Storries...cheap and cheerful. I guess that I could have a go at their mince pies. Mare soya in them than meat. Rolls and Bran scones and Vanilla slices world class.

Baynes are not the Bains of Stenhouse Cross, who have a big reputation. Pies made in butchers shops is a dying art. The other examples of almost Butcher's pies was the tradition of cheek by jowel collaboration. When I was lad, aye with Hovis/Granville bike, working after school and weekends for butchers Bonthrons, delivering parcels of mince, steak etc all over Musselburgh. Each Thursday a big aluminium tray full of mince steak and steak chunks were transported across the High Street to Cossars bakery were a magical transformation took place.

Masons pies were legendary in the 60's and 70's. New owners in the 80's. Pies quality not the same however mythology about today's fair hinges on a glorious past.

Gregg, well what can one say, at least they were amongst the first to do Vegan pastries and even Storries at al see a potential money maker and do the same.
I remember seeing a delivery to Greggs in Restalrig Road early doors. Got chatting to the drivert and it transpired there were boxes with frozen round bases, circular outer shells and individual patties of whatever. I believe their products can be bought frozen in various outlets.

If going by popular feedback is anything to go by, the pies presented to punters, free, by St.Patricks Branch at St. Patrick's Night swaries, the successful 140th Birthday of the Hibernians and the 25th Anniversary of the Skol Cup victory organised by us, the pies made in shop by splendid Hibee daft butcher Graham Cherrie, Albert Street are the business.

If it comes to my personal pie memories it is none of the above. In the mid sixties my ma and da would go out for the night and leave me enough dough for an can of juice, a steak pie supper and two pickles from Brandeschis moboie Fish and Chip van, smoke billowing oot the chimney. The quality of the steak pie was probably gash however that and watching whatever I wanted on the telly while the were oot was heaven.

Bains at Stenhouse are the best in Edinburgh.
Lawson's in Uphall steak & gravy pies and Boghall butcher's mince pies are top notch for us West Lothian based pie munchers.

Boghall butcher?
while working through there we sampled their pies, before it went on fire
They have awards all over the walls for their pies. They were very good. Esp the chicken pies. But they have awards fir best scotch/mince pie in the world and others in walls.

They did, mind the big fanfare, but they were not very good!

Graham Cherrie's pies and sausage rolls are the biz. Same goes for the ones you get from the Sicilian bakers. Those 2 wee shops are gems and only a few yards apart. Albert Kidd Street is spoilt for choice.

I’ve voted for Boghall, but recently changed allegiance to Lawsons in the last couple of years. Going there today to purchase a steak pie for the weekend.

Eloquently , and passionately put. A pie connoisseur I suspect. 😁


Stephens the bakers for me. Pies, like most food which are not good for you, require a generous topping of brown sauce, to really hit the spot.
I have stuck a pie on a roll a few times, but really just when time was tight and I'm trying to cram a lot in . Over rated, but okay.

I see a lot o' scotch pies are made wi' beef now instead of mutton.
I do miss Stories bran scones.
You never could beat Masons pies back in the day but no' had one for a few years now
 
Just to tie this pie debate off. For Porty Hibees. The late Matt McGinn was perhaps referring to St Andrews Fish and Chip shop in the High Street. Who knows?. The only song in the world that I can think of that mentions a pie supper.

Not strictly a pie, but whoever does the bridies at east end park is at the top of their game.flaky pastry, tender juicy meat and not too much gravy. Absolute game changer.
