Sharpy's. Is that chippie that is as big as the football field? LOL.
Hollands pies are magic.

They are probably just delivering the puddings. I went for a meal there when I was in Wigan recently. And one thing is for sure Whelans can't make fish and chips. I wasn't very impressed.

I used to work at the old Pooles cafe. One way and another he ruined both the cafe and the pies. Sad to see the state the cafe is in now. Still that's progress, or is it?

Voses pies from the UCP on stsndishgate were the best ever!!!

Mr Whelan took Pooles cafe from the bottom of dreary Wallgate and reopened them in a modern premises in Market street.
Which was a far better location for pensioners and mothers with young children to enjoy the pie and chip dinners.

Pies are a matter of opinion just like the chippys. In my opinion Ashurst/Cains pies and cakes, from Belle Green Lane, in Hr Ince were the best ever...mark my word.

Rollin' pin bakery, Newton for PROPER pies!

Where do they make Poole's pies? They sell them in Morrison's where I live.

Apologies in advance for the doggerel, but I couldn't resist.
A good pie - you say
is just a taste away;
but a taste with what?
your tongue? your gut?
It's none of these for sure;
It's the taste with memory, memories that bring allure!

Clogger is almost right, but its the predecessor of the Rolling Pin, made the best ever pies throughout the 50s-80s. The one and only Burt Oliver
