Description: In 2012 we started a Pop Up Stall on Gillespie Road, Highbury, N5 selling handmade pies to Gourmet Gooners on Arsenal Match Days. Check Arsenal Fixtures for opening times. In 2013 we opened the UK's first Pie Deli/Cafe on 'Holloway Boulevard', Holloway, N7. As well as selling a vast selection of Handmade Pies, Scotch Eggs, Sweet Pies/Tarts we also specialise in Real Ales, Craft Beer, and Ciders. Enjoy your "Pie and a Pint" off a 100 year old turnstile whilst listening to some quality tunes (sometimes being played on 7" Vinyl) All the PIes can be bought cold from the Deli to be enjoyed at home with a bottle of Beer/Ale/Cider. Hot Takeaways are also available. In 2014 ........ To be continued.....

As we live round the corner, for too long a while we've witnessed a sad sequence of failures on this apparently awkwardly narrow wedge-shaped site - but now there's a champion to cheer! Full congratulations to the lovely couple who've had the imagination to pitch in on this corner, plus the talent and vision to create a warm welcome and stylish range of pies, with names to conjure up the Arsenal greats. As regular diners-out, this match-day lunchtime we felt we couldn't have met with a better five star treatment anywhere. Personal engagement, attention to detail, gossipy chat, and a sense of real team pride in what they're offering us all: refreshing change, reviving those memories of pies that really taste superb. As vegetarians, we were delighted to have a choice of three tempting and individual options (accompanied by absolutely delicious roast spuds and gravy!); any omnivore will find themselves daunted by the range of choice. Everything we had was prepared and cooked to tastebud perfection. Cosy and hospitable inside, friendly outside, fellow customers really seemed to be backing this little gem big-time. Whatever Arsenal's eventual premier position this year, Piebury Corner is flying the flag at the top of the league!

This is an interesting place to visit. They have a good selection of home made pies with different mash and gravies available on different days. Its quite old style and quaint intisde and the tables are actually old turnstiles. You dont need to be an Arsenal fan to go here but it helps with all the pies being named after well known footballers past and present. I have been in here a couple of times now and tried different pies and they have all been really good. Worth going to for a slightly unusual lunch. Not really the place to take someone on a date more a quick stop. The only negative for me is that its a little pricey!

Occupying a former pie & mash shop on the Holloway Road, Piebury Corner is a tiny enough to warrant the resurrection of the archaism "Pie Shoppe", and cosy enough to remain true to its origins as a stand in a front garden by the old Highbury stadium.

Keen to market itself as a deli - there are cheeses available by the truckle along with chutneys and the like - the pies are really what it's all about. Named for Arsenal legends and handmade by the owners, they are unswervingly delicious. Steak and ale is possibly the winner, but only by a nose past the venison and red wine and the chicken, ham, cream and tarragon.

Special mention must be made of the Scotch pies which are sourced from the top piemaker North of the border and their inclusion alone makes this an essential stop for any expat Scots within ten kilometres of Highbury. Haggis pies and macaroni pies turn up on Jockcentric events such as Burns night.

The deli aspect should not be dismissed - the cheeses are top notch as are the home made chorizo Scotch eggs and it's also important to note that the place is licenced, so a beer, cider or glass of wine with your pie is par for the course.

Brilliant comfort food at a bargain price.

We called up before we went to check if they had any veggie options. The owner was kind enough to make a vegetarian gravy especially. The goats cheese pie was lovely, so was the mash, roast potatoes and the veggie gravy. It's a nice little corner shop and great on cold days. Excellent service.
