Manchester’s beloved Patissier & Chocolatier, Slattery, will be welcoming back customers to its dining room later this month.
The popular Whitefield luxury dessert venue – which has stood since 1967 – launched a chocolate box collection and delivery service back in May to appease sweet-toothed Mancunians.
But from July 9, they will be reopening their premises for diners.
Like many venues, Slattery will be running a limited menu with restrictions on capacity.
Customers will also be given slots of one hour and 45 minutes in the restaurant, with disposable menus on tables and enhanced cleaning procedures in place.
The venue’s famous Chocolate Challenge – which contains a large portion of American-style chocolate fudge cake, fresh cream and two chocolate pots filled with liquid chocolate sauce with a glass of hot chocolate – will be available to order.
Anyone who manages to polish off the piled-high plate will receive a Slattery chocolate medal and a 100g box of chocolates. Probably best saved for another day…
The Mason Dining Room will initially be opening from 9am – 5pm, Tuesday to Sunday.
Slattery’s gift shop is already operational, having resumed trading on June 16 with hand sanitation stations and screens intact.
