Yes, Pieminister!

An award-winning pie company is bringing its high quality offering to the Midlands, with the opening of a new Pieminister restaurant at New Oxford House on Waterloo Street in Birmingham.

The Duchy of Lancaster has agreed a long-term lease for 2,048 sq ft of ground floor and basement space to Pieminister from April 2017. 

Pieminister has been making ‘great British pies’ since 2003 and has already opened restaurants and cafés in Cardiff, Leeds, Nottingham, Bristol, Oxford and London. This is the company’s first restaurant in the Midlands and its new premises will be part of New Oxford House where other occupiers include the Michelin-starred Adams Restaurant which opened in 2015.

Offering a variety of pies, sides, cocktails and craft ales, Pieminister puts a contemporary twist on a traditional British favourite.

Commenting on the new lease, the Duchy’s Head of Urban Mike Andrews said: “Pieminister is the perfect complement to Adams Restaurant and firmly establishes New Oxford House as a place for dining. Birmingham’s financial and commercial district has seen a great deal of regeneration and investment in recent years and the addition of successful new companies to the area can only be of long-term benefit to this area of the city. We are very pleased that they have chosen New Oxford House as their first Midlands-based restaurant and wish them continued success in their new home.”

Jon Simon, Pieminister co-founder and MD, added: “New Oxford House is in a great part of the city and we are delighted to be bringing our famous pies to Birmingham. With a new menu and three summer special pies launching in Birmingham, we can’t wait to open our doors and welcome the people of Birmingham. Whether you’re after a quick lunch with friends, a weekend feast with the family, weekend brunch or a cocktail on a night out, we’ve got it covered.”

The new Pieminister restaurant will open its doors in mid-May.
