British Pie Week at The Butcher's Shops
We Brits take our pies very seriously and even have a week dedicated to our savoury to prove it.
In 2016 a petition entitled: 'Make wrongly describing a casserole with a pastry lid as a pie a criminal offence' achieved 5,687 signatures.
"For too long customers in pubs and restaurants have ordered what is described on the menu as a pie only to be served with casserole in a pot covered by a puff pastry lid. This is not a pie and is also curiously difficult to consume."
The Oxford English Dictionary describes a pie as "A baked dish of fruit, or meat and vegetables, typically with a top and base of pastry."
You'll be pleased to know, therefore, that our pies are fully encased in a delicious layer of pastry! Celebrate British Pie Week 2017 with us and choose from:
Chicken and Mushroom (large and small)
Steak and Kidney
Steak and Potato
Steak and Ale
Steak and Blue Cheese
