Eating and drinking

Get stuffed in Salford! That's an invitation by the way - if you think our city's contribution to world cuisine begins and ends with the Eccles cake think again. We are very proud of our wide range of restaurants which boast incredible, award winning cuisine with something to suit all tastes. 

Champagne cocktails at The Lowry Hotel or real ale pints at The New Oxford Tasty dim sum in Eccles, or a top notch curry in Swinton? Or perhaps Sunday lunch with the papers by a roaring fire at The WoodsideBarton ArmsJohn Gilbert or any number of atmospheric pubs across the city. Welcome to foody heaven... 

Salford offers so many tasty treats that it showcases its fantastic restaurants, pubs and eateries in its annual Food and Drink festival. This year's event took place in October when we cooked up a splendid selection of events and special dining offers.

If you're looking for something a little bit different, try out one of the newest additions to the city centre dining scene with Menagerie which combines gastromony, art and performance. Whereas Salford's historic heart, Chapel Street, an area often sketched by artist LS Lowry, offers a flavour of history and culture as well as fine food family ventures including GK Gallery and Tea Rooms and the Deli Lama.

Not forgetting Monton, which boasts a number of eclectic dining venues from artisan pizza at 6/Cut to the Mediterranean delights of La Turka. In fact, early in 2017, this Salford village made it into the top 20 hippest areas to hang out in the UK, according to Travel Supermarket.

Salford also boasts award winning independent suppliers such as artisan meat supplier Andrews Continental delicaciesKingsland Wines as well as breweries Seven Brothers and First Chop, who handcraft their beer and ale respectively.

Both Penelopes Deli at MediaCityUK and George's Dining Room & Bar Worsley are in partnership with Foodinate, a social enterprise that works with charities to donate one meal to someone in need for every sponsored item sold. Continuing with the theme of bringing together business with the community, Incredible Edible encourages people to consider how they interact with the environment and grow their own food.

From smart restaurants to trendy cafes and friendly bars, The Quays has a fantastic range of places to eat and drink with spectacular views including on board dining.
