Have your say

The Yorkshire Pie House does what it says on the tin and you don’t have to be Desperate Dan to appreciate the simple elegance of the idea.

Take a spartan waiting area and a few wooden tables, a pie selection including steak and ale, steak and potato, chicken and ham and a vegetarian option and Bob’s your uncle.

I went in on a Tuesday afternoon, and chose Steak and ale pie, chips, gravy and mushy peas, termed ‘the works’ on the menu. The pie had lean chunks of beef in a thick tasty gravy, with a firm crusty pastry. Unlike proprietary chip shop pies it was cut from a large home made slab. The chips were standard chunky fare and mushy peas in traditional style with gravy and mint.

The service was friendly and welcoming. A solid proposition in August and just what you need on a cold winter’s night. The meal was £4.99, excluding drinks.
