Pancake day celebrations in London

Pancake day celebrations in London

Pancake day in London

I thought I would pull together some of my favourite hotspots for eating pancakes in and around London. As well as let you know what they are up to on Pancake Day! Just look at some of these scrumptious pancakes. You can also get involved in the Leadenhall Pancake Race as well as a three-legged pancake flipping race at Where The Pancakes Are.

Have a flippin’ good pancake day at The Breakfast Club, BOXPARK Croydon!

24th February – 1st March | BOXPARK Croydon

The Breakfast Club is back with five new Pancake flavours as they celebrate Pancake Day at BOXPARK Croydon from 24th February – 1st March. 
On Shrove Tuesday, The Breakfast Club will be serving up a menu of five fluffy pancake specials, in addition to its classic stacks. Keeping up with the five-year tradition, the infamous Pancake stack challenge is back for those who think they’re up to the test of eating 12 pancakes in 12 minutes.

The specially created menu will be based on throwback pub grub classics, featuring a hearty vegan twist on the British classic – Bangers & Mash, presenting vegan sausages, sweet potato mash, red cabbage & apple sauerkraut, fried onions and gravy. 

Chocoholics can indulge in the opulent ‘All the Chocolate’ pancakes with chocolate frosting, flake, cherry compote, a glorious scoop of ice-cream and pecan praline. Or treat yourself to the perfect sweet and savoury combo with their ham, egg & chips pancake, served with grilled pineapple and honey-mustard glaze. 

Feeling competitive? Get ready to test yourself with The Breakfast Club’s ultimate Pancake Challenge, whereby diners have to munch through a stack of 12 delicious pancakes in 12 minutes, on 25 February. Those who pass the test will win themselves a free meal and those defeated will be donating to The Breakfast Club’s initiative to combat loneliness and isolation among the elderly by taking their pensioner pals out for a fun day out. 

The Breakfast Club will also be launching additional dishes to add another layer to the Pancake Day celebrations. Cereal lovers can sample ‘Great Balls of Deep-Fried Cornflake Ice-Cream’ paired with butterscotch apples & a stout syrup to warm you up the proper way this winter. 

For those wishing to participate in the Pancake Challenge, there’s no need to book – just head straight to any of the nine Breakfast Club cafes throughout London on 25 February to take part. 

Where The Pancakes Are, Southwark

Tuesday 25th February 2020 | 7:30 am – 10 pm | Southwark

To celebrate 5 years since Where The Pancakes Are first began as a pop-up. London’s dedicated-pancake restaurant Where The Pancakes Are will be joining forces with Flat Iron Square to make room for all pancake lovers this Pancake Day.

Join in their three-legged pancake race!

In true Where the pancakes are tradition, there will be a three-legged pancake flipping race for everyone to compete in at 8 pm. The fastest three-legged duo will be awarded free pancakes & bubbles, so brush up on your flipping skills to win a tasty stack!

All Day Pancake Party @ The Book Club

Tuesday 25th February 2020 | 9:00 am – 10:00 pm | Southwark

Once again, The Book Club is standing out as A definitive Pancake Day destination – continuing their reputation as the go-to spot and the Glasto Of Pancake Day! Building on their incredible selection in years gone by (which sees queues stemming around the block to get a taste of their iconic delights). The Book Club is taking things to Club Tropicana itself this year, with a mouth-watering selection of cocktail-inspired pancakes being served at their All Day Cocktail Pancake Party!

Whether it’s gorging into a Pornstar Martini, Pina Colada or Espresso Martini Pancake – The Book Club is bringing a taste of summer to Pancake Day in a way only they know how. Complete with the cocktail served in its traditional form, it’s bringing a whole new tradition to the day itself, with pancakes set to fly off the shelf in record time.

Riding House Cafe

Riding House Cafe will be flipping all day long

Tuesday 25th February 2020 | £12.5 Per Head (the whole table must order).

This pancake day option must appear most costly. However, I wanted to include it for anyone who wants to indulge themselves on Shrove Tuesday. £12.50 offers an unlimited supply of pancakes, which you need to eat on the premises (no taking home for later). Riding House Cafe is a fabulous place to be.

Pancakes are served with clotted cream & berries, or triple-smoked streaky bacon & maple syrup. They are perfect for your annual fix unless like me you prefer to eat them all year round! I have added in the t&cs for you to look through.

T&Cs: Whole table must participate | Must be eaten at the venue – you can’t take any home | Standard table return times will apply |
Standard portions (£9.8) also available all day, and can be ordered individually
