By the look of the lad in the stall - they're not selling too many.

Nice street scene photo in front of the 50 Shilling Tailors. How could you tell the difference of all thse flavours from wild boar to angus??? Then it would get smothered in ketchup or some other stuff and that would really block the taste buds.

FISH CHIPS PEAS STILL IN

Peter, kangaroo is meant to be rare if it was tough it had been cooked to long. I can be very nice if cooked right but it's not for everyone

Wigan pie and peas, beat this lot anyday.

Comment by: Kenee on 12th August 2012 at 17:05

They might sell a few more if they cheered up a bit. I got a wild boar burger last year, it was OK but the bloke that served me was a right miserable git.

Ref' rolo 69. Burtons did have the logo of "50 shilling tailors".
Check out Wikipedia. They bought out Colliers in 1985.
