Nell’s Pizza is set to open a new location in Altrincham later this year

Let's all have a big ol' pizza party in Alty.

Manc pizza favourites Nell’s have announced they are opening a new location in Altrincham later this year, meaning the Trafford market town will finally get a taste of their legendary 22-inch pizzas.

Best known for boasting the largest pizza in the city, ever inventive twists on their New York-style slices, equally popular ice cream sandwiches, great cocktails and more, Nell’s has got to be up there with one of the most universally loved foodie spots in Manchester.

And soon to unveil what will be their fifth location to date over in Alty, the brand is now expanding even further across Greater Manchester, with the latest Nell’s site scheduled for September 2024.

It seems crazy to think they first launched in lockdown and how far the brand has come since then, having revealed that they will also be opening another city centre location this autumn too.

With three existing locations – the OG one over at Common in NQ, the canal-side spot at Kampus and from the kitchens of The Beagle in Chorlton – this is the furthest Nell’s has ever ventured from the city limits and is yet another great addition to Altrincham‘s ever-growing hospitality scene.


The new restaurant is set to pop up in the bustling Stamford Quarter’s new Foundation building and workspace on George Street, featuring a huge bar and outside area.

Better yet, this new space is literally spitting distance from the Altrincham Interchange, meaning those coming into the area will only have to trot across the road to get a taste of one of Manchester’s very best pizzas.


If you’ve somehow never sampled Nell’s before, you can get their pizza by the slice, a perfectly sufficient 14″ pie or the frankly ridiculously 22″ (he says knowing full well he’s an entire one to himself on multiple occasions). Either way, it’s one of our absolute favourites.

Announcing the new location, founder Jonny Heyes said: “We’ve been hoping to open a Nell’s in Altrincham for years. We love the town, it’s so vibrant – it almost feels like coming on holiday when you head over here. We can’t wait to be part of it.”

With art and music having a huge influence on the brand as well as Bruntwood and Trafford Council‘s wider plans to revitalise the Altrincham high street, the new Nell’s will also spotlight a fresh set of work by multi-media artist Tara Colette, as well as local and emerging talent providing tunes at the weekend.


It’s also a better time than ever to get on Nell’s hype train since they added new menu items not so long ago, including their ‘calzoneta’ filled with cheesy marmite, baked until crisp on the outside and stringy in the middle, as well as a fresh iceberg wedge salad with ricotta salata.

And don’t worry, the massive ‘za, cocky-Ts and ice cream sarnies aren’t going anywhere.
