Steak and Doom Bar Pie
Can't beat a homemade, Succulent Steak and Doom bar pie it's absolutely amazing. In particular, melt in the mouth beef, chunky vegetables and of course the subtlely sweet, yet bitter taste from Doom Bar Ale, Superb!!
One of my favourite classic British Pub dishes, popular amongst many Autumn menus. I have never found a pub making it with my favourite Ale, Doom Bar.
Brings the pub grub feel to your own doorstep. Of course, if you have a different favourite Ale just switch it for any ale you prefer!
