Feast your pies on this at The Dandy Lion!

Not pie in the sky

The Dandy Lion pub in Lincoln continues to roar with some new food occu-pieing the menu and launching on Deliveroo.

The pub on Newland opened in May 2018 and owner Adam Kay now partnered with Pieminister, a Bristol-based pie making and retail business.

The Lincolnite went to try the new pie menu and crust us it was good!

The new pie menu, which runs alongside the regular menu, has six pies to choose from including vegetarian and vegan.

A pie with one side and gravy is £8.95 and for an extra £1 an extra side can be added, including mash, minty mushy peas, skinny fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings and a side salad.

A ‘Mothership’ can also be ordered for £10.95 – pie, mash, peas, gravy, cheddar and crispy shallots.

This Sunday, September 30 will see the launch of the new Sunday Best pie, which will be accompanied with Yorkshire pudding, carrot and swede mash, baby roast potatoes, stuffing balls, pigs in blanket, crackling and gravy for £10.95.

The pie menu runs from 12pm-9pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm-6pm on Sundays, but the regular menu including burgers, pizza and various sharing platters and a specific vegan menu are also available.

There will also be a special Christmas pie menu launched in November.

Owner Adam Kay told The Lincolnite: “It gives us another USP at the pub. It has started well and I hope it continues. It is an additional part of our evolving pub.”

Deliveroo and other changes

Tying in with this, The Dandy Lion launched on Deliveroo last Saturday (September 22) as part of the partnership, but these are not the only changes.

A new drinks menu will launch in the next few weeks to introduce new global gins and spirits to tie in with the Dandy Lion theme.
