Win £1000 in The Newbury’s recipe competition in aid of West Berkshire MENCAP!

Fancy getting one of your culinary creations onto the menu of the Newbury Pub and winning £1,000 too?

The award-winning pub on Bartholomew Street is partnering with West Berkshire MENCAP to come up with an eye-catching, and of course, delicious main course for their a la carte menu.

There’s a £1,000 cash prize for the winning recipe and £1 for West Berkshire MENCAP every time the dish is ordered by a customer.

How to Enter

Your recipe needs to include clear step-by-step instructions on how it’s prepared and cooked, plus where the ingredients can be sourced locally

Email your recipe with your name, profession and contact number to enquiries@thenewburypub.co.uk by Saturday 30 June.

Live Demonstration of Finalist Recipes

The best three recipes will then be cooked in front of a panel of judges including a TV chef (to be announced shortly), Newbury Pub owner Pete Lumber and West Berkshire Mencap CEO Leila Ferguson on Sunday 8th July.

All finalists will be given some assistance and tips by the Newbury’s head chef Gary Basham on the evening.

Newbury owner Pete Lumber said: “We think this is an innovative way to see what dishes local customers would like to see on our popular menu and hope it will raise funds for West Berkshire Mencap. We like to support local charities and this is a brilliant one that has really won me over with their support for local people with learning disabilities and their families despite limited resources.”

Leila Ferguson added: “We are so grateful to the Newbury Pub for helping us in such a fun way. Pete has a real talent for finding inventive ways of helping the local community and we are lucky he has chosen us as one of his beneficiaries.  Anyone over the age of 16 can enter and be in with a chance of winning the huge £1,000 prize!

“We are very much looking forward to playing the part of Gregg Wallace and John Torode while raising money at the same time.”
