I don't like loose ends... so, here we are again at The Alma, Laneshawbridge but this time I'm after the Steak & Kidney Pudding with their special herb recipe suet pastry, which is priced at a whopping £10.95!!!
As you can see it looks OK, if a little undercooked but I guess that is to be expected as its been steamed?
Its on the menu with exactly the same accompaniments as the plate pie so not much to talk about there.
The pudding itself is not dissimilar to a chip shop pud but its twice the size with some decent chunks of meat and kidney too.
On a personal level, I would have cooked the pudding a little while longer, as I don't like it when its soggy and difficult to distinguish whether its raw suet or not.
So, we come to a final score for this home made Suet Pudding at £10.95.
Its OK as far as steak pudding chips and gravy goes and that's it. I don't think the surroundings, good service and an average partner to chips and peas warrants such a high price. It gets an overall score of 6.4 on the pie chart.
