Nice Pie (Melton Mowbray) Pie Reviews


Pierate Logo Pie Review
The incredible "Pierate Logo" pie made by Nice Pie!
With all the high scoring exotic Nice Pie flavours we've pie rated so highly you’d be forgiven for thinking that they only do pies full of meat you’d never expect to be sold in a pie! And as delicious and highly rated as the kangaroowild squirrel and crocodile pies were (the latter being the highest rated pie from Nice Pie so far!), they also cater for the more “typical” British pie eater too! So whether you want to take a walk on the wild side or stick to something more typical in your pie, you're in for a nice pie treat!

We've been delighted to sample and rate so many of their pies in the last few years - the reviews of which can all be seen here - that we thought they deserved a Nice Pie Leaderboard! Amazingly nearly every pie is Pierate Recommended (rated above 5/7) with a growing number of Pierate Highly Recommended pies (rated above 6/7) - an amazing feat considering the weird and wonderful content of some of the pie fillings!

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 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 and their constant striving for pie-fection!

And it's a sign of how far they've come that they had a 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 on Channel 4.

All in all, these pies truly live up to their billing as nice pies!!!
