The finest pies in the land declares Putney Pies, and we’re inclined to agree. Along Putney’s Putney High Road in London, this cavernous restaurant and bar serves excellent pies, hotpots and other British classics. Naturally, the obvious pairing with a pie is a pint of some exotic ale, and Putney Pies has you covered here with a selection of great beers on tap. This is British comfort food at its very best.

The British love pies. Frankly, it's hard to see why they haven’t caught on elsewhere – how can pastry and meat wrapped up together be anything but a winner? Regardless, Putney Pies in London’s Putney are devoted to the delicate pastry parcels beloved by the Brits. From their Putney High Road premises, they are bringing great comfort food and an excellent selection of ales and lagers to the city’s pie-eaters (one need not necessarily come from Wigan to be a pie-eater).
The dining room at Putney Pie is quintessentially London. Hidden inside the arches, the dining room is low-ceilinged, low-lit and intimate. Diners come for the pies but stay for the great beers and ales on tap, and the family friendly atmosphere which extends to a dedicated children’s menu. Putney’s Putney High Road is awash with places to grab a bite, so its a testament to Putney Pie’s success that they are pulling big crowds day and night. A reservation is a smart move as this place is regularly packed out.
Great food and amazing service. It's a must go for anybody that wants the true UK experience. The chicken pate is homemade and should not be missed.
I ate at Putney Pies on a Saturday lunch time, service was friendly and efficient. I had the steak pie, which was delicious, friends had the rabbit and the chicken pies which were also well received - as were all of the sides we ordered. I would recommend Putney Pies to anyone with even a passing interest in pies!
A very enjoyable meal with excellent and engaging service. The pies were well-presented and interesting with good flavours and textures. We will return with the rest of the family
Putney Pies is a must! Amazing and intensely delicious food with a wide choice of pies, in a charming, yet surprising venue. The staff are knowledgeable and very friendly.
Love Putney Pies - the food is fantastic and their range of wine and beers is great. But since moving to it's location across from Putney Bridge the atmosphere has been lost. It's too small, and whilst not 'formal' by any stretch of the imagination, it's not especially relaxing. It used to be a very informal, jolly and lively (but not too much) place to eat when it was situated on the Upper Richmond Road. It's a great shame that vibe has been lost.
This is a lovely place, delicious food & overall great service until the end when although we had paid the bill the waitress prompted us to leave as others were waiting for the table, that is what were were intending to do but to be told this was unnecessary and a spoiler to our experience as it was a birthday celebration. It made it seem that once we'd finished we were no longer wanted...ship them in & out as fast as possible. We had booked the table & did not know that there was a time limit for the table. We had only been there an hour, there were others at tables close by who were seated at the same time but were still there & there empty plates were still on the table. Maybe this was just bad luck for us but beware that booking a table may mean you are not able to stay much longer after you have finished eating.
The food at Putney Pies is generally very good. And I quite like the ambience and music down in the vault. However, the customer service here is very hit and miss. One of our servers is lovely and the next moment another one who is absolutely rude and indifferent. A bit of quality control is needed here. The restaurant's ownership is probably unaware that this is happening. It's a bit of a turn off to encounter people who are either unfriendly, unprofessional, or simply have a bad attitude. After all, I'm there to relax and enjoy a nice meal, not bump into someone who hates their job. I'm willing to give this place one more go, but if I encounter another bad server, I won't be back, simple as that.
Had been before and couldn't fault it so decided to take my friend for dinner at Putney Pies. Unfortunately a very different experience this time. The food was very slow coming and when it did it was cold and the vegetables raw , so it all got sent back. The waiter was to full of himself so didn't appreciate that either . When it all came came back it was so hot that it was almost impossible to eat for ages! Must add that the same happened to at least 2 other tables. Manager did apologise and took money of it but all a real shame as love the place.
Putney Pies is a real gem at the bottom of Putney High Street. The staff are welcoming and attentive, which adds to the fantastic atmosphere. The menu has a selection of incredible food and I had the Venison and Chorizo pie, which was amazing! All in all, a great experience.
Always a happy experience at Putney Pies. Great atmosphere both upstairs, in the restaurant and down in the vault which has the same menu and often live music after 10pm. Staff friendly and welcoming, food really good, interesting range of beers and nice wines.
Fantastic food, would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning. The smell of pastry in the air as you walk in gives you an idea of what is to come. The menu gives you a wide choice and when the food arrives we were not disappointed. Great choice of craft beers and wine to accompany as well. We were sat downstairs and the setting was very cool and the background music and buzz amongst the tables made for a great atmosphere. Well worth a visit!
Excellent staff! Brilliant food! Really cool location... what's not to love at Putney Pies? We were lucky enough to hear some excellent music on the night we were there, and I highly recommend checking out which nights you can hear it too
I went there today for lunch with two old friends, none of us had been there before. The food was really great and the staff were incredibly friendly. We had a tour of the whole place after the meal and it would be a great venue for an office party, or any kind of party really! The basement runs under the road and then out to the river, it must be amazing in the summer. We would definitley all go again. Gail Colson
It was convenient to book online. We had a wonderful evening at Putney Pies! Delicious! I would definitely recommend Quandoo and Putney Pies. Do it!
Would recommend a visit to Putney Pies. The beef wellington starter and venison & chorizo pie were both very good. My friends chicken and mushroom pie was also very good. Nice beers on tap and a cool setting under the arches. Ask to sit downstairs.
Another enjoyable visit to Putney Pies! Had two speciality Christmas cocktails which were absolutely delicious - what a pity they are not available all year! Had a vension hotpot and a vension pie - both didn't disappoint!
Slightly disappointing 5th visit last night. We ordered the special starter of the day and after waiting 15 minutes or so, were told that they had run out - that was at 7.30pm! We then ordered two different starters to be told that one of them wasn't available either! My husband ordered a Guiness beer to drink - when it was brought it was the same replacement beer that he had had in November, but he wasn't told this when it was brought. Apparently they are still waiting for a delivery....Service was also incredibly slow, though we did receive a 'loyalty' discount off our bill at the end.
Have lived in Putney for a while & only just ventured down to Putney Pies, regret the delay now! - one of the best pies I've ever had! Would definitely recommend to family & friends
I love Putney Pies. Come here if you want to be fed well and leave FULL. The staff are friendly make you feel welcome no matter what. Great place for friends, food and drink!
I'd never eaten there before but Putney pies served up absolutely super dishes. Four of us went there - mainly for the cool sounds downstairs in the vault I admit but the food was incredible. We all ate different dishes and all agreed that they were the best pies we could remember eating. Staff are great and very helpful and the music as always very cool.
I've previously been to the Vault which is excellent and wanted to try the food this time before heading downstairs to see the live band. Unfortunately visiting between xmas and the new year there wasn't a band on and the vault was closed. The food was great and the service was friendly and personal and will definitely return. Only marked down due to the fact the Vault was closed and we weren't expecting that.
The atmosphere is very relaxed and welcoming. The pie was extremely good as well as the mash, I would of liked the ability to be able to swap the mash for another side however. There was a great selection of pies to cater to everyone which did make it difficult choosing what to order! The drink selection was good, especially the beer selection however it is a bit on the expensive side.
Once again Putney Pies live up to its friendly atmosphere and staff with a visit to the vault this time which leads out to the river thames sheer brilliant!!!!!
Lovely small restaurant with wooden panellng and a relaxed feel. The pies are full of flavour and cooked on the premises (no microwaving here). WIth a good range of cocktails (think salted caramel espresso martini) and beers (Bristol Hefe, Hiver and so on), this is a lovely venue. Apparently during the week, they also have live music downstairs.
We booked a table but when we arrived were seated directly next to a music speaker. We asked to be moved amd luckily they had another table available on this occasion. I had the shepherd's pie, it is fantastic with chunks of meat in it. It is really hot to start so give it a few minutes to cool and it's also huge, potentially two could share it.
Putney Pies has a great terrace right but the river. They offer a nice big drinks selection with a great food selection. Staff are super friendly and the music vibey in the evening.
If you love Pies, you'll love Putney Pies - truly delicious heartwarming food at very reasonable prices and in a very relaxed setting. Som nice beers too....
We booked online. When we arrived to Putney Pies, the welcome was excellent, the food was great and I believe the place is a must in London.
Food was good. Service downstairs in the vault was mixed. We'd not even sat down for two mins and they wanted to take our order. Food arrived promptly but then once we finished our mains they didn't ask if wanted dessert. We waited and waited in the end we asked for the bill and left. Another annoying thing, I've been a few times in the week and certain choices are never available I wish they'd mention that to begin with.
Another great dinner at Putney Pies. Fast, friendly service and high quality food and drink. Definitely recommend dinner here. The best pies in London hands down!
the food is great.people are nice and the atmosphere is cozy.really good for a winter day. If you don't have much time call in advance and order your meal, this way You don't get to wait long once you get there. Higlhy recommend. I've been here before and will continue to come.
It was lovely to come in from the pouring rain and dark and upon opening the door, the smell of steaming hot pies being cooked greeted you. Had the steak, ale and Stilton which was lovely; my husband had the venison hot pot - personally too meaty for me - I would have prefered it if it had more potato/pastry accommpanying it.
Excellent service, stands this restaurant out from other pie destinations. The food was good too - although perhaps more vegetarian pie options (there is only one) and maybe a vegetarian sausage option would see my review to a 6 out of 6. I will be back, especially to try one of the old school Dj nights in the vault.
Amazing pies - perfect crust, not soggy at all, moist but not overly wet filling, coming in great variety (rabbit, venison, steak and ale, etc). Very friendly service, great list of cocktails, cheesy music - perfect combination for a chilled Sunday lunch. We ended up staying 3 hours!
Apart from a mix up with when we had to leave the table (they didn't mention we only had until 9pm) it was a lovely meal and great setting. The staff moved us to another table once we finished our meal so we had somewhere to sit the whole night. Playlist could do with improving also!
Fantastic food, really great waiter, good drinks and cocktail menu. Very reasonably priced for quality. Very busy - definitely need to book a table. Two waiting staff quite stretched for the number of tables so long wait for plates to be cleared and puddings offered but initial service and food very quick. Thoroughly recommend!
A really good experience, the pies were excellent and the service was also. I woul thoroughly recommend Putney Pies and I will be going back again.
Execellent service, friendly atmosphere and delicious food! It was my second time going to Putney Pies and I will be sure to go back very soon!
Stunning venue and good food! I booked through Quandoo and they reserved me a table at the Ground Floor, I arrived I asked to be moved at the Basement. They were very nice and moved me downstairs. From there you can also go out and have a view on the Thames!
Lovely little find in Putney, amazing food, great service. Don't think I can eat pies anywhere else now!! Never had so much meat in a pie! Amazing starters too not that you need one with the size of the main course
This is my 3rd time here and i LOVE it! Great tasting pies, cool rustic venue and on a weekend great tunes are played downstairs in the vaults. Highly recommend, a great twist to a pie restaurant, awesome sides too!
Fantastic food, great pastry and spoilt for choice on menu. Really nice atmosphere, definitely book as it was very busy but totally worth it. Really lively bar downstairs, nice place to wait for your table. Will definitely be going back
Great restaurant. We booked it because it looked great from outside and we liked the menu. Super friendly welcome, great staff, brilliant food and there is a total surprise downstairs but that would be telling ...... highly recommended.
Always fantastic quality food, great service and wonderful atmosphere. Upstairs feels intimate and there is a real party atmosphere downstairs. The pies are to die for, generous servings and a flawless menu. We return on a regular basis.
This restaurant is consistently spot on. The Menu is great, and it is always well executed. Reliable service, although nothing to write home about. Good drink selection (read: good beers), and above all very good value. Local favourite.
Great atmosfear and amazing pies :) The staff is really friendly and extremely helpful. A great place to enjoy really good food. The decor is really interesting and improves the overall atmosfear. Will go back again soon.
The food and the wine were both great! We shared lots of starters - each one was lovely. Already planning our trip back in the winter so we can have a pie and a bottle of red!
Great selection on the menu and a variety of pies. Food always very tasty - although I must admit I can't get beyond my usual selection of the Steak and Ale pie. Service always very friendly.
Delicious pies. A perfect place to catch up with a nice relaxed atmosphere and music. The waiter was lovely, knew the menu back to front and let us sit and chat rather than hurry us out.
Food and service were excellent, very cosy atmosphere with some nice Christmas decorations. We had liver pate and quails eggs to start and then pie of the day snd fish pie which were very yummy.
