They are ok, nothing to write home about, pastry too dry and tasteless.

Seems strange that they are criticising a British import rather than something Spanish. 🤔

I used to buy from Reeves at San Luis, but they ruined their pies by starting to use thick and stodgy pastry.

I now buy mine from Bells Butchers at La Marina. Because I'm so busy at the moment, I order online and collect at a pick-up point. In fact, I did that this morning, and met Sean Bell before he went to do a load of deliveries down your way.

All their pies are good, as is their meat.

To see when and where they deliver, look at:
