Holland Pies

Holland Pies delivering at the DW, what happened to Pooles Pies?

Comment by Ken R on 20th November 2013 at 00:20
Sharpy's. Is that chippie that is as big as the football field? LOL.
Hollands pies are magic.


Comment by Derek Platt on 20th November 2013 at 01:56
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.

DW the mans a traitor could have been worse Pimblets pies


Comment by Alan H on 20th November 2013 at 10:00
Whelan sold Pooles Pies to Hollands last year.


Comment by A.W. on 20th November 2013 at 10:21
the old Poole's cafe/shop on wallgate is in a pitiful condition.


Comment by Rubyshoes. on 20th November 2013 at 13:13
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?


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 20th November 2013 at 15:59
Voses pies from the UCP on stsndishgate were the best ever!!!
mmmmmmm


Comment by Mick on 20th November 2013 at 16:32
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.


Comment by christine on 20th November 2013 at 18:32
used to sell pooles pies in asda they dont now .


Comment by Garry on 20th November 2013 at 19:27
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.


Comment by Clogger on 20th November 2013 at 20:18
Rollin' pin bakery, Newton for PROPER pies!


Comment by Jane on 20th November 2013 at 22:28
Where do they make Poole's pies? They sell them in Morrison's where I live.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 20th November 2013 at 22:45
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!

Comment by Burtspieeater on 22nd November 2013 at 08:52
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
