Our Pies!

We’ve developed more than 150 recipes to fill our crisp, golden pies.

Each week we select at least six fillings to bake. The choice depends on the season and our latest inspirations. During the summer months we use fresh herbs, a variety of seasonal vegetables and lighter, cream based fillings that work as well cold as hot for our fish, chicken, gammon and vegetarian options. Customers tell us that our pies make the perfect picnic treat.

Come the colder months replace the creamy based fillings with stock based recipes. We love using game and our Cotswold venison fillings are always very popular. We also have partridge and pheasant recipes to tickle a game-lover’s fancy.

A couple of fillings are so popular, namely our award-winning Breton chicken and the rich overnight shin of beef, that we bake them year round.


All the ingredients are cooked, so if you'd like your pie hot, you are reheating, not cooking....

Reheat at 160 degrees C (fan oven) or 180 degrees C or gas mark 4 for 20 minutes.
