Meal #12: Dinner

Lamb hotpot, The Rose and the Crown, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK

I actually ordered a steak and ale pie, which looked amazing in the pictures, but they were out of them.  So I settled for this “hotpot” instead.  It was pretty good in the end.  It was made up of tender lamb and potatoes with onions and mushrooms, all baked in a little ramekin.  I actually ordered mushy peas, but they gave me whole, so I mushed them myself and put them in my hotpot.  I’m finding out very quickly that which I always suspected: English food is good if you know what to order —they are expert “pie” makers here.
