Lobby (food)

Lobby or lobbies is a traditional beef and potato stew or broth from Stoke-on-Trent.


The main recipe of lobby consists of diced potatoes and corned beef, onions, stock such as an Oxo cube and other various ingredients have also been known to be added.

Staffordshire has many traditional dishes - including 'Lobby' which was eaten by poorly paid potters who could not afford fresh food every day.

In Leigh, Lancashire the dish earned the nickname "lobby gobblers" for inhabitants of the town, in contrast to the "pie eaters" of neighbouring Wigan, although that particular nickname was originally coined in response to the miner's strike rather than for any particular culinary reasons

Similar dishes to lobby can be found in Liverpool (scouse) and North Staffordshire (also called lobby).[1]
