So if you like a bit of posh nosh...

This is the most expensive Steak & Kidney experience so far, coming in at over £13.00 at The Spread Eagle at Sawley.
It is more like a restaurant in a pub so maybe that's why they think its worth the extra cash?
The dish was Homemade Steamed Steak & Kidney Pudding served on a long plate with a gravy boat, mash and mixed veg.
I have aired my views about steamed pudding before and one reason is that I'm not keen on the rather pale look of the pudding. However, I was in for a surprise as it tasted very nice indeed and wasn't soggy at all.
The pastry to filling ratio was spot on and the quality of the mash and veg was top notch, accompanied by plenty of tasty gravy.
In my opinion, it is was another good SPE (Steak Pie Experience) and the service was excellent as was the quality of food but because of the high price tag, I became distracted about value for money and so it gets an 8.
Its a nice place and well worth a visit if you're in the mood for some posh pie.


  1. Hmmmm, sorry but a steak pudding served in a nouveau cuisine stylee just doens't cut it for me! It needs to be covered in mushy pea's n gravy and accompanied by a nice big portion of chips:P What is it they say, "you can take the girl out of Burnley, but you cant take Burnley out of the girl....";)!

  2. Aye, you Lancashire Lassies do know a thing or two about food eh! Bring on the chips!!
