There’s a lot of meat when it comes to pie puns and we do love dishing out a pun at Squaremeal. We also love pie. So, to celebrate British Pie Week 2017, we've rounded up our favourite purveyors of the pastry- (or potato-) topped wonder. Read on to see our picks.

The apple pie at Chicken Shop (branches across London) is brought to your table in a steaming dish and served in a generous dollop, just like you’d do at home. They ask if you’d like cream or ice cream with it, and there's no judgement from the staff if you shiftily say, "both?".
The fish pie at Covent Garden veteran J Sheekey (above) comes with a ridiculous amount of cream and butter, but in our book that makes it even more delicious
Life of pie
Paternoster Chop House in the City has created a special pie menu for the occasion that will see you through from savoury to sweet. Choose from steak and oyster, rabbit, chicken and mushroom or apple and blackberry. Or, just go for all of them – we won't judge.
Pretty pie for a pudding guy
If you prefer a suet pudding to a pie, then head to classic British restaurant Rules in Covent Garden, for its steamed steak-and-kidney suet pudding
Pie in the sky
If you're in Canary Wharf, The Parlour serves up a piping-hot fish pie topped with a king prawn, which is sure to cure any post-work drinks hangover
