Best of Manchester Food & Drink Festival

Monday 18th to Sunday 24th March

Eh up our kid!

Here at the Wharf we're holding a Best of Manchester Food and Drink Festival. Running from Monday 18th to Sunday 24th March, showcasing the best our city has to offer and hosting a week long celebration of Manchester's greatest hits!

First up, as a nod to Manchester's history, and it's proud pioneers of vegetarianism, we're launching a special meat free menu filled with dishes for all to enjoy. The chefs are still busy developing the week's menu, but have given us a sneak preview of a couple of dishes such as a Harissa spiced halloumi with roasted vegetable kebabs and our hearty Butterbean, sweet potato & smoky tomato stew. Our full menu can be found on our website here and will run alongside our daily menu.

On the drinks side of things, we're having a total tap takeover, and all week the bar will be bursting with beers from the best local breweries. Thursday evening is a special treat as you'll be able to meet the lovely people behind the beers, that pour their passion into every pint (from 7.30pm onwards).

And we're not forgetting all you gin fanatics out there. Our back bar will be bursting with an array of gins from all over the city. So if you fancy getting adventurous, just ask at the bar and we'll be happy to talk you through some knock out gins from right here on our doorstep that you might not have come across before.

So there we are. A cracking week in the making so why not join us to support local talent and, more importantly, eat, drink and be merry!
