Manchester food and drink festival #1


 Well, I would love to be sharing an almighty, over excited first post of the Manchester food festival… It didn’t quite go to plan.


It started so well. I had prosecco and Pad Thai for breakfast! Seriously now, does it get any better?

And then the good folk of apple swooped in and consumed my afternoon (The boy got his new toy, I did not).

When we returned the festival was in full swing… heaving. I don’t mind queuing for my grub but after sitting in a phone shop for the best part of two hours I needed a good stiff drink. I found my poison at the liars club. Good people of Manchester, hit this tiki shack up. The drinks are worth the wait.

After that food and photography flew out of the window. We sloped off to the Alchemist for a sit out in the September cold and a passion fruit Mojito.  


It was a liquid lunch by all accounts, it is the food and DRINK festival after all. I promise to eat on my next visit.

    I cant really think of many better places to enjoy liquid dining than at the Alchemist…so kudos to you for that!! And as for having Prosecco and Pad Thai – you deserve a high five for that, breakfast of champions 🙂

    The passion mojito looks wicked.

    I LOVE the Liars club with a capital L. Easily the best bar in Manchester.

    • I still need to visit the actual bar. From the cocktails I tried I can tell that they are to be pretty darn special
