The Hull Pie is back in town. Below are just some of the delights on the menu for city centre workers and visitors to tuck into.

The popular pie shop has been a firm favourite for foodies since first opening its doors down Trinity House Lane back in November 2011. Since then, they have expanded to Newland Avenue and Cottingham Road, regularly popping up at local events and festivals, and even catering at wedding parties.

We spoke to Supervisor, William George Wheatley, to find out more about the tasty treats on offer at the brand new shop near Princes Quay.

“Owner, Matt Cunnah, chose the unique spot because of its amazing location,” enthuses William. “He has a huge love for Hull and its heritage, so the listed building seemed like a natural fit.”

The unit overlooks the beautiful Queen Victoria Square, which has also currently undergone a lot of exciting changes.

“I’ve always preferred this part of town,” William tells us. “You have the main high street stores and can easily get to the independent places in Old Town. I think Princes Quay will be a huge success once they finish the refurb.”

The new Pie will serve customer favourites steak and red wine, and chicken and stuffing pies. You’ll also find their latest scrumptious creations, such as steak and chorizo; Greek lamb; chicken, bacon and leek; and meat-free melanzane parmigiana.

We recommend you accompany your pie with some classic British sides, such as mushy peas, glazed carrots, farmhouse mash, and salt and pepper sprinkled new potatoes. And don’t forget to top it all off with their distinctive meaty sauce.

For vegetarians, there is the flavoursome onion and herb gravy. Opt for a cauliflower and broccoli cheese pastry parcel, or vegan-friendly Moroccan spiced vegetable and falafel.

“We also serve homemade speciality sandwiches for those looking for something other than a pie,” adds William.

The humongous sandwiches are just £3.75 and jam-packed with glorious fillings. Choose from a Bungle’s Bite with roasted peppers, hummus and mature cheddar, The Spaniard with chorizo, peppers, rocket and olive oil, or a Sweet Chilli chicken snack.

Meanwhile, fill up on their much-loved signature sausage rolls, baked daily with a different delectable twist every time.

“Today’s special is ham and cheese, but we change up the ingredients frequently, so be sure to pop in and see what we have on offer,” says William. “Plus, if you’re still hungry, we have an array of scrummy sweet treats, including our famous brownies, rocky roads and flapjacks.”

Wash it all down with a freshly squeezed juice, a cup of locally roasted Blending Room coffee, or a good old Yorkshire Tea.

“I’ve worked at The Hull Pie for over three years now,” William tells us. “I’ve been in all of the shops, even at the bakery, festivals and all sorts of events. I’m really looking forward to what’s next for the eatery.”

Open 10am until 5pm weekdays and 11am until 6pm on weekends, The Hull Pie’s new shop can be found outside Princes Quay, opposite Queen Victoria Square.
