Officers from the dog section at West Yorkshire Police tweeted that they were on the way to the "large fight" in Bradford on Saturday night, which led to three arrests.
The tweet said: "All started over a pork pie apparently!"
The force received a call at 7.21pm on Saturday calling for assistance after an "ongoing disturbance" at the Harold Club on New Works Road in Low Moor, Bradford.
A force spokeswoman said: "A number of officers attended and the matter was quickly brought under control.
"The section of the premises open to the public was closed to prevent any further problems. However, the members-only area remained open for business. Police units resumed from the scene shortly after 8pm.
"Two arrests were made for assault, with those arrested being bailed pending further inquiries. Another person was arrested for a public order matter and has been given a fixed penalty."
