It is a well-known fact that British people love pies. Not to be confused with American-style pies which are mostly sweet, the ultimate British comfort food is a delicious, golden pastry wrapped around a succulent, meaty filling. We love pies so much that last week we celebrated British Pie week.
Watch our last video to find out where to do to taste some delicious pies.
If you are in Edinburgh, here are some other great places to try one:
1. The Piemaker, South Bridge
A popular place in the city centre offering over 30 different meat, vegetarian and sweet pies.
2. Ghillie Dhu, West End
The Ghillie Dhu’s Ceilidh dances hold a regular spot on our social programme and their bar menu includes a great selection of pies.
3. The Dogs, Hanover Street
A great venue for a sit-down dinner or lunch, The Dogs’ menu often includes creative meat or vegetable pies.
4. Storries Home Bakery, Leith Walk
This bakery offers a great selection of pies and opens very early in the morning.
5. Stephen’s Bakery
Sadly there isn’t a Stephen’s Bakery shop in Edinburgh (the nearest one is in Dunfermline!) but luckily you can still get your hands on one of their delicious pies at most Scotmid and Co-Op supermarkets around the city!
