Had one at lunchtime.
First time for a Manchester tart.
For those who’s minds are in the gutter, here is a description. 🙂
‘Twas at the Manchester Museum. In their cafe.
Favourite museum exhibit?
The hall with display cases for distinct themes eg:’Peace’, held a flock of white origami birds. The case labelled ‘Life’ made me smile. It was empty. Life must be tough in Manchester. hahaha
Have covered most of the museums, during my time here.
And a few of the pies.
Best bet for food – Arndale Market. North-east quadrant of the mall. Lots of variety, and at a fair price. Includes half decent pies, for a couple of quid each.
Best bet for beer ….. is tricky.
Bay Horse Tavern did not have sparklers on their real ale beer pumps. Their pie n chips was decent too, though pastry is of the puff variety.
Cutest pub is the Circus Tavern. Smallest bar in Europe. Two cute rooms, with working fireplaces. And real ale. But uses sparklers. They are removed on request.
Proper pub is the Cask, near the Science museum. Again. Uses sparklers, but can be removed on request.
Mentioned pies above.
Great North Pie Company produces the best in the Mancunian area.
And just around the corner from my second hotel.Yes! I enjoyed my first few days in Manchester so much that i stayed an extra three nights. And at a nice n very reasonable place, near Canal Street.
Nearby you will find the Richmond Tea Rooms, where i am writing this. Had the ‘Tweedles’ tea option. Includes fish n chips, that were outstanding.
Ended with a scone, clotted cream n jam 🙂
