As the saying goes ‘the proof of the pudding (or pie in this case) is in the eating’ – and with the new pork pies at The Spitalfields this is definitely the case. Most certainly the best pork pie you will ever taste, Brays Cottage pork pies have beautiful pastry, amazing quality outdoor reared pork, a little cured bacon and hand mixed secret blend herbs and spices inside. They are made in Norfolk in a converted flint barn looking over the sea ( how romantic). And The Water Poet on Folgate Street just happens to be one of the handful of places in London that sell them.
Try for yourself direct from the bar every day, together with The Water Poet’s very own piccalilli. The perfect match to a pint of craft ale from one of their brewers – Adnams, Meantime, Truman’s, Dark Star, London Fields, Camden and Sharp’s – it is a brilliant combination for that lazy afternoon.
