Stiff upper lips needed for charity
Handlebar, Hungarian, Dali, English, Imperial, freestyle, horseshoe, pencil, toothbrush and even walrus are just some of the fine examples of moustaches you might glimpse this Movember at The Devonshire Arms in Chiswick. All the staff - excusing the girls of course – are setting down their razors to see who can grow the best ‘mo and inviting their customers to support them.
From 1 st – 30 th November for every ‘Spitfire pie and a pint’ menu sold, £1 will go to the Movember charity, committed to raising awareness of prostate cancer. Head chef David Faunch has put together a full range of pies for the occasion from big pies for the whole table to individual pies for those that just don’t like to share.
The Spitfire Pie and Pint menu will cover everything from the great classics such as steak and Portobello mushroom, fish pie and chicken and leek to pies including steak and oyster, venison and prune, skate cheek and langoustine and veal, celeriac and tarragon with the choices changing daily there’s every excuse to show support as many times as possible…it is for charity after all.
Spitfire, Shepherd Neame’s premium Kentish ale and official Movember 2011 partner, has teamed up with The Devonshire Arms. As an official licensed partner of the RAF, Spitfire is encouraging MoBros to channel their inner pilot throughout November and style their ‘tache according to the Queen’s ‘RAF Guidelines’, a set of rules from the head of State outlining the correct manner to style one’s ‘tache.
To kick start Movember, there will be an official ‘Movember pie dinner’ on the 1st November hosted by Nick Gibson, owner of The Devonshire Arms and Drapers Arms in Islington, and Spitfire Ale. Hywell Mills, the European manager for Movember will be there to answer any facial hair related queries.
Bookings now being taken. Be warned…imitation moustaches will not be accepted.
