Formed in 2014 by school friends Chris Brumby and Jim Carnegie, the Australian duo found a gap in the UK market for high quality pies.  MYPIE are true innovators in the pie world, and the team are bringing their winter warmers to the John Lewis & Partners Roof!

Who ate all the pies? Choose from a line up of exciting flavours. Think mushroom and truffle oil – if one is looking for something decadent. Perhaps sweet potato, green chilli and feta is more your vibe. With so many delectable pies – you’ll want to try them all.

If you want something a little lighter, the small plates menu of scotch eggs and sausage rolls is perfect for festive nibbles. Even better with a hot gin cocktail, right?
