I love pie and I love craft beer. Combined, they warm the coldest of winters. Luckily for me, Manchester does them both well.
This cosy bar serves pies provided by Pieminister, a Bristolian company whose simple yet delicious pies have become nationally famed in recent years. Served with sides of peas and mash, this is the ultimate comfort food.
Their selection of ale is perhaps even more impressive. Offering an extensive range of European bottled beer and a number of more local choices on tap, they cater for all tastes. If you can’t decide, the knowledgeable staff are always happy to provide a recommendation.
Located in the trendy suburb of Chorlton, this popular spot attracts an arty crowd, and is also known locally as a lesbian hotspot (though everyone is welcome!). The outside area, complete with blankets, is an ideal place to sip on a beer and watch the world go by.
