Steak & Ale Pie, Valley Butchers...Best Pie Ever?

Possibly the best Pie ever?

The Pie tribe have been lucky this week to spend time on Anglesey one our favourite places and home to master purveyors of all things meat, Valley Butchers.

The weather was not kind, blowing a gale and lashing it down. So back to our accommodation and sit it out with a glorious Steak and Ale Pie to devour. 

What a delight from start to finish. The selection in the shop was poor but only because they were selling out as fast as they can make them. The pastry was excellent, no air gap, great gravy, noticeably ale punch and chunks of meat to savour. It was definitely something to savour leading one Pie tribe member to offer a score of 10/10 for it.

Whilst this is a top Pie, easily in my current top 5, I cannot bring myself to offer 10/10, otherwise I may stop dreaming of pies. So on this occasion we will give it a 9.2/10. To test for consistency we bought two and neither disappointed !!! Service was great in the shop, pies are freshly made on the premises and can't wait to go again.
