“Sinfully good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

My wife and I made our first trip to Proper Pie Co. this morning. By 10 minutes to 12 there was a line of about 20 people waiting for the place to open. But man was it worth the wait. We purchased sausage rolls, a chicken and kumara pie, a curried lentil and spinach pie, and a slice of pecan pie. I have traveled extensively in the UK and can honestly say these sausage rolls beat any I have ever had in England. Before I could drive home I had also finished half of the chicken and kumara pie. This is my new favorite spot on Church Hill. Savory and sinfully good. Just be prepared to wait in the line.

“A must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

Without a doubt that it is the sweet best pies I've ever had! I've enjoyed the Chocolate Chess, Strawberry Rhubarb, but the Treacle is awesome (meaning the best of friends refuse to share it).

The other pastries are wonderful, too. Try the Lamington!

The savories are well done and just the right amount. Aside from the outstanding flavor combinations and skillful creation, what stands out to me is the fact that these mini-meals don't come in a tinfoil pie pan. The have a nicely browned pie crust on top and bottom.

Nothing beats pie!

“Excellent pies this side of the pond!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Be prepared to stand in line, but it's well worth it. Tiny place with very little seating, so also be prepared to take the pies at eat them in your car, in your office, or at home. Savory or sweet, the pies are wonderful! Interesting combinations not easily found this side of the Atlantic. The crust of the pies can remind someone from Britain, New Zealand, Australia, etc. of what is available everywhere at home. We are anticipating that they will soon have pies for fix at home takeout available soon. We will be back!

This is a must! Located in quaint Church Hill, this shop takes you back in time. It is absolutely adorable. Most importantly, the pies! There are so many delicious pies to choose from, had peach cranberry! Mmmmmmm!
