    Holland’s pies are gross,much prefer the ones up here.Mind you go in a chippy and ask for peas and see what response you get!

    When I worked in a chippy, we had peas and beans on the menu. Problem was, it was exactly that on the menu “Peas & Beans – 25p“. You’d be amazed how many folk wanted both!

    If that upsets you, you really don’t want to know what actually goes in a “Scotch Pie”.

    Just found out, that the meat pie can be traced back to the Neolithic Period, around 9500 BC. Have Hollands been going that long. Must be the oldest company in the world!

    To get a decent pie in Scotland you need to go to one of their health food shops

    Pooles Pies. Thread closed.

    I like a hard pie that can take a bit of knocking about. Scotch pie may be alright but can you take them down the pit ? My dad, took is M & P pie down with him and heated it up on his old shovel. The Scotch pie would have fallen to bits in his back pocket.

    Your dad was lucky! My family couldn’t afford pies for down the pit. They made thick porage, poured it into a drawer to let it set and then cut it into slices.

    Masons pies are the shizzle

    Pie on a muffin…mmmmmm that’s my poison

    He did not buy them, he got us to work for them, we had to goto the side of the railway lines and pick up the loose bits of coal that fell from the carriages on the way to the local steel works. we got one pie for 1 bag of 112lb of coal, if we were lucky on a good day. 2 bags for 1 most days. This was before we walked 10 miles to school.

    Druidhs peas and beans tale reminds me of a tall tale my dad told me once. At level crossings in yorkshire the signs read ‘wait here while lights flash’. This saw many a fool sit in their Morris 1000 for an hour UNTIL the lights started flashing!

    Not quite a barm and not a stupid American sweet thing either

    No, My mum took them home first and cleaned each piece of coal with a brush. Because them at the big house on the hill did not like dirty coal. The master said to us before he beat us. “I don’t mind cheap coal, but dirty is not for me lads”.

    Thats something else “Barm and potato cakes” you don’t get up here nick lad!

    The chicken curry scotch pie from that chippy in clerk street makes all other pies irrelevant.

    (except pork pies obviously but they’re in a category of their own)

    I’ve quite taken a liking to toasted potato scones with a poached egg atop for brekkie since moving up here.Don’t think I’ll ever be tempted by Irn Bru though πŸ˜€

    Are you mad?

    One thing the frock wearing alcoholics CAN do well is a decent pie.

    Scotch pies are just stunning.

    If you really have Hollands withdrawl (its a long time since I’ve checked as there isn’t a branch round here) but you might get packs of them frozen in Farmfoods.

    Simple Simon pies are very good but they’re a posh pie and unfortunately your local posh deli probably won’t stock them any more as Waitrose seem to be hoovering them all up.

    If you are passing Ayrshire then Brownings pies are better than the mean.

    I once saw a pie on a pizza, deep fried in a Glasgow chippy, Paisley Road West IIRC

    At the time I thought that was a marvellous idea but didn’t follow it up with an order for one πŸ™‚

    Did you go for the Stonner instead?

    I was once up on the north east coast and saw some nice suet looking pies in the warmer, so asked for that and chips. My chat to my mate was interrupted by a strange sizzling dark brown bubbling grease mass on the side as I queried to the woman she began chucking pizzas in the fryer for the person behind. apparently the warmer was for warning and the fryer was to get it to proper temperature.Madness it was also awful as I had to try it πŸ˜‰
