The pies sold here are a must for anyone. They are full of meat and never any fat/gristle inside. They are well worth the money. This deli also has a great range of pasta and cheeses which I often bring back home with us.

When in Southwold I always pop in here to top up some deli items such as olives and other little titbits. It is a brilliant little shop and I always seem to find something different.

We've used this shop a number of times and always been satified with our purchase. There's always plenty on offer for a lunchtime snack. However, it is a little overpriced and we don't like to see food ready to eat, open to the customer. But we'll be back

The range of Pieminster pies is good and all of them are the Pieminster quality but they also have some other unusual food for sale. The Apricot and almond tart is delicious.

Another fantastic Southwold deli. Great service. Everything they sell is great, but not cheap. The pies are a must.

Delicious pies (Moo and Blue, Kate and Sidney...), a fantastic array of local cheeses, a small selection of cakes, but a HUGE array of olives, crackers and, surprisingly flavoured pork scratchings. Service was friendly , and the shop was heaving busy.

I am not usually a pie lover but was tempted while on holiday in Southwold. What an experience! Absolutely wonderful! We even bought some to bring home and put in the freezer. Whoever makes them is doing a fabulous job! If you are in town,you must give them a try. We especially enjoyed the Moo pies.

Looking in the window , the first thing that meets your eye is a wonderful array of pies. Not just meat pies but imaginative pies for vegetarians too. I was amazed at the choice and not surprised to see that the staff were all kept busy serving customers. If you love pies, you need to pay this shop a visit.... More
