Harden's survey result
Celeb restaurateur, Gary Usher’s “very reliable” Didsbury operation is nowadays the most commented-on member of his crowdfunded Elite Bistros chain, and one of Manchester’s most popular destinations. That it’s a bit “loud” is the worst charge anyone has to level at it – most reports merely praise its “brilliant” dishes, “relaxed” style and “very attentive” service. Top Menu Tip – “the custard tart is to die for”.
“Part of the slick Gary Usher machine”, his Didsbury operation “is the classic neighbourhood bistro” which on all accounts is “genuinely what every local restaurant should be”. “It serves lots of things you want to eat. There are no fireworks, but it’s all so very good”.
“A good replacement for ‘Jem and I’ whose site it took over” – Gary Usher’s crowd-funded newcomer is “a welcome addition to Didsbury”, with “some really good plates like the ‘feather blade’ beef and a very good offer under £20 for ‘early birds’”.

"Another good dinner at Hispi. The only downside was the halibut was over cooked. Everything else was good."
