Thwaite's Market Steak & Kidney pies
Made a trip to Metheun recently, and of course, Thwaites was included.
Great stuff: Scotch eggs, greek sausage, and of course the pies. Here's a Steak & Kidney pie, medium size. Savoury Duck (aka faggots) on the side.
Also hit Raymonds Turkey Farm, about 8 minutes north of Thwaites. Excellent Turkey pies.
I may go early, but at least going happy.
Love the pub pies (especially the tomato & sausage), scotch eggs, and savory ducks. I'd heard of British-style faggots but didn't know what they were like, exactly; when I was up at Thwaites last time, the 'pie guy' asked if I'd been to England or Wales, and when I said yes, he said "well, these are faggots. We just don't call them that... for obvious reasons."
Glad you liked the pies..I have never tried the lamb or the steak and kidney because neither of those are my thing..but everything at Thwaites is good. Those little pub pies are filling and made fresh all the time.
Also..everything at Raymond's is good. I am there once a month ( at least)...although I usually pass on the pies. They are good..but a bit too heavy for my taste.
Yes , I love the scotch eggs, make my own but when they come out warm there great, I live up in NH and when my friends know I'm going I normaly have to get a dozen , lol
I also like the lamb pie, And being from Wales can't resist the [duck]aka Faggots, every butcher shop in Wales made there own, real tasty old time fast food
