Scotch Egg ChallengeSome of London's leading chefs take to the kitchens with the aim of elevating the humble bar snack to new heights in a cook-off and blind tasting to find the nation's best Scotch Egg. Chefs from Temper, The Dairy, Smoking Goat, Holborn Dining Room, Pidgin, Nanban and Rambla meet at The Canonbury Tavern in Islington to compete in the famous Scotch Egg Challenge. A must-see (and taste) event for any foodie fan, entrants are judged on three categories - taste, texture and appearance - and there's enough scotch eggs for the audience to feed their faces for free. Previous winners have included the Harwood Arms, Princess Victoria and Holborn Dining Room, who convinced the judges with their delicious combination of white pudding and sausage. With a big screen showing all the action live from the kitchen, and 12 of the best seats in the house up for auction, this is a truly egg-cellent event.

About The Canonbury Tavern

Having been a public house since the early 1700s, The Canonbury Tavern has a rich history, with George Orwell, who lived in Canonbury Square, writing part of 1984 while sitting under the tree in the garden in the 1940s. The Islington pub was demolished and rebuilt in 1846 and in the early 20th century the top floor was removed due to a fire and never replaced, meaning the intriguing staircase leads to nowhere.
