Celebrate British Pie Week with 5 of the best spots in London
According to Pukka Pies, more pies are sold in London than anywhere else in Britain.
Yes, London is the Pie capital of the UK, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. To celebrate British Pie Week and number of our favourite spots are offering yummy deals and exclusives!
Whilst steak pies are popular across the whole country, there’s nowhere more so than in London and the South East where they’re the top selection.
Chicken and Mushroom is a popular choice in the Midlands, and the people of Yorkshire love Steak and Ale.
Eating too many pies isn’t great for people’s waistlines, but Phil Smith, Head of Bakery at Pukka Pies, revealed why pies need to be a part of everyone’s diet.
He said: “Pies are great, honest comfort food – perfect for when life throws you a curve ball. Well, there we have it!
The Windmill Mayfair
The Windmill Mayfair sells approximately 1,400 pies per week! That’s a lot. To help celebrate British Pie Week, they’re offering 50% of their potato topped and suet pastry wrapped pies with a prize. They’ll be giving away hundreds of gifts to customers buying one of their pies between the 6 and 12 March.
You could be walking away with anything from a Kindle Fire to limited edition merchandise from Chivas Regal whisky.

The Rosewood Hotel’s Holborn Dining Room
This is not just a pork pie. Calum Franklin, executive head chef at The Rosewood Hotel’s take on a pork pie is one which gets people talking.
Made with pork shoulder, pork leg, pancetta and smoked ham hock as well as fennel seeds, the salty, deep-flavoured meat and buttery pastry are a perfect pairing.

Champagne and truffle humble pie
Bob Bob Ricard’s Champagne and truffle humble pie is basically not humble at all. Take mushrooms, pecorino cheese, leeks and pearl barley plus bulk and creaminess while a prettily decorated crust gives a final flourish.
This is one you vegetarians can enjoy too!

Golden Union Fish Bar
A staple pie. The Steak and ale!
The Golden Union is a well known Soho spot, and has table service, retro furnishings and traditional menu that will through you straight back into the 80s. Their steak and ale is served with gravy and you can order a proper portion of chips on the side!

Pies aren’t just savoury… they can be filled with sugar and sweet things, just like the deep-filled pudding pie at Chicken Shop.
It boasts generous chunks of apple in a tart sauce, encased in sweet and buttery shortcrust pastry. It is brought to the table in its pie dish and divvied up before your eyes, and served with a family-sized jug of cream for pouring. YES!
