Stopped by here going through to Queenstown with family. We ordered pork belly and apple sauce pie, creamy chicken pie, ultimate peppered steak with mushrooms they were fantastic. Prices varies from $5-$7. Well worth the price, best pies I’ve had!

We tried the beef steak pie, pork & apple pie, lamb pie, salmon pie. Love the variety n the fact that it could be reheated n eaten at a later timing. I wouldn’t say it’s mind blowing my good but good pies at about 6NZD.

Stopped for lunch. Outstanding pies, with real meal and delicious flavours. The Chicken & mushroom was excellent. Nice coffee. Very busy but the staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a stop, highly recommend!

Several guides and drivers recommended Fairlie Bakehouse for the best pies in NZ and we agree! We sampled four varieties. Our very favorites were the peppered steak and the mince and cheese. Probably the best mince and cheese we’ve had! The smoked chicken and mushroom...More

I do remember there being a gluten free option. My son recently had a meatball, bourbon and mushroom pie which he said was gluten free. They do have a facebook page. Hope this helps. They are yummy.
