Ate around 6pm midweek whilst on business so consequently quiet. Upside is that food was quick hot and tasty. Some good combo deals available and overall was happy. Attentive and pleasant waiting in staff. No complaints at all

Great service with a great waitress making us laugh and generally have a good time. Bangin' vegetarian pie - struggle to find those anywhere

A change from the usual type of lunch in Cardiff. An excellent choice of pies, but the Kate and Sidney pie was a bit too strong on the kidney. The Craft beer was good, but the choice Limited. Excellent service and reasonably priced.

A good value meal in a nice chilled out surroundings in the centre off Cardiff. It was empty when we got there, so fodder was fresh cooked and fast. I can't complain!

Loved the pies, great sides, good cocktails all served by friendly staff and at a reasonable price. There were eight of us and we were all happy with our meals. We will be back.

Popped in on a Saturday afternoon for lunch during a lunch break while at a conference. Was seated immediately when arrived and order was taken promptly. It then took 45 minutes for the food to arrive. We both ordered standard menu items. At no point...More

Hi Pam I am very sorry we disappointed you on your recent visit. All our pies are subject to availability, and sometimes we do run out of stock on popular pies as demands for different pies change almost daily. We have also had a few...More

PIEMINISTER must be doing something right, as I've just eaten from their restaurant (via Deliveroo) two nights in a row. Delicious pies, tasty gravy, mash and minty peas were all of good quality and served in nice recyclable - and microwave-safe - brown boxes. Personally,...More

Lovely first visit to Pie Minister. We were greeted by a lovely waitress called Natalia who took us to our booked table and explained the menu to us. The food was quick and delicious! I highly recommend the haloumi sticks. Will definitely be visiting again!

You can only book for 6 or more, just turn up if less, quite a quick turnaround, despite what the management may say so stick around (trust what the waitresses say)

Pieminister Cardiff is our flagship restaurant in Wales and is located in the heart of the city on St. Mary's Street. Whilst award-winning pies are what we stand for, there's lots more to try too. Pieminister Cardiff is full of life and the hustle and bustle of the city, so makes a great lunch stop whether you are working, shopping or visiting the city. By night the restaurant turns into a dinning destination with craft ales, wines and cocktails and ice cream pies for pudding.
