Lovett Pies of BristolLovett pies of Bristol is set to close, a statement by the owners reads: It is with a heavy heart that Lovett Pies of Bristol announces it is to close. We have been serving up delicious pies to the people of Bristol, and it has been a privilege to be part of the city’s culinary landscape.

However, changing tastes and economic conditions have made it difficult for us to continue operating, and so we have taken the difficult decision to close our doors for good. We would like to thank all of our loyal customers for their support over the years, and we hope that they will enjoy our pies for many years to come. Thank you, and goodbye.

Lovett Pies have established a reputation for selling some of the freshest and tastiest pies out of their shop down at Cargo, at Wapping Wharf.

Lovett Pies Ltd

The brand was established back in 2011 by friends Phil Roseblade and Chris Parry, who met in 2007 while working at the Chequers pub in Bath. On 18 Mar 2016 the company was incorporated in to a limited company, about the same time as the Cargo shop opened, and was widely looked upon as being one of the tastiest places to grab a bite to eat down at Wapping Wharf, with pie fillings such as beef, ale and blue cheese and lamb, rosemary, garlic, potato and honey all going down a treat with customers.

Despite being hugely popular with Wapping Wharf regulars, Lovett Pies Ltd announced this week they will be permanently closing the shop today (Friday) to focus on the business’ wholesale operation, which they say is ‘thriving’.
