Very large and varied choice of pies. And wow,the pies we had were good. Very,very good! To coin a phrase 'get there early to avoid disappointment' as no pre bookings allowed. It's worth going out of your way to visit this place!

I've visited here a few times now. Great options for veggies and non veggies. No vegan options. Love that there's a choice of shortcrust or puff pastry and the portion sizes are hearty! Polite and efficient service every time. I also recommend the cheesecake dessert.

Service was slow, but the food was well worth the wait! I got the sausage, bacon, and leek pie. My other family members all ordered different meals, and not one was disappointed.
