Top 10 | Pancakes in London

Frying pans at the ready. Pancake Day 2018 falls on Tuesday February 13, meaning that its time to go flipping mad. Whilst some may be more into perfecting their toss at a Shrove Tuesday pancake race, whether it be sprinting towards the finish line or just spectating. Most of you will prefer the DIY approach, or have someone make them for you. Here’s my roundup of the top 10 spots for pancake day in London – have fun, but just don’t get too battered in the process.
