Celebrate National Pie Week by heading down to one of these locations and grabbing yourself a tasty treat:

• Bray's Cottage, various stockists across Norfolk

If you like pork pies, you'll want to get yourself down to one of Bray's Cotttage's stockists as soon as possible and try one of their fabulous creations. Made with locally sourced ingredients, the pies feature high quality pork reared in North Norfolk and a blend of herbs and spices that are encased in a hot water crust pastry which lends a biscuit-like quality to the snack. A range of flavours are available, including onion marmalade, chilli and chorizo, however no matter which option you go for, you won't find any jelly inside.

• Shelley's Pie and Mash Shop, Cromer

Considered one of the best places to eat in the country by Best of England, an independent online travel guide, Shelley's Pie and Mash Shop serves traditional London-style pie and mash alongside a selection of others with a more modern twist.
