Market House Altrincham has become one of the most unique places to eat in Manchester, with its recent resurgence proving popular with foodies not just from the south west Mancunian town but from much further afield — Altrincham Market where it's based is a previous winner of Observer Food Monthly's market of the year.
The premise is simple, with several of the best restaurants in Manchester invited into the recently renovated Altrincham Market Hall on a daily basis, allowing customers the pick of some of the region's finest cuisine. Staple favourites at Market House Altrincham include pizza enthusiasts Honest Crust, whose margherita is second to none, while alcoholic refreshment is provided by an array of Manchester craft beer specialists including Blackjack Brewery.
A bustling, friendly environment — the Market House takes no prior bookings so try to get there early ahead of peak times — the huge hall is both pet and kid friendly, meaning you'll likely be sharing one of the venue's sizeable wooden tables with families and those taking a day out to a remarkable regional food spot.
