Suburban Urmston is the unlikely home of Isinglass, one of Manchester's most impressive restaurants. The name refers to a gelatin-like substance made from fish bladders used to clarify beer and wine - but don't let that put you off.
This idiosyncratic establishment takes the oft-empty promise of using only local ingredients, and shows what can be achieved when experts hold themselves to it.
Salad leaves from Chat Moss, rich Dunham Massey ice-cream, meat from Knutsford… the menu doubles up as a local geography guide. Most impressive of all, the evident quality comes at very affordable prices.
