Food & Drink

Here’s a list of some of just some the fantastic people who will be selling food and drink at The Big Meat 2018:

The Bar!

We will be serving 3 cask ales from Langham Brewery (a Session Ale, a Golden Ale, and an IPA) as well as a variety of craft cans and cider from Hogsback Brewery. We will also have a range of soft drinks available at The Big Meat bar.

Bark ’n’ Render

Bark and Render

Bark ‘n’ Render is a catering company specialising in central Texas style barbecue meat! Returning to The Big Meat after high acclaim – serving the highest quality Brisket cooked for up to 15hrs over locally sourced wood.
“You can taste the love and dedication that goes into this amazing produce. Absolutely delectable and highly recommended. This is the stuff that can turn a vegan off the straight and narrow!”

Quiet Waters Smoke & Fire

A veteran ‘Big Meater’ now, John Gower is bringing along seemingly everything from his wide inventive menus – check them out below. He’s even offering an afternoon tea with a cuppa from Lesley, and a breakfast for all of the campers…

Quiet Waters also sell a cracking selection of rubs and sauces which will be available on the stand, so be sure to pick a few up and see if you can replicate the epic taste at home! The Big Meat cooked up some chicken and steaks using Quiet Waters rubs – check the video out below.

Eat Like A Greek

A newby to The Big Meat for 2018 – cause who can really resist grilled meats in pita…especially after a few beers on a hot day!

“We offer traditional greek pita wraps using local meats. We serve grilled lamb kofta, grilled chicken and grilled halloumi with homemade tzatziki sauce and aegean spices.”

Brisket & Barrel

Brisket & Barrel

New to The Big Meat for 2018, and also competing in the BBQ Competition, Brisket and Barrel will be serving a delicious sounding menu of Beef Ribs, Smoked Chicken, and a Croissant Burger – surely a must try!

Lowe and Slow BBQ

The Lowe name to some may be somewhat legendary in the BBQ scene… Others feel that it’s just the surname of a bloke who somehow co-runs simply the best festival in the game (James – more on him here…) Either way, the truth is that James could only have been here thanks to Mr Mike Lowe and Mrs Jan Lowe, his parents – who certainly are BBQ legends!
Jan and Mike will be serving up 14 hour smoked brisket chilli, alongside nachos topped with cheese and coriander – available for late night munchies Saturday and all day Sunday.

Shine London

Shine London Moonshine

Returning to The Big Meat Shine London is on a mission to create amazing events through the use of Palmetto Moonshine. They want to ensure that when your drink is served it also comes with the history, heritage and culture surrounding this unique drink. You have probably seen the movies and heard the stories now it is time to get acquainted first hand with this premium whiskey born from the 1920s prohibition era.

Cupper Joe

“Cupper Joe is a popup speciality coffee shop. Offering a range of flavour rich coffees, tasty teas and indulgent hot chocolate.
It’s not just about the hot drinks. We also have refreshing iced tea and coffee made by us, not a syrup in sight.
We make our own range of homemade delicious fudge. Obviously we’d say this – but it’s also true. Trust us – it tastes fantastic.”

Dylan’s Ice Cream


Dylan’s Ice Cream founder Ben Govier has been making ice cream since he was a boy, so it’s no surprise he’s now rather good at it. The best ice cream is created from the freshest ingredients plus a lot of love, and ours is crafted at Manor Farm in Langrish.

“The company is named after our much-missed black Labrador, hence the paw in our logo. In 2014 we opened an ice-cream parlour in Haslemere to complement our two roving vans, and we have dedicated fans at events across Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex.”

Drunken Monkey Cocktail Bar

“We are a local family run business born from our love of creating the most delicious drinks.

Our bespoke flagship bar was built to our specification by Custom Bar Co and will be fully stocked offering cocktails, mocktails and Prosecco by the glass.”

Mark The Moment
