The Manchester bars now serving food to stay open in tier 3
Show your support where you can.
Several bars are now serving food so they can stay open in the new tier 3 restrictions.
Tier 3 restrictions are now in place in Greater Manchester meaning bars not serving ‘substantial’ meals have to close, estimated at 2,000 venues.
However, many bars who have been open since July 4th with new Covid-secure measures in place are quickly adapting their offering to now serving food so they can remain open.
Anything ‘like a main lunchtime or evening meal’ is deemed ‘substantial’ by the government’s official definition.
G-A-Y is now serving a low-price nostalgic food menu called ‘Not The Ivy But Substantial’.
The menu includes a range of brilliant grub all for £2, including beans on toast, jacket potatoes, and cheese and tomato pizza with chips.
The Sis4ers gin distillery has launched a new afternoon tea concept while the Red Lion Inn in Whitworth is offering £1.50 beef dripping chip butties. The bar said ”some would say is a pretty… substantial meal… if you’re picking up what we’re putting down here’
Sammys Cocktail bar is now serving bagels at just £3, including salt beef, pastrami, smoked salmon and cream cheese and a vegan version of the smoked salmon bagel.
Craft beer bar The Crooked Man in Prestwich is now hosting a pop up from SanSan, which includes massive sandwiches, wraps, burgers, and even their famous bacon waffle sandwich.
Popular takeaway shop Cafe Marhaba have offered up their services to pubs and bars to help them stay open. On Instagram they said: “We think we may be able to provide a pop up service or meal kits which you can put together to provide your customers with a substantial meal.” Send them a DM if you’re interested.
Neighbourhood bar The Milliner in Stockport have quickly changed into a new restaurant Northern Scraps and will be selling bowls of veggie chilli for just £1.
YES on Charles Street (just off Oxford Road) is now operating as a self-titled ‘yes-taurant’ keeping up its existing food trade as normal. You can get pizzas by the slice or whole as well as vegan Doner kebabs.
Common bar is now a family restaurant with its in-house partnership, Nell’s pizza available all day every day.
Grub shared on Instagram that they will help any businesses without a substantial food offering by helping arrange a street food trader with them.
Morrisons is now selling a pizza topped with the world’s hottest chilli
Might be a bit hot this.
2020 is about to get a whole lot more spicy.
Coming in at over two million Scoville units the new Grim Reaper Pizza at Morrisons is smothered with Carolina Reaper hot sauce and blended with black garlic.
Topped with birds eye chillies ‘concealed’ among hot nduja sausage, spicy chicken and fiery cheese.
It comes as no surprise that the pizza comes with a warning label.
If you’re one which can handle the heat this Pizza is definitely for you!
The petrifying pizza is available for a limited time only, so get to your Morrisons quick if you want some spice in your life.
Get a pint of milk too whilst you’re there, you’ll probably need it.
The Pizza Buyer at Morrisons said “This pizza is one of the hottest and spookiest we’ve ever made. It is definitely not one for the faint-hearted, especially with the burn from the Carolina Reaper hot sauce”
The pizza will be available across the country until November 1st and will set you back just £3.98.
If you like things blow-your-head-off spicy, Iceland also has a full range of seriously HOT products, including the Carolina Reaper Curry!
The tikka chicken curry is laced with Carolina Reaper chilli and garnished with an entire Jinta pepper. A previous review really sells the curry: “Jeez! I like a hot curry, and a robust chilli, but this was not for the faint-hearted. My mouth was instantly on fire and I was left gasping for breath. This was fierce!”
You can now get bottomless chicken wings, fries AND booze every day of the week at Bunny Jackson’s
Bunny Jackson’s have altered their offering to head into Tier 3 ready and waiting to keep the people of Manchester with full bellies.
The new tier 3 rules mean that from 00:01 on Friday to remain open, any pub or bar must be serving ‘substantial meals’.
That’s why Bunny Jackson’s is letting you eat UNLIMITED chicken wings while you drink til your heart’s content.
‘Bottomless Bunny’s’ means you can get bottomless wings and fries with a beer, frozen cocktail or flavoured Lambrini.
They announced their news on social media with the caption: “If we’re being made to eat while we booze, then here comes Bottomless Bunny!”
You can opt for House BBQ, Buffalo or Classic wings with chips on the side and choose your favourite drink too.
You don’t even need to book – you can just head down for some wings for £25 per person.
That’s your weekend plans sorted.
