My husband and I stopped here for lunch while driving from Hobart to Launceston. Given that they use the flour from the local mill we were keen to try something baked so decided to have their beef pie. At $7.60 per pie the price was at the top limit of what I would consider reasonable for a gourment pie but they the pastry looked obviously handcrafted so we figured it would be worthwhile. We paid $15.40 for the 'dine in' option which meant we were served the pie with a salad and relish. You can imagine our disappointment when having paid over $30 for 2 'beef pie' meals we cut open our pies to find grey mince with a few chunks of carrot. They lacked any seasoning - no onion, salt or pepper appeared to have been added during the cooking process. Even with the addition of the whole serve of relish plus more salt and pepper the filling of this pie it was still bland. We have had better tasting Mrs Mac's pies from servos for only a few dollars. The only reason I haven't rated it terrible was because the salad was quite flavoursome and the pastry was nicely cooked, but that still doesn't make up for the complete lack of taste for something sold as a gourmet item. Spare your tastebuds and wallet - dine elsewhere or avoid the pies!
