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.
