May be a bit random, but has anyone ever seen corned beef pasties for sale outside of South Wales (Swansea/Neath area). I've never seen them outside of my old stamping ground, and it means whenever I go back to see the parental units, I have to eat a million of the buggers. They do go down very well when it's raining at White Springs methinks.

Gregg's never sold them in the North West. Or the North East. Or for that matter in the London area. I've never investigated Brum; mainly because it smells, is ugly, and the accent makes baby jebus cry. However, now being in Leicester, I have easy access to the best pork pies.

Gregg's sell them in Manchester, but you'll never better their sausage and baked bean pasties!

How anyone can eat the greasy slop that Greggs passes for pastry is beyond my comprehension. The tiny lumps of tumerous "meat" also defy belief.

You never been to Newcastle?
More Greggs in that city per square mile than anywhere else in the country - the pastie is the staple diet of the Geordie.

How else do you think the fans at St James maintain the svelte figures that are often shown on MOTD.[:p][:p]

Not that Greggs don't sell pasties, they clearly (claim to) do. But they do not sell corned beef pasties in Manchester (admittedly, I was in S Manc, not N Manc, which was, like N Wales, smelly and funny-sounding). Lived there from 2003 until a few months ago, and, being a bit of a chunky-monkey, got lots of baked goods. Never ever ever saw a corned beef pasty. Saw many variations of the 'meat' pasty, but nothing approaching the glory that is the corned beef pasty. And here's the proof: http://www.greggs.co.uk/menu/savouries. Can anyone see a corned beef pasty? Nope. So yah, boo and sucks to you all!

(As for the North East, I'm happy to retract, on the grounds I spent most of my time in Durham at the Uni, and thus subsisted on oysters and foi gras).

Had one at the metro centre yesterday

No chance peters are no where near as nice, you lose half of it as the pastries that flakey. I've had them in Newcastle and Durham but when i'm at uni in sheffield they dont sell them
