Bold Street is now a hub of great eateries and coffee shops. If someone visiting the city asks for places to eat, I always suggest to just wander along Bold St as you have an excellent load to pick from.
Pieminister is the latest to join in the fun of this street. They opened just over a month ago and have already become a firm favourite with some people. After going there the other night, I can see why.
The food is hearty, tasty, and excellent value for money. So let me tell you what we had.
Our Pie Choices
The menu is jam packed with delicious choices. You can obviously order a pie, but there are other options too. The Skillets are dishes cooked without pastry and baked in a cast iron pan. The next time I go I want to try their Mac n Cheese Skillet.
They also have a great selection of starters, pigs in blankets (yes, yes, yes) included.
We went for the Pie & Side offer, which is only £7.95. It goes up £1 if you want to change your side to a super side. I did, I went for the Skin on Fries with Rosemary Salt.
For my pie, I ordered the Moo, a British beef steak and craft ale pie. All pies come served with a gravy boat, and once poured over you won’t be able to wait to get stuck in.
This meal was honestly perfection. The pie was cooked lovely. It was just the right size, and the chips made it for me. Delicious.
Ste went fairly similar to me and ordered the Moo Dog Pie. This comes with British beef steak, bacon and Brewdog ale. By the speed in which he finished it off, I know he found it amazing.
Before we had even finished our meals we already said that we couldn’t wait to head back again. That is how much we were loving them. A lady I work with loves a good pie, and she always asks first if the pie on the menu is a proper pie. One with a top and bottom.
I can confirm that if you’re a fellow proper pie lover, then these sure are. They’re fully encased in flaky pastry that tastes a treat.
You can tell that this business, set up by Jon and Tristan, has a love of good, hearty food. They bonded over their love of good food, and having a vision of opening up their own place. Pieminister was thought up whilst sitting on Bondi Beach, and first opened in Bristol in 2003.
Since then they have spread their fantastic pies all over the UK with 9 restaurants, and 7 cafes.
Head to Pieminister Liverpool
I do head to a lot of different places to try out the food, as I like to have options. Who doesn’t. I just know though that I will be heading back here again and again.
Not only did the food really impress me but so did other things they did throughout the restaurant. If you order tap water, a donation of 75p will be added to your bill. This donation goes directly to Frank Water and their DrinkMe: SaveLives campaign. I love this idea, more restaurants should introduce something like this.
Their menu also offers vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. So this place really does cater for everyone.
If you’re not too full up after your mains, then you have to look at the dessert menu. I’d recommend to try the Soft Scoop Sundaes. They’re so good.
You will certainly leave here feeling full to the brim, but very content. I really do recommend trying this place out. The food was of a great standard, and the prices were super, considering portion size and quality.
I’d love to hear from you if you’ve ever been to a Pieminister before, or are you maybe thinking of going now? Tweet me or let me know below.
