Description: We, at our National British Pie Award winning Handmade Pie & Ale House are setting out to create the most premium of pies and to serve the most traditional, tastiest constantly changing ales, of which we always have some local and some from various parts of the country. We now have up to six to choose from and you are always welcome to have a FREE try before you buy!! We are proud to have our beautifully renovated old restaurant / bar where you can sit, enjoy and take in the charming surroundings whilst being looked after by our lovely caring staff and you can eat drink and be merry. Our pies are lovingly made by us, by hand, in our open-plan pie kitchen (where you can also see them being made!) With our homemade pastry and homemade fillings, no two pies are ever the same. We are constantly making our pies fresh from a selection of over 38 different flavours - we even make our own low calorie 'smart pies' and of course several vegetarian options. Also, if for some reason you don't fancy one of our multi award winning pies, we even have a NON PIE menu, which, believe it or not is called the 'We Don't Just Do Pies' menu! This has an ever changing variety of good old home cooking favourites and specialty boards, such as a meat & cheese sharer, our own crispy chicken wings, our own homemade gooey Brie Wedges in Panko breadcrumbs and 1/2 a rotisserie chicken on a board! Plus good old proper relaxing Sunday lunches, with roast leg of lamb, aged Scottish beef, stuffed rolled crispy belly pork etc. Not hungry? Alternatively, if you prefer just come and enjoy a drink in our beautiful bar and just have a good old piece of free hospitality on the side.......

Although the premises are old and small a lot of effort has been used to make it a good place to eat and drink. I had the chicken and mushroom pie accompanied by a lovely pint of real ale. The service was good although it was busy and when we had finished eating we were not made to feel un wanted. I will certainly go again.

Just been in on a busy week night and had a tasty dinner for a group of 9 of us. We had a nice table, friendly service and delicious food as expected! Ed and Sophie were serving us both at the bar and at the table and were lovely, attentive and quick. Couldnt complain :-)

Great concept, great food, I personally recommend the "GKC"! Wonderful. Would advise booking have tried many times to get a table here, always very popular.
Friendly and attentive staff. Presentation is really good, very clean and a lovely warm welcome on a cold March weeknight! Shame on the location - goes with the saying "never judge a book by its cover"!

Went there with the wife on a Thursday night. Sat upstairs and the atmosphere and decor are good.
The mrs had the corned beef hash pie and I had the steak and Stilton both were really good and I love the way the food is presented. Little tip - have the mash with your pie!
I had a couple of pints of thatchers and the mrs had a latte and a o.j and our bill was just over 30 quid.
If I was being really picky then the service lets it down a little. We requested over the phone an upstairs table and when we got there they told us we were downstairs. Also when ordering drinks at your table that seems to take 15 mins a time.
Still a nice causal dining experience and would defo go back there again.

Been here several times for a great value lunch prior to visiting other traditional town pubs for beer. The pies are well made and accompaniments compliment them nicely, the free pint being a great touch. I would recommend to anybody who enjoys good quality pub fare.
