The bottomless Manchester pie brunch with pigs in blankets and endless cocktails

Georgina Pellant Georgina Pellant - 12th April 2022

There’s a restaurant in Manchester doing a bottomless brunch with pies and we are completely here for it.

We’re talking about Pieminister, a happy resident of the Northern Quarter’s Church Street since 2013 and a long term favourite amongst Manchester‘s pie lovers.

Serving up award-winning pies for pushing on a decade here, today, the Bristol-based family of pie makers have two sites in the city, having opened a second on Deansgate in 2019.

Boasting over 50 gongs from The Great Taste Awards and a number of silver and gold wins at the British Pie Awards, whilst there are already many great reasons to visit, we think you’ll agree that a bottomless pie brunch gives pastry heads another welcome excuse.

We’re talking brunch pies. Brunch pies filled with all the good bits of an English breakfast, combined with all the good bits of, well, a classic pie.

Suffice to say, Pieminister isn’t messing about here.

Whether you’re a meat lover, a veggie, vegan, or flexitarian, there’s something to suit – with a selection of four brunch pies on the menu, reports The Hoot..


You’re looking at just £11.50 for a brunch pie on its own or £25 to include ninety minutes of bottomless drinks, with some great cocktail choices like Aperol spritz, mimosa and bloody marys sitting alongside fizz and beer.

All pies come topped with garlic confit-style potatoes, crispy kale and vine tomatoes, and are served with smoky baked beans on the side.

You can also add a stick of pigs in blankets, fried halloumi, or vegan sausages for another £2.

Brunch pie choices include the ‘Morning Glory,’ a free-range sausage and bacon pie with cheesy bechamel  sauce and a baked egg, and the veggie ‘Sunny Pie Up,, stuffed with rosemary vegetarian sausages, red onion, bechamel, and a baked egg.

If that’s not for you, there’s also the ‘Bangin’ Bean Skillet,’comprised of smoky baked beans, halloumi, and baked egg, and the the ‘Vegan Banger – which is essentially a vegan take on the first two, made with vegan sausage, cheeze and bechamel .
