I absolutely loved our experience at Puddingface Pie Pub. The food was absolutely delicious - we shared bites so we got to taste several pies and they were all wonderful in their own way. The only problem was trying to decide which delectable sounding pies from the menu to order - great selection. The pies were fresh and steaming hot, the service was good, and the setting very quaint and updated. Loved it and wish I lived closer!

Pies were good - beef & horseradish had plenty of pieces of tender decent quality beef & the chicken & mushroom pie was equally good. Well cooked vegetables & mashed potatoes which tasted of potato. The only let down was a sauce boat of bland packet gravy. Why spoil things with that? You clearly have a good pie maker - can't they make proper sauce?
Also - a new 'interior design' book is needed.
I will return for the pies & the fantastic greeting.

I really don't know how to fully describe one of the most succulent steak and kidney pies I have ever eaten. In a word Fantastic. My wife had a vegetable pie, again very well received. A choice of mash or chips. A large plate full, leaving little room for pudding, again a good choice.
Wine and drinks are reasonable priced, the staff friendly and attentive.
If there is a downside, it is a very busy place come early.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We arrived shortly before evening service began so had time to enjoy a beer and decide what to have from the menu. Having been impressed at the various and interesting fillings being offered I decided on steak and kidney (I knew I would). The pie was fantastic. Thin and crumbly pastry, soft beef chunks and plenty of kidney. The sauce in the pie had the kidney flavour too which I liked a lot. l also liked the hot plate being brought to the table, so often good food is spoilt by cold plates. Next time we visit I will have another pint and spend some more time deciding on which pie filling to have before getting another steak and kidney.
