Great pies at a good price right in the heart of temple bar!! Lovely, friendly service in a cute little eatery. The choice of pies is great, covering most of the usual suspects, but with some extra magic, with zingy ingredients and personal touches. I had to go for beef and Guinness, and it came with a generous portion of... More

The pies in this place are just subpar, especially compared with the (now vanished) Pieminister, which really used to make my day. The ingredients aren't of the highest quality, and the pies can be a bit dry and not the most flavoursome. The mashed spuds weren't very tasty and were a bit on the lumpy side for my taste. Still...

I stopped in to eat a little early dinner. Amazing meat pies and a great little collection of craft Irish beers. Very friendly owner and just a nice casual place in the middle of Temple Bar area. Had the Beef and Guinness pie...excellent! And of course with mash and mushy peas and gravy....all homemade. All of that, plus a beer... More

Stopped in here after a busy day of touring Dublin. I got the Pie of the Day which was Roast Chicken and Sausage Stuffing, and my brother got the Chicken, Leek and Cheddar pie. Both were absolutely amazing, especially the Chicken Leek and Cheddar. The pies were served with gravy and mash, which were also lovely. The prices were astounding... More

We stopped in here for a pie and it was quite nice. The service was fantastic and it is a busy little place. I would recommend this place if you need a pastry fix or a snack throughout the day.

While strolling around Temple Bar I ended up in this small lovely restaurant that serves fresh homemade pies. I took the one filled with Guinness stew and it was delicious!!! If you're looking for both a quick lunch and traditional food, this is the perfect place. Prices ok and staff very nice.

Just the place for a refuelling stop when in Temple Bar. We chose pie of the day which happened to be chilli beef and chorizo, with mash and gravy. Great pies,piquant and well filled, served quickly by a charming staff member, and eaten in the comfort of the no nonsense dining area, whilst the crowds milled around outside. Pie of... More

The €10.50 deal with a pie, side & beer is good value. Otherwise it's €6 for a pie. Tasty and good friendly service. Lots of options to choose from
