14 restaurants and bars that are new to Confidential Guides

4 months ago

It’s been quite a while since we’ve given you an update around here. There’s been plenty going on at Confidentials HQ. Lots of exciting new restaurants have opened in Manchester and around the North and we’ve been doing our best to keep on top of them all.

Factor in our partnership with Manchester Central Convention Complex, a whole raft of new partnerships on the way, and a commitment to move into lots of new sectors, and it’s been absolutely non-stop.

So we thought we’d give you an update on the new listings that have made their way onto our Manchester site over the last few weeks. We’ve finally caught up with Campagna at the Creameries that had been on our watch list for a while and popped down to Pollen at KAMPUS to check out its new digs. Perhaps one of the most exciting new openings is Kitten at Deansgate Square – a real one to watch for your sushi fill.

Of course, if you’re looking for something more specific, may we suggest our search function, with lots of filters to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
