A STYLISH STOCKPORT START TO MANCHESTER BEER FEST 2019

PUBMAN WARNING: PUB-FREE POST

I woke on Friday at Trivelles Mayfair (actually Heaton Chapel) relatively refreshed, determined to survive the Roger Protz beer tasting session at Manchester’s epic fest.

A bracing walk down to Stockport cleared the head, if not the calories from Thursday’s crispy beef at Wing Lee (NCTSS 3.5).

The walk takes in Stockport’s majestic new Redrock development,

as well as some old stuff that will make a good Brewhouse & Kitchen when Stocky catches up with Wilmslow.

You can never exhaust the delights of the Underbanks, even in that persistent light drizzle that marks the start of Cheshire.

Still no sign of Winters becoming a Cloudwater cask outlet, sadly.

But in the Market Place all is change, with two new openings to join Remedy, Petersgate Tap and the renewed Bakers in central Stockport. I must fix a week’s holiday with Mrs RM at the nearby Premier Inn so I can get up to date.

For now, I popped in the market for Breakfast at O’Maras, which someone will no doubt tell you is a Stockport institution.

£2.99 for a better breakfast than in the Spoons, though of course you can’t have Punk IPA with it.

On the upside, they don’t put the calories on the menu like they do in Spoons, so I reckon it was about 57.

On to Piccadilly (the real one).

  1. “a better breakfast than in the Spoons” – that’s easily found despite what one might read in a newly published magazine about beer.

    Apparently they are becoming the ‘must visit’ place in town, and I can see why! They have a coffee shop, a cinema, a lounge (bar), a gym and two types of Italian style eateries! 😉

    “You can never exhaust the delights of the Underbanks”*

    It appears to be a cornucopia of empty stores and those mostly flogging stuff to women. 🙂

    * – although that may explain the arrival of Redrock.

    “On the upside, they don’t put the calories on the menu like they do in Spoons,”

    I thought that was legally required over there?

    Cheers
