We received a telephone call early afternoon to let us know that a cheque we had paid for a subscription had been filled in incorrectly. That was when we remembered we should have been attending an arts opening.
As I was just finishing adding some wax to furniture, we downed tools, got changed and attended said do. Not over impressed but there you go. Anyway, by this time it was getting rather late and I hadn't prepared anything for tea. We popped into a well known high street store to peruse their food hall and decided on one of their nice pies as advertised on television, plus a pudding. We managed to get both for £5.50 so not too bad a price despite the fact I could have made it cheaper, we needed something quick.
What a waste of money and so disappointing!
It was essentially a very poorly flavoured sauce with a few bits of hard chicken and no chunks or slices of leek. The flaky top pie crust was nice but the bottom was soggy. I reckon it had no more than 1 1/2 ladles of filling, if that.
For pudding we chose two pots of clotted cream rice pudding. They were better tasting but not necessarily better value for money and again, we could have made 1 - 2 pints for the price.
What never ceases to amaze us on the odd times we visit this store is how many elderly people are in the food hall pushing around trollies with hardly anything in them. Are they wealthy, how can they afford to shop in there?
To say we were disappointed is an understatement and shall not both again with their food as a 'treat'.
