Pie’s the limit for Carlton Hill’s latest high street addition

Project Pies has its grand opening on Saturday (25) at 10am - and we can't wait.


Carlton Hill will be home to a new pie shop from this weekend when it opens its doors for the first time.

Project Pies has its grand opening on Saturday (25) at 10am – and we can’t wait.

The store replaces the well-loved Big Mike’s Fat Kitchen Cheesecake Shop that closed at the end of December, however, the two business owners are not strangers by any means.

Project Pie owner Danny Lione used to sell his pies in the cheesecake shop every Monday and is friends with Mike Jones, the previous store’s owner.

Mike revealed on his Facebook page that he couldn’t be happier that his friend is taking over the premises.

He posted: “We want to wish Dan all the luck in the world! It is very hard for small businesses at the moment so please give Dan all your support as you did us.”

Project Pie owner Danny, who used to work as a butcher, first set up the business during lockdown in 2020.

He said: “During the lockdown, I decided to put all my skills into producing proper high-quality comfort food during the pandemic. Utilising only locally butchered and free-range meat I started creating pork pies and scotch eggs and sold around the NG4 area and quickly found I couldn’t make enough!”

Danny prides himself on innovation and providing a wide range of pies, from traditional steak pies to his latest creation – the cheeseburger pie!

He said: “Every month we will have specials and the first month’s specials are Goose Fair Pie, Cheeseburger Pie and Chicken & Stuffing Pie.

Danny’s pies generally come in two sizes – smaller individual pies and larger family size pies that can feed 3/4 people.
