“Not a restaurant, but a great pasty!”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

Bolton has choice when it comes to pasties, yet we all have fond memories of YOPS which keeps us coming back - please open on a Saturday again!?!

Buy a traditional pasty and 6 more to take home for the freezer.

“Well worth a visit - the pastie barm is a "must"”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

The shop is full of character, about as far removed from a high street bakery chain's premises as you can get. The shop is tiny which often means queuing outside for a little while during busy periods.

The speciality of the house is one of their famous pasties popped inside a bread roll - known locally as a barm cake. Awesome. If you only ever try one pastie barm in your lifetime, make sure it's from here.

“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.
