Cheshire Restaurants, Manchester Restaurants and Liverpool Restaurant news 6th Dec

So what have you been up to? Its the party season, few drinks out with Brian from accounts? Why not eh.

Done all your xmas shopping yet? Na, me neither, I'm mean what is that Amazon Prime account for if you can’t leave it all for express delivery on the 24th December?

Restaurant news wise, lots are closing and opening as something else.

Stockton Heath has gone mad for this recently, old fav of mine, Tom at 101 has gone, and become Harvey’s something or other. The Tapas place has closed Pan Y Vino, and thats going to be 'Prosecco and Pizza', open now ish. Gin lane has opened, doing gins. And Bus Stop is reopening with a new menu. The old Thai place on London Road is going to be a 'posh bar' according to my dad’s friend.

A Brazilian steakhouse has opened in Warrington, Bruno's is its name, apparently its a disco at night. Over in Altrincham amazing wine and tapas place Evuna is opening on the main street, I reckon in 2 weeks by the look of it.
The Leigh arms in Weaverham has only gone and had a refurb and is reopening today.

Down in Chester, they are set to welcome its first ever all vegan restaurant in the new year....oohhh...Hypha will be the city's first plant based and sustainable eatery and will offer small plates (presumable with some food on) and cocktails. In Manchester, Aiden Byrne has popped up again, this time he's back at Manchester House, but calling it 'Restaurant MCR' (The brainstorming meeting for the name must have been intense), anyway he’s getting back to tasting menus and less covers. Good luck sir.

Right that's about it, I’m off for a mince pie and a port (yes i have brought my own bottle to work..xmas spirit and all that).

If I don't see you have a great Christmas, go out and support the local restaurants, they need you!


PS This weekend at Walton Gardens, Nr Warrington they have a Winter Wonderland - Santa, lots of food, drink and gift stalls...and more, free entry so head down.
