This is our favourite venue and am now very pleased that the pie has made a return to the menu. I personally feel that this new pie has eclipsed the previous pie, so well done management for a procurement coup.

It has been a long trip, though glad we made the blade of beef and Rioja pie even better. Thank you for your patience
