British Pie Week: Roundup

8 March 2016
British Pie Week: Roundup
It’s British Pie Week, a whole week dedicated to celebrating the glorious pastry encrusted pub classic - and lucky for Leeds-based pie fans, there’re pies galore to go around whatever flavour floats your gravy boat.

Pieminster

The most immediately obvious place to celebrate British Pie Week, Pieminster has chosen this week to debut its new Saag Pie-neer. Packed with peas, paneer, spinach, potato, chilli and mango, it’s a sweet and spicy meat-free creation bound to tempt even staunch carnivores.

If this Indian-inspired invention doesn’t get your taste buds tingling, there are plenty more pies to take your pick from. After all, Pieminster is dedicated purely to pies all year round!

You can view the full Pieminster menu on their website.

Bundobust

Indian street food kitchen Bundobust is jumping on the Pie Week wagon, serving limited edition Bundo Pie & Peas all week. A distinctly Bundobust take on pie, fans of the restaurant’s current menu will no doubt enjoy the potato and cauliflower filling cooked with chillies, garlic and mustard, and topped with poppadom crust.

For more information and the full Bundobust menu, visit their website.

Leeds Brewery

Leeds Brewery is holding a pie off, asking visitors to its seven pubs to vote for their favourite pie. Each pub will be serving a signature pie, which will be featured on Leeds Brewery’s special pie menu available in all their pubs. The winning pie will receive a permanent place on the Leeds Brewery menu. All you have to do is vote on Twitter using the appropriate hashtag listed below.

Black Swan

Black Swan are serving a surprise pie each day! For an indication of what to expect think along the lines of their delicious beef, shallot & carrot pie with red wine gravy (pictured). Pie-fect!

Whitelock’s Ale House

There’s really no better time than Pie Week if you haven’t already tried Whitelock’s award-winning Beef and Ale pie! It’s a classic combo, served with chunky chips and seasonal veg. Luckily this one’s on the menu all year round, because we guarantee you’ll be going back for more!

Is there anywhere we haven’t mentioned that you know people can head along to for a cracking pie? Let us know on Facebook!
