A firm which specialises in upmarket pies has announced it is opening a new café in central Manchester.

Bristol based firm Pieminister has lodged a planning application with the city council to turn a print shop on Deansgate into its next branch.

The café would be the firm’s second in the city as it already has a successful shop in the Northern Quarter.

The new site will have room to serve 20 customers on the ground floor and a large basement kitchen for outside catering.

The new restaurant will be close to the popular Albert’s Schloss, Dirty Martini and Rudy’s pizza restaurant.

Pieminister has 15 other branches across the UK, including Liverpool, Birmingham, Sheffield, and three restaurants in its home town.

Managing director and co-founder Jon Simon said: “We do a great business in the Northern Quarter and it’s gone from strength to strength. Manchester’s been a great city for us.”

The new site is in the Grade II-listed Royal London House and the new restaurant is due to open early next year.
