Harden's survey result
Patrick Hannity’s “top-notch” Didsbury brasserie has been “the model of consistency” for more than 30 years. “It retains the perfect combination of great food with fantastic wine and brilliant service in a vibrant atmosphere” and – though somewhat overshadowed nowadays by flashier openings elsewhere in the city – still has a fan club who consider it “Manchester’s best”: “a bit of a schlep so we only go on my birthday, but I wouldn’t go anywhere else”.
“Still, after all these years, our favourite restaurant in Manchester” – this “totally charming” Didsbury brasserie “never lets you down in any department”. It’s “a real institution in the city” and for a number of reporters “Manchester’s best restaurant”: “the food is consistently beautiful without being over-elaborate and the service could not be better, with a relaxed feel”.
This “brilliant, relaxed” Didsbury brasserie continues to deliver some of “the most consistent food in Manchester”, as it has for decades – “much of it from (chef-patron) Patrick Hannity’s farm” – along with an “excellent wine list” and “superb staff”.
“A favourite of pretty much everybody that's ever been!” – this formidable Didsbury brasserie “never lets you down”, not least the “consistently great” service. “You could eat here every week – there’s nothing too fancy or clever, and the menu would suit your maiden aunt as well as your new lover.”
