I’ve been able to spend a bit of time in North Yorkshire before the ‘tiers’ of the COVID clown enforced more essential movement restrictions. Great Ayton, a small village just north of Stokesley and just south of Middlesbrough was my base for exploring. A village with two butchers!
One, Stokesley Butchers, had provided my lunch (see previous reviews) and Petch Butchers was to provide my evening meal in my AirBnB.
Now this was a Chicken Pie, and it was a large pie! In addition, what drew me to it was its homemade look and feel. It didn’t look like it had come from a uniform pie tray and press, this looked like something my Grandma would have made. Very appealing.
The shortcrust pastry was quite thin so didn’t dominate the pie. The feature of this pie was its abundance of large pieces of extremely tender, lightly seasoned chicken, in a subtle yet creamy sauce. This really was a traditional chicken pie that could have fed a small family but I was happy to share it between just the two of us.
Petch Butchers had got my attention when I read 44 out of 55 TripAdvisor ratings were excellent. I for one, won’t disagree!
I give this pie a very tasty score of 8.4
