Pieminister has to be the best pie maker in the country. Their award-winning pies come in a variety of 14 fl avours to suit all palates, from the traditional steak and ale to the more contemporary goat's cheese and sweet potato. Their pie and mash cafés are simple, unpretentious and enjoyed by everyone. The service is informal and friendly, and on our visit we were greeted with huge smiles and a comprehensive explanation of what was on offer. Oxford's shop offers plenty of seating inside or the option to grab a takeaway for lunch on the hoof. They also do a range of hot drinks and homemade brownies, so it makes for a relaxed meeting place. Pieminister prides itself on being an ethical pie producer, using only outdoor-reared British meat, free-range British chicken and dairy produce and MSC-certified fish. *Price range represents the cost of a pie and a drink.
