Tuck into a Best of British pie!

Pies, they’ve been around in one form or another for thousands of years, with links back to the ancient Egyptians. There are references to “pyes” in the English language going back to the 14th century and according to recent reports, crumbly, flaky pastry delights have never been more popular.

It seems the chilly weather we’ve been enjoying is partly behind the increase in sales. The UK had its coldest Easter Day on record this year and one supermarket recorded a 246 per cent increase in pie sales in the week running up to the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Our chefs are also doing their bit to raise the profile of the humble pie by running weekly Pie Shops at all of our country and coastal hotels, and coastal villages. Guests enjoying UK Summer Breaks at Warner Leisure Hotels will be able to tuck into freshly made creations from the Pie Shop on certain nights of the week when there’s always a great selection on offer, including a fish option and something for vegetarians. Turkey and ham, vegetable and fish pie are just some of the favourites that regularly find their way onto the menu.

Chefs preparing Pie Restaurant Food

If the thought of a homemade pie is proving seriously tempting, but you’d rather just relax in your room than come down to dinner, there’s no problem whatsoever. Make just one phone call and our chefs will be more than happy to plate up downstairs and organise for your food to be brought up to your room.

From goats’ cheese and butternut squash to the more traditional steak and ale, there are plenty of options when it comes to mouth-watering fillings. What would you most like to see on the menu when you next pay a visit to a Warner property? Let us know using the comments section below.


  1. The vegetarian pies sound delicious.But please, please, please ,could there be more options for us vegetarians? We seem to have been forgotten in the grand scheme of things! Then maybe you might get us to return to WARNERS IN THE NEAR FUTURE. The lack of Vegi food is the reason we haven’t been back to you for a while.
    Would this be too big a challenge for your Chefs?

    • Hi Linda,

      I’m really sorry you feel forgotten, we often have 2 or 3 options for Vegatarians on our menu. I would also recommend stating at your time of booking that you’re a vegetarian and with enough notice the chef would happily make you something or tweak one of our recipes for you.

      Thanks so much for your comments.
