An on-going series in which Confidential recommends four of our faves

Published on May 4th 2011.


Confidential recommends 02/05/2011

The Bay Horse

The pub that brought pub-going into the 21st century lies on lively Thomas Street. bay horse.jpg

Food includes British basics such as a pies, cheeseboards, burgers and the like.

This is a destination establishment in the Northern Quarter, attracting a variety of younger punters.

35-37 Thomas Street M4 1NA.
T: 0161 661 1041

Leonis Latin Cellar

A stalwart of two decades, located in an atmospheric basement of Cross Street and close to Albert Square. leonis.jpg

The menu does the Med thing but also travels to Latin America which reflects the owners background.

The biggy on the menu is the vast Paradilla with lamb chops, boneless marinated chicken, chorizo, chips, tomato and coriander dip.

55 Cross Street M2 4FW.
T: 0161 835 1254

Beluga

The well-loved Manchester bar that combines good service, a good range of drinks with a menu of classics from steaks to sandwiches. 

The terrace is generous and a real sun trap throughout the year, while the location next to the Town Hall (in a former Inland Revenue building of 1876 – boo) makes it a very convenient stop over.

2 Mount Street M2 5WQ.
T: 0161 833 3339

Earle

Sassy suburban venue with smart design and well-crafted dishes from Simon Rimmer, the chirpy, ladies’ favourite, TV chef. earle.jpg

Dishes such as Pork three ways, pork fillet and creamed cabbage, pork belly with black pudding mash and curried pork and apple spring roll or Pan-fried salmon and scallops, pea puree, bacon lardons and truffle always hit the spot.

4 Cecil Road, Hale WA15 9PA.
T: 0161 929 886
