The Ivy Spinningfields

Kick it off with a good one shall we!? Massive, eccentric and stunning even if the decor is a bit like a crazy grandma’s house. You know you’re in for a treat.

King St Townhouse

Let’s keep things boujee with a big ol’ swanky hotel, including infinity pool (although that’s not open right now, thanks, COVID). A cracking Instagram picture is guaranteed.

YES/Facebook

YES

If like me the sound of a three quid pint makes you slowly turn your head, raise your eyebrows and lick your lips – this is the place for you. There’s also a pink room and pizza available but we all know you’re after that New York-style roof terrace. Plenty of live music too, you’re guaranteed a cracking (and messy) night.

20 Stories

Back to the fancy, head 20 floors up and you’re gonna get one of the, if not the best, view of the city. Perfectly Instagrammable you’ll find real trees up there on the 20th floor and plenty of men in blue Ralph Lauren shirts.

Cloud 23

We’ll keep it fancy for a bit with Cloud 23. Not technically ON a roof but it’s bloody high so we’re keeping it in this list. If you’ve never been then I’m not sure what you’ve been playing at for all these years. Get up there with a cocktail.

The Lower Turks Head/Facebook

Lower Turks Head

Right back to the pub, a proper boozer and a cracking roof terrace while it’s at it. Also, it’s a corker of a sun trap, if we’re lucky enough to be graced with the sun again this year.

Honest Burgers

Perhaps you want a burger while you’re slightly off the floor (it’s only one flight up this one) or maybe you’re after those delicious rosemary salt chips – whatever reason you’re in for a good time. Especially when you can see Pedro’s over the road.

Club Brass at Hotel Gotham

You’ve gotta be actually staying at the hotel to be treated with a seat on this rooftop but once you’re up there it’ll be worth it. Put your glad rags on, though, it’s a posh one.

Brickhouse Social NWS/Facebook

BrickHouse Social

Bit of a newby on the block, BrickHouse Social is tucked away off Oxford Road near Font. They’ve got posh kebabs, pizzas, brunch and of course a fantastic rooftop terrace. Which also has a cover for when it inevitably rains.

G-A-Y Manchester/Facebook

G-A-Y

While there may be a seemingly never-ending amount of outdoor options down in the Village, head straight to G-A-Y rooftop terrace. Now the view has been spoiled by some flats it’s the best spot for people watching.

G-A-Y, 63 Richmond St, Manchester M1 6JB
0161 228 6200

The Deansgate/Facebook

The Deansgate Tavern

A lively spot for a chilled pint and packet of crisps or pork scratchings. If Cloud 23 isn’t your bag, this is the one for you.

Great John Street Hotel/Facebook

Great John Street Hotel

This will have to be one you pop on your to-do list for now as it’s undergoing a massive renovation, which does mean it’ll be all swanky and new for when you do get the chance to have a cocktail some time next year!

Everyone is fuming at Gordon Ramsey’s £18 take away fish and chips

He’s done it again…

Published

on

Fox Broadcasting Company & GordonRamsey/Twitter

Gordon Ramsey has been tweeted a lot through the lockdown but not everyone has been impressed with his pretty expensive grub.

We already know about his £19 Full English (where you only get ONE sausage) and a £56 Sunday Roast (I hope it’s got gold on it) but now we’re talking about his fish and chips.

The classic Friday night dinner staple comes in at a whopping £18.50 and you’ll get a grand total of seven chips.

Ramsey posted the video on his Twitter with the caption: “You can’t beat a London House classic…. and this one’s to go!!”

He attached a video which sees him battering a fillet of fish before whacking it in the fryer along with some chips.

It’s all seasoned with salt and put in a takeaway carton. You also get mushy peas, tartare sauce and a muslin cloth wrapped half lemon to squeeze on the top tucked in the side of the box.

Sounds okay so far, right?

Well, not everyone is impressed by the fancy take away fish and chips where you only get even chips.

A follower wrote: “£18.50?? I mean if it came with 8 or 9 chips I’d think about [it] but 7 is taking the p***.”

Another added: “Need a few more chips in there. How much you charging for that? That would get sent straight back.”

A third said: “Fish batter doesn’t even look good, stingy af with the chips and mushy peas and all – bet it costs 10x that of the local chippy and isn’t even half as nice.”

A fourth followed added: “Where’s the rest of the chips? I’ve seen more chips in a seagull’s mouth!!!”

Seven Brothers make beer inspired by Andy Burnham called ‘The King of the North’

Burnham Beer!

Seven Brothers Brewery have created a new beer inspired by Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham.

Andy Burnham has been nicknamed the ‘King of the North’ across social media for his efforts towards government support for a tier 3 lockdown in Greater Manchester.

But one Manchester-based company has gone a step further, dedicating a new batch of beer to him.

‘King of the North’ is a North England IPA that has been created by Seven Brothers.

The beer is a collaboration with Tip-Jar and their ‘hospitality mates’ across the city of Manchester to help raise funds for individuals who are most vulnerable at the minute. 

They shared the news on social media writing: “Tiers are flooding, the tips have dried up… enter KING OF THE NORTH!”

“Inspired by the Mayor of Greater Manchester and his fight for funding across the North, we’ve teamed up with Tip-Jar and our hospitality mates from across the City of Manchester to raise funds for hospitality workers in need during this difficult time.”

“There are two ways you can help. You can visit the link in our bio and leave a tip at the Tip-Jar link for a struggling hospitality worker. At this not-for-profit venture, all your kind tips are supporting carefully selected individuals.”

“You can also grab a can of our KING OF THE NORTH beer, a portion of all profits will also benefit this venture. This New England IPA is getting a North England twist and it really packs a punch.”

You can pre-order the beer now and they will be dispatched from November 18th. 

Seven Brothers are also creating free packed lunches with their sister company Four Sisters as part of the End Child Poverty campaign.
