British Pie Week at The Butcher's Shops

We Brits take our pies very seriously and even have a week dedicated to our savoury to prove it.

In 2016 a petition entitled: 'Make wrongly describing a casserole with a pastry lid as a pie a criminal offence' achieved 5,687 signatures.

"For too long customers in pubs and restaurants have ordered what is described on the menu as a pie only to be served with casserole in a pot covered by a puff pastry lid. This is not a pie and is also curiously difficult to consume."

The Oxford English Dictionary describes a pie as "A baked dish of fruit, or meat and vegetables, typically with a top and base of pastry."

You'll be pleased to know, therefore, that our pies are fully encased in a delicious layer of pastry! Celebrate British Pie Week 2017 with us and choose from:

Chicken and Mushroom (large and small)

Steak and Kidney

Steak and Potato

Steak and Ale

Steak and Blue Cheese

Rabbit
