Popped up there and had a steak & oyster pie today. Must've been BYO cheese day. Pastry was a bit weak, barely holding the pie together. There wasn't a lot of oyster, or steak for that matter. It was more blowing oyster on the tongue than fekkin full of oyster kent, which is fine by me. Positive experience overall but probably wouldn't make the mission again.
My preferred pie within reasonable distance of work is from Saint Honores in Birkenhead. Not classy by any means, just pastry that doesn't flake everywhere, and the filling's alright too. Runner up is Green Apple in Northcross, golden award-winning sorta pies.
