6 restaurants you should definitely visit in PrestwichConfidentials 1 year ago
Boasting some of Greater Manchester’s loveliest parks and open spaces, Prestwich is the perfect place to head out from the city if you fancy exploring some of the region’s green and pleasant land.
As far as food goes, head to Scandi-themed “one-to-watch”, OSMA which was described by our reviewer as having an “underlying dark, witchy madness to it” for everything from sandwiches and juices to lamb rillettes and white asparagus – depending on the season, of course.
Or try upmarket takeaway Triple B if bagels, burgers and salt beef are more the fuel you’re after for a brisk walk around Kersal Moor.

All The Shapes
All The Shapes has that relaxed café-bar, all-day-eatery thing nailed. It’s the sort of place where you feel equally comfortable rocking up with toddlers in tow or drinking your way through the craft beer range until closing time.
Throughout the day, you’ll find wholesome brunches like toasted banana bread with chocolate spread or home-made granola as well as cracking coffee and some excellent cakes. There is also a very good kids brunch menu with everything from Greek yoghurt with jam to smashed avocado on toast for your junior hipster.
After brunch finishes (at 4pm, you lazy folks), there’s a menu swip-swap and it all becomes a Mexperience. Very appetising it is too.
Like the interloping bird that gives it its name, Cuckoo was an odd-one-out when it first opened in Prestwich back in 2013. Since then a whole flock of likeminded, indie cafe-bars have landed in this suburb, but Cuckoo is still the favourite for many.
Patiscerria and small-batch Italian hand-roasted coffee that’s the name of the game at the award-winning Lupo Caffe Italiano.
OSMA is a clever contraction of Oslo and Manchester, the home cities of its two owners. However this portmanteau is even more well-travelled than that. Ingredients are local, lunches are Scandinavian and evening meals are an ever-changing roster of small plates from further afield.
Triple B was born in the midst of the pandemic when the Eat New York crew left the NQ and took their burger and bagel offering to the suburbs. Based in a former chip shop in Prestwich, it’s an upmarket takeaway with a seating area, selling all the street food wonders that won people over on Oldham Street.
