We would like to introduce you to our good friends at Aumbry, an absolute gem of a restaurant in Prestwich, North Manchester. Chef-proprietors and husband and wife team, Mary-Ellen McTague and Laurence Tottingham, run what we consider to be Manchester’s finest restaurant along with co-owner Kate Mountain. Set up in a small cottage just off the high street they produce outstanding food served with a light and informal touch. The 2 chefs were schooled under Heston Blumenthal no less, so expect quality and finesse but with a distinctive style all of their own.
We have put together a small tasting menu for you, to give you a glimpse of their wonderful food and to prove that beer can be paired with more than just cheese, chocolates and a Ruby Murray. This is going to be a very limited pop-up affair, only 35 spaces per day, never to be repeated.
