“A hidden gem on the fringe of the Northern Quarter and Ancoats”, Kevin & Rachel Choudhary’s ‘English market diner’ is “driven by seasonal produce”, with “a constantly changing menu of adventurous and innovative dishes”. There’s “serious culinary ambition here and the reach mostly falls within their grasp – rabbit and pistachio cigars, smoked aubergine, tempura crab in green curry, venison, mackerel, ‘Manchester moneybags’ to finish – this is contemporary, international cuisine with a confident touch”.

Kevin & Rachel Choudhary ran a pub in Altrincham before launching this eclectic “English market diner” in Ancoats. With its “relaxing environment full of plants”, it's “a bit like dining in a conservatory”. On the menu: “hard-to-fault locally sourced food from a daily changing menu”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
