Our Classes

!!! Thank you for your interest in booking a Butchery Class.
Due to COVID-19 we have suspended all classes for the time being. !!!  
Owing to the layout of our sites where our classes are traditionally held we will likely be waiting until early next year to resume as we want to make sure all our guests and team will be 100 % safe before bringing our classes back. Any vouchers with an expiration date in March 2020 or going forward will be honoured as soon as we are back up and running.
Feel free to contact Pip at butcheryclasses@thegingerpig.co.uk to discuss your booking further.


A fabulous gift experience for those who would like a hands-on lesson in meat and traditional butchery skills. This is an opportunity for our guests to try their hand at light butchery and learn more about where their meat comes from, pick up a new skill and get the most from each cut. We can promise a fun and relaxed evening hosted by some of our most experienced and charming butchers. Plus, there’s a two course informal meal at the end and you get to take the substantial joint you have prepped or plentiful sausages you have made to feast on at home. Scroll down for more information on our classes.

Classes run Monday - Saturday 7-10.30pm, and Sundays 4-7.30pm at Moxon Street, and at Borough Market on Wednesday to Friday 6.30-10pm, and Saturdays 4-7.30pm. Please see our bookings calendar for accurate availability. Buy a voucher online or in any of our eight shops.

For corporate or group bookings, please call 0203 869 7804. We can accommodate  12-16 in Moxon Street and 10-12 people in Borough Market. Unfortunately we can't book out a class exclusively for less than the aforementioned numbers.

Please note - we release butchery class dates one month in advance (eg, August's dates will be released in late June). If you cannot see the date you want in the future, email us, or check back with us in a few weeks.
