Nice Pie Tea Room

Since my Mum has been really poorly and had a huge operation recently, she's now at a point where we can go out and about again and she suggested we visit a little tea room she'd been to a couple of weeks before with my Nana. We drove off to a little place called Nice Pie in the heart of Leicestershire and it was tucked away down a beautiful english countryside lane with a stunning view over some hilly fields.

Nice Pie literally looks like a very long shed (originally a chicken barn!) and inside, it's decorated with country chic trinkets, old chesterfield sofas and mountains of homemade cakes, pies and savoury snacks. They had a brilliant range of drinks too like hot chocolates, coffees, soft drinks and of course tea! We sat in the corner on some awesome squishy chairs over looking the rest of the room and it was such a relaxed atmosphere, with indie music playing in the background and pleasant chit chat from the other customers. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and were clearly very fond of their tea room - it's always really nice to see people enjoying their jobs and it's something that I always finds impacts my opinion of a place a great deal. 

I had the biggest Bakewell Tart I've ever seen in my life and ended up having to bring half of it home because I couldn't manage the whole thing, but they were more than happy to bag it up for me to enjoy later. We also got James a lovely slab of chocolate dipped flapjack to bring home as unfortunately he was working and wasn't able to join us, but it didn't last long when he found it! Mum had a very fancy brownie topped with chocolate and marshmallows along with a yummy looking sausage roll. Unfortunately they didn't do veggie sausage rolls otherwise I'd have snapped one up but you can't have it all can you! The pies looked delicious and it was also impressive to see Jamie Oliver had visited the Nice Pie Tea Room and that they were the winners of the Great British Food Awards for 2017.

After we had something to eat, we paid up and I wandered over to see the animals. I'm always on the look out for animals in a place like this and I think it stems from when my Grandparents used to take my brother and I to animal farms when we were little...I loved feeding the goats and more than likely having the paper bag stolen and eaten at the same time! Nice Pie had a couple of awesome sheep and goats, along with some chickens and a magnificent peacock who kept showing off his tail feathers until I actually tried to take a photo. Safe to say, he mugged me right off!

It was such a lovely afternoon in a wonderful environment; I highly recommend stopping by if you're in the area and I'll pop the address below so it's easy for you to find:
