About Pieminister Nottingham
Located in a former Boots on Long Row, we’ve stripped the space back to transform it into the best spot in town to enjoy great pies served with craft ales, ciders, cocktails and music.
Nottingham is the city that turned our pie dream into a reality. It was during co-founder Jon Simon’s time as a student at NTU that he met his future business partner Tristan, the brother of fellow student (and now Jon’s wife) Romany. It’s great to be back in the town where we began!
Lovely meal ended with an escape room experience. Good fun all round
Lovely food and drinks, although the food could of been warmer but I noticed a lot of meals were waiting to be picked up for at least 5 minutes before they were took to the tables...Staff also could of been a little more friendly. I’d definitely return because the food and atmosphere were brilliant.
Food was delicious, service seemed rather slow. The wait between courses was quite long. Our orders were mixed up a bit, but the nice server sorted them for us. (There were 12 of us!) Great atmosphere still, food was lovely, staff friendly and helpful.
It seemed the restaurant had accepted more large group bookings than it could comfortably cope with all at the same time. The staff member who greeted us initially sent our group to the wrong table, having already sent another guest to a different area of the restaurant, so there was some confusion. It took a long time for any drinks to appear, and it was well over an hour before any of our food turned up, despite us having pre-ordered. Two other large groups arrived after us, were served, and left, before any of our food arrived. No team members came to offer an apology or explanation for this at any time, and no-one ever came to take another drink order even when we'd been sitting there with nothing for over an hour. When we went to find a team member to get an idea of likely food arrival time, it was inferred the delay was our fault for not having explicitly stated that we would have expected pre-ordered food to arrive within a reasonably prompt timeframe (as is the standard for pre-order bookings at every other restaurant we have ever used for a large group meal). The food itself, when it eventually arrived, tasted nice but some colleagues said their food was lukewarm. Also, one team member who was wandering around with a tray kept telling us she didn't work there whenever we tried to ask a question, which was frankly a bit odd. We chose PieMinister for our Christmas lunch having been impressed by a previous visit but sadly after this experience we are unlikely to visit again.
Absolutely amazing place to eat. Great food and great service. Will definitely be returning soon :)
Didn't read booking comments so had to move another table to accommodate our party with a wheelchair, then didn't give us menus as thought we'd preordered. Good night but service clearly very overstretched - had to flag someone down every time we needed something
Service was really really slow, and there seemed to be a lot of staff doing absolutely nothing. We were waiting with our cards in our hands (quite obviously) to pay the bill and the waiter we’d asked for the bill from walked past us at least three times during this. Then he just hovered at the bar area. Food is fantastic so we’ll always come back but staff, cmon!
We have scored our visit so low as this was our Christmas lunch and there was no Christmas atmosphere. The food wasn’t great either. The meaty sticks came without the Yorkshire puddings and these were only provided once we raised it with the staff. Also the pigs in blanket and the stuffing ball on the meaty stick was cremated. It was so chewy it was actually unpleasant to eat. Also one of your staff spilt a drink down my friend’s coat. Although he was apologetic and we accept accidents can happen overall our experience was not a positive one.
Great food as always
Absolutely appalled from our visit last night. Booked a table at 5pm for the Xmas menu, Walked in and said we had a booking, got laughed at and told to sit where we wanted. When we ordered you didn’t have the pie on the Xmas menu that we came for, I understand things go out of stock but it was a Monday, not busy and when you have bookings for the xmas menu you should have enough to fulfil that. Drinks didn’t come till 5.31 because there was nobody on the bar and prosecco was flat. Mains came before the starters and the mains weren’t right. The sticks didn’t have the Yorkshire puddings or cranberry sauce and when asked for the bits that were missing was told that you didn’t have any Yorkshire puddings and asked if we still wanted the cranberry sauce. The dessert fell off the plate when it was served to me and I caught it in my hand and was covered in ice cream, it said it was a mince pie Sunday but there was no mince pie just cheap hard vanilla Ice cream with some raisins on top, we didn’t finish it. This was meant to be a treat for my friend and I and it was nothing but a disaster.
The kitchen had run out of all but one of the kids meals but we weren’t informed of this until 10 minutes after we had ordered. It also took a long time to be given some crayons to entertain my son despite asking 3 times. There were other servers busy setting tables when there were clearly customers already seated who needed attending to.
The table wasn’t ready when we arrived, and it was super noisy we had to shout to each other to hear ourselves. Also, they wouldn’t accept a £50 note which was inconvenient since my parents only had £50 notes. Somebody else had to pay, even though the bill was over £50. The food was delicious, as always.
Food was beautiful and full of flavours. It is defiantly worth the money. Would defiantly go there again!
Quality fast food
Amazing food, never disappointed.
They had ran out of all the festive pies which was disappointing but the pie we had instead was amazing so made up for it! We’ve been to the Manchester one before and loved it and now we live this one just as much!
Restaurant was pretty much empty when we arrived at 6pm on a sunday food still managed to come out stone cold we sent it back but was offered no apology and just made to feel like we was the inconvenience
Pie and mash were awesome! We got quite warm as the lights are low on the tables but definitely visit again
All just right for a pre theatre meal. Service was particularly good, friendly and efficient.
The loaded cauli fries are incredible - what a plate of food! Value for money to the max and absolutely declicious. It’s such a joy to get to eat some real comfort food as a vegan. We love the place and I wish I knew sooner so I could book my work Xmas meal there. Next year for sure!
Will be visiting again.
Extremely good table service from crystal and from the lady managing the room escape rooms
