Hmmm.. pies.. Never had a Galloways. Must check them out Friday :)


Comment by Dave on 11th November 2009 at 07:46
Mmmm... Pie :-)


Comment by Cyril on 11th November 2009 at 15:39
Their chicken and sweetcorn pasties are very tasty and a nice change from the usual.


Comment by rubyshoes. on 11th November 2009 at 17:48
They have three shops in the town centre. Is it a coup lol.


Comment by Jon on 11th November 2009 at 18:46
Wigan is becoming full of Betting shops/Food outlets !

GALLOWAYS PIES ARE VERY GOOD...THE MINCED STEAK IS TO DIE FOR!!!


Comment by Ellen on 12th November 2009 at 20:04
Was trying to place this pic. Just now noticed what I believe to be a sign pointing to the Wiend, so that's my answer! So-- another question from a 40-plus year ex-pat, can anyone enlighten me about the origin and meaning of the word Mesnes? I grew up in Holland Moor,and would have known the word for most of my life, but never thought of questioning it until a few days ago; now it's "bugging" me!


Comment by jazz on 14th November 2009 at 18:52
galloways pies are rubbish-Hollands pies R best


Comment by Roy on 15th November 2009 at 12:31
Ellen,the word Mesnes or 'the mesnes' comes from the French demesne, meaning land adjoining an important building,eg hall,manor, rectory etc.


Comment by Roy on 15th November 2009 at 13:06
Jazz.Thats why Galloways have 20 or more shops in and around the Wigan area.A Wiganer knows a good pie lad!! Sounds to me like you come from Haslingden[the home of Hollands bakery]


Comment by jazz on 15th November 2009 at 19:47
wigan actually.where is Haslington?


Comment by Roy on 15th November 2009 at 21:36
Only joking Jazz,it's in east Lancs.


Comment by A BOLTON on 15th November 2009 at 23:29
POOLES PIES ARE ON TELE NOW....BUT I STILL ENJOY GALLOWAYS...HOLLANDS PIES ARE NOT AS GOOD AS THEY USED TO BE..


Comment by jazz on 16th November 2009 at 05:56
When i go to the chip shop i can get a hollands pie with my chips, but if i go to galloways i can only grt pie. not daft?


Comment by Ellen on 17th November 2009 at 00:51
Roy, Thanks for the help;I should have made the connection, as a formerly bilingual person; I suppose I am really getting old if not yet senile!


Comment by vicky on 21st November 2009 at 11:45
anyone remember Laces pie shop in standishgate? best pies i ever tasted..closely followed by heatons..in my opinion no pies in wigan these days comes close.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 17th March 2011 at 22:14
The best M&P pies came from VOSES opposite Mark williams in standishgate in the 50`s Mmmmmm I can still taste them !!


Comment by Jerry M on 24th September 2016 at 19:11
Voses was a top pie shop especially the cow heel pies , but in the 60s the best pies in town were from Watkins in Mesnes st, Greens butchers out of old market supplied them with top quality meat .
