The main recipe of Lobby consists of diced potatoes and corned beef. Onions and other various ingredients have also been known to be added. 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 Miners Strike rather than for any particular culinary reasons
