FOR PAS­TRY PURISTS The skinny pie at Square Pie, Birm­ing­ham

With a short­crust pas­try top but no base, this lean op­tion con­tains 50% less fat than Square Pie’s usual dishes and has less than 550 calo­ries. Per­fect with sweet potato mash.

FOR AD­VEN­TUR­OUS TASTE BUDS Malaysian chicken pie at Pie & Ale, Manch­ester

These pie masters do keep the pas­try lid on top, but they bal­ance things out by pack­ing their bakes with nu­tri­tious pro­tein-rich fill­ings.

FOR FILL­ING FANS Roots Manoova at Piem­i­nis­ter, Bris­tol

Veg­gie pies with­out pas­try: more fun than they sound. This gluten-free pie pairs roasted veg with a quinoa hot pot. Get a side of peas with chilli. Some (and we mean us) like it hot.

FOR DIS­CERN­ING VE­GANS Mush­room and pep­per bake at The Pie Maker, Ed­in­burgh

With a ded­i­cated se­lec­tion of ve­gan and veg­e­tar­ian op­tions, this place is a must for plant-palates. Fra­grant spices add a real kick to this veg-packed pie.

FOR SOME­THING FISHY Baby fish pie at Bat­tersea Pie Sta­tion, Lon­don

When you fancy a light bite, these pie con­nois­seurs serve up small pas­tryen­cased treats filled with fresh, nu­tri­tious fill­ings such as cod, prawn and sal­mon. Quite a catch.
