Nothing can beat a massive hot pie during these cold, dark days and nights...
Great North Pie Co.
Creators and bakers of some of the best pies in the land, the Great North Pie Company now offer delivery of their wonderful pastry parcels, which are all baked fresh and delivered in chilled packaging to your castle. You can get 4 Pies for £16 or 8 for £30. They also offer up a Click & Collect service from their bakery door in Wilsmlow if you live close. Pie wise, they’ve got a lovely bit of Spinach & Cheese, Cheese & Onion, Roast Chicken & Ham or Swaledale Beef & Onion.
Pieminister proudly claim that all of their pies are made in-house using the finest, freshest ingredients – and the second your teeth break through that pastry and the hot filling hits your tongue – you just know you’re tucking into a quality pie. Available on Deliveroo, there’s an impressive selection of pies available, including vegan and gluten free options aplenty. Personally I’ll always go for their ‘Moo & Blue’ beef and blue cheese one – and ALWAYS go ‘Mothership’.
For the measly sum of 7 British Pounds you can get yourself a MASSIVE pie delivered directly to your door from this top-notch butty shop in Royton. They’re big enough to feed 4 people and there’s a choice of Cottage Pie, Meat & Potato, Cheese & Onion and a brilliant Chicken Curry Pie. Delivery will be FREE in and around Oldham, but if you’re further out – it’ll be an extra couple of quid. Go for the Cheese & Onion – it’s outstanding.

Pie & Ale
The excellent Pie & Ale, hidden away just off Lever Street in the Northern Quarter, have just launched a deliver service on Uber Eats – meaning you can get their pies anytime – straight to your front door. As you’d expect, the selection on offer is excellent, with the likes of Venison & Guinness (£12.95), Gammon & Cheddar (£11.95), Chicken Tikka Masala (£11.95) and a vegan Beetroot & Spinach Dahl (£10.95) really shining through. There’s also a selection of ‘Light Bites’ and Sides on offer too.
Some sweet-sweet pies now in the form of the truly delectable Portuguese custard tarts – Pastel de Nata. These little buggers are proper fit – so there’s no better treat to get delivered to your house than these. Just Natas do exactly what they say – Natas. You can order them in a box of 3 (£5), 6 (£10) or 16 (£28).
Kingfisher Fish & Chips
So this one is applicable to ANY chippy in your area that does delivery, but I’ll use the brilliant Kingfisher in the Northern Quarter as an example. You see, every single chippy in the world will offer up a range of pies, which typically go perfect alongside a massive mound of chips and about 2 litres of gravy. Personally, it’s all about the Holland’s Meat & Potato Pie – a true Northern classic.
