Pie is a well-known British staple (as anyone who’s seen Sweeney Todd will attest) but can unfortunately vary in quality and flavor. If you’re keen on trying an authentic British pie, check out these pie places where you’re guaranteed to get buttery pastry, tasty fillings and lashings of gravy on the side.

Pieminister, Bristol

Although this pie company now has shops in several parts of the country, it all started in Bristol. Head here for a wide range of traditional (and less traditional) fillings, as well as options for vegans and those who follow a gluten free diet.

Wilsons of Crossgates, Leeds

This shop is a pastry place and butchers rolled into one, which means you’re guaranteed some seriously delicious pies. As a quality delicatessen, the team here really take care and know what they’re doing when it comes to making flavorsome, rich pies.

Castle’s Pies, London

A true London establishment, this pie shop has won awards this year for its meat pies. It also offers a historical delicacy, eel pie, which some visitors are brave enough to try! There isn’t much space inside, so buy your pies from the counter before taking them home to warm them through.
