Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 27th October, 2021)
Baldy's Pies makes me think of a barber's shop making pies....it's a bit Sweeney Todd for me! I'll stick with Galloway's!
Ive not been very well mick so I not been looking at these photos.
Looking at those pie making premises I think you could be right Irene. Even though they sell their products to Bents where you can pay £3 plus just for a scone!
Baldy's Pies are the best pies in Wigan!
Ive heard Baldy is not actually bald.
What a horrible looking place. I wonder what their hygiene ratings are.
Yes, TerryW, What a dreadful looking factory.
Anyone know where you can buy them? I would give them a try.
Their hygiene rating is 5 stars . Very good . I've never tried the pies but their website is full of rave reviews and the products look delicious . I'll definitely try one in the Crown at Bradley .
I hope their pies look better than their premises do. I think I will give them a miss.
They are sold at The Plough and Harrow Shevvy they must be good or they wouldn't have passed the Parish Council also Windy Harbour Farm Shop - windy being the operative word....
Though I haven't had any of them myself so can't personally comment on them, I have heard and read some very good reviews about them.
Never judge a book by its cover. Uncle joes mints at Wigan looks grotty from the outside but is very clean inside. I have a chip pan which is black .outside with use but inside you can see your face in the shiny metal
Agreed the exterior leaves a lot to be desired of a food establishment, but Baldy's do have a 5 Star Hygiene Rating, whilst a food establishment some folks consider to be a posh restaurant only has a 1 Star Hygiene Rating.
So as the saying goes - You can't judge a book by its cover.
They sell them in a trailer van at the top of Gerard Street Ashton.
I do believe they are expensive.
Looks like a tattoo shop.
A chip pan black on the outside and a black wok is the sign of a good cook.
Cyril,I presume you mean Alberts.
Joan was it Covid
PeterP, great minds think alike concerning book covers.
Pw, no names mentioned, it might be Sweaty Betty's or Fat Burt's. ;¬)
Lets hope the food establishments that are rated as 1 Star and have been given the chance to improve their hygiene standards, actually do get down to some serious scrubbing etc., and so keep their customers safe from serious illness or even death.
With food places closed when it was the lockdown you would have imagined it to have been the perfect opportunity for some general deep cleaning and sprucing up to have been done.
Yes Cyril,if Albert's is anything to go by sounds like 'fur coat and no knickers' !
Looks like another part of the Peter Blonds sewing factory on Clayton Street. It's a hell of a coat though Kim :)
Kim, I've not heard that saying for some time. :¬)
We wanted our shop to look a little different to the rest… Our pies are very different. We hold a 5* hygiene rating & our kitchen is open if you want to come in & check it out ???? After starting this company with my business partner Chris we have achieved two national pie awards in 11 months, one being the best chicken pie in the country. If you haven’t been, you must try us out ???? Two Wigan lads trying to make Wigan proud ????
