IT'S time to reveal the shortlist in our search for Wirral’s best pies but which one is the tastiest and deserves to take the title?

After launching our new Best of 2023 competition in the Wirral Globe earlier this month, we wanted to know where to buy the best pies – sweet or savoury.

In our first Best of 2023 category we were looking at the best hair salons, barbers and independent stylists in the town.

This week, pies were the focus and after receiving dozens of nominations over the weekend we have shortlisted a top eight, who will battle it out to be named the best in Wirral.

But now we need your help to choose an overall Best For Pies winner from our top eight.

There are three ways to vote:

1. Search for the Best for Pies shortlist post on our Wirral Globe Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages and comment under the post with the name of your winner = 1 vote

2. Name your favourite in the comments section on this article via our website = 2 votes

3. Purchase a copy of this week’s Wirral Globe (April 26 edition) and fill in the entry form = 5 votes

(*NB For newspaper entries, email a screenshot of the completed entry form to – please note that only original copies will be accepted. More than one entry can be submitted per person but you will be asked to provide your own unique reference code for each entry to avoid duplication eg if your name is Smith you may wish to write Smith123 or HS21! as your code. You will need to provide a different code for each entry submitted. For full terms and conditions go to

Voting officially opens today, Thursday, and closes at midnight on Monday, May 1 and we will be announcing the winner next week.
