Tasty Pies at PieMinister Cardiff!

I posted yesterday about we had been invited to watch PawPatrol Live, well after the show we had a little wander around the shops before heading to lunch. 

Luckily the very kind people at Pieminister in Cardiff had invited us to try out their menu!

Now normally when we go into Cardiff we pretty much always end up eating at a fast food chain and I don’t really know why this is, maybe as it’s convenient and quick. I hadn’t really thought about why we don’t go somewhere nicer for a change. As I’m sure we could spend that little bit more and have a much healthier tastier lunch. 

Pieminister was pretty easy to find, it is located in the heart of Cardiff on St Mary’s street. Pieminister has won a number of awards including the Gold award for their gluten Free Ranger pie and Gluten Free Heidi Pie in the British Pie Awards. They also won seven gold stars in 2017. 

When we entered we were greeted and shown to our table.

I was pleased to see that there were children’s crayons and colouring in menus to keep them entertained!

The interior of Pieminister is warm and welcoming, We felt very comfortable and relaxed and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. With a wide range of pies on the menu – from classic vegetarian, vegan and gluten free there really is something for everyone! From the traditional creamy mash, minted mushy peas and their famous gravy to zesty slaw, salads, chips or halloumi fries.

Pieminister also serve their delicious soft serve sundaes from chocolatey and fruity as well as the more adventurous Pork Pie sundae which includes vanilla, apple, bacon and bourbon maple syrup with pork scratchings.

I chose the Free Ranger off of the classic menu. This is a free range British chicken and Wiltshire cured ham pie with leek and thyme, served with a boat of gravy for £5.95. I have to say that it was delicious and I ate every last scrap of it! It was so creamy and full of flavour.

Also this is a bit off topic but I never realised the different ways of eating a pie! As you can see I cut mine into slices whereas my husband cut the top off his and ate the contents first!

Anyway my husband chose the chicken of Aragon pie off the same menu. This is a free range British chicken, dry cured bacon and tarragon pie. Also £5.95.  

Both our children chose the mac n cheese option from the children’s menu. The side salad that came with this wasn’t very child friendly though I have to admit as it contained some rather strong flavoured onions. Whilst my husband and I both very much enjoyed our pies neither of our children were very fussed on the mac n cheese which is unusual for them as they do enjoy eating this at home.

I had a taste of their meals and I’m not sure whether it was the cheese or more likely the seasoning but it had a very strong taste to it. They did however very much enjoy the soft serve ice creams!  
 
There is also a seating area in front of the restaurant for dining out on those lovely sunny days!

I just love meringue so I had to try to the lemon meringue ice cream and my husband had the apple pie ice cream. It did not disappoint oh my word, I’m not really one for ice cream but this was a delicious, smooth and creamy frozen yogurt with zingy lemon curd and sticky meringue.

My husband also enjoyed his which included vanilla, apple, salted caramel and sweet pie crumb.

On an extra note I was quite impressed to see the straws used for the drinks were made from cardboard, well done on that front too! 

Overall we would highly recommend taking a visit to Pieminister. The food is generous, delicious and fantastic value and the atmosphere is lovely and friendly! 

It really is the perfect place to visit for a quick yummy lunch or evening treat, you could even make a night of it with their great music and well stocked bar of craft beers, ciders and happy hour cocktails!
