Great pies, good beer and friendly service: what more could you want? Not only had a GF pie for me (preferable to order 2 days in advance to be certain of availability) but even advised on choice of GF beers available too.

The staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. The food was scrummy and we will be back. They even stored my daughters push bike safely.

We've been to Pie and Ale a few times now and always been impressed. The food is wonderful, there's plenty of option and it we all enjoyed what we had. Although this trip we did have a rather long wait for the food even though they weren't too busy which is why I've not given full marks. The main reason we chose Pie and Ale is because they always serve a vegan option so as well as the rest of the group enjoying themselves I loved that it was easy for me to find something to eat too. None of us were happy they charge extra to swap mash fir wedges though, as the pies are already charged a decent amount. The atmosphere is really friendly and laid back and the staff all seem happy and will do whatever they can to help you. Would highly recommend!

This was our first visit to Pie and Ale and we took our daughter and partner there for an early evening meal. The food was really good and I would recommend the steak pie with red cabbage pie topping. The portion sizes were really generous so there was no room for any pudding. There was a good choice of ale and the wine was very reasonably priced. The staff were really friendly and attentive. We will definitely go back and would recommend this restaurant to our friends.

Went to Pie and Ale with a large party, and there was mixed reaction to the food. Some people really enjoyed the meals, but others including myself felt that there wasn't enough content. The pies had little meat in them, and it was only the sauce that provided any flavour. I thought that the portions were also on the small side, particularly given that we want plenty of food to soak up the beer, as that's what the combination of pie and ale is all about, isn't it?

This was my second visit. I had a couple of friends over and thought I'd introduce them to Pie and Ale,they weren't disappointed and really appreciated the selection of beers on offer. Our server was very knowledgeable about the different ales and help us make delicious selections.

Fabulous pies and really good beer selection. The staff were excellent and all our party of 8 thought Pie and Ale was a place well worth a revisit as a party

Staff were excellent, did all they could to make our experience positive, even seating us in the sister restaurant to ensure we were comfortable as I am on crutches. And the pies are so good that when guests in The Bakerie saw what we had, they were asking how to order them too! Will definitely be going back again
