Stuart and Leanne Doyle are renowned for making some of the best pies in Australia. And, while they may have received a gold award in the Great Aussie Pie-Making Competition, they also received a number of sliver and bronze for the other categories.
The best pies found along Brand Highway outside Dongara!
They have been approached by a number of people to mass produce their pies, however the consensus with the staff is that Leanne and Stuart prefer to keep the pies 'in-house'. And, I tend to agree with their vision because some great things should remain right here in Western Australia.
I found the lamb pie fairly rich in flavour. I believe I tasted a hint of mint in it, however one bite was just not enough. I would definitely need to purchase another one to make sure - of course.
All in all, the pies we purchased came from a champion stock of award winning pies. Outside of the fact that one was not enough, the family was extremely satisfied with my dinner selection.
The Caltex along Brand Highway is the only place you can purchase Doyle's Pies. I would definitely recommend that you put this place on your list of stops on your next trip north of Perth. If there is one lesson you can learn from my mistake - ONE is not enough.
