NEW CHRISTMAS SHOP OPENING SOON!

This week is British Pie week (yes even a week for that)! We just found the definitive guide to pies and have shared this courtesy of Pie Rate: The world's premiere pie resource, with almost 600 pie reviews since 2009. The home of 

Originally set up by a pastry maker as a way to sell more of their pastry (as a clever marketing idea), it is now Britain’s main celebration of pie! Pubs, restaurants, pie shops across the country and more have used British Pie Week to run competitions, pie specials and the like (so why not ask what your local pie-selling pub is doing to celebrate pie week?), while supermarkets sometimes use the week to discount their pie ranges.

Pie week lasts for a whole week, so we will definitely be adding to the list above as the week progresses (and we get a chance to bake more fresh pies!).
