8 course lunch at Manchester House

Fine dining is an experience that everyone should try. Yes, it’s decadent, but for a special occasion it’s justifiable, and, in my view, so worth it.

On Saturday afternoon we took the boy’s parents to Manchester House, Aiden Byrne’s restaurant on the edge of Spinningfields. And if you’re wondering about the occasion, it was a Christmas present.

I’ve decided not to make this post a traditional review. Instead I simply want to showcase what was a delicious, 8 course tasting meal. It pushed us to the edge of our comfort zone with dishes and flavours that we would not necessarily order. That’s the beauty of a tasting menu – you might be surprised by what you enjoy.
