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.
Found this place by accident. A great find!! You must visit and i recommend the pulled pork pie and the Mac and cheese. Have to book though to not be disappointed l.
Excellent food, best pies in London. Friendly and helpful service, perfect for a family meal. Beef bourgenouin went down very well. Will definitely be coming back
Great boeuf bourguignon pie, smooth mash and a good serving of gravy, charming service and fantastic value - go for the pie and a pint deal.
Great comfort food on a chilly evening. Chicken and bacon pie a little salty but overall a nice meal. People watching in window was fun.
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!
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.
We have been regulars for 2 years and usually rate Putney Pies a 5. but sadly the service was not as good this time. Two of the pies were virtually cold inside, the pastry, as usual ,was very good. We waited a long time and were so hungry we did not bother to complain. Chips were great and were hot - they just seemed to get the timings wrong. The barman was alone and a bit stretched, he did his best, it was quite busy.
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
