There is some good news though:
Pies back on The Horse Shoe menu.Pro-pie advocate David Hunter has placed this comment on my previous post:
The Horse Shoe bar Pies will return to The Horse Shoe bar on Monday. A campaign to restore pies to the menu at a traditional Glasgow pub has proved successful.
Many thanks for all the comments in this post. I'm happy to say that M&B reversed their decision, which incidentally had been made by the local area manager and not by M&B senior management, and have returned the pies to there rightful place - in the pie warmer of The Horse Shoe Bar. One comment made "it takes months to find a customer, seconds to lose one" proved very true, as guys like myself and many others, left for other Glasgow locals that have stayed with tradition. Mind you there's not a lot of traditional pubs left. Monday 15 January 2007 sees the pie relaunched and McGhees who supply them have donated the first 100 FREE. Thanks again for all your support.Here is the campaign's website.
