What: The Pie Room at Holborn Dining Room
In a nutshell: London's pie supremo gets a pie place
Summing it all up: Calum Franklin's pastry making prowess nets him a special pie room opening at the Holborn Dining Room with pies to go and a special pie hatch coming
ALL the pies
We're used to seeing press releases proclaiming that this is the news you've all been waiting for, but today's big story really IS the news you've all been waiting for. Londons pie maestro, Calum Franklin is going to be opening a fully-fledged Pie Room at his restaurant, Holborn Dining Room.
Taking over the space once occupied by the deli, this is where you can gawp at the restaurant’s chefs crafting pork pies, beef wellingtons, pate en croutes and complex pithiviers by hand every day.
The Pie Room will set a selection of sweet and savoury pies. Pick up one just for yourself from £5.50) or get a big one to share (or just to have yourself) - that'll cocst £30 to serve 4-6 people. If you prefer to eat your pies in more palatial surroundings, order them here to eat in the brasserie. There'll be a special Pie Room launch menu and for the rest of the year pies will always feature on the a la carte.
There's a lot to look forward to as well. Next year they'll open a pie-to-go hatch onto High Holborn and from April you can book weekly pie making masterclasses.
