Great place with Tasty Vegan options - Edit

Great place with a great atmosphere. Handy to grab some vegan food before a night out in the Northern Quarter. I had the Leek and mushroom pie with mash and its was nice to have a choice of pies on the menu suitable for vegans. Wide range of vegan beers and wines. Staff were great.

Pros: Atmosphere, Staff, Pies

Vegan heaven - Edit

We made a special trip to Pie & Ale and were not disappointed! There were tons of clearly labelled vegan options for a restaurant that serves meat. The staff actually ask if you want your meal to be vegan when you order a labelled dish.
The white bean, butternut squash and kale pie with mash and mushy peas was heavenly; the portion sizes are HUGE though - I couldn't finish it all!
I will definitely be back to try one of the lighter meals so I have room for the apple pie ☺️

Pros: TONS of vegan options, really helpful, friendly staff, delicious food

Cons: Massive portion sizes (you'll be gutted if you can

Good pies! - Edit

Pie and Ale is, unsurprisingly, a good place for a pie. When I first visited in 2014 there was only one vegan pie on the menu, but in July 2016 that was up to three: dahl, leek and mushroom, and bean and kale. I had the leek and mushroom, which was a little light on mushrooms, but was really tasty. They serve it with vegan gravy and mash, both of which are good. The pastry on the pie is excellent! There's also a vegan dessert pie if you want to double up. I've never seen any vegan wines labelled there.

It's a nice place to visit with omni friends or even just vegan pie-lovers. It has a cosy atmosphere and a good bar.

Pros: Three vegan pie options

limited but very good - Edit

has three vegan pie options as well as two vegetarian. we had the white bean, squash and kale which was fantastic, really tasty and filling (better with mash than wedges IMO). Staff were also able to advise about some vegan ales.

Good food and nice atmosphere - Edit

I had a lentil shepards pie and it was really nice. There are only two more options for vegans though (if I counted it right) but I guess it's good enough for a nice snack.
The staff and atmosphere was great there.

So Tasty - Edit

There really isn't much vegan choice, or veggie really, but that is the only negative. The vegan dal pie is amazing, the staff are exceptional and the place is really nice. It's a great option for eating with omni friends.
