Pieminister Pies, Manchester

Pieminister on Church Street, on the Edge of Manchester’s Northern Quarter, over the road from Affleck’s Palace, is a pie shop that sells Pieminister pies.

Pieminister make and sell pies in their own (and other) pie outlets up and down the country, and in the pie section of my local Waitrose.

I’ve had their pies from my local Waitrose before… they are generally tasty pies (although I do find the pastry can be a little too chewy) and come in a range of interesting and classic flavours with funky names – such as ‘The Kate & Sidney’ ‘Chicken of Aragon’ the ‘Pietanic’ fish pie and the ‘Heidi’.


In the Pieminister on Church Street, on the Edge of Manchester’s Northern Quarter, over the road from Affleck’s Palace, I had two of their special seasonal pies: the ‘Three Kings Pie’ and a ‘Christingle Pie’.


You can buy sides individually or collectively as “The Mothership” - mash, gravy, minty mushy peas, grated cheddar cheese and crispy shallots. All tasty good but my one niggle would be to serve it all a little hotter.


Three Kings Pie – turkey, bacon & cranberry stuffing.


Christingle Pie – honey roast parsnip, cheddar cheese & chestnuts.



If you are a fan of pies, Pieminister on Church Street, on the Edge of Manchester’s Northern Quarter, over the road from Affleck’s Palace, who sell Pieminister pies are worth checking out… but I still prefer the nearby 'Pie & Ale' (see here).
