“Excellent, excellent excellent”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

What more can I say? I travel 35 miles from Preston to Bolton for these pasties, they are the best by far in England.

“Royston Vasey?”
Reviewed April 14, 2011

Like the butchers in Royston Vasey the queue tells you its special. It is. At first it's just another pasty but once eaten your brain never forgets to remind your tummy that was, in it's simplicity, the best.
I have been addicted all my life. My Brazilian family tried pies and pasties all over the UK. They too are addicted to Walshs. League of Gentleman comparisons therefore have at least some validity

“Best Pies and Pasties - Ever!”
Reviewed January 18, 2011

If you want to sample real Lancashire pies and pasties (possibly the best in England!) you'll have to join a long queue but it's well worth the wait. By the way, don't bother going in the afternoon as it is usually sold out! Their is no seating area in the shop so you'll have to take them home to enjoy them. Wish they did mail order!
