Manchester is a city that knows how to have a night out. Start your evening off in style with this unique food tour exploring some of the city’s best food and drink offerings.

We’ll meet up at a venue that used to be famous for its legendary concert nights but now draws in the crowds for it’s food just as much as it’s music. You’ll enjoy some of Manchester’s latest bites from up-and-coming street food vendors before we embark on our walk through the city.

Each place we visit on the tour has a unique dish that represents a part of Manchester and its people. Visiting our favourite vendors, we’ll share our stories about how the city has changed and what life is really like in the capital of the North.

We support locally owned and run businesses, some of whom have been part of the city’s fabric for generations. Others have just started out on their food journey, but we know they’ll be with us for years.

As well as a plethora of amazing food, a good drink is never too far away on this tour. From a locally brewed beer to a specially created cocktail. We have included specific stops that also offer us a liquid taste of Mancunian life. It’s important we say that this is a food and drink tour, not a pub crawl.
