The Fat Loaf in Sale swung open its doors in late December 2004. We are a modern European bistro offering some of the best food in the north headed by owners Paul Taylor & Timothy wood (ex Longueville manor 1* Michelin, & River room restaurant Marco Pierre White).
The menu is based around French recipes with a modern interpretation, the wine offering is very competitive with both easy drinking & more serious wines included.
The service is friendly but efficient to give a warm welcome to all our guests.
We can seat up to 50 dining plus a bespoke catering service for specialist weddings & occasions.
The premises are also available for exclusive use hire.
The restaurant has had critical acclaim from the good food guide, nominations for best newcomer at the Manchester food festival and is part of timeouts best 30 restaurants to visit in Manchester.

Don't bother with the cheap pub grub in the village. Pay a couple of pounds a head more and have a wonderful, freshly cooked (not microwaved!) good value and really tasty meal. I have been going to the Fat Loaf in the village since it opened and have enjoyed it every time.

wonderful place. exquisite food. brilliant staff. if they have the assiette of market fish on the menu, have it. even if you're not a big fan of fish. it's beautiful.

We ate here and chose from the "Special" selection. We had the selection of 3 fishes (sea bass, salmon and smoked haddock) all of which were moist, succulent and simply but nicely presented. Staff were pleasant and service was excellent.
Harry Potter, Trafford Bar
What a wizard night out! It started with a magical goats cheese tartlet with rocket salad, splendid for a quadditch fest. I had the Rib Eye steak, however, Malfouy had the rabbit saddle ( I couldn't face it as my little bunny Flopsy had gone missing the day before!). Uncle Hagrid said that the cheesecake was delicious but was disappointed that there was NO NUTS IN THE LEMON DRIZZLE CAKE! There was plenty of chatty banter from all of the Griffindaw clan as we were tended by very attentive staff. The chicken and sprout puree was very adventurous and will be well repeated at Christmas time (or any other time it is eaten.!!)
On a serious note, these boys are really going places and it is an absolute pleasure to observe them grow! Keep it up lads!
Can't say enough nice things about this place. Been going since the Guardian did a nice write-up about it in their Guide section last year. A much-needed change from Sale's range of sports bars and run-of-the-mill restaurants. Lovely, unpretentious bistro with simple decor, recently extended which can only be a good thing as it's half it's original small size. Staff are friendly and efficient and the open-plan kitchen makes for something to watch and chatty banter with the chef/proprietor. Food is lovely, simple and modern British, and the menu changes weekly. If I have to critize at all, I'd only suggest a little more of a sense of adventure with some of the flavours...though it isn't fusion food they're doing, so I'll let them off! The early bird special gets you two courses for £13.50 if you sit down before 6.45 on a Tuesday-Thursday. They did offer free coffee and biccies too, but I think they dropped that when they got popular!

Myself, family and friends have eaten at the Fat Loaf five or six times. The quality of the food is superb and the menu updated on a regular basis. Given the bonus of no corkage on wine it is really fabulous value.
We feel really lucky that we have such a gem so close to home.
