The verdict: ‘If you got a pie like this at Gregg’s you’d be made up.’
But we’re not walking through the Arndale eating from a paper bag. These are gormet pies, a point the stingy portion of very nice mash (£1 extra) rams home.
Pie Minister pies turn out to be very good, well filled with quality ingredients, but the pastry is a touch soft. We wouldn’t say it had been microwaved, but it may be that the oven could be a little hotter. They go down very well indeed and at £4 a pie, pie at Pi is good value. Paul was very happy with his peas (£1 extra), but my gravy (£1 extra) suffered from a lump.
Heidi Pie is goat’s cheese, sweet potato, spinach and onion. Paul had Minty Lamb.
The place was pretty busy for a Wednesday, so expect it to rammed at the weekends.
