Preview: British Pie Week 2018 at Pieminister
On the lead up to British Pie Week (5th-11th March 2018), Sophie Rashley previews Pieminister’s exciting daily deals to celebrate the occasion.
The beginning of March not only signifies the end of this frosty winter, it also means British Pie Week 2018. British Pie Week occurs annually during the first full week of March which, this year, is the 5th until the 11th. However, if you are not the best at baking pies yourself, you are still in luck. Pieminister, located by Victoria Square, is running daily offers on their pies to celebrate.
“Due to the pies usually costing around £5.50, the Tuesday and Sunday offers are very enticing
Pieminister embodies everything I want from a dining experience: pies, mash, gravy, and affordable. With a wide range of pies, including a vegan pie (the Kevin) and gluten free options, there is something for everyone.
On Monday, the Mothership deal (includes any classic pie, mash, minty mushy peas, and cheddar & crispy shallots) is only £5, discounted from £9.40.
Tuesday sees that all vegetarian pies are £2 if you buy a side.
On Wednesday, pies are buy one get one free, so you can bring along a friend for no extra cost.
Thursday’s offer means that all pies with mushrooms in are £2. Although the price of this offer is very good, this does limit the choices to only three of their pies: the Fungi Chicken, the Wild Shroom, and the Kevin.
Friday’s offer means that a pie is donated for every pie bought, meaning you can eat happy in the knowledge that you’re helping to provide a meal for someone else.
On Saturday all ‘Tower of Power’ deals are discounted by £4, (stack of any two classic pies, served with mushy peas) making them £10 each.
Lastly, on Sunday all pies are 50% off before 1pm.
“Pieminister embodies everything I want from a dining experience: pies, mash, gravy, and affordable.
Due to the pies usually costing around £5.50, the Tuesday and Sunday offers are very enticing, and I will definitely be dragging my friends along on one of those days. Pieminister is one of my favourite places to eat due to its wide range of options on the menu and the casual, friendly feel to their restaurants.
Plus, these cheap deals mean you can splash out and get more of their great sides as well: I usually go with mash and onion rings. It is disappointing that their other options, such as their skillets and their puddings, aren’t also on offer. Yet, it is ‘British Pie Week’ so this isn’t really unexpected.
