What to Eat in Manchester

Manchester has a vibrant restaurant scene. Check out its food halls and food markets at establishments like the Altrincham Market food hall where you can choose from multiple purveyors, or nosh on street food and craft beer at GRUB Food Fair open every Friday and Saturday. Don't miss The Corn Exchange, which houses multiple restaurants inside a beautiful building. We also recommend trying some Indian food on Curry Mile in Manchester, which has the highest concentration of Asian restaurants in the U.K. 

When it comes to drinks, grab a pint or two at The Oakfield, a British pub in Chester Zoo or The Eagle Inn in Salford close to Victoria train station. For an upscale bar, Cloud 23 at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate has the city's highest views (on the 23rd floor of the hotel) with floor-to-ceiling windows. It offers light bites and desserts. And this city is especially known for its beer, boasting more than 30 breweries within striking distance. You can even tour some like Dunham Massey Brewing Company and Martland Mill Brewery, among others.
