Eight of the best places to enjoy a roast dinner in Manchester

We’re already making our list ready for when lockdown begins to lift next month.

A roast dinner is held dear to the hearts of many Mancunians.

This quintessentially British meal marks a time to gather your nearest and dearest around the table to enjoy one of the heartiest meals you’ll probably have all week, yet with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic having once again forced all hospitality businesses to close their doors to diners since January, aside from takeout and delivery services, it’s been a while since we’ve let someone else chef the roast up for us.

But now that an “irreversible” roadmap for the lifting of England’s current national lockdown has been set out, we’re already looking forward to the day when we can tuck into a roast dinner at one of the region’s many independent eateries.

In no particular order, here’s eight more places to choose from.
