis! With over forty years experience in roasting animals, his enthusiasm for good food and drink is infectious. He makes sure that every feast goes with a swing!

Home Grown…

At text we grow all our own vegetables in our family garden. We pride ourselves on having the freshest ingredients to provide you with the tastiest and healthiest meal possible. In the summer we pick your desired vegetables the very morning of your special day. We are passionate about our food and only source from trusted and traditional producers.

We import our speciality olives from a family friend in Greece and they are the freshest and most ripe you can find! Our olive oil is also sourced directly from small producers in Greece. We know them personally and trust the quality of their products implicitly. Our wild herbs are hand picked every summer on Mount Olympus and we use them exclusively to marinate our meats.

Fine ingredients for fine dining at a venue of your choice!
