Without our traditional pints we probably wouldn’t have survived, as back in the day Londoner’s were drinking it in place of water, and don’t let’s get started on the joys of a pie. When an oyster was as cheap as a chip, the Victorians were stuffing them under crusts, with a drop of stout to improve the gravy. Yes, we understand a pie. The crust is just a vehicle for holding in deliciousness.
