First decision made, it's a Pie day! Next decision, what filling? If only it was already #thesurreyfoodfestival2020 and we could pop over to 100% vegetarian food truck @vegpieella and select one of their home made pies (with mash and gravy of course).
Which would you choose? 
1: Guiness and wild mushroom. 
2: Root Vegetable. 
3: Creamy Leak. 
4: Spinach  and Goats Cheese
