                                                      A small brunch menu. We (a table of 3) ordered 2x full English on a puff pastry base and 1x eggs florentine. The food took a long time to come out despite there only being a couple of other people in the venue. They bought out the wrong dish for me, bacon instead of salmon. My two friends complained the puff pastry base on their dishes was very dry, hard, and annoying. The coffee was nice, but the orange juice tasted like it was from a carton and I expected fresh - but I should have also asked if that was the case before ordering. In all, I was underwhelmed especially considering the other reviews. I won’t come back as there are many other brunch venues in London which have a better food with more options that require less waiting.

                                                      I booked and was asked, one day prior to my reservation, to reconfirm my table. When I got to the restaurant, it was closed.

                                                      Lovely place to go for breakfast. Everything was clean, service was great. Food was exceptional, we got the full English tart and it was better than expected. 10/10 would highly recommend and definitely go again!

                                                      Loved the experience of visiting Epic Pies.....it does exactly what it says on the tin. I had a Ham Hock and Leek pie, one of the best I've tasted. Will be back!

                                                      Epic Pies is a little gem in the heart of The City. It is what it says on the tin, - delicious pies, crispy chips and buttery peas. Plus great friendly service and it’s very reasonably priced too, - including the wine. Would definitely return/recommend.

                                                      Absolutely wonderful little restaurant. We sat in the courtyard which was so beautifully decorated with fairy lights, and quiet as it is off the beaten track. Food was excellent - between us we tried each pie, and they were all excellent. Pastry was perfect, fillings flavoursome and juicy, with fresh peas and brilliantly buttery mash. I was curious about the liquor (an option to go with the pie instead of gravy), but opted for the gravy - but the waitress brought me out some liquor on the house to try anyway! The service couldn’t have been better - as the evening started to cool down, we were even brought cherry stone heat packs, without asking! Absolutely lovely place for a meal.

                                                      Had take away pies from here pre-lockdown which were great. So glad to see they are open again and took the opportunity to eat-in this time. Lovely place to have an informal business meal. Down to earth atmosphere and restaurant quality food. Will be heading back more for sure.

                                                      Nice pies…great mash. Sat outside - no option for anything else. Fortunately it was a nice evening. Staff were very friendly.

                                                      Absolutely delicious, tasty food, could not fault it. It was very quiet on the day I had dined there and due to current situation it may remain so, unfortunately. I'm sure it will pick up once there is normality with the working situation of companies and also when tourists are due back again. Definitely, worth a return dining experience very soon.

                                                      It's a nice place, wasn't too crowded for lunch. Small plates and pies were really good. The service was a bit slow (we waited about 30 min for food).

                                                      If you enjoy a good pie this is the place to go. If you have been unimpressed by pies then try these. They are aptly named and to my mind not over stating it. I had the lamb shank pie and my son had the Eastender(steak pie) they were packed with tender meat, gravy or liquor sauce on the side to add to taste. I love gravy but you did not need it. Chips and mash were perfect but my word the pastry. So light, amazing. In fact we enjoyed it to the point, we both ordered a second pie on its own, it was unnecessary but when you love a pie and don’t know when you will be back…..

                                                      Wonderful experience... super friendly and accommodating even though we were early... food was awesome with really packed pies 😀 good value for the food, drinks a little pricey but central London so shouldn’t be surprised!! Make sure you drop by and check out the awesome pies and lovely staff...

                                                      We loved this place. Posh pies indeed, in a little quiet street just around the corner from St Paul's. A pretty small place, with a few tables and high bar tables. The staff were extremely attentive. it's like a family restaurant, and you're seeing people you've known for ages only you don't know them. It's very welcoming. The food is really good English classics, not too much choice so easy. Our meal with the share of Prosecco was affordable. A lovely evening.

                                                      Had a fantastic evening. The beer garden was very well socially distanced, which made it relaxing and easy to speak with the other people at the table. The pies were good and we were happy about prices. We were well protected from the rain by umbrellas and when it got colder the waiters brought us warm pillows which were very nice. Would recommend. At the moment they don’t have a dessert menu.

                                                      Very good secluded beer garden in there inner garden, protected from traffic. Very good menu of pies and snacks. Unfortunately we found out that kitchen is limited to snacks only over weekend, however white baits and chips with plenty of good old Guinness saved the day. Definitely recommend to try their snacks. And definitely will came back later to try the pies.

                                                      Nice outdoor area, pie choices were very limited I understand because of Covid which is understandable, just a shame that wasn't advised prior to attendance.

                                                      Thanks for your feedback Ajay. We too are frustrated by our small menu, but after throwing a kitchen full of stock away 3 times last year, we're trying to be cautious about over-delivering before real demand can be understood. We are expanding the menu on May 18th to include some old favourites + more innovative dishes to come after the final June threshold. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

                                                      Really great spot. Spacious courtyard, but not at all cold and really safe. Great prices for the portion size of food. A nice place for dinner and drinks.

                                                      A very nice pub in a pretty setting. However, none of the waiters that served us was wearing a mask and for this reason I wouldn't recommend it.

                                                      Thank you for your feedback Mari. We have been following the government guidelines for out door trading very closely, but I appreciate that you would have felt more comfortable if our wait-staff wore face masks. Since reading your review, we have all being wearing face coverings and will continue to do so until at least 21 June. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

                                                      Food here was very nice. The atmosphere in the courtyard was good. Service was excellent, made even better by the staff bringing us hot pillows. Cocktails are very very small but the pinot is lovely and great value.
