A modern and thoughtful Manchester bistro

Who we are

We are a British bistro and bar located in Manchester city centre that focuses on seasonality throughout the UK.

Our menus and dishes change on a daily basis. We aim to champion seasonal vegetables predominantly sourced from our partner farm Cinderwood Market Garden in Cheshire, whole-animal butchery, hand-rolled pasta and fresh fish and seafood cooked over coal.

The wine list encourages discovery and curiosity with a spotlight on small-scale, low intervention winemakers from around Europe.

Both an à la carte and a seasonal set sharing menu are available at lunchtime and dinner. We hold space for walk-ins in the dining room and at the kitchen bar counter so you can always pop by to grab some plates and a glass of wine!
