As it’s Pie Week, we have rounded up some of the best places you can go to enjoy this hearty dish.

Pieminister

This restaurant, on Division Street, is dedicated to pie so it’s the perfect place to go for a proper British pie. There are plenty of delicious fillings to choose from. There’s the classic ‘Moo’, with British beef steak and ale, a vegetarian ‘Heidi’ with goat’s cheese, sweet potato and spinach and a vegan ‘Kevin’ with mushroom, tomato and red wine with onions and thyme. The ‘Moo’ and ‘Heidi’ are also available in gluten-free options. Diners will be given scratch cards with every pie bought throughout the week and these cards will give pie fans the chance to win instant-win prizes, including a year’s supply of pie feasts.
