Two words: salmon, bacon. Yes you can get this in a pie and what an amazing pie it is. Make sure you rock up hungry enough to try all the flavours. These really are beautiful pies - meaty, flavoursome and generous. Do yourself a favour and go...NOW!

... You're bonkers! This little piece of heaven makes my mouth water just talking about it! Done in, or outside. Be prepared to sit on the pavement cause these guys are seldom quiet. And if they are, it's probably because they're shut! Seafood pie, pork and apple pie, chicken, mince, steak and cheese. Go even one step further if you... More

My wife and I had read in a local publication about the long-awaited opening of Franz Leiber's Bakehouse and we couldn't believe our luck when we stumbled in to see the Mayor in adornment and champagne (sorry, "sparkling wine") immediatey after the official opening. What a treat! We enjoyed a unique breakfast of pies and excellent - but what better... More

On a Sunday afternoon at 1.30pm there was a line out the front door and on to the footpath. A number of the pies were sold out. What was left were pies with meat, substantial amounts of meat. Very flavoursome, although one of the pies could have been a little hotter. The popularity of this place says it all. After... More

We visited twice in a week and the Bakehouse moved premises during this time, but the pies were amazing. Our group tried the salmon & bacon and the pork & apple. The pork and apple was like a roast dinner in a pie! I've never had so much meat in a pie - and the crackling on the top was... More

We had heard recommendations about the Fairlie Bakehouse pies, and they were everything that we had hoped for! I had the salmon and bacon, my wife had the pork belly and apple - both were exceptional. An added bonus - the Bakehouse is (temporarily?) relocated to an old tin shed next door, while renovations were taking place in the Bakehouse... More

We visited the Bakehouse on two consecutive days, and had different pies, cakes and hot drinks. The pies were all exceptional. Who would have thought you could have a pie that tasted like a complete roast lamb dinner! The creamy chicken was chock full of succulent chicken, and the meat pies are full of meat, and not just gravy. The... More

We stopped at the Fairlie Bakehouse for lunch on a trip from Christchurch to Queenstown as we had heard that the pies were amazing. And we weren't disappointed! My pork and apple pie was stuffed full of succulent meat, tender and delicious (although the crackling on top was a little hard on the teeth!). The lamb casserole pie and pepper... More

Mince and cheese pie was good. Pastry so good. Staff serve customers quickly which was good as the line was out the door! They need a vegetarian pie though.
