I would kill for one of their Pork Pies! I worked in a butchers shop after school but Bywaters PP and sausages were the BEST :)

Sorry to disagree Richarddye our village butcher makes his own pork pies and won awards for the pies and also his black pudding . One of the countries his BP came first was Germany , which knocked their blutwirst into a cocked hat

Viv it's funny you've mentioned that , 1969/71 when I worked at a firm on Upper Gough St . We used to call into The Gough Arms after the days toil . My mate used to have a pasty which the gaffer used to thrown a cold one into some sort of heater , I asked for a pork pie , which accidently ended up in the heater . Strangely enough it tasted ok , so I ordered another the test was over after the second one both tasted very nice , I haven't had another one since though .

Hot pork pies are quite common in some shops in Yorkshire, especially if kept hot fresh from the oven . I once, in Otley, said "I dont need them hot", to which he looked at me rather strangely and replied "They re all hot" . They were delicious, though likely are not the same recipe as ones further south

Yes Mike that’s how I came to discover the hot pork pie. My mum (from York’s) was always in the market for a hot pie. Even when she was in a care home (and on a controlled diet) her brothers would sneak in a hot pork pie from the local butchers shop. Tut, tut, tut ...... her one guilty pleasure. Viv.

Yes Pete the jelly is molten and drips a bit if you are not careful. But remember the jelly is molten when the pie is made. I only wish I was in Otley now - hot pork pie and proper nice fish and chips. To hell with turkey.

Too true Mike. Chips cooked in beef dripping too. When I was young and often stayed with my Nan in Yorkshire, one of the best memories of all was the smell of beef dripping on the air (except on Mondays - difficult to get fresh fish). Viv.

There was a restaurant near where we used to live in the US. They served two three things, steak, lobster and chip (French fries) cook in the beef dripping. all i wanted was the chips, they were SO good! Extra crispy.

Talking of pies, in Glasgow the classic pie there is the mutton pie. Served with a topping of Baked beans and chips it’s a super meal.
