Sweet or savoury, pies have been around since the time of the ancient Egyptians – and it seems there’s nothing us Brits enjoy tucking into more!

Whether it’s a delicious steak and kidney pie with a melt in the mouth pastry lid or a delicate fish pie with fluffy mash potato topping; around 75 per cent of us enjoy a pie at least once a month – according to research from Jus-Rol – founder of British Pie Week (March 2-8).

And residents at Elmbridge Village in Cranleigh have been tucking into a few favourites of their own – served up at the village’s restaurant to pay homage to the perfect pie!

A selection of delicious home-made pies made it onto the menu with fillings including pheasant, game, chicken, leek and bacon and steak and kidney.

Residents with a sweeter tooth were also able to enjoy homemade Banoffee crumble.

According to the most common internet search results for what we Brits are looking at recipes for, Jus-Rol’s top 10 pies are:

  1. Cottage Pie
  2. Fish Pie
  3. Shepherd’s Pie
  4. Chicken & Leek Pie
  5. Chicken and Mushroom Pie
  6. Steak and Ale Pie
  7. Meat and Potato Pie
  8. Pork Pie
  9. Steak and Kidney Pie
  10. Corned Beef Pie

We’re looking forward to seeing more on the menu at Elmbridge Village soon.
