If the Commercial Inn at Slaithwaite delivers the true benchmark in excellence when it comes to Pork Pies, then this accolade has to be given to the Crusty Cob in Ancoats (Manchester) when it comes to the Meat and Potato Pie.
The demand for these culinary delights means you may have to queue out of the premises especially at lunch and dinner time, but the wait is always worthwhile, and worth travelling for.
The pastry isn’t doughy, but always crisp without being brittle and fully filled consistently with meat, potato and a rich dark gravy which sometimes oozes out of the top in the baking process.
This pie has to rate a 9.1
