Manchester Food Guide: Best Beer Gardens

Manchester Food Guide: Best Beer Gardens

Lockdown is weeks away from its long awaited end and weā€™ve got a whole lot of catching up in beer gardens in Manchester to do, safely distanced. And what better place than the classic outside drinking spaces in the beautiful city of Manchester. Outdoor drinking and dining is safer than indoor, so it makes sense that weā€™ll flock to the venues with the best beer gardens and outdoor drinking areas. The city centre hasn’t been famed for its outdoor spaces, but thanks to a lot of road closures last summer there are a lot more pop-up beer gardens to explore this year.Ā 

The Northern Quarter

The Northern Quarter, in particular, has seen some forward-thinking relaxation of the rules, meaning the roads are closed off as mentioned before so we can drink outside, often underneath covering to protect us from the unpredictable Manchester rain. On Edge Street, Common is now back open and you’ll also find Yard & Coop, Luck Lust Liquor & Burn and Home Sweet Home along the same stretch. On Thomas Street, it’s a strip including Bay Horse Tavern, Terrace, Wolf at the Door, Fierce Bar and Cane & Grain.

Escape to Freight Island

Its outside space is now back open seven days a week with availability disappearing fast already so you better be quick to book. You will find it at Depot Mayfield, which has previously been home to the VIP Village at Manchester Pride Live and to street food enterprise Grub. Street food traders will include Baratxuri, Belzan Pasta Kitchen, Madre, Mi+Pho, Voodoo Rays, Patty Queen, Krum and a brand-new sweet addition, Sundae – Escape to Freight Islandā€™s in-house ice cream brand.Ā 

The Oast HouseĀ 

One of the city centre’s largest and most popular beer gardens, The Oast House is all so back open with its amazing seating area for all weather. The Spinningfields bar is open for bookings for its outdoor terrace and is promising a summer of fun. After a major revamp and remodel last year, the busy courtyard now features two new outdoor bars with their own toilets and a wooden canopy with heaters and a fire pit.
