‘I queued up for 15 minutes for this pie for you, make sure you have it with mash and gravy ok!?’
Lord of the Pies, based in Stockport, is no stranger to a queue at Lunch Time.
I went for the British Beef & Blacksticks Blue – hands down the best pie I have ever had. Team with some steamed tenderstem broccoli, kale and gravy and you’ll be in pie heaven
They do a whole range of pies along with soups, ploughmans lunches, weekly specials and even pies for Weddings, instead of the cake..
Please note, this has now been changed to August 15th & 16th
If the announcement of Hello Kitty Live didn’t get you excited, then people of Manchester, get involved in this
Hello Kitty will be traveling to the Trafford Centre on 29th & 30th August. Expect photo ops and loads of cute stuff to buy along with the chance to get your nails done by Sophy Robson.
Last time I met Hello Kitty in person was at Selfridges in the Trafford Centre. This was in 2007 so judge the photo all you want. I’ll get a classier one next time round
See you there!
2015 is the year of the fried chicken – if you didn’t know already
I keep dreaming about fried chicken and Splendid Kitchen’s Fried Chicken dinner may have held those dreams off for at least a few days.
Brought to the table was a big white bowl with a sea of onion gravy surrounding a heap of well mashed potato, two boneless thighs of succulent fried chicken along with a corn on the cob. Unfortunately (and not on the menu) some naughty spring onions had found their way on top, but they were soon marched off.
We also enjoyed a Pimms cocktail sharer and used the cucumbers as some form of starter. If you think you’re ‘ard enough then go for some Pizza Fries too (Fries topped with their homemade pizza sauce, chorizo, pepperoni and cheese – I know right)

There wasn’t one thing I didn’t like about Tariff & Dale. Food was great, service was great, music was great, champagne was great and the air con was exceptional in the gross Manchester heat.
Try the Pork Nuggets, pulled pork inside a little breadcrumb house with crackling on the side
It’s no surprise that they have been shortlisted for Best Newcomer at this years Manchester Food & Drink Festival. You can vote for them and your other favourite Manchester bars and restaurants here.
They also have an impressive breakfast selection which I will be returning to try. Have a look at their food and drinks menu online
