Great pies especially the venison. Not cheap for a pie due to quality and popularity. Pie warmers not big enough to cope with demand so had the odd one that was lukewarm but not enough to stop me going back for more.

My family and I stopped here on our trip from Milford Sound to Queenstown. The pies from this shop were delicious, obviously made on site, with lovely thick pastry, but it was the generous chunks of venison within the pie that we enjoyed the most. Delicious, and we would recommend stopping here for your lunch.

The meat pies here are absolutely incredible. Delicious and hearty. I wouldn't think twice about driving out of the way to go here and get pies! They have vegetarian options too. The seating is limited so you may have to take it to go but don't leave here without a pie!

This is mainly a stand-up or take-away counter. It offers an especially large variety of savory pies as well as a few other products. All of the items sold are of mid-level quality, similar to the ready-made food you could buy in a supermarket. The big differential is the availability of unusual pies such as venison and lamb with mint.... More

NZ is a bit of a pie-obsessed country, and by the time we got to Miles Better we'd already tasted some amazing pies. Disappointingly, the pies from Miles Better were the worst we'd ever tasted - me the mince, and my husband the chicken. Both had fillings that were so dry, you'd have to drink gallons of water to choke... More

Always love the pies here!! Can't go past it.... love the venison ones, and the creamy chicken. Consistently good, even the coffee is good. Excellent range of flavours
