  • Bombay to Mumbai, Bramhall, Chola Bhatura
    Bramhall

    Bombay to Mumbai

    Restaurant - Indian subcontinent

    The philosophy behind Bombay to Mumbai is simple: they want you to feel like a friend. It’s there in the nothing-is-too-much-trouble service but mainly it’s there in the food. It’s Indian home-cooking. Not restaurant food, but the sort of food you’d find on the streets and on dinner tables all over Mumbai.

    Restaurant - Modern British

  • Edinburgh Castle Manchester Table
    Book Now Ancoats

    Edinburgh Castle

    Bars

    The Edinburgh Castle is a fortification for fortifying yourself, full of hearty British fare. This defence against hunger has two parts. No, not motte and bailey, but an upstairs restaurant and a downstairs pub. Upstairs, downstairs and all the connotations that go along with that.

    The downstairs is a traditional old pub with a welcoming drinking zone and a separate eating area. Traditional pub or not, this is much more than just some Scampi Fries. In fact, this is some of the very best pub food in the city.

  • A dish at Four & Twenty in Penrith
    Cumbria

    Four & Twenty

    Restaurant

    You won’t find blackbirds baked in a pie at this Penrith bistro, but you will find a small menu of excellent local produce and some great wines. Four & Twenty is the best sort of neighbourhood restaurant. It’s friendly and intimate, the sort of place you gladly go back to time and time again, but with ambitious cooking that makes it a good choice for special occasions.

    Churton

    The White Horse in Churton

    Bars

    Thought it’s only been open a short while (since March 2023 to be exact), The White Horse in Churton is no rookie when it comes to good quality country pub food. It’s from Gary Usher’s Elite Bistros, the team behind the award-winning, crowd-sourced Sticky Walnut, amongst others.

  • Christmas special at The Yan in Cumbria
    Cumbria

    The Yan

    Restaurant

    The Lake District is almost as well-known for its fancy Michelin-star establishments as it is for its fells. The Yan is not quite like that. It’s a down-to-earth, hearty bistro. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth a visit, though. In fact, Grace Dent is a fan of its big flavours and so are we.
