Chefs from restaurants and pubs across Britain have been invited to demonstrate their cooking prowess by competing with their interpretation of the quintessential British classic, the pork pie.

Princess Victoria would like to invite the pie-conscious public to join them in celebrating this event from 7pm-9pm on Monday, March 3, for a tasting and to witness the crowning of London’s best pork pie. Confirmed chefs for the Princess Victoria Pork Pie Off include Matt Reuther (Princess Victoria), Peter Weeden (Newman Street Tavern), Dom Chapman (The Royal Oak, Parley Street), and TV’s Andy Bates (The Pie Man).

Kicking off at 7pm, guests will be encouraged to circulate the dining room and enjoy tasting portions of the pies from the twenty participating guest chefs, washed down with complimentary craft beer from local-award winning brewers, Portobello Beer.

The public will be asked to score each pie out of 5, on a scoring card provided, judging on taste and texture. Final judging will then be cast and the winning pie will be announced at 9pm.

When: Monday, March 3, from 7pm

Where: 217 Uxbridge Rd, London, W12 9DH

Tickets cost £10. To book, click here or call 020 8749 5886. All proceeds will go towards Princess Victoria’s nominated charity, Action Against Hunger.
