It had been a long but rewarding morning, walking the coastal paths and beaches from Craster to Lower Newton and then from Seahouses on to Bamburgh. Ready for a well-deserved break we stumbled upon the Copper Kettle tearoom in Bamburgh near to the castle. Browsing the menu I was immediately drawn to the freshly baked pies section! All the pies were made on the premises using local ingredients. The choices available were Steak, Minted Lamb, Pork, Apple and Stuffing and last but not least Haggis, Neeps and Tatties. After careful consideration I ordered the Minted Lamb and rested my feet, waiting with anticipation.
On arrival it was clear this was no shy pie cowering in a tin foil tray, but a majestic fortress of a pie, perched proudly on a moat of mash potato, mushy peas and thick, glistening gravy. Breaking through the ramparts of soft pastry exposed the rich filling of shredded lamb and chopped mint – a classic combination. The smooth mash, vibrant mushy peas and homemade gravy complemented the pie perfectly. I thoroughly enjoyed this pie and the large portion set me up for the remainder of our afternoon exploring the Northumbrian coastline.
