There is nothing that can prepare you for the sheer awesomeness that is Meatopia- for the commited carnivore, this place is heaven! Following our Deer Butchery demo on the cutting room stage back in 2014, 2016 gave us the honour of bringing Venison to the good people of London! We will be butchered 6 deer throughout the day and served up 2 different taster dishes all cooked over live fire.
