As part of a group of 24 I had steak pie with all the trimmings - diverse meal choices, toast tea and cakes, friendly caring service, presentation great, all handled well, all enjoyed! - A "doggy bag" foe all the "full" people!

patty, I really don't recall. There is no shortage of places in Perth that will produce bacon rolls that could win prizes. Try Gillies, even M&S will sell them and freshly made. Sorry I couldn't give the answer you wanted.
