Neighbourhood

Long heralded as the go-to destination for anybody with a proclivity for chickpeas and hessian, Chorlton has become a byword for all things hipster and hippy. This ex-village turned middle-class arts graduate’s suburban utopia is often touted as being one of the best places to live in the UK.

Chorlton is the liberal heart of Manchester, awash with organic delis, independent bars and restaurants. To one side of the area you find charity shops and vegan supermarkets; on the other is Beech Road, often cited as "the trendiest road in Manchester" because of its abundance of boutiques and restaurants.

Much of the area is taken up by green space, with Chorlton Park leading over towards Didsbury, Longford Park heading towards Stretford and Chorlton Ees (encompassing waterways, a lake, lush meadows and a golf course) bordering Sale.

It is well-loved by couples with young families - one of the most frequent sights of the area is a new father driving a pushchair - and the festival-going professional set. Perhaps because the residents tend to be so similar, there is a very strong community feel in Chorlton. This is never as obvious as during one of the small festivals that stud the annual calendar.

Buzzy restaurants
Oystercatcher - Fish “Doing lots of little things right” is a definition of perfection – that churns out char-grilled whole squid and seabream, Thai-spiced monkfish tail and possibly the best calamari in the UK. The Creameries - British This laid-back neighbourhood bakery, bar and kitchen is presided over by baker and co-owner, Sophie Yeoman, and celebrated local chef Mary Ellen McTague, who spent time in the kitchens of Heston Blumenthal (amongst others) before running her own fine dining establishment, Aumbry, in Prestwich. The Creameries is a much more casual affair than Aumbry, but McTague’s nose for the best ingredients and attention to detail shine through in even the simplest dishes – from pheasant pie to wild garlic soup. The real focus though is on bread, cheese, wine and beer. Sourdough is baked in-house and predictably wonderful with whipped butter on the side. Bar San Juan – Spanish Tapas There is no menu to view online, you can’t book a table and it is about the size of a corner shop, but Bar San Juan is almost always bursting at the seams with customers. This unassuming little tapas bar is one of those hidden gems of almost cult-like status that locals just love to recommend. Rightly so. Double Zero – Italian Pizza An authentic Neapolitan style pizzeria, Double Zero has been lauded as one of the best in the UK. The menu is confident simplicity with the pizza taking centre stage, obviously. That black-speckled, bubble crusted beauty that you have come to know and love, made on site with a blast (90 seconds max) in their Dantean blue and white tiled furnace. Apart from the obvious, toppings include Italian ham and pineapple, placed brazenly at the top of the list to goad the naysayers, perhaps. Electrik - ITALIAN Electrik is an award-winning independent bar with great coffee and a wide selection of beer, wine and cocktails. They offer a people-pleasing menu of freshly made Italian-style pizza, piadinas, and, pizza doughnuts! On Sundays, they cook up a legendary selection of roast dinners including a gargantuan sharing platter groaning under the weight of a whole roast chicken, piles of roast beef and pork and all the trimmings. Vegan options are available too.
Cool bars
Electrik, The Elk, The Lead Station, The Library, The Font, Mary & Archies, Henry C - AMERICAN Serving up Po Boys and great cocktails, Henry C is a cosy neighbourhood bar with a heavy New Orleans influence. As with many newer bars and dining spots in Chorlton, its premises used to be a shop, with large windows looking out at the goodie-two-shoes grocery, Unicorn. But everything in moderation, right? You can pick up a tote full of chickpeas for the week and grab a grilled cheese sarnie and a Negroni as a reward.
Cozy cafés
Love Thigh Neighbour, Junipers, The Library, North Star Deli, The Crealeries, Barbakan Deli – EUROPEAN Having its roots in Eastern Europe, Barbakan was first establish some 50 years ago. This community food haven is essentially a classic European deli. People come from all over the show to pick up their house baked loaves, their massive German Sausages, their Polish doughnuts and pastries, their Italian antipasti and coffee, their Greek olives, their Spanish hams, their French cheese and so many other European wonders that it might lead a person to the conclusion that Brexit is a really bad idea. With a large outdoor seating area, you can grab a casual bite to eat and a coffee with mates before filling your hemp-fibre tote bag full of goodies to take home.
