On my recent visit to Oxford, I popped into the emporium to sample one of their pies and ordered the filo pastry, stuffed with goat's cheese and mediterranean vegetables. It was delicious, the pastry was crisp and the filling tasty and cooked perfectly. My husband and son both thoroughly enjoyed their steak and ale pies and speciality bottled beer. Whilst waiting for the meal, I was amazed to learn that William Shakespeare had most probably given an early performance of Hamlet in the courtyard outside and that we were actually sitting in a mediaeval kitchen! I think the pies were excellent value, at around £10, the decor was interesting and unusual and to be sitting in such an historical setting was a real treat. PS There was a man outside handing out discount vouchers but he was charming, engaging and not in the slightest bit creepy!
