We are always on the lookout for a good potato pie. The pastry and potato topping were both lovely and crunchy. The other selections on the shop looked very tempting as well.

We found this little bakery by chance. All four of us had a different pie 🥧 and all four were delicious. Prawn 🦐 and garlic. Curry. Chicken and vegetables. Chicken and honey 🍯 mustard. Would recommend to other pie lovers.

Had a pie but had trouble eating it as the filling was too runny and I made a real mess. The flavoure was nice.

Their selection of tasty food changes regularly and staff are attentive to customers even when queues are long. Introducing coffee to go with take away food was a great idea
