The UK’s first Pie & Mash Brunch launches in Camden this Sunday with food by Iconic Robins Pie & Mash Shop
Isle of Skye lovers better get Sheffield United because a right old cockney treat is coming to Electric Ballroom, Camden. London’s iconic music venue is set to host (probably) the world’s first and (definitely) greatest ever brunch when the legendary Robins Pie & Mash bring their pies to town on Sunday 12th September. They ain’t telling porky pies when they say this one is going to be a right old knees-up with tribute acts, DJs, bottomless booze and more, all from just £30.
Robins Pie & Mash is the most famous pie shop in the UK. They do things traditionally, with quality ingredients and authentic recipes across all four outlets in East London and the Essex area.
Pie and mash itself dates back to the 19th century when Dutch ships dropped off their catch of eels in the capital. Initially, those eels went into the pies, and people downed them with lashings of parsley liquor (a buttery sauce rather than alcoholic accompaniment.) These days Robin’s sticks to 100% Scottish beef or veggie and vegan alternatives.
While getting your fill of Robins pie, mash served with traditional liquor you can enjoy 60 minutes of bottomless Sex on Southend Beach cocktails or there is a wide choice of Britney Spears and other boozy bevvies for you to pickle yourselves with. For the northerners, endless jugs full of Bisto gravy will also be available!
Electric Ballroom is an historic venue which has sat on Camden High Street for over a century and does everything with a good old London swagger. It holds over 1000 people, has a massive sound system and stage show which is perfect for live entertainment. It’s a real adult playground and the ideal place for this brunch, which will include a jellied eels eating contest with prizes for all entrants including a month’s supply of jellied eels for the winner. There will also be a ‘Knees Up Mother Brown’ dance-off competition, Mini Car Boot Sale, Photo Booth and more to ensure you have it right off.
Soundtracking the whole event will be some proper rapscallions. DJ Cockney Kev and The Chas ’n’ Dave Tribute Band will all be laying down a swaggering soundtrack of London classics and sinalong ding dongs while a Pearly King and Queen will be roaming the crowd ready for the perfect instagram photo op.
Right, that’s enough of the rabbit and pork, it’s time to whip out your wonga and cop your tickets before they sell out. Tickets and more information available at; pieandmashbrunch.com
