Description: Right in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter, this is a great place to recharge your batteries after browsing the many great shops in this part of town.

If you want to stuff a well made pie in your face and do it in cool, modernist style, then this pared down canteen style pie shop in the Northern Quarter will definitely do the trick.

Pieminister is newly opened and is already doing a roaring trade with its mix of well made and quirkily titled pot pies, served with a range of tasty additions including the obvious mushy peas and mash.

The drink selection is limited but let’s face it the main purpose here is to focus on the pies rather than the pints. The retro wood and metal school chairs smack of 1950s canteens but the food is every bit 2014. Friendly staff too. It’s not a huge gaff so it does get busy quick. Affordable, fun and tasty.

Who'd have thought the humble pie could be so delicious. Being a bit of a Sherlock Holmes fan I went for the Deerstalker pie with mash and mushy peas. What can one say except it was fantastic, nice bite sized chunks of venison, the bacon flavoured was subtle and the lentils added a nice texture to the pie. Overall a good value culinary experience which I'll repeat.

My friend and I decided to give Pieminster a try last week, had never been before and am a little bored of everywhere in the NQ. It was a mid-week lunchtime so it was pretty empty, so there wasn't much atmosphere but the food was lovely. Portions were massive and the staff were friendly. The only down point was the limited drinks menu but overall it was a very pleasant experience and I shall be returning!

Great comfort food. I had just flown into Manchester for 9 hours on a plane eating only plane food.... This was SO good! Best pot pie I've ever had. I had a chicken with herb and added mashed potatoes and gravy. If I go back to Manchester I would head to Pieminister!

Simple, good quality food at a very reasonable price.

Very informal place to eat but modern, clean and comfortable at the same time.

A pie (plenty to choose from) costs about £4.50 and you can add sides to it but I took the option of upgrading to the 'mothership' for £7.95 to get the pie, mash potatoes and mushy peas. A hell of a feed and fantastic quality.

Desserts were also good costing £2-£3 and drinks were very reasonable.

I can't wait to revisit this place and would thoroughly recommend :-)
