While visiting the Christmas market we came across this quaint pie shop it was full to the brim but the smell of the food made us sit and wait for a table and it was well worth the wait.The pies are made fresh as you order mine was full of succulent chunks of steak in a rich thick gravy topped...

Popped in early and managed to get a table for dinner. Three courses for £15.95; seemed a very good deal as long as the food was good. So how did it turn out? A good range of choices for the starter; the pork & cranberry bonbons were excellent! The 'pie of the day' was genuinely the best pie I have... More

The title says it all really. The depth of flavour in this luscious filed-to-the-brim pie is amazing. We popped in for a quick and late lunch on a busy day. The ancient building occupies a very small footprint and the restaurant therefore serves on several levels. Buggies and wheelchairs might be a challenge but, without these, it was a quirky... More

We eat there maybe once a month or so. The food is always really good. Although it's the 'Pie' Shop, I always go for the fillet steak. It's very tender, very tasty. Last evening (2nd Dec.'16) my wife went for Beef Wellington. It was a little disappointing, as some of the steak was a bit ropy. Very unusual for the... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely hearty meal sampling the famous Browns pie. Just what was needed after a long walk up Steep Hill in cold weather. Lovely friendly staff thank you
