Good atmosphere and nice staff. It was the 4 of and we all took the menu with pie, 2 sides and a Stick. I would suggest sweet potatoes fries (adding 1 pound) / baked beans/ mash as a side and the venison pie (amazing!). Not very good the "Heidi" pie, too heavy and full of cheese. Anyway, we payed 45...

Chicken and mushroom pie, sweet potato fries and slaw was lovely. The slaw was mostly red cabbage in a kind of balsamic vinaigrette, really tasty. Friend had a beef and ale filling with... More

We both had the Moo and Brew....think the cow had mooved on as the amount of meat and gravy at bottom of skillet meal was almost non existent!!!! For an extra £1 each we had the coleslaw and sweet potato fries which were very nice. Waitress service, however, was very good.

I had the paneer and spinach pie with onion gravy - it was absolutely gorgeous. Lovely crispy pastry, smooth mash and a very tasty filing. Highly recommended.

I've been a Pieminister fan for many years having made them a key part of my summer diet whilst photographing music festivals. I don't think they run their Pieminister festival stalls anymore so I'm glad I'm able to get their delicious pies at there restaurants and at selected pubs. (Their supermarket pies aren't the same as their festival/restaurant ones) This... More

We called into Pieminster for a shopping lunch break on Friday. As you would expect, the range of pies was excellent and the menu, although not expansive, has plenty of mix and match options. The service was prompt and friendly and the food arrived quickly, hot and well presented. Special mention must go to the jug of gravy, thick and... More

Delicious venison pie for me and saag pineer for my wife. Both went down a treat with mash and sweet potato fries. All washed down with refreshing glass of Brewdog 5AM Red ale. We'll be back and highly recommend visiting if you're partial to pies!

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.
