In August 2021, we launched our ridiculously good (if we say so ourselves), comprehensive, curated restaurant guide,

We wanted to provide a resource that made choosing where to eat and drink easy - whether you’re a dyed in the wool Manc who still reminisces about Mash and Air, or a visitor to the city looking for the best dining out options. If you’re looking for new ideas for date nights or you’re in town for the bank holiday weekend with the family and need to find somewhere that pleases everyone. We built it to help you.

An events space in the heart of the city

Manchester Central is an award-winning venue in the heart of the city and has been an iconic destination for over 140 years. Among its eclectic yearly calendar are events as varied as Bongo's Bingo, Northern Fashion Week, The Northern Restaurant and Bar Show, MegaCon, New Scientist live as well as many other art fairs, conferences, exhibitions and gatherings.

With its stunning architectural features evoking the rich industrial history of Manchester, Manchester Central is a fantastic - and huge - space for events. Slap bang in the middle of the city, nestled behind the iconic Midland Hotel, over the road from the Bridgewater Hall and a hop away from St Peter’s Square and our beautiful Central Library, Manchester Central is the perfect base from which to explore Manchester. And there’s never been a better time to visit our expanding and evolving city. 

We’re thrilled to be partnering with this Manchester icon as the most trustworthy and extensive restaurant guide to the Greater Manchester region. 

As we expand into Merseyside, Cheshire, Lancashire, West Yorkshire and beyond, we look forward to helping more and more people in the North to find the perfect dining spot for every occasion.
