Had a fantastic and unusual lunch yesterday. My friend decided straight away that she wanted the curry but I'd seen the above on the menu and couldn't resist. It was called the Pie Collection and consisted of four mini pies (they look bigger in the picture), one cottage pie, one steak and ale, one chicken and mushroom, and one spiced steak and kidney, all in pastry that melted in the mouth. The pies came with a dish of scalding hot creamed potato, a dish of mushy peas, and a jug of delicious gravy. It's a pity the camera didn't capture the wooden platter which had ornate carving on the ends. I ate like a king and could hardly move afterwards .... ooooh but it was worth it. The wine was a new one called Divine ... it was too!
