batter and the tartar sauce were just as good or better.
DD's friend ordered the Vegetarian Salad, which looked like a garden salad with a side of potato salad. She said that it was really good.
I ordered the Lancashire Pasty. It is a pastry filled with ground beef and some vegetables. It has a pot pie kind of flavor. It tasted good, and in the middle was some gravy. I really did like the dish and it was very filling, but not something I crave. If/when we go back, I would try something new.
After lunch, we looked around the little shop. It is loaded with all kinds of British treats and snacks. Unfortunately, they didn't have the Jaffa cakes my husband loves, or maybe that's a good thing. It's a hot item and they sell out fast every time they get it in. They had all kinds of cute gifty things. I found these measuring spoons by Ganz and loved them so much, I had to get a set. Regardless of the $20 price tag. I thought these were exclusive to England, but you know what? Amazon carries them too. Ganz ER27033 Mom Measuring Spoons - 'Mom, the Heart of Our Home' This link looks like the set I bought. They are made from zinc alloy and are suppose to be lead free from what I looked up.

The bakery had quite the selection of tarts, so we picked out a few. I got the pecan tart and everyone else got the Viennese. We all enjoyed them and they are the perfect size for a little treat. They also have their meat filled pasties you can purchase and bake up at home. They had other meat filling besides the flavor I had for lunch, like a chicken curry.
