It’s baaaaaack (bacon) – the meatiest of food fests, Meatopia. And in its second year, the line-up promises to be even bigger and better, with unique-to-the-event dishes designed by some of the greatest meat masters in the capital. Expect whole roasted beasts, great music (which this year will be themed according to the day – old skool and acoustic jams on the Saturday, with more cutting-edge cool on the Sunday), and a mind-blowing array of carnivorous pleasures.

Pretty much every serious meat purveyor in town (from Dirty Bones to Duck & Waffle, Flat Iron to Foxlow) will be showing off their skills, plus there’ll be good booze, butchery classes, tasting rooms and edible demos. Entry tickets cost £30 per day (dishes cost extra). You might have a coronary afterwards, but heck, what a way to go.

I notice that most of the negative comments below were written before this event even happened. I have to agree with Tim. This was the most exciting event I've been to in London for many a year. Fantastic idea and an amazing crowd. Cant wait for next year. Unique. DJ BBQ was hilarious and the food was of the highest calibre

Had a GREAT day. Alex was wrong. Ticket included masses of food and drink and a decent goody bag. Didn't pay a penny in there. Dario's butchery demo was brilliant. Came out pleasantly drunk and stuffed. Brilliant venue, great food and good beer and cider. If you go next year, get the expensive ticket!

The price doesn't include most of the food, either, and none of the drinks. Just admission and two small plates from the huge range on offer. Most people would need to spend massively more than that to get a decent meal, and if you've already invested £50 on entry, you'll hardly hold back on getting any benefit. This will be eye-wateringly expensive. If you want to spend £100 on lunch, there are far better places to do so, surely?

Love BBQ but the price for this event is CRAZY! I mean...are the organizers for real?

£31.50 for entrance only tickets (and they have the nerve to charge a booking fee on top of this!) Complete rip off! I have no idea who would pay to go to this!

I noticed they cut the tri-tip wrong in the third photo.  You are supposed to cut against the grain not with the grain. You don't want a bunch of meat strings stuck in your teeth after you eat.

£30 for a standard ticket which DOESN'T include food or drink!

£5 for a small taster plate?? 

What a rip off


Had such a great day last year and soooo looking forward to this year. I'd highly recommend going along to the event and judging for yourself. Got loads included in the ticket and the food was outstanding. Entertainment was fun too. I wish I had arrived earlier to sample more, won't make that mistake again...

Heard about this event and wanted to go until I checked out their prices! Ridiculous! RIP OFF!
