Red Chilli (Chinese)

Manchester has a thriving Chinatown and while the impressive Yang Sing often attracts business diners, those in the know go to Red Chilli. The basement venue is fashionably fitted out and features all kinds of weird and wonderful treats for the palate. There’s another branch near the university.

Sam’s Chop House (British)

For an atmospheric slice of Victorian life, try this beautiful gastropub with a restaurant attached. Their corned beef hash – 10 days in the making and a classic British dish – is rightly famous. And if you can’t get a booking, try one of the other two Chop Houses – Tom’s and The Albert Square.

Manchester House (British)

Spending £3 million on a new restaurant seemed a gamble back in 2013, but Aiden Byrne’s inventive local cooking has won over Manchester’s diners. This is pretension-free fine dining. You even walk through the open kitchen on your way to your table.

ABode Manchester

The higher you climb in this former cotton merchant’s warehouse, the better the rooms – the 5th floor’s apartment-style rooms are more like a hip loft conversion than a hotel. Downstairs, Michael Caines’ restaurant is vibrant and atmospheric, while the location just a few paces from Manchester’s main railway station is fantastic.
