I’m a big fan of Urban Pie, it’s great to have an original food option when you’re in town looking for lunch. Sometimes a baguette from Greggs just doesn’t cut it when you’ve been shopping for hours, it’s nice to head to this chilled out cosy restaurant and get yourselves a perfect steak n’ kidney pie :)
Fantastic food at a fantastic price. Even better on a cold day.
Also, I’ve never experienced the vegetarian pies being out of stock (in reference to a previous review), and there is usually atleast 2 different vegetarian pies when I go there.
I've never considered the pie to be fast food. Lucky for the people of Birmingham, Urban Pie do.
Excellent, hearty pies with a rang of fillings served fast, with a whole bunch of sides. mash, mushy peas etc. All hot, all really nice.
Food is served on recyclable cardboard plates, so you don't have to feel bad about staff chained to a sink scrubbing dishes, or the environment. Which is lovely.
To get the full range of pies and sides, you need to get there early if you want to sample everything from the menu. The last of certain items can be a turn off for some people I guess, but it does mean you might try (and like) some things you didn't think you did.
Beer and cider is on the menu, so it has it's advantages over other places. Hooray for alcohol!
The location is great - right next to the Bullring, so you can take a break from shopping to people-watch from a great big window.
You'll probably need to like pies to like Urban Pie - but if you didn't, why would you go there?
At last a place where you can get a decent pie! To all the other Pie lovers out there....YOU HAVE TO COME HERE! Urban Pie is actually awsome, its tastes great, you get a nice chat and a smile when you order and you can sit down and relax inside or out and its best washed down with a beer which they also serve...It doesn't get much better than that.
After reading most of the reviews for the Urban Pie. The majority are positive, but i have to disagree, after trying this place i was deeply disappointed. Since i worked in the busiest retailer on new street (Primark) at the time i decide to try something different for lunch after an active day of work. As i arrived there was a good hand full of people as well as Otis from channel 5 the Gadget show. So i ordered and was shocked at how expensive it was. I sat outside which was nice but the taste was bland, pastry awful and portion small leaving me hungry.
I stayed in Birmingham for 2days, I ate a pie a day:P
It was not only good but also nutrious instead of meals
especially breakfast and lunch when i was busy.
If I go there next time, I want to try another taste's pie with beer:))
I think the best thing about Qype is that you discover things you never knew. Half price pies was one of them! Good times!
My favourite pie is the chicken and asparagus, with of course, mash and gravy. The perfect meal to warm you up on a winters day (soon to be evenings with this new revelation!)

The best pies in Town - what more can I say? Forget about those Pukka Pies.....these are real, tasty and fresh.
Great meal, cheaper after 5pm and the place is chic with a good eco-sense (recyclable everything etc).
After 5pm you get half price, tasty, scrumptious pies! Can life be any better at 5pm? I think not! Really friendly staff and very quick service with tasty food. This is a must go for any pie lovers who want to try something a bit different to the normally cramped Starbucks or coffee house that serves unoriginal and predictable panini.

One of the few things that will bring me anywhere near the Bull Ring at 5:30pm is the wonderful Urban Pie. Serving a mouth-watering array of deep-filled pies plus mash, vegetables and gravy, Urban Pie is a must-visit for anyone who fancies a filling meal to either eat in or take away.
There are vegetarian options available, as well as one or two sweet pies if the mood takes you. Every day after 5:30, all the pies are reduced to half price, making the place all the more tempting.
They serve a small selection of beers and wines, as well as cold juices, smoothies and milkshakes, and hot teas and coffee. The staff are all very friendly and talkative, making every trip to the 'Pie an enjoyable one.
You can get delicious deep filled Urban Pie’s for HALF PRICE after 5pm!

What a great offer to warm you up on the chilly winter nights after a spot of Christmas shopping!
This is a really nice little store for which make nice savory foods. The pies there are very tasty, they do savory as well as sweet pies. All which are just as good as the other. The best time to go is Christmas, the atmosphere in Birmingham city center is really nice and cosy, the lights light up the streets. A grate place to catch a quick, tasty bite.
I crawled into the place with a stinking hangover and in dire need of carbs. I loved it!
The wee pies are all piping hot and really tasty. i believe this is owned by the same person as the one in Brindley Place - this one is far superior as the service is faster, the decor is nicer and it’s right in the middle of the bull ring, stagger there as soon as you can!
A top little food place that offers tasty traditional food at a reasonable rate. At the moment you can find vouchers online at their webstie for BOGOF deals, meaning even greater value!
There is always a good seletion of pies which are always fresh and tasty. There is a great selection of other grub to go with your pie, including the obvious mash and gravy. Soft drinks and selected alcohol is also available.
The staff here are really friendly and make the place even better!
Urban Pie is the perfect place to go after work on a freezing cold evening. Half price at that time as well (its open until 8 weekdays). Friendly staff, yummy pies, it also sells beer/wine (bottles/cans) and you get an awesome pie box which also acts as your plate when you fold the sides down. The gravy is also great (and free!) There are tall wooden tables for seating and they also have toilet facilities. Once you have a pie though you definately will want to go back!
