Pie & Vinyl: It's a pie shop.. it's a record shop.. It's a coffee shop.... It's all !

After a bit of googling, few friends and I decided to visit Pie and Vinyl, as it was close to our class. altho I was very sceptical about this place online, I was shocked upon my arrival. Starting with the place, its a cosy record shop integrated in a victorian style pie shop. 

Cool different decor for a pie shop, just like your grandmother's living room !
Cool hip staff greet you to your wooden tables. They are very helpful and invite you to take a look at their old and new records, and buy one.. about the food. Meal deal for £6.95 comes with a pie of your choice, gravy, creamy mash, and mushy peas. I went for MOO and Blue which was british steak and Stilton cheese.

Good size not too big like other pie shops, and an over average test, although I have to try other pies as well.
Overall the pie tasted great although stilton was a bit over powering. The Mushy peas and creamy mash were bet bland, however gravy did taste home made and good. overall I would rate the pie 7/10. there were other pies to try for example double cheeseburger pie ! this is pretty much my order next time I go there.

Cool pots, and great non alcoholic drinks menu for amazing price

The drinks menu was a bit interesting. you could have your drinks cold /hot /fizzy for I believe £1.75 in a pretty looking shape pots!. I recommend the Elderflower and apple, cold and fizzy. Overall the place has great atmosphere and is highly recommended for a casual dining with friends.

After being away from blogging, decided to come back full strength and write about my culinary and travel experiences by being as honest as possible. I've lived in different countries for long time and having a multicultural background, I believe my taste buds will not fail me ! I hope. Please stay tuned and delight me with your comments!
