Pieminister Pie Reviews
Pieminister Pie Election Winners

Pieminister pie company are based out of Bristol and now sell their pies across the country in supermarkets, at food markets and in various pubs. We've rated quite a broad range of pies from Pieminister, at a range of venues, including from the market near where it all began in St Nics Market in Bristol City Centre, plus shops and markets in London.


They are a real success story, showing how a local pie stall can turn into a country-wide pie provider. They even have a shop in Amsterdam, Holland! While - as pie purists - we did question their move into "ligher pies" a few summers ago that are not fully encased in pastry, they have generally scored very highly on the 7 Cs of pie rating.


Pieminister are keen advocates of British Pie Week and for British Pie Week 2015 they even held a 'pie election' to bring back three of their old flavours. We got a sample of the winners and rated the overall champion - Minty Lamb - as Pierate Highly Recommended! They also gave us a Cricket Pie to review in British Pie Week 2017 - and we're talking cricket the insect, not cricket the sport!!! You can view our reaction to eating the cricket pie in our Leeds Pie Tour video here:
