Welcome to Selseys very own hand made artisan Pie Company “Umble pies”!
Historically to eat humble pie, Humble pie, or Umble pie, is based on the medieval European dish consisting of scraps of the master's food baked into a pie. Chef Thomas' meat pies in comparison to those times are delicious with a generous portion of sumptuous ingredients.
He and his wife created Umble from a conversation about making simple honest tasty traditional British food something we all grew up with but sadly lost in today’s fast moving life styles.
Chef Thomas proudly states "At the heart of our pies is fresh, excellent quality, locally sourced ingredients. The pastry is something of a secret, a perfect pie crust, soft and crumbly and is certainly the best around, “no puff pastry here”!"
The chicken pies are made from whole freshly roasted chickens giving a truly full flavour, creating a sumptuous sauce from from the bones. Chicken n leek is one of our best sellers.
Their steak pies are made from generous portions of beef shin, fresh vegetables and real ale for our famous 'Beef n Ale pie'.
The vegetarian favourite of cheesy leek n vegetable pie topped with sweet and white roasted potato cubes sprinkled with black pepper and home grown chives, are a gastronomic delight for all.
This is just a small selection to wet your appetite, there are over a dozen different flavoured pies to sample.
The pies come in four sizes, individual good sized single pie. Medium, great for two to share. Large, family sized pie with four generous portions and a family extra-large pie.
All pies are freshly made to order and free delivery is offered in Selsey.
