The Kings Head House Hotel in Eastington has come up with a tribute to its neighbours and producers in the form of a pie for British Pie Week.
British Pie Week (7-13 March) has been an annual celebration of the dish that has been served since around 2000 B.C. and loved by Brits since the 12th Century.
The Kings Head House Hotel has come up with a vegetarian recipe using Eastington Farm Shop Milk, Morfona seed potatoes, leeks, smoked garlic and apples, also from the farm shop. Jonathan Crump’ special Standish, from Standish Farm, Stonehouse and Just Pressed, a cider from nearby, and a pastry case made from Shipton Mill and Netherend Butter to make what they have dubbed – The Five Valleys Pie.
The idea was spawned by hotel proprietor, Ethan Rodgers, who took over the hotel and restaurant in late 2021.
“When I arrived here, I had no idea how many great producers and suppliers there are,” he said. “I believe British Pie Week should be a celebration of all things local. It is a great opportunity to showcase the great farmers and producers we have around here and combine all the flavours to create something special. I am serving the pie with a wild garlic sauce; this is an ingredient I have picked myself whilst out walking in the area.”
The pie will be on their menu for British Pie Week.
