“a fine pie”
Review of Pieminister

Pieminister
Ranked #244 of 2,406 Restaurants in Birmingham
Price range: US$11 - US$20
Description: Come and try our famous pies, washed down with great music, cocktails, beers and good times. In the heart of the city, close to New Street train station, we have a range of award-winning pies made with delicious, ethical British ingredients including gluten-free, vegetarian & vegan options. And that’s not all, we also have pastry-free skillets to taste and a whole heap of great sides to enjoy, from the traditional mash, peas and gravy to tasty slaws, salad, chips, dips and our take on halloumi fries. But don’t forget to save room for dessert, our scrumptious soft serve sundaes are the perfect end to the meal – chocolate, fruity or the wild card ‘Pork Pie’ we’ve got something for everyone. Stop by for lunch, dinner, happy hour cocktails or why not book in for our Bangin’ Bottomless Brunch – the ultimate way to celebrate the weekend.

Damn. I can confirm that the pies are very good, as is the service, and the atmosphere, and the price.

Our first visit and certainly won’t be the last! Atmosphere is chilled and the service was excellent! Our server took her time to go through the menu and her recommendations which we appreciated!

Can’t recommend this place enough! Also, try their special coleslaw on the side, so good!

We’ll be back, cheers!

We had arrived for evening meal and they did very kindly accommodate us as a party of 7 people - 5 Adults and 2 children.
The children are very fussy eaters so only wanted chips - they don't like pies - so we ordered 5 pie meals and 2 portions of fries for the boys - we also ordered 3 lots of fries instead of potatoes - but you have the take the potatoes anyway - the fries are then charged as an extra. Even if you don't take the potatoes you still have to pay for the fries - no problem.
When the bill came they had charged us for 6 pie meals - yet they knew full well we had only ordered 5 meals for each Adult.
Despite the fact that fries are only charged as an extra £1.00 per person when ordering with a meal - the 2 children were charged £3.50 each for the fries that came for them. Had they been different to ours or on a plate it wold not have mattered - but they were exactly the same portion in exactly the same pot as ours.
I think this is totally unfair charging and they took advantage of the way the order was discussed.
Even so, we were still overcharged so asked them to represent the bill.
First time ever we have not tipped - but in fact they had obtained it via the overcharges made on the boys fries by £5.00

My colleague booked 6 of us here for a Christmas lunch. We work on Waterloo Street, so she popped in and made the booking. Today we arrived for our lunch to be told no reservation had been made. The waitress remembered speaking to my colleague only 3 days before but said "she had left the details with her manager to make the reservation". The manager of course was not there to confirm if this was true but this is ridiculous - can only a manager take a booking? It also does not explain why at the time of booking my colleague was told by the same waitress that they could not fit us in for 1pm but could at 1.30pm. My colleague accepted that and made the booking.
No apology, no attempt to invite us back. It's the week before Christmas - it was impossible to find somewhere nearby who could fit 6 of us as there were loads of office parties going on. Very disappointed.
