Our customers wanted...
We asked our customers what they wanted in a perfect Pub Pie, a brave question when everyone has their own opinion… but we needed to get it right!
The Pie needs to stand high and substantial on the plate and must look visually appealing.
The different fillings need to be authentic and true to traditional British flavours.
They need to be individually wrapped and the pie must be identifiable.
The Pub Pies need to be full of high quality British meat and ingredients.
The Pies need to be delivered to me frozen so that I can "defrost and use" depending on levels of trade.
The quality of the Pie has to command a premium price on our menu, to maximise profits.
Golden shortcrust pastry not too thin or thick, our guests don’t want to pay for loads of pastry!
Not too much gravy, our customers like meat not gravy, we can add that!
The Pies need to be freshly made to order, I need the maximum shelf-life.
They need to look handmade and appealing to the eye, we don’t want factory Pies!
The Pie needs to re-heat quickly and look perfect, some of our customers won’t wait.
There has to be a full range to provide variety and interest for our customers.
