Nice Pie is an award-winning pie bakery in Old Dalby, Leicestershire, where pie-loving experts cook, craft and crimp to perfection. These are the proper sort of pies (no sogginess in sight). Expect crisp edifices of butter pastry crammed to the crust with tasty fillings. Bring it on! And, with plenty of meat, fish and veggie options on offer, every pie fan is sure to find their favourite!
Nice Pie Opens Up Shop
Katharine Walmsley started the Nice Pie bakery in 2013. Long passionate about quality food, Katharine aimed to bring her love of savoury baking to foodies nationwide. Pies are things of (gravy-decked) beauty, but take time to make from scratch. This is where Nice Pie comes in! Simply choose your favourite pastry treat from their bakery or online store, pop it in the oven and await pie-fection!
Following the success of the pie bakery, Nice Pie expanded in 2015 with a new Farm Shop & Tea Room in West Bridgford. Now, locals can enjoy piled-high pie meals plus home-style breakfasts, scrummy cakes and freshly roasted Two Chimps Coffee. Great stuff!
Some of the Best Pies to Order Online
The meat pie. It’s perhaps the finest foodie infrastructure to grace our kitchen table. And Katherine and the team know what makes a really Nice Pie.
Quality fillings are the star. That’s why Nice Pie source all their meat and vegetables as locally as possible. Each premium cut is trimmed by hand, ensuring every bite of beef or mouthful of lamb and mint is flavoured to perfection.
Hand-crafted shortcrust pastry encases the filling. Crisp on top, robustly substantial around the sides and softly doughy underneath, Nice Pie pastry takes some beating!
Cut through the golden pastry and let the lavas of gravy run free. Then grab your fork, take a melty chunk of meat or carefully-spiced veggie and dive in! Hey, why not make it a double act with mounds of mashed potato? The perfect partner to your Nice Pie!
The Nice Pie Range
Nice Pie bake the classics we know and love. Venison? Steak and Red Wine? Chicken and Mushroom? Yep, they’re all there!
If you fancy a change, why not try an adventurous Nice Pie creation? Enjoy a game feast with a piece of Road Kill pie (featuring free-range pheasant, rabbit, venison and wood pigeon) or trial your tastebuds with the Ring of Fire pie (can you handle the heat?).
The Squirrel Pie is another Nice Pie masterpie(ce). It scooped gold at the British Pie Awards in 2014 and even captured the attention of Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty, who featured it on Friday Night Feast.
Meat pies not catching your eye? No problem. The Nice Pie range includes lots of fish and veg options for pie satisfaction all around. Why not indulge in a spot of luxury with Smoked Salmon and Broccoli or go meat-free with some Butternut Squash Cheesy Rolls? Pastry-wrapped perfection on everyone’s plate!
