Whilst at the Marathon events at World Athletics Championships (as a spectator!) it would have been remiss of me not to nip up to the Battersea Pie Station in Covent Garden.
The Battersea Pie Station was founded in 2007 and this wasn’t the first time I’d visited – so I was looking forward to returning. I sampled the Chicken and Mushroom which came served with mash and a small jug of rich gravy. The filling was succulent and filled with fresh chicken and mushroom in a casing of puff pastry – as claimed in its marketing “all our pies are made with proper old-fashioned pastry, free range meat and fresh vegetables – all sourced where possible from right here in the British Isles”
So what was it like? Well I definitely wasn’t disappointed and little had changed in the preceding years since my last visit with the quality, taste and texture of the pie (with a liberal coating of gravy) living up to expectation, although the size was slightly on the small size with just average depth.
However, if you are ever in the Covent Garden area I would recommend to search out the Battersea Pie Station. It’s well worth a visit!
