Dear Chris, very sorry to hear of your pork pie disappointment. I’m glad to read that you will visit again - please do, and I hope the pies live up to expectation next time.
I came here for cheese and crackers, and I got a bespoke gourmet tour of the options. There should be more of this sort of thing on our high streets. If you have access to a fridge, what are you waiting for? Bring it on!
