A Newmarket pub is asking local foodies to come up with a recipe for a new pie dish to be featured on a specials menu later this year.

The Bull in the High Street, which is owned by Greene King, is calling for aspiring pie-connoisseurs to submit their culinary creations online including details of their perfect pastry, meat, vegetable and sauce combination.

The overall winner will bag themselves a £500 prize and the title of Greene King’s first official Great British ‘Pastriot’. Two runners up will each receive a £100 cash prize.

Colette McKernan, general manager at the Bull, said: “We decided to mark the launch of our Best of British festival by launching a competition to find a new twist on one of Britain’s best dishes, the humble pie.

“We are hoping to find pies that are both creative and delicious in equal measure; whether it’s an old favourite, a personal speciality or a classic pie with a modern twist. We can’t wait to see what the Newmarket community come up with.”

Participants have until Friday April 22 to enter their pie designs on the Bull Facebook page,
