Butchers Pies
« on: Aug 25, 2004, 18:53 »
Here is a subject which is very close to my heart because it's how I actually met my wife.  It's a long story so I won't go into it but Mrs Skem and myself are both fond of a nice butchers pie.

My wife favours the old pork pies which were sold by Coombses of Spennymoor (now closed), wheras I favour the steak pies from Forsters Butchers of Spennymoor.

Coates Butchers of Coxhoe does do very good sausages.

Can anyone recommend any good butchers in the area which do very good pies?

Please don't include Robson's Fresh Foods of Front Street Stanley.

.

If you ever get as far as Great Ayton, between Middlesbrough and Stokesley try Petch's meat pies, on the main street. Noted in the press and on TV as top tasting.

Think i'll rename the Pub Grub board to Eating and put all these posts there. There seems to be enough to justify it.

Not sure about their pies but as you mentioned Coates of Coxoe, I have to say they do the best saveloy that I have ever tasted.

I remember, when I was a first year apprentice at the training centre in Aycliffe (1982), we used to get Jim's pies delivered to the canteen. They were bl**dy lovely,washed down with a cup of tea. Sometimes we would run to Jim's factory unit, at lunchtime. There you could buy chips which were covered in the savoury mince and gravy that went into the pies.... Ooooh... I can taste it now! Those were the days.

Savoury mince on chips sounds nice.  I can almost taste it.

Strange but my wife says when she was a kid, her mother often used to make the family a meal of "mince on toast" which doesn't really conjour up the same sort of picture.

Anybody get the pies from Taylors in Darlo? Some of them are very tasty. If you can't get to Darlo, then the chippy in Chilton do them too.

Taylors in Darlo


Whenever I'm in Darlo I always call there for a ham & chutney melt.  Basically a baguette, split down the middle, filled with roast ham and chutney and topped with molten cheese.  Yum!
