Love the pies and the variety. It comes with wonderful sides. We had to make 3 attempts before we finally got in to eat at this wonderful place.

This restaurant is in a good location in Oxford near the town centre. The staff were really friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent and it tasted delicious. I would recommend this place to friends and family.

Not bad, but neither so good. I was expecting some different, but just tastes like normal british food. I would recommend it if you are at the covered market, but not as a "must" in Oxford.

I had the chicken of Aragon pie which was a fairly average-tasting pie - nothing extraordinary. However, the atmosphere and lighting was lovely, as was the service.

Located in Oxford's famous Covered Market, just off the High Street, Pieminister Oxford is a cosy little pie and mash cafe situated between artisan producers and local craftsmen. Inside the cafe you will get a lovely warm vibe with busy passing customers and of course you will be served the perfectly British combination of award winning pie & mash.
