Ashton Gate Pie Wins National Award

Ashton Gate’s Sheep pie has won national acclaim after a football-mad fan rated it as the best he’d tasted travelling the country following his team.

Jonny Smith – not to be confused with the Bristol City youngster of the same name – is a Fulham fan who is testing pie offerings up and down the 92 Premier and Football League clubs.

The obsession has sparked a blog, in which he details his travels and all the pies he has eaten, which he then rates.
And Ashton Gate’s Sheep pie (lamb) comes out top of the pile from all those sampled so far.

Smith said: “I don’t really like lamb but the Sheep pie at Bristol City was absolutely superb. Ten of out ten!”

Retailing at £3.70, supporters can taste the Sheep pie again this weekend when City host Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship (3pm).

As always, season card PLUS holders receive 15 per cent discount on the concourses, while season card holders and Forever Bristol members get ten and five per cent off respectively.
