People queue up for a reason: simply because they have the best pies! We tried the venison and the nachos pie. Pastry was not soggy, flakey, filling amazing and flavourful. Just yum!!

It was suggested by a friend that if visiting Arrowtown I should stop for a pie. I had the spicy chicken as well as a steak pie. The pastry was crispy, not soggy like many pies and the filling was generous. Very tasty!
