Unruly Nights: Guest Chef Dinners with the UK's Top Gastropubs




Rob Tecwyn from The Baring in Islington, London cooks at The Unruly Pig – June 19th 2024


We are thrilled to announce our next Unruly Guest Chef night with Chef Rob Tecwyn will take place at The Unruly Pig on June 19th, 2024.

Chef Rob Tecwyn and front-of-house Adam Symonds are the brains behind The Baring gastropub located in Islington, London. Their vision for the pub was simple: “We just wanted to do the sort of food we like – light and clean – but in a pub.’ Their star is certainly in the ascendancy nationally as The Baring has  attracted so much deserved praise and publicity in the press. They first opened The Baring gastropub in late 2022 and were nominated for GQ Magazine 2023 Pub of the Year and won the Highest New Entry Award at the Estrella Damm 2023 UK Top 50 Gastropubs Awards (which was held at The Unruly Pig – in our back garden!). Barely two years in they have already reached the position of number 26 in Top 50 Gastropubs 2024 list.

Head Chef Rob Tecwyn has worked at several prestigious London restaurants including Moro, Morito, Kerridge’s Bar and Grill, Orasay and Six Portland Road. Most recently he was Oliver Dabbous’ Head Chef at the famous Dabbous restaurant.

The very first in Unruly Night, with guest chef Chef Steve Smith, from the Freemasons Arms, Wiswell was a huge success, great fun and set the bar so high.The second in the series was when we welcomed Tom De Keyser, Head Chef of  The Hand & Flowers in Marlow (owned by celebrity chef Tom Kerridge) which has been awarded two Michelin stars. The evening was a rip roaring, sell out success.The next in the series was when we then welcomed Head Chef, Liam Dillon and his team ofThe Boat Inn, Lichfield at The Unruly Pig. It was another evening of contrasting cooking styles and, again, another cracking event. Next came, Adam Handling MBE and Head Chef Steven Kerr from The Loch & The Tyne, Old Windsor. The event sold out in seconds. A frequent TV personality, Michelin-starred Adam Handling was deservedly awarded an MBE in the King’s New Year’s honours list. See the reel below which says it all – it was a glorious collaboration dinner. Next in the series came Head Chef Will Webster and his lovely team from the Shibden Mill Inn in Halifax It was another hugely successful event: great fun with exceptional food . The most recent guest chef was Dom Chapman from The Crown in Burchetts Green. Dom has a legendary reputation nationally and is hugely respected by the very best chefs in the UK. A fantastic collaboration with Dom’s classical, seasonal and heartwarming dishes.
