Celebrate National Pie Week at The Shankly Hotel

There aren’t many sports that have their own savoury staple. Perhaps it’s no surprise that the oldest, most celebrated sport in the country has adopted one of the world’s oldest snacks as its emblematic meal: the humble pie epitomises a world immersed by oversea owners and social media.

So, with National Pie Week on the horizon, we’ve decided to take a closer look at why, when you’re at the match, you always choose that meat and potato treat.

A Match Made in Pastry Heaven

A post shared by Fuud ltd (@fuudltd) on

The humble pie has popped up on numerous occasions at some of the most important matches. From 20 stone men to the Sunderland forward who, when a pie was thrown at him from the stands picked it up and devoured it, the pie is a Saturday staple.

So eminent is the connection that in 2008 a man vowed to tour the UK in search of the best savoury snack. He ate a mammoth 92 pies and even penned a book about his experiences named, wait for it, “92 Pies.”

It seems somewhat proper to rate the pies and so, that’s where the team at Pierate come to the fore. Because of them, we now know that Morecambe is the home of the nation’s most loved pie.

Everton’s attempt at a pie, however, was described as: “Goodison, but not good enough.”

But, to our horror and distaste, Liverpool are nowhere to be seen. The cheek of it.

A post shared by Homebaked (@homebakedliverpool) on

Founded in 2010, Homebaked is a co-operative bakery situated in the shadow of Liverpool’s stadium. Some even say that the current eatery that provides supporters with their pre-match pie was inspired by the kindness of Shankly himself.

This delicious bakery has provided the community and countless supporters from across the world with pies and snacks for almost a century, and, is the ideal place to celebrate National Pie Week.

Since 2010, the cues at Homebaked have snaked out the door and around the street as it has become traditional to purchase a pie to either keep your hands warm or, more importantly, support the local community.

Many believe that Homebaked was inspired by Liverpool’s iconic leader and that could be why their trademark pie is aptly named: “The Shankly Pie” made with steak, bacon, mushroom and onion.

Today, Homebaked use their massive matchday profits to help educate and train their bakers. They also hold classes and communal courses and any surplus food is donated to food banks and homeless shelters.

So, why not pop in and support them this National Pie Week.

National Pie Week 2019

national pie week

So, to celebrate National Pie Week, The Bastion Bar and Restaurant at The Shankly Hotelwhich has recently been nominated for Hotel of the Year at the LEP Liverpool Tourism Awards – has created a delicious pie to mark the event.

From chicken and onion to Shankly’s favourite steak and kidney, The Bastion Bar and Restaurant is the place to be this March.

Our pies are made entirely from scratch and baked fresh each day to ensure maximum flavour and maximum enjoyment.

Indeed, why not make the most of National Pie Week and book a stay at the hotel. The Shankly is ideal for romantic stays or weekends away – and what could be more romantic than a pie dinner for two.

Our friendly and helpful team can’t wait to hear from you. Contact us on 0151 236 0166 or email reservations@shanklyhotel.com

Looking Forward to Liverpool Oktoberfest 2017

Strap on your Lederhosen, grab your steins and get ready for an Oom-pah-ing good time at Liverpool Oktoberfest 2017. Taking over Pier Head this giant German festival has become a favourite among Liverpool residents and visitors alike and will be hosted this weekend from 21st – 24th September.

Let’s take a look at what you can expect from Liverpool Oktoberfest 2017.

Cheap German Beer

Liverpool Oktoberfest

Fans of a perfectly brewed golden ale will understand the joy of picking up a chilled glass of German beer. Especially when it comes in huge stein glasses that can hold two pints of the stuff.

This year your pennies will stretch further too as organisers are selling these giant bevvies for just £8.

Unlikely to run short Oktoberfest will be supplied by a tanker holding 23,000 litres of specially brewed beer brought in from a 200-year-old Bavarian brewery.

Steins for everyone.

Awesome Attire

Traditional Bavarian attire will be worn by all staff at Liverpool Oktoberfest, ladies in their dirndl and guys getting their pins out in Lederhosen.

These delightful garments have been around for centuries inspired by the traditional garb of peasants who lived and still live in the Alps.

Dirndl

Liverpool Oltoberfest

source: Bild.de

In the1870’s the dirndl became the height of fashion among ladies of the upper classes in Austria and by 1890 the popularity of the garment had spread to the rest of the country.

A properly tailored dirndl can set you back a couple of hundred euros, made from custom printed fabrics and made to measure.

The dirndls of today are still worn on formal or special occasions by Austrian and Bavarian ladies. The less traditional outfits, whilst styled similar to the dirndl are reserved for festivals or costumes in themed bars and restaurants around the world.

Lederhosen

Liverpool Oktoberfest

source: potujmo.net

Translated literally as “leather breeches” Lederhosen are derived from the working-class uniform of Bavaria.

The tough wearing material of Lederhosen was perfect for men who daily undertook physical labour in their job roles.

Instead of catapulting to the height of fashion at the end of the 17th-century Lederhosen popularity declined as it was regarded as clothing for “uncultured peasants” rather than fashionable attire for the upper classes.

The classic Lederhosen and techniques for tailoring them are now preserved as a heritage Bavarian garment and are regarded as a symbol of Bavarian pride or male virility. Many regional men still chose to wear Lederhosen to carry out taxing outdoor chores or to attend local festivals or pubs.

At Oktoberfest, both dirndl and Lederhosen will be making an appearance in traditional and more modern forms. Get into the spirit and check out the latest modern Bavarian fashion here for inspiration.

Deliciously Traditional Delicacies

Liverpool Oktoberfest

All this beer will need soaking up with some tasty food and luckily Oktoberfest will be bringing more than mass quantities of German alcohol down to Pier Head.

Immerse yourself in the Bavarian culture completely by dining on dishes such as Bratwurst, Brezel, Schnitzel and Schweinebarten. All perfect dishes to accompany a pint or tow of Bavarian beer made mainly of pork and pastry.

Better still there are fabulous offers for both beer and food available including Bavarian sausage, fries and a ½ pint of Feistber, just to get you started.

Full on Festival Atmosphere

Liverpool Oktoberfest

Through the weekend there will be a live DJ playing some traditional and popular German tunes and of course what Oktoberfest would be complete without an Oom-pah band.

Prepare yourself by brushing up on your German music knowledge with a few favourite tracks;

  • Anton aus Tyrol
  • Cowboy und Indianer (Kom hol das Lasso raus)
  • Fliegerlied
  • Ein Prosit der Gemuetlichkeit
  • Zikke Zakke, Zikke Zakke hey hey hey

You and your friends are guaranteed an experience of German heritage and culture as well as a full stomach and a taste for finely brewed German beer at this year’s Liverpool Oktoberfest.

Don’t forget to grab yourself a souvenir stein glass and head on down to Pier Head this weekend.

The Perfect Oktoberfest AccommodationShankly Hotel Group accommodation

Moments away from Oktoberfest fun The Shankly Hotel is the ideal place to rest your tired feet after a day dancing to Oom-pah tunes.

The Shankly Hotel’s group accommodation can sleep up to four guests in pure luxury with huge comfy beds, double whirlpool baths and stylish décor.

What’s more, the Bastion Bar and Restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere for winding down after Oktoberfest fun and will serve you a hearty breakfast the following day to help you recover.
