My dad used to make Cornish pasties and I was expecting something like his: full of delicious vegetables, chopped tasty meat, great flavour. Philps had been recommended by our tour guide so we were full of anticipation. From memory we chose the standard steak pasties, but regardless all three of us were bitterly disappointed I'm sorry to say: the filling was very, very salty which overcame any flavour the vegetables and meat may have had, though I doubt it was pleasant. The one positive was the pastry which was light and tasted fine. Two of us could only eat half a pasty, my husband ate all of his because he was hungry but says he wouldn't bother with another one. It was a pleasure to get back to New Zealand and a good old steak and cheese pie - fans of Cornish pasties need to try them if they want a tasty feast, don't bother with Philps pasties. It takes alot for me to give a negative review but please Philps, lift your game (and a bit more enthusiasm from the staff wouldn't go amiss either).
