DO NOT TOUCH Bap, Crackle and Hog with a barge pole!! They totally ripped my wife and I off on our wedding day. Guests went hungry and food that was provided was dry and tasteless - NOT what we paid good money for. They are refusing to answer phone, reply to email and are deleting FB posts!

Can't agree more, DO NOT TOUCH Bap Crackle and Hog, total scammers also avoid their other sites bchbars.co.uk
On the upside he's on facebook and looks like he's been spending your money on his own wedding. Feel free to leave him a comment, link below.

Be very wary of using Darren Bishop and his Bap Crackle and Hog company for your event! Extremely unorganised, poor table service, missing food and members of staff disappearing to do another job.
We have tried to take this up with Darren Bishop but his responses were slow and he always had to be chased up to get a reply at all.and his final email to me was nothing short of rude and abusive. Case has been opened with trading standards.
Also Darren has removed posting comments to FB, removed reviews from Yell and only cherry picks the reviews he wants people to see.

I also strongly advise against using Bap, Crackle & Hog. They catered for us recently and Darren Bishop caused us a lot of totally unnecessary stress with his lack of communication and organisation. In the run-up to our wedding he became impossible to contact. He had an excuse for everything, wouldn’t answer emails or phone calls, and even had some sort of “incorrect number” message set up on his mobile to avoid taking calls. We didn’t know if anyone was going to turn up or not until two days beforehand. The people who showed up did the job, but it was not worth the hassle he caused us and our family.
I really wish we had read the previous reviews on here before booking Bap, Crackle & Hog. It would have saved us a lot of trouble, so I’m posting this in the hope it will help other people avoid making the same mistake.

Totally sympathise with the above, thoroughly dissapointed with their service at our wedding last July, we have got to the point where we are taking them to court, would not want anyone else to make the mistake of hiring them for their wedding or party!!!

I can confirm that this waste of space in now running The Forester's Arms in East Hoathly so I would avoid at all cost! Its interesting to see that he really struggles to run one business so to run two at once should be very interesting.
I feel really sorry for anyone that has had any dealings with Darren Bishop and his company and experienced the appalling service that he provides.
FYI - The link below is to his Facebook account and interesting he has run a couple of companies in the past that have folded under his control.
