A belated review of our infamous Christmas pie hunter gathering at an old favourite, the Counting House in the City of London.
The venue didn’t disappoint and we were offered a perfect long table on the balcony overlooking the pub.
There was a brief discussion over whether it was decent to buy a two person pie platter for one pie hunter. Of course it was.
(Health warning: One veteran colleague did however feel the effects after also taking down a crumble and custard with four pints of Guinness and was suffering for two days after the event).
The platter offered a range of pies, including steak and ale, steak and kidney, chicken and leek, a game pie and even a vegetarian option. It came in at about £15. Highly recommended.
A great selection of ales as always.
