The Pie Tin knows flakey pastry and fresh fillings like no-one else. There is plenty here to satisfy both vegetarians and meat-lovers alike, from the Mac ’n’ Cheese, to more classic options like a Shepherd’s Pie. All pies are handmade on premise each day, including a range of sides like baked beans, potato mash and salads. Failsafe crowd pleasers include the Oreo Cookies and Cream pie and a home-style American sweet pumpkin pie. You can even get them blended into a milkshake if you prefer your pies in liquid form. Whether you are catching up with friends or dropping by for a quick dinner (they do discounted pies at the end of the day), you can’t go wrong with The Pie Tin. Just don’t assume you can grab a slice to eat on the road though. With these generous portions, you’ve got to sit down and relish each bite.
