    Eh? A subject close to most of our hearts. What type of pies? And why are they so stupendously ace?

    Your nominations please

    Extra points are awarded if I can go there for tea tonight. I have a hankering for pie

    Fire away….

    Pook took me to a pub in Sheffield that had pork pies in a basket on the counter. I will go back there and try one…

    It appears that spending time on here, albeit purposefully in the abuse of hora, has begun to leach Northerness from your very soul.

    1. The only acceptable foodstuff served in a pub should come in a crinkly packet; Crisps, peanuts, scampi fries and so on.
    2. The concept of a ‘restaurant’ serving a pie is not one I am prepared to subscribe to.

    The natural habitat of the pie is the chippy, the perfect location for consumption of said pie is a bus stop. That’s why they have seats in.

    I suggest a little reflection is in order, perhaps while wearing a proper vest and a flat cap.

    Porters in Covent Garden does a pretty good pie but I have a soft spot for the Square Pie co. Nothing like wandering around London (or Heathrow) stuffing your face with pie and mash and peas and gravy.

    Easy, the best (in the world) is “Pi” in Chorlton.

    They sell pie minister pies, and there are no better.

    the blake? nags? fagans? loads of pubs in sheffield have pork pies.

    fagans is the ultimate food place though.

    a lass i work with ordered a meatless pie there.

    when it arrived it was the size of a house, and had noticeable large pieces of beef on top of it…

    beef?… we asked… isn’t this a meatless pie?

    hell yes,… says big man… that meat is in our gravy.

    Fagans gravy is like a hearty casserole. their pies are the size of most pub’s plates.

    ergo…

    Fagans, Broad Lane in Sheffield

    proper pub pies.

    See? See what you’ve done?

    Chorlton is bad enough, but the thought of a pie in that London? In that Convent Garden?

    Shame on you binners, shame.

    Blimey, that’s bringing back some memories. Used to go in there when they opened back in the mid-seventies (I worked in The Hexagon at the time). They certainly served up a good choice of tasty pies. They still there?

    The 2in1 pie at the Weighbridge Inn in Nailsworth is something every man should try:

    I’m sorry crikey! I really didn’t think Convent Garden would crop up. Honestly I didn’t! I’m not leaking northerness, am I?

    The only reason I’m asking is because the pub that does my favourite pie is having the kitchens done out this week, so I need an alternative for my fix 😥

    Porters? Nah. That’s for the tourists.

    http://www.rules.co.uk/menus/ is where it’s at.

    Their S&K is sublime.

    Pie & Pint night – £8 for pie & pint, lovely thick shortcrust pastry pie (top & bottom) – choice of steak, chicken or veg, served with their delicious triple cooked chips and a load of veg.

    Spot on after a chilly ride on the downs!

    This place, The Farmers Boy in Gloucestershire is trying to build up a reputation as a top purveyor of specialist pies. Not tried it myself, seems a bit posh for pies 8)

    pork pie nirvana:

    between Oldham and Ashton….

    http://www.bestporkpie.co.uk

    it’s not a pub though sorry!

    That picture disgusts me. It’s an outrage to claim that a pot of stew or whatever it is with a pastry lid is a pie, it’s not a pie, it’s a travesty.

    I usually make my own but if time doesn’t allow I like the pies from http://www.therealpieco.co.uk/ they have an excellent filling to air ratio and very good ingredients.

    Actually it was rules I was thinking about. I just googled Pie Covent Garden and ended up with the wrong end of that particular stick

    Neither a pub nor a restaurant, however Ferg Bakery in Queenstown NZ sell some rather spectacular pies.

    Thats if you manage to not get drawn in to Ferg Burger net door which sell what are widely considered to be the BEST BURGERS IN THE WORLD.

    To take pity on you Binners, the Ring o’bells in Marple is my local and the pies there are bloody lovely – the game pie is excellent, the steak & ale is nice and the Steak and Kiddley pudding is great. Proper chips too, and nice bar staff.

    Cheekyboy, the Bull in Ambrige gets great reviews too.
    Good pies. Mr Pullen swears by them.
    New Welsh chef, apparantly.

    Very nice young lady behind the bar too, but she’s leaving to run some poncy wine bar.

    What’s wrong with you binners?
    You should be baking your own lad.
    Remember Dr P’s breakfast pie, meal for champions.

    For you Southerners it’s a ‘quiche’.

    Bunnyhop – Dr P is an icon, who inspired me to cook my own version of the breakfast pie…

    It’s the Fisherman’s Retreat. Steak from their own herd, proper pastry, a lake of gravy and a mountain of chips. Just the job if you’ve walked over the moors to get there.
