On what planet do these idiots live where a Cornish pasty is not a substantial meal.  It is THE substantial meal.  It can only be made into a more substantial meal by having an apple pasty stuffed with clotted cream for dessert.

If the Liverpool boozers start offering plates of Scouse along with their pints, then the fuss about Cornish pasties will be nothing as compared to what would kick-off if their eponymous dish was denigrated in a similar way.

In reply to tjdodd:

I doubt that Liverpool pubs will be serving anything like a proper Cornish pasty.

The ridiculous thing is trying to use food as an excuse to allow pubs to stay open; just do it properly and close the damned pubs.

I can see their point, that thing in the picture is classed as a cocktail pasty in our house

Or have a Bedfordshire clanger instead, which is sort of the same thing but has both sweet and savoury in one (at opposite ends)!

But then also close restaurants, Costabucks etc.

I bet at least one will.  Plate of the landlord's Mum's Scouse and a slice of cheap white bread costs next to nothing, and you just make it last

Much clearer, thank you. And I like pickles and beetroot.

When I was a student there used to be a pizza place close by that stayed open for a couple of hours later than the pubs (was closing time 10 or 10.30 mid week in the 70s?). One pizza between up to maybe 10 & we could carry on drinking for another hour or two

Yup.

And  eight thrice-cooked gastro-chips in a tiny imitation bucket isn't a portion of chips either!

In reply to tjdodd:

It used to be law here that you could only drink on a Sunday with a meal. Plates of sandwiches were very popular in certain pubs, as was drinking in private members clubs (British Legion etc.) who weren't covered by the law.
