Noble Rot

This was my third visit to Noble Rot. I’d already fallen in love with the place on my first visit (here); had another great meal on the second but, this, the third, exceeding my already high expectations.

As part of his ‘end of year review’, @StickyWalnut (aka Gary Usher) tweeted “Hispi became better than its owner. It basically smashed 2017 in the face & said look at us, we’ll show you how to bistro!

As my local, I also love Hispi (if you’re ever in Manchester, you’ll fine none better) but this post is about Noble Rot… and they’ll show you how to wine bar!

Visiting with my wife, eldest stepdaughter and her girlfriend, we had a wonderful evening. The service was spot on; the atmosphere: cozy, convivial and cool; the food, sublime.

Every ingredient is selected for quality, which shines through in every mouthful. Prepared with understanding and skill, the cooking successfully manages to be robust, rustic yet refined at the same time.
