No soggy bottoms here! South west London eats all the pies this British Pie Week

Passionate about puff? Feverish for filo? Mad about a mash top? No matter what gets you pie-eyed, British Pie Week is certain to satisfy.

Running from March 7-13, this week is dedicated to celebrating the British classic, providing the perfect opportunity to stuff your pie hole.

If you struggle to get the perfect golden top or suffer from a crumbly crust, head over to Jus-Rol’s website for official British Pie Week top tips and pie-deas.

Alternatively, if you prefer to eat without the effort, south west London offers a plethora of ap-pie-tizing treats to sink your teeth into.

To keep things strictly traditional head to the founding fathers of London’s pie and mash scene at M Manze in Sutton — jellied eels and liquor optional.

While Three Cheers’ south London gastropubs, including The Avalon and The Abbeville in Clapham, are pie-oneering with flavours including wild boar, rabbit and chorizo, sweet potato, kale and feta.

Alternatively, for an up-market take on the humble pie, The Botanist in Chelsea is offering patrons a luxury truffled wild Suffolk venison and woodland mushroom pie and a modern take on the classic Cornish Stargazy pie.
