Another addition to the Atherton Empire, located immediately outside the entrance to Michelin starred City Social - suited mainly for drop ins
This is a mix between a casual drop in lunch or dinner eatery as much as it is for a quick snack with drinks. As usual, Mr Atherton has provided something slick and suited for the business area and I enjoyed the fact that the simple has been upscaled without impeding too much. The trotters were pleasing (albeit with a rather thick & gloopy relish) and the prawn cocktail nicely done and I loved the fact that a lot of care had gone in to a simple, yet old favourite of the sausage roll, filled with elements of apple and balck pudding served with HP gravy (which had a pleasing runny depth). The set menu here represents the best value at £22 for 3 courses at lunch and it seems to do its job well of catering for those that want more than the norm but not overdo things at the same time. A safe bet option for filling a gap.
