Get Fit For Pies

Spring has arrived, the clocks have gone forward and it's time for some serious exercise. Lose some weight and there's more room for Pies! So with due diligence the Pieman set of for a walk through the fields and woods around Burwardsley on Sunday afternoon.

Fantastic weather, fantastic views and a few calories burnt off. Unfortunately a Snugburys ice cream and a pint of mead at the wonderfully located Pheasant Inn negated all the good effort!!

No pies consumed but checked the excellent menu available at the Pheasant Inn which has a good reputation for its fodder.

However Steak, Weetwood Ale and Mushroom Pie under a puff pastry lid , served with hand cut chunky chips and garden peas @£9.45 seems a tad on the pricey side. As it has a lid does this qualify as a Pie????

However if anyone wishes to sponsor me to test this gastronomic offering I'll give it a go. Alternatively various wildlife was spotted which could be used in the making of a home made pie such Cows, Sheep, Masses of Pheasants, Squirrels......?
