“Best pie shop, great experience -a must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

We followed the recommendations of our hosts and the rave reviews on TripAdvisor to get a pie at the BURLEiGH. We ended up having three pies and a sausage roll between two - they were that good. The owners, Jane and Rod, were extremely warm, hospitable and generous - far more than we expected from a humble pie shop!

The pies were very modestly priced and we ended up purchasing some cheeses and Wine Barrel Smoked Mushrooms to take away for a picnic - delicious.

If there is one place you must stop at for lunch, even if only passing through Blenheim, it is the BURLEiGH. If you're staying for longer, I suggest you go twice!

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Like a true British deli, fresh produce and overseas influences. More of a takeaway than a cafe but awesome owners let us bore them with our poor banter! Couldn't rate it high enough, beef roll was a treat!

“THE pork belly pie... WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We didn't find this gem until the day we were leaving!
Packing for day in the car, we stopped at the Burleigh after breakfast to pick up lunch for the day (a roll and a pork belly pie). It was a Saturday morning and the place was buzzing with customers getting their coffees and meals.
When the staff found out we were going to have the pie cold, they kindly advised that we should 'at least' have a bite of the pie whilst it was fresh. The 'bite' turned into the whole pie disappearing! The unassuming casing contained deliciousness in every bite, with substantial amounts of pork in every mouthful.
Thankyou for your advice and friendly service :)

“Pork Pie and Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

If there is ever a reason to upset your wife's plans for your diet or your doctor, it is worth saving it for one of these Pork Belly Pies, just too good. Best coffee and convenient on the edge of town. - Local coffee addict and winemaker
