Looking for somewhere to eat?

At Confidentials, we love to write and share stories about the best food and drink in Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds. is the place to go for the latest food, booze, news and reviews in the region but it's fast paced and very much in the moment. Often, the best places are tried and tested - that's why they're still around - so there might not be a news article or review for a long time. We regularly get phone calls from our readers, asking for advice on where's good to go for special occasions, particular food requirements, dog-friendliness etc. and we wanted to build a searchable database for readers to browse in their own time.

We've been busy beavers... adding over 400 quality restaurants in Greater Manchester and beyond, which you can now search through using our new and improved search function.

How do we choose which restaurants to include?

The directory does not intend to be exhaustive. We only include venues we believe provide a quality experience. Inclusion is based on the knowledge of our passionate local food writers – and the directory is constantly growing.

We also value our readers’ opinions. If there’s somewhere you think we’ve missed, let us know and we’ll check it out.

Our main requirement is first-rate food but we may also include venues that we think offer an enjoyable experience in other ways; for example through great entertainment.

Confidential Guides is produced by Northerners; for everyone. We cover everything from slap up burgers and comforting Sunday lunches, to fine dining and exceptional food experiences.

We hope you find the guide useful and we welcome your feedback.
