The award-winning Windmill Mayfair is celebrating the humble but beautiful pie during National Pie Week (2nd – 7th March) with two events: a week-long Six Nations inspired pie challenge and a one off, exclusive Scotch Whisky & Pie Evening on Wednesday 4th March.
Falling right in the middle of the Six Nations, both sport and savoury pie will be championed at the Windmill on Mill Street in the heart of Mayfair

Scotch Whisky & Pie Evening
On Wednesday 4th March from 6:30pm-9:30pm, the Windmill will don its Highland tartan, dust off the bagpipes and celebrate all things Scottish.
The Windmill’s first big pie event of 2015 will include a special four-course meal with paired whisky (£35) for its clan. Kick off with a welcome cocktail and nibbles before polishing off four courses of comforting fare.
The star of the show will be Chef Carl’s popular haggis pie, which will convert even the pickiest pie eaters, alongside tastings of a number of popular Scotch whisky blends, including award-winning Chivas Regal.
