Great British Menu Drinking Game

Raise a glass to the Comic Relief edition of Great British Menu!

Following the success of our Great British Bake Off Drinking Game, we thought we’d introduce the Great British Menu Drinking Game, the format of which is no less formulaic. Enjoy!

The chefs antagonise each other

Every time ‘Comic Relief’ or ‘Red Nose Day’ is mentioned

If the chef fails to inject any humour into the dish

When judging, instead of open criticism, the judge sceptically asks the chef a pointed question

Down your drink!
