Nope. Spinach imo yes.
Pie and (insert any food type) is everyday fodder in Wigan.
Cheese and onion pie
Bacon and egg pie
Chicken and ham pie
Fish pie ( with smoked haddock, cod, salmon prawns and spinach)
Steak and kidney
Also used to love the Chicken Balti pies at Maine Road
How weird. Surely most foods have a risk of disappointment? Live a little!

Pies by Post - Home
The pies from the Lochinver Larder are the only pies I would discuss at length or go to an effort to purchase. Although by post seems pointless - a bit like drinking warmish Lemoncello in Bolton on a rainy wednesday afternoon - their beauty is rather dependent on location and activity. A hike in the Highlands with a Lochinver pie in your pocket is a thing of wonder. Even sitting in the car park on a rainy day in Lochinver having one of these pies is a pretty good event. By post they would loose their appeal for me. Any of their pies are good although the smoked haddock and rhubarb (separate pies not some hipster mixture) are my top two. I don't think they have pies in Iceland - the nearest I have seen is a pie ish cake called 'Happy Marriage Cake'.
Going to make an FEB pie this week as a starter. Also got chicken/leek + potato/corned beef pies planned.
This is my preferred pie company:
Brockleby's » Food with Provenance
Usually go for the Moo & Blue Pie (Steak, Stilton & Ale). They do a few good deals if you stock up from one of their market stalls.
A fucking classic of the genre
Nice but wtf are with their delivery charges?
Delivery charges: £12.95 on orders up to £29.99, £5.95 on orders between £30 and £79.99, and free delivery on orders £80 and over.
Is it possible to get owt other than pies in Wigan?
They'd have to fuck that green muck off but the pies look like they might be ok. Pie and mash is a bit hit and miss in London these days.
That is shit
I generally pick up at market stalls.
It's all very well all this talk of pies, please spare a thought for the humble Cornish Pasty as it may well be losing it's protected status after brexit, in which case we could be swamped with cheap and nasty American versions of it.
Apart from here:
M.Manze - Pie and Mash. London's oldest pie and mash shop.
To be fair there are already ample cheap and nasty UK versions of it which people can easily avoid.
Hmmm. They look ok but five and a half quid for an individual pie's a bit steep and I'm not sure how much I'd trust anyone who suggests reheating by microwave, albeit in conjunction with an oven.
I was actually thinking of Manze's when I posted. The last couple of times I've been in it's been pretty average.
Because it's protected, only true and proper pasties can be grown in Cornwall.
do not accept cheap and nasty imitations.
That is bad to hear
Ginsters and such?
Decent?? Hmm well it's spoons standard
At least Ginsters are based in Cornwall and privately owned. Maybe they will get bought by Unilever, craft or some such one day.
I think Eccles cakes might have breached the m602/m62 barrier.
Our lass has done us proud
The main brand isn't made in Eccles - the factory is down the road towards Hyde/Ashton way. Definitely over the border from Salford.
It's disastrous. The pies were stodgy and the mash was tasteless. I thought they probably had a bad day and went back a few weeks later but it was the same. Upon investigation I was reliably informed by multiple other aficionados that standards have dropped pretty much across the east end and the only reliable old-school p&m gaff left is Castle's in Camden. I'm thinking of getting the police involved.
Adding roe could solve the problem...
Think the best 'eating out' pie I have ever had was at the Guinea Grill in Mayfair. Not cheap but was usually on expenses #haggling for work.
