The proof is in the pudding for Chef Andrew Green at The Lowry Hotel with social media sensation ‘The Yorkshire pudding wrap’



In the past few weeks The Yorkshire pudding wrap has enjoyed widespread online fame and has become a social media sensation.

The Lowry Hotel’s head chef Andrew Green claims the trend setter’s crown as he has been creating this twist on the nation’s favourite Sunday dinner selection for friends and family for years.

To celebrate its newfound fashionableness and to show guests that the original and the best Yorkshire pudding wraps can be found at the Lowry Hotel, head chef Andrew Green will be serving his speciality beef Yorkshire pudding wraps every Sunday, and a special festive turkey wrap all throughout December.

Head chef at the Lowry Hotel, Andrew Green says: “It was strange seeing the Yorkshire Pudding phenomenon blow up online, because I have been making them for a good few years now.

“It is no wonder the Yorkshire pudding wrap is such a sensation - it basically consists of a large flattened Yorkshire pudding, wrapped around carved meat plus all your roast dinner favourites and then smothered in thick gravy. It is the ultimate comfort food.

“We are so sure of the tastiness of our wraps that we challenge people to find a more delicious one anywhere else in the country! Come along and try it for yourself.”

The River Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel is a 2 AA rosette restaurant and one of Manchester’s best places to eat and drink in a glass-walled, riverside setting overlooking Santiago Calatrava’s Trinity Bridge.
The convivial atmosphere is also deeply luxurious with purple leather chairs, semi-circular banquettes, while Fornasetti plates, mirrors and lithographs and prints decorate walls, The River Restaurant also has an exclusive private dining room for up to 24 people which is licenced for weddings and civil ceremonies. The restaurant serves breakfast, Sunday lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.

The à la carte menu has been devised around the best local and seasonal produce. An additional three-course menu changes each month following the seasonal bounty and is just £24.95 for three courses at dinner except Saturday Evening, while our popular Sunday lunch menu is £22.50 per person for three courses and is always accompanied by live music. You can choose from Traditional Afternoon Tea priced at £22.50, or £33 with Gin, Champagne or Bellini. Or try our monthly themed afternoon tea priced at £29.50 which will celebrate big events such as PRIDE.

The River Restaurant’s superb à la carte menu has been given an update ready for the summer months. Packed full of local, seasonal dishes, the favourites are still there just with a twist for the warmer months. Expect citrus flavours, green salads and a blast of northern vibe in every bite. Using premium ingredients and local suppliers, the celebrational menu takes traditional and classic dishes and updates them with a modern twist.
such as the intense Potted Shrimp, a mouth-watering Lobster Macaroni Cheese, the highly popular Twice Baked 'Blacksticks Blue' Soufflé or the Salt Beef Hash, with slow egg and spiced ketchup. For mains, stand-out dishes include Andrew’s personal favourite the Beef Wellington which is brought to the table and showcased by the chef before being sliced. Baked in mushroom duxelles, Parma ham, with puff pastry with Maderia sauce, it’s one of a number of dishes to share between two. Fish-lovers are spoilt for choice. To decide between the delicately prepared Lowry Fish Pie which has intense flavours of the sea, or an exquisite Meuniere-style Whole Dover Sole, a prime, succulent fish served on or off the bone, or perhaps the Monkfish Loin, with Alsace bacon & pea velouté. You will not miss meat with our vegetarian options, which include Wild Mushroom, Puy Lentil & Aubergine Cottage Pie with truffled mash.
