London's Best Scotch Egg

Once a tasteless supermarket snack, the Scotch egg has since found its way onto the menus of London’s finest eateries. We’ve discovered some of the best spots to reignite (or discover) your love of this patriotic snack.

Winner:

The Harwood Arms

Famous across town, The Harwood Arms Scotch egg creation fully deserves to take our top spot. The gooey egg yolk, moist venison and gentle sprinkling of Maldon salt on top are sure to convert any Scotch egg sceptics. Enjoy.

Contender:

The Pear Tree

A traditional combination of sweet pork and salty black pudding forms the outer layer of The Pear Tree’s Scotch egg, complementing the soft-boiled egg within. It comes with a light honey mustard dressed salad that keeps the strong flavours from overwhelming the palate.

Contender:

The Laughing Gravy

Light crisp breadcrumbs encase an unusual blend of smoked scallop and West Country crayfish, and the central egg is soft-boiled to perfection. Served alongside a light roast salsify salad, sea veg and shellfish vinagrette, this was stiff competition only just beaten to the top spot.
