The neighbourhood venue will be located in Sawmill Court - alongside their second bakery

Award-winning Levenshulme cafe-bakery Trove have revealed plans to open a new 'laid-back evening space and neighbourhood eatery' in Ancoats this Autumn.

The venue, named Erst, will be located at Sawmill Court, behind the Halle St Peter's, alongside their new bakery announced in March.

Trove say Erst will be a calm and contemporary space 'to socialise, drink some wine, have a beer on tap, and eat simple yet beautiful food'.

The focus, they say, will be on 'simple and seasonal' dishes sourced via UK suppliers, alongside Trove's signature house-made sourdough, pickles and ferments.

Wine will be of a natural/organic persuasion, beers will be craft (both local and global), and cocktails will be cocktails.

Marty Edelman, executive chairman of Ancoats development company, Manchester Life, said: “Trove is an amazing business that has grown from a market stall in 2011 to become one of Manchester’s most loved bakeries and cafés.

“We are honoured that Trove has chosen to make Sawmill Court their city centre home, they are a fantastic home-grown addition to the Ancoats food and drink scene.”

Trove is just one of a new batch of popular regional food and drink operators moving into Manchester's burgeoning former industrial heartland, including Sugo, El Gato NegroPollen and Hip Hop Chip Shop.

Erst is due to open at Sawmill Court in Autumn 2018. Read 'Ancoats: who's opening what, where and when' to find out who else is moving in...
