At an average of £10 for a dish you won't leave hungry! There is a great selection of pies and plenty of choice for vegetarians and vegans. I had the cheese pie and it was huge. It did say onion marmalade but was mixed with leeks instead. The pies come with a generous portion of mash and gravy. The place... More

Our waitress (Rebecca) was fab, very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The pies are absolutely delicious along with their quirky presentation! Really, really yummy and I will... More

Although visited on a Monday which is obviously not a big night out in Manchester, it was a nice surprise to find this open. Had a traditional Steak & Ales Pie, Mash with minted peas and sumptuous gravy. (They had vegetable gravy for vegans as well) The pie was tasty, full of prime cut meat and veg. The pastry was...

Bit slow service but the food when it came was top notch. Had the 3 cheese and red onion marmalade pie that was fantastic. Good mash and excellent gravy. Mushy peas were grand too. Good size portions for a reasonable price. Good selection of drinks. Good establishment
