The Most Inventive Restaurants in the North West

4 years ago

Looking for something different, something quirky, something a bit off-piste? We’ve got you. From ‘sequences’ (not ‘courses’, that’s too establishment) of plankton pomada to crisped fermented turnip and Kentucky fried potato… if you’re looking for rump n chips you ain’t gonna find it here… unless you want it desiccated and served in a submarine.

Here’s a few of our favourite boundary-pushing restaurants from across the North West and a bit into Yorkshire. Prepare to be amazed… and baffled.

    Where the Light Gets In

    Restaurant - Modern British

    The UK’s most exciting ‘no menu’ restaurant. With no menu and esoteric wines, Where the Light Gets In doesn’t adhere to the typical fine-dining formula. But it’s been a success for Stockport, thanks to chef-patron Sam Buckley’s belief in doing things his own way.
