The Great Sausage Roll Off 2024

The Red Lion in Barnes is delighted to announce that Alan ‘Sir Porketeer’ Paton won this year’s Great Sausage Roll Off – an annual competition to find the best sausage roll.

Hosted by The Red Lion’s Managers, Angus McKean and Claire Morgan, £5,000 was raised on the night for Only a Pavement Away through tickets and sausage roll sales.

Seventeen chefs, including The Red Lion’s own Angus McKean, cooked up their savoury treats and served them to the panel of esteemed judges – and the pastry loving audience. 

As always, competitors descended on Barnes from all over the UK to showcase their wonderful and wacky creations. The entries comprised a vast range of flavours and ingredients – from pig cheek wrapped in croissant dough to harissa lamb with yoghurt dip.

Alan’s winning creation was a Suffolk Duroc pork and black pudding Battenburg with Yorkshire rhubarb curd. While second place went to Alec ‘The Weeping Chef’ Tomasso – for his handmade pig cheek cotechino sausage with croissant dough, crackling and tomato sauce powder, served with basil and spicy pepper sauce. 

And third place went to Kat Dima, Head Baker of The Real Food Cafe in Tyndrum, for The Kilted Wonder – a pork and haggis sausage roll served with spicy ketchup.
