FAQs

I want to book for a group, how do I do this? 

If you would like to book for a group, you can simply buy your tickets above, and increase the number of people attending to the desired amount. The minimum booking number is two people, as we have a team of two at each bake station. If your party is an odd number, they may be paired up with someone new, which is where all great friendships and romances begin.

Can I hire the entire marque?

No problem. If you would like the entire marquee, just send us an email at contactus@thebiglondonbake.com and we can reserve a session for you. We are also attached to a rather fantastic pub, so your food and drink needs can be well looked after.

Can children attend?

Yes of course, we welcome families down every week. Our only bake off not available for children are sessions that begin after 8.00pm due to the license for our a-joining pub. 

Can I book just for myself?

Yes of course. We do have a minimum booking requirement of two people per station, but if you would like an entire bake station to yourself, you can! Just select two tickets, and process a booking for two people.

Are ingredients provided? 

Yes, just bring yourself! 

Can I buy a voucher for a friend or family?

Yes, please buy here

Staff were very friendly but this is event is ridiculously overpriced! We paid £80 to make a two tier cake. All the ingredients were pre measured. It is quiet costly on top of paying for train tickets etc. I expected a little more. Visited The Castle Tooting on 2018-05-19

I did the big London bake with a big group of my cousins & we loved it! Such a fun experience & it was like being in the real bake off tent! Fun task too (we made a royal wedding cake). The only criticisms I have were that the host could have been a little more enthusiastic & maybe had a microphone so we could hear the instructions at the back of the tent! Also the prize for the winners could have been a bit more substantial given the tickets were quite pricey eg a star baker apron! But overall I’d recommend the experience.... good fun!

Absolutely brilliant! I went with my mum and sisters as a birthday treat for Mum and couldn’t have been better! Staff were super friendly and so helpful, don’t worry if you can’t bake, they’re constantly on hand to help and Rochelle, the head baker was fabulous! She even taught us a few tips which I’ll def be using at home! Highly recommend, can’t wait to find an excuse to go again :) Visited The Castle Tooting on 2018-04-29

I booked this for my sisters hen doo and it was a great laugh. Great to do if you have a mixture of ages in your group! The downside was we got stuck in heavy traffic getting there so missed a good 40minutes so it all felt abit rushed (as there was another group in straight after us) But the staff and atmosphere were great and it was a good laugh! Nice pub at the front for drinks before/after too! Visited The Castle Tooting on 2018-04-21

Staff were very friendly but this is event is ridiculously overpriced! We paid £80 to make 6 biscuits from ingredients that were premeasured. We could have created the same results at home with an Aunt BessIe’s cake mix. Visited The Castle Tooting on 2018-04-05

We had a great time. Baking was fun and the tent is very similar to the “real one” - we would have liked to have been able to fail a bit more but I guess some people don’t see the hilarity in turning out something inedible!! Judging was a bit lacklustre but overall it was a great couple of hours out. Wish you could have a drink in there though!! Visited The Castle Tooting on 2018-03-30

A fun time had by all! The staff were all friendly and made time to talk to everyone baking. A great activity to do especially if you are fans off 'Bake off'. Location and premises are excellent. The only thing I would recommend they change is the way you are greeted, we arrived quite early having travelled a fair distance (at least 3 hrs away) but wanted to be in plenty of time. We waited in The Castle and had coffee / drinks (which by the way is excellent too), but I feel it would be good to be greeted by a member of the Big London Bake staff at least 15/20 mins before the start time to explain you go into the tent at your given start time and maybe offered a tea/coffee while you wait. Overall a great experience. Visited The Castle Tooting on 2018-03-17

Really dissapointed that we were unable to travel to London today due to the snow. We had booked this for our mum’s birthday. We have contacted the organiser who have advised we can’t change our booking as they’re able to get to work and the event is still running. They’ve also said it’s too short a notice - despite us trying to contact them during the week to say bad weather has been forecasted. Really gutted,this isn’t really my kind of thing, but my mum was soo excited. Now we’re all left really let down.

A lot of fun, really enjoyed ourselves. Like how you can make your bake your own with the 'creative corner' ! Shame about the no alcohol license - we bought drinks just before to go in with and had to leave them outside (they then got cleared away) Visited The Castle Tooting on 2018-02-11

Absolutely awesome day out; I would thoroughly recommend this experience for a date night/ group outing. The staff were welcoming, friendly and made the experience so very enjoyable for a novice baker such as myself! It is clear that they have an genuine passion for the event and were very attentive to everyone there. The atmosphere was relaxed with a little bit of a competitive element, recreating a true GBBO vibe. I left the tent with a big smile on my face and will be definitely returning again in the new year. 10/10.

Booked out the whole marque - 19 people attended for my friend’s hen party. The staff went above and beyond to cater for an assortment of food intolerances (severe nut allergy, vegan, milk and yeast intolerance) and allowed us to help prepare the tent to make it extra special for the bride to be. Really fun and everyone enjoyed the event. Marked down one star for confusing correspondence before the event which caused a bit of stress but event itself turned out fine.

This is such a fabulous evening! Took my sister & 2 nieces so was pretty competitive. Feels like you're really in the Bake Off tent. People running it are so helpful and enthusiastic. And amazingly our cake came out edible. Probably the quickest 90 mins of my life! You're on the go from the off. All ingredients laid out in front of you & a concise recipe to follow. Creation Corner is a great little addition for extras for decoration etc. I'm definitely going to book up & go again Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-11-10

We arrived a few minutes late due to traffic. That was our fault. By the time we got in, everyone was already baking, so we missed introductions, explanation, and any suggestions. The woman running the show was kind and considerate, and helped us get up to speed. The bad: we got harassed by one of the women tidying up for not following directions (which we missed by showing up late). She provided the instruction and it made a lot more sense (since it didn't follow the receipe). It bothered me that she couldn't have been considerate or a little friendly. The women cleaning up also kept taking our utensils that we were in the middle of using. All of my bowls and spoons kept dissappearing! In the end, my team finished early and we had a blast despite the above. We brought all of our things up front and it was very anticlimatic. She only reviewed 2 of the 18 items. It was very rushed, and sort of like we were getting kicked out of the tent. Id consider doing this again, but this experience was not really a good one overall.

The baking was fun and well organised but the helpers could do more to increase the atmosphere in the tent. The judging was also flat and it would have been much more fun to have feedback on the cakes as they were tasted so that they were compared to each other.

Amazing activity for a birthday or hen party! You get to take your creation home as well! My advice is: if you can bake, go with your gut as their instructions are too detailed, and; drink after you bake, not before! We had a few burn incidents and a lot of flat cakes! Great activity!

A brilliant idea and a great set up. The staff were really helpful, which was excellent but sometimes hey weighed in a littler strong. The judging process was a bit half-cooked (excuse he pun!) which was a shame as that's really the climax of the event. Had the end been more polished, I would have gladly given it a very chunky 5 stars. A good, fun and slightly different thing to do. Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-09-03

The experience was fantastic fun - highly recommended! Only suggestion would be that the bakes are not ALL judged, but that only the top 3 are commended. Commenting on all of them took a lot of time and wasn't fun for folk at the bottom end of the ranks! Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-08-16

The concept was lots of fun but I did find it a little bit lacking in some areas....For instance the work stations weren't too clean and the results at the end seemed a bit thrown together. Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-08-16

We had such a great day at The Big London Bake, I'd recommend to everyone! Situated in the beer garden of the Castle Pub, you can grab a drink before you start for some Dutch courage. - No drinks allowed in the tent. The bakes rotate each month, and all are perfect for two people to get stuck into (we made a meringue tart). The atmosphere was great - bright and airy work space with all you need measured out and ready, which also looks just like the bake-off tent! The staff are really helpful and will help you out if you are stuck, but it is pretty straight forward as you get step-by-step instructions. There is the little corner in the room with extra ingredients to make your bake more interesting and help you win those brownie points with the judges . The staff then judge the finished product at the end and then decide a winner. Overall, a great day out! Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-08-13

What a brilliant experience! A real challenge on the baking but tailored to all levels of experience, The staff under Tess were exceptionally calm and helpful, some how guiding and inspiring everyone so that we all took home stunning finished pies. So much laughter and camaraderie between the "contestants". We were there with a family baking against some 20 somethings and against some grandparents.... we all loved it.

Excellent night out and so much fun as it really feels like you're in the bake off tent. All the staff really helpful and giving good tips along the way. Amazing how competitive you get and the nerves at the judging at the end :) Highly recommended. Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-08-09

I went to the Big London Bake twice, once with my mum and once with my girlfriend. I scored 5th (boo) and 1st (yay) on each occasion and had a great time. The set-up of the tent is wonderful and really makes you feel like you are part of The Great British Bake-Off, with clear instructions to complete your chosen cake and all cooking equipment provided. The team were great and supportive and appear to have really responded well to the feedback of other reviewers, incorporating changes into the event from my first time. Would definitely recommend to all. Tip - Bring a large bag to carry your cake box in otherwise it'll end up in a pile of mush like ours did. Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-07-22

It was a fun experience but it wasn't without its flaws and for the amount you pay for the ticket, I was expecting more. First of all, when we started, we didn't have the full ingredients and had to ask for what we were missing, also it seemed as if our oven was running a lot hotter then others which didn't help, when we mentioned it, they were quick to blame other factors. It had been raining the day we went, and the rain was dripping onto half of our bench which made things inconvenient, they should have been better prepared for the rain. Only the winners ended up with something to take home, although with the amount we paid, I felt as if everyone should have received something just for participating but it was a fun time none the less!

We had so much fun! If you're at all a fan of Bake Off, I can't recommend this highly enough. It felt like stepping into a little baking fantasy, it was such a laugh. But I actually learned some new skills, too, as the bakers-in-charge/judges were so super helpful and lovely. Definitely check it out! Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-07-20

This was a birthday treat for my fiancé! Such a unique experience and we had a great time especially since we won lol! The set up and location was fab and the staff were so lovely. I would recommend it to anyone :) only gripe was that I was expecting for it to be choux pastry month, I was looking forward to the experience but ended up making a sponge. All round great evening even despite the extremely warm weather and having to bake in the heat. Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-07-08

Really cool experience and love the way the tent looked. Slightly disappointed that some of the staff were rude, especially the head baker (not sure if she was acting? Or just had an attitude problem) and also some of the flavourings etc were out of stock but we waited for 10mins to be told that so lost baking time. Otherwise really fun experience

a really cool event spoiled by a very miserable team. The head baker worked very hard and the set up is just like Bake off which is great. However the rest of the 'helpers' were at best unhelpful & worst rude. At the end of the session half of our goods were thrown in the bin by a staff member - meaning we were left with 5 eclairs after 90 mins work- not only disappointing, but £70 for 5 eclairs and some rude comments just isn't worth it.

Absolutely loved it! Great set up and really nice pastry chefs who help out and give you advice. Maybe at the end just do a top 3 rather than point out who came last because it put a bit of a downer on things especially as everyone was there to have fun. But overall it was a really great event Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-07-07

Loved it!!! Would definitely recommend this to anyone who fancies something a bit different. A friend has already booked it for September! I just wish that ALL the baking 'pros' would be consistent in their instructions and advice! And don't bake the genoise for 35 minutes!! Test at 20 and take out about 25!

Great set up as in the tent looks very much the real deal, however couldn't get over the head judge Rochelle's manner. She sucked all the fun out of the event treating us like children telling us exactly how she thought we should be baking, We were all there to have fun and it felt like she'd lost sight of this and thought it was great British menu instead! Also the fact that only three cakes get physically tasted is a bit mean, there were people that had come quite far for the event and then didn't get their cake tasted by the judges. Overall we liked the event, but tell Rochelle to lighten up. Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-07-02

*Such* a fun way to spend an afternoon! Whether you're a keen baker or just have the odd instagram-worthy masterpiece, you'll definitely have fun and pick up a few skills along the way. The hosts in our session were professional pastry chefs and super friendly. The tent set up is really cute and from the minute you walk in, the pressure is on - there's a star-baker spot up for grabs people! Perfect for mates, couples or family - is it too soon to come back?

Incredibly unorganised. The head baker was disinterested and unable to keep the time properly. Things weren't explained well at all. Shame as the other 2 members of staff were polite. Has the potential to be good! Visited The Castle Tooting on 2017-06-24

Better than the real thing! I attended their first event on a blazing Saturday morning and it was idyllic. While the Castle pub might not have the majesty of a stately home it more than makes up for it in atmosphere and a ready supply of booze. It genuinely has a bit of a Secret Garden feel as you go through the wooden doors at the back of the busy beer garden and enter into a baking wonderland. All the helpers are enthusiastic and give you the right amount of help, so you at least create something edible, even if it’s not quite as good as the expert’s effort. While I only knew my baking partner when I arrived it was a great social event to get involved with and everyone poured into the pub afterwards. I can see this being a huge success as the format works equally well for a date or any size bunch of mates.
