Does anyone know of anywhere you can get Pukka pies? Like the chipshops have? Nothing I've found comes close.

I've not seen them anywhere except in chipshops either.

Try info@pukkapies.co.uk, ask them if they sell them in Tesco and places like that.

I used to adore steak and kidney Pukka Pies but as I have grown older my pallette and eating habits have changed and now I find the pastry to taste like deep fat fried ash. And I hate kidney, which doesn't help. It disturbs me to remember how many passed through my youthful digestive system.

Oh man, you guys really want Pieminister pies. At first I thought they were only a Bristol thing but I've seen them just outside London so I guess they're all over.

The first time I tried Pukka pies was in Kavos, Greece. We were served them in our apartments by a Greek woman with thick black hair on her hands, so after one drunken, silly night, her name became whatever silly words can be slotted into the word 'orangutan'. Such as orang-mange-atangutan etc.

The next time I saw them was in West Wales where a shop had a sign advertising they sold them.

They were fucking gogeous, mind.

Pukka Pies are rank compared to the beauty of a Hollands. I was nearly in tears when I moved dahn' saaf' and they only sold pukka pies (and no gravy but that's another matter). I eventually found them in Morrisons and all was happ.

The shop is in Stokes Croft, a few doors up the Gloucester Road from the Eclipse/Full Moon pubs. Opposite that nightclub with the big silver front. Let me know if that isn't enough direction!

I went there this morning on my way home. I wasn't hungry at the time so I bought one from the fridge that has to be cooked in the Oven, it's a Minty lamb one.

It's in the oven now. Scores later....

It was beautiful, the thing that suprised me the most was the colour. Rather than the filling just being one watery shade of brown, all the ingredients, (peas, lamb, carrots etc) had retained their own rich colour. I was slightly concerned that it was going to be too dry, so I put a dollop of ketchup on the side of the plate.... alas, the ketchup remained untouched as it was perfect, not too dry and not too soggy as to ruin the crunch of the pastry. and my God was the pastry good.

I love costco, I used to get given 2 kilogram tubs of jelly belly jelly beans for my birthday. They were a tenner, but god knows how much they would be loose.

Costco also does nice chicken bakes and pizza in the café bit, cheap too. In fact everything is cheap, tellies, pies, wine.

It's like a little family holiday every time we go.
