Eating ‘GF’ just got better

Jun 16 2016

Why?  Because we’ve created 100% gluten free versions of two of your favourite pies.

We’ve spent the best part of a year rolling, mixing, tasting and baking to create Gluten Free Moo and Heidi pies.  And proof that they taste just as great as their non-GF counterparts, they both triumphed in the 2016 British Pie Awards. Taking first place in the Free From Class, the Gluten Free Heidi was crowned Class Champion, making it officially the best gluten free pie in the UK. The Gluten Free Moo was placed in the top three ‘Free From’ pies in Britain, winning a Gold Medal and the ‘Highly Commended’ title.

We were determined that our gluten free pastry – which we make with soya and rice flour – would have the same golden, buttery lightness as our regular shortcrust recipe. So we tested them on some very lucky coeliac and non-coeliac pie fans who all unanimously agreed that our GF versions were just as delicious as our Classics.

Both pies are now available nationwide as part of our full gluten free menu in our Bristol (Broad Quay and Stokes Croft), Cardiff, Leeds and Nottingham restaurants.  With carefully created pre-pie nibbles, Hot Pots and salads as well as the two GF pies and sides, there’s plenty available for a gluten free feast.  There’s even a raspberry ripple ice cream pie for pudding.

You can also buy both pies – to cook at home – at some of the UK’s finest food markets and independent retailers, including London’s Borough Market, Bristol’s Tobacco factory Market, and Harrods’ famous food hall. And to have them delivered direct to your door; buy them through our online shop in boxes of 6 or 12.
