Former Aumbry owner “Mary Ellen McTague is no longer cooking but she has left the stoves in excellent hands” at this award-winning yearling – a restaurant/wine bar/bottle shop, in an Edwardian creamery, with “basic” school benches. By day, the focus is on cakes, breads etc courtesy of co-owner/baker Sophie Yeoman. Come the evening, “small, light dishes from the minimal menu are cleverly executed” – albeit “not for those expecting a robust plate of food”.

Summary

This minimal-looking, spring 2018 newcomer in Chorlton in a converted Edwardian creamery – a crowd-funded venture from former Aumbry owner Mary Ellen McTague and baker Sophie Yeoman – opened too late for survey feedback, but has set Manc’s foodie media abuzz, winning best newcomer at Manchester’s Food & Drink Awards. Although there are a few ‘proper’ dishes on the minimal menu and there’s more ambitious cooking in the evenings, its prime strengths especially by day seem to be its baked goods (cakes, breads, pastries, etc), cheeses and coffee.
