7 ways with Pies! The Publican’s Morning Advertiser

With British Pie Week coming up on the 2-9 March Sheila McWattie looks how operators can make the most of this pub classic and features Friends of Ham in the festive section…

Annual festive guided walks for 15 participants, led by expert guide Ken Goor and starting from Friends of Ham in Leeds, with mince pies and mulled cider included in the £7 ticket price, are a big attraction at the recently refurbished pub, which specialises in charcuterie. Owner Anthony Kitching says: “Top-quality mince pieces are always welcome at Christmas, and we find that making our own and serving them at an innovative festive event draws attention in a relaxed way to the care we take with all our food. We focus mainly on ham and cheese, but it is important to include sweet treats. Many walkers also sample our menu and drinks here before or after their outings, and participating in enjoyable events encourage them to return”
