Following the major development of the brand new and thriving neighbourhood, Kampus, Little David Street is set to get a well-deserved makeover – starting with tasty new resident Great North Pie.
Founded an entire decade ago by husband and wife duo Neil and Sarah Broomfield, Great North Pie specialises in traditional pie and mash with a modern twist – serving up delicious classics that are paired with either a matching beer or glass of prosecco. Sounds like a Northerner’s dream.
Joining the likes of Nell’s, General Store and Pollen who have already taken up residence at Kampus, the new restaurant will mark a new era for Little David Street – a street that is often considered one of the few remaining cobbled streets in Manchester. Great North Pie is set to be the first of many new businesses to open up on the street, beginning its journey as a bustling, alfresco hang out, buzzing with bars, cafes, shops and restaurants.
Continuing with their classic menu that fans already know and love, guests will be able to devour pies filled with beef mince and ale gravy, roast chicken and ham, Lancashire cheese and onion and so much more.
Piemaker and owner Neil Broomfield said: “Since we started out making pies at home for farmers markets, we’ve always wanted a base in the city centre. We’d been looking for a while and as soon as we saw Kampus we knew it was the right place for us. It had to be somewhere intimate and cosy and Kampus really nails that laid back vibe.
“We’ll be keeping things simple, just great northern pies and mash, with loads of gravy, and a few beers. The Kampus gardens are one of the nicest places to come and sit in Manchester and with the mix of independent traders that are coming, it’ll be an amazing community to be part of.”
Adam Brady, HBD said: “Great North Pie is something of an institution when it comes to pie and mash and it’s amazing to welcome them to the Kampus community. They’re the first to sign up at Little David Street which will have cafes, bars and shops all spilling out onto the beautiful cobbles, giving it an almost European feel. It’s exciting to see how the Kampus neighbourhood is growing, whether you live here or not there’ll be something for everyone, and there’s lots more to come. There’s really going to be nowhere else like it in the city.”
