“Best sausage roll ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Popped in on a day trip to Southwold - stopped to look at all the pies and other deli goods in the window and was tempted in to get a spot of lunch to eat on the beach. Opted for a sausage roll and have to say it was possibly the best I had ever tasted! Would definitely recommend!

“Emperors new clothes pie!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Agree with one of the other reviewers in that whilst everything looks and sounds nice the pie I had was totally underwhelming tasteless and dry. Ended up at a much less inviting looking place down the road for a good bog standard corned beef roll!

“Nice pies & quiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

If you can get past the people standing looking in the window at all the pies, it's well worth popping in here for a bite or two. We stopped by here a couple of times during our Southwold trip and sampled a few varieties of pork pie and also their quiches. We weren't disappointed! Would definitely go back for more.

“The famous pies”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I had heard through the grapevine that these pies were not to be missed. Unfortunately I found this not to be the case. I bought venison pie, goats cheese tart, and two Scotch eggs - one 'brunch', the other vegetarian. All were bland, mediocre and entirely lacking in inspiration.
