Food and restaurants in Manchester

Top restaurants

Pizza Place
“Rudy's Neapolitan pizza has been recognised worldwide. It's simply the best pizza in Manchester and arguable the UK, if not further afield. We go here far too much! Warning, it gets super busy, especially at weekends. People sometimes wait up to 2 hours for a seat, but you can put your name down and grab a drink at a nearby bar while you wait. We recommend the Romagnola or Calabrese (spicy). Veggie and Vegan options available too. ”

Bar
“This very stylish Pacific Rim restaurant from Knutsford's Living Ventures group offers a fantastic choice of sushi, sashimi and tempura dishes. The menu combines modern Australian cuisine with Pacific Rim flavours underpinned by European cooking traditions, a blend of Indonesian, Southeast Asian influences and Australia's strong ties with Japan are reflected. Located underneath the Armani store in Spinningfields, you enter via a glass pyramid on Deansgate.”

History Museum
“Befitting the national museum of democracy, objects related to the fight for the vote make up a core of the collection. The objects are hugely varied. The PHM collection of trade union and political banners is the largest and most important of its type in the world. The museum also houses an internationally significant political archive and includes the complete holdings of the Labour Party and Communist Party of Great Britain. PHM also holds over 95,000 photographic images covering labour history, the Labour Party and more general political history.”
