A dinner staple since way, way back into the 12th Century, pies are a loveable feat for Birmingham bars and boozers. From handmade ale sauces and locally sourced cuts to the flakiest in pastry toppings, we couldn't help but drool-over, we mean discover, some of the best in the city. Check out our recommendations for some of the best pies in Birmingham and get your chops around one tasty British treat.

They may boast one of, if not the best cocktail menu's in Birmingham, but there's another treat that this Victorian boozer has for eager punters. Boasting gourmet pies the likes of butternut squash and feta cheese, The Jekyll put just as much effort into their pies as they do their cocktails. Oh, and don't tell anyone we told you this, but these pastry laden goodies come in at a sweet £10 with a pint of ale from 5pm on Monday nights.
They're a fully fledged steak and ale house dangnabbit, if the New Inn don't know pies, then we certainly don't know nightlife. Boasting an ever changing roster of fillings, the pies at Birmingham's New Inn are a mouth watering meal of yum. Boasting an award winning selection of meats alongside some sweet Midlands ales, the New Inn have got us pie-ning for their wholesome fare from as little as £9.50 with mash.
This is one heck of a pretty place to try pie. Not only are their interiors decorated with a style of home-spun kitsch, but so are their pies. From a braised beef and Stilton pie at £13.50 with mash and vegetables to their roast winter squash pie, The Village boast some of the best in home-made Autumn style fare all year round. Bag a plot by one of their roaring fireplaces and tuck into this favoured fare.
While The Plough boast an ever changing pie menu, there's one pie that remains a staple in this charming retreat. Boasting one of the best shepherd's pie's in Birmingham and weighing in at a rather nice £12.50 with cave aged cheddar mash, this is set to be one of the most bespoke shepherd's pies that has ever passed your lips in an enviroment of vintage wares and humble charm.
They may be one of the oldest pubs on the block and might not necessarily boast the lengthiest of menu's, but if you're looking for some pocket friendly fare in a charming enviroment, then The Old Crown is your place for pie. With their beef and stilton pie coming in at a rather tasty £6.95, you wont be breaking any banks, but The Old Crown will be breaking your pie-lovin' heart with their home-made chow.
Whilst a champagne bar might not be your first inclination for pie in Birmingham, we suggest you give this sky high plot a whirl. Not only boasting 360 degree views of the city, the steakhouse restaurant at Marco Pierre White's in The Cube also boasts a top notch selection of baked pies. From their fish pie at £13.75 to their steak and ale pie at £14.25, this is high class chow disguised as a pie.
