Triple Eagles Crag Treat

British Pies

It’s been a few weeks since I last reported on the Eagles Crag Crusty Pie Company, I had bought one each of their “Meaty Fillings” Pies. I have already discussed the excellent “curry in a pie” Lamb Bhuna offering so now time to look at the other 3. The Coq au Vin (Chicken, bacon and …

Simplicity Rules The Day

British Pies

I’ve discovered another true local bakery, Browns bakery of Heywood.  From my own experience, if you don’t know where Browns Bakery is, in what to me was the labyrinth of streets near Pilsworth road, you would miss it.  And that would be a shame.
