Anyone know of any major outlet that either sells fresh or frozen, used to get them from Asda's but they seem to have disappeared lately

My local Budgens garage sell them, so I assume they all must. Haven't seen them anywhere else.

We were in Lossiemouth a few weeks back - bought a Chicken Curry Pie from Ashers - it was delicious !!

Have you ever thought of making your own , mate ?

It really isn't that difficult .

Ashers used to be alright a few years back, but standards have dramatically dropped.

Well the Chicken Curry Pie I had from the little Asher's in Lossie was very nice -

I've only had the one so have nothing to compare it to .

Think I'll have a go at making my own soon , all this talk of Balti Pies is giving me a taste for one - made 11 mince pies last night , there were 3 left this morning !

Often make them but they rarely survive the evening so like to have a quick fix in the freezer

Those delicious ones they used to serve at ***** Hart Lane were made by Parr Foods in Glasgow I believe, maybe contact them and see who they supply down south.

I actually think the ones at Olympic stadium are possibly the best thing about West Ham United at the moment. Actually possibly the last 20 years

Good to see you back Nick. You still got the shop in Ongar Road?
