Lord of the Pies has opened another award-winning pie shop in Chorlton, adding a major milestone in it’s owners recovery from cancer.
Lord of the Pies was founded in Stockport in 2011, and following the opening of their second site in Macclesfield Oliver Doyle expressed how life changing the move was, not only for the success of the business.
The move prompted a change of doctor, who insisted that Oliver be taken for urgent tests to investigate symptoms that previous GP had dismissed.
It’s not easy doing construction work when you’ve got a massive cut from front to back, it’s been painful swinging hammers around and stuff like that, but I feel stronger now”
Less than a year ago, Oliver Doyle was in intensive care following his diagnoses of a rare type of adrenal cancer that caused him to lose a kidney during the risky surgery to remove the tumour.
At the time Lindsay was told to prepare for the worst, however the couple have now celebrated the opening of their third Lord of the Pies. The pair can look back on the experience and feel proud to have built the award-winning business themselves, having completed the majority of the graft themselves.
“I was adamant I wanted to get home and be getting back to work. I just cracked on and everyday did a little bit of a walk and kept eating good food”
“Lindsay smuggled me in a pie and mash and it was the best thing I’d ever tasted”
Lord of the Pies has transformed the former Hickson and Black’s cheesemonger and deli on Barlow Moor Road into a modern with a nod to tradition, British cafe and beer house. Equipped with wooden floorboards and tables, tiled kitchen and counters, diners will be able to enjoy their authentic experience by pairing the pie with locally-sourced craft beer and real ale from the likes of Thornbrudge and Bollington breweries.
