Although our media presence has been absent (problems with computers I hear!) our Pie eating has not stopped. During the past year I have been renovating an old Chapel type building in the Lake District and my ‘go to’ cafe for lunch and breaks has been The Old Post Office Tea Room at Troutbeck.
It has a lovely community feel and is run by Gary (an ultra runner) and his wife Jane who besides offering some ‘corner shop’ needs, offers snacks, cakes, sandwiches and most importantly (for me) pies. The meat and potato pies are sourced by ‘Crazy cupcake kids’ and they are served with either baked beans or beetroot. Very nice.
The thing that makes these meat and potato pies special is that they are more steak and potato. Sometimes with a meat and potato pie it ends up being a potato pie with an after thought of meat – but this is different. When I first experienced them I was very happily surprised at the quality and texture of the meat. Excellent!
I would highly recommend both the Old Post Office Tea Room at Troutbeck and the pies. Go in for a chat.
