I think that would make me feel very unhealthy.

There's a Manze's in Sutton. I also chanced upon Harringtons in Tooting a few years ago.

Not a massive fan if I'm honest, maybe 'cos I didn't try it 'til later in life. I remember going for the first time with a mate when I was 17-18 when I was doing work experience round Lambeth and being really hungover. He told me i'd sort me out, but the parsley sauce just made it worse. Always skip the liquor now.

Last time I had it was from Cookes in Broadway Market

I use to have a problem with eating P&M outside of London, but i have to say my favourite shop at the moment is the one in Waltham Abbey.
It really is superb.My old favourite was Clarkes in ec1,bujt that sadly shut in 2013.
Anyone in or near Waltham Abbey give it a go

A little piece of heaven. But make sure you liberally douse with vinegar.

There have been a few places spring up here in Essex but I have never found one that is proper. I'm not sure why but they don't really get it right.

That picture looks like an abomination.

And yes, I'm northern - thankfully so if it means not having to eat dishes like that.

Give me rag pudding with chips, gravy, and mushy peas please.

What's the meat in them pies like? I'm picturing nicely cooked chunks of beef, but suspect "rats coffins" may be somewhat closer.

Nope. Minced beef or mutton.

Just have one, you big tart. Pie & mash & liquor is one of those things where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I promise you you'll love it. :thup:

I'm tempted to try it too.

I think I'll find somewhere before or after the march for the Southampton game.

Excellent stuff. Full reviews though gentlemen, if you do take the plunge. Where did you go, was it busy, spoon or knife, did you flip your pie, did you go mental with the vinegar, first impressions on the liquor, which tasty beverage did you employ to wash it all down, etc. etc. A full My First Time by Daniel/Mega Ron aged 15/66¾ type of thing. :thup:
