The Mark Addy Manchester Reviews
Delicious Original British Food that won't break the bank Jun 06, 2011
The only place to go to experience classic British cooking and the real flavours of the North West. Great food, great beer and great wine.
The Mark Addy is one of Manchester's highest rated gastropubs, a bit rough round the edges but with great views and an incredible menu. It's brown glass canopy, covering steps that lead down to the pub set in old cellars by the water's edge, has been a Manchester landmark for years. Just recently it's re-invented itself as a dining destination that shows how creative and tasty British cuisine can be.
Ingredients are fantastic, the chef has gone on record saying he will only cook with food that can be grown or found in the British isles.
Signature dishes include Morecambe Bay Shrimp Soup, Pressed Tongue, Pan Roasted Dogfish with Saffron Barley and Wood Pigeon with Black Pudding. Most main dishes are between £12 and £15. Classics such as Fish & Chips and Toad in the Hole are on offer for £8 - £9 for the less adventurous or more budget conscious.
There only five or six desserts to choose from, but you'll find something that you like. The chef is a meat lover so vegetarian options are limited.
The restaurant has built up a cult following since opening for its excellent English menu and carefully selected range of cask ales. All reasonably priced for a city as expensive as Manchester. Wines are reasonably priced too.
This is one of the favourite Manchester destinations for the UK's top food critic, Jay Rayner. His recent review in the Guardian has brought more publicity, but chef Robert Owen Brown's imagination has already put the Mark Addy on the map.
If you travel to Manchester and want to experience the best food the region has to offer, you simply have to eat here.
