The Nice Pies we've highly rated include our highest rated fish pie - Smoked Salmon and Broccoli - and unsurprisingly our highest rated exotic pie - the Crocodile, Leek and Potato pie!
But they've not just been very highly rated with us! Their success has been rewarded with numerous awards from the Great Taste Awards to the British Pie Awards, where at the British Pie Awards 2014 we were delighted to hear that they had won the Champion Small Producer Award! You can see their amazing pie made for the WWI commemorations class in our British Pie Awards 2014 article. The full list of their awards can be found on their new website.
One of the things that has made Nice Pie stand out to us is that they are always willing to try something new - as seen by their expanding traditional and exotic pie range, their constant striving for pie-fection and recently their accreditation as an Authentic Melton Mowbray Pie producer.
And it's a sign of how far they've come in the last year that they had a recent visit from none other than celebrity chefs Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty - some photos of which can be seen on the Nice Pie website! This was for the TV series Jamie and Jimmy's Friday Night Feast - which was on Channel 4 on Friday 13th February - and you can see a clip of it on the Channel 4 website here.

Both pies were filled very well with strong marks for capacity and therefore even more impressive that you could pick up and hold a slice of the pie without it crumbling under the weight of the meaty content! The pastry was nice and golden in colour, with a tasty shortcrust pastry which was only a little crumbly in places. Each pie was £6.50, which is very reasonable for a large pie that could be shared between 2 or more people.

Once again Nice Pie have produced the goods, with two more Pierate Recommended pies – and while it’s hard to resist the amazing range of exotic pies Nice Pie do, you would certainly be missing out if you didn’t tuck into a more traditional pie flavour from their range when given the chance!
