ROYAL PIES ™
Our pies and pasties are handmade and feature our own flaky, buttery pastry
Steak and Ale Pie: All-natural beef, ale, carrots, and herbs 7.95

*Baking Your Pie at Home or Work: All of our hot pies and pasties are available fully baked and chilled. They are as delicious when heated at home as they are when they come out of our oven. Simply preheat your oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees, place your Royal Pie on a cookie sheet or rack, uncovered, and bake from 20 to 40 minutes (times will vary by oven). The center of the pie should be piping hot (165 degrees internal temperature). Frozen, unthawed pies will take longer to heat.
