“"The idea of Pie & Vinyl is simple, combining our love and passion for music with one of England’s favourite old fashioned comfort foods in a stylish cosy location in Castle road, Southsea. Pie & Vinyl invite all of our brothers and sisters who currently inhabit this historically significant, fashionably vibrant culturally exciting city, to explore, enjoy and revel in this unique experience. We are proud to live in Southsea and we want to support all local like minded businesses. We’ll be offering great teas produced in Portsmouth, pies from Southsea as well as offering a chance for local bands and artists to showcase their work. Even the furniture has been sourced from the Portsmouth and Southsea area."”
