Award-winning pie maker Pieminister is preparing to open a new restaurant in Liverpool city centre.
The city was last year reported to be among a list of target destinations for the expanding Bristol-based brand.
Work currently appears to be underway to transform Bold Street’s former Vincent Asian Kitchen eatery, with jobs also being advertised on the unit for the new Pieminister restaurant.
A section on Pieminister’s website highlighting Liverpool’s “coming soon” branch says: “We’ve set up shop in the luscious land of The Beatles, on one of the busiest streets of Liverpool! Find us on the infamous Bold Street where you can taste our award-winning British pies, made only with the finest, responsibly sourced ingredients. From 100% free range British meat pies to gluten-free, vegan society and vegetarian society approved, we have a pie for every taste.
“With all 14 of our delicious pies on offer, and a whole host of sides to get your taste buds tingling, come and experience the best of Pieminister right here in Liverpool. It’s the only place that you can tuck into the legendary Mothership and then finish it off with a luxury soft serve ice cream – Pieminister style.”
YM Liverpool has reached out to Pieminister for further comment on its new eatery in the city.
The chain hasn’t yet revealed an exact opening date for its restaurant, but its Twitter account yesterday (10 April) responded to a fan that “Liverpool is on its way later this month”.

Pieminister already has eight other restaurants around the UK, including fellow northern branches in Leeds and Sheffield, where it serves lunch and dinner alongside craft beers and cocktails.
The pie specialist also serves up quick lunches in seven pie and mash cafes, including a branch in Manchester, and has gained popularity with stands at music festivals and events.
