4.5/5. Really yummy, the puffed crust was tasty and the filling was lovely. Would add a little more thyme maybe as the flavour wasn't that pronounced. Make sure you properly salt and pepper the filling when its in the fry pan. Ryan and I both had seconds.

would I make it again: Yes.
Good pie - makes enough for 3 people in one square pan.
