One thing I love about travelling is discovering that particular country’s delicacy. I love the traditional hearty meals from little restaurants tucked down side streets. In the UK there seems to be a disappearance of traditional grub, so Lord of the Pies is very much a place I would love to discover if I was not a local.
Away from the main shopping streets of Stockport just near the old market place is this fine little eatery with a great mix of big meaty pies and amazing luscious cakes. The shop has only been open since late 2012, but has established itself as a great little diner. The owner is an award winning chef for his pies and with flavours like confit pork with Bury black pudding, the Stockport Pie and the award winning local reared beef with roast chestnut mushrooms and real ale who could not be drooling while looking at the offers board. Vegetarian pies are also available. There are also meal deals where you can have mash, mushy peas and gravy with your pie for around £ 4. I tell you it is a perfect amount of food and I walk out stuffed!
The shop is quite small but has seating for around 10-12 people, but you are very welcome to take away.
