"By the early 1900s the pub had become something of a Glasgow institution and was as popular with prosperous merchants as with humble clerks"

 

On Friday 8th August, Mitchells & Butlers offered their Horseshoe regulars the option to TRY A PIE

Read the full saga and updates here...

Of the three samples tried out, none of them really could be said were of real tasty scotch pie quality... and the last-minute contributed pies from a local baker, were not made available.

Even some of our overseas friends, from Australia and from USA, were unimpressed.

So what is The Horseshoe going to do to reintroduce an acceptable pie ?

Well they could try going back in time - to a few weeks ago when there was a daily fresh pie delivered from a local Glasgow supplier and which everyone was very happy with.

So don't believe the advertising board outside The Horseshoe which advertises "The Famous Horseshoe Pie" -

It's NOT the famous one you're being served .. it's a replica !!

On the food front, Mitchells & Butlers official response regarding the change to the 'home-made' items being removed from the popular 3 course lunch is that they had to make the changes to comply with the Food Information for Consumers European Union Regulation 1169/2011. This looks to us like a food labelling regulation and nothing to do with the preparation of the home-made items which for as long as I've been going to The Horseshoe (48 years) hasn't done me any harm !!

If you are like me and haven't a clue what it is - you can read all about it here... best of luck.

ps.. As at 26th September, the soup is still Tomato and Basil.. Seems that Mitchells & Butlers can't find a Scotch Broth - IN SCOTLAND ?

Never thought the old joke would come true of a guy in The Horseshoe Bar who, after a hard day at work, asked the barmaid for a pie, a pint and a kind word. She gave him his pint and the kind word - "don't eat the pies".

Sounds even truer today.....

"Nothing beats a lunchtime pie and a pint"

It's been part of the city's social culture for so long that it transcends style, class, taste and sometimes even species !

"a dinner dripping with pure 'Glesga' culture"

The pie - a traditional lunchtime snack / meal with thousands of patrons of The Horseshoe Bar for some considerable number of years. It's the natural choice with a pint
