The Cosy Club
Time Out says
A branch of the popular chain, bringing drinks, food and good times to Corn Exchange.
The Manchester joint is The Cosy Club's tenth outlet, which as a venue boasts dressed stone walls, reclaimed wooden floors, floor to ceiling windows, mahogany panelling, outside seating and plenty of nooks and crannies.
The menu is made up of all the usual suspects borrowing from around the world for popular and well-known dishes such as burgers, sandwiches, paninis, tapas and mains including Thai beef noodle salad, game stew, buttermilk fried chicken and Moroccan tabbouleh, as well as brunch classics likes ham hock hash and creamed scrambled eggs.
This means that it's probably more likely to be the decor that that gives the restaurant any notability than the food itself, as the space is full to bursting point with old-world charm and 'quirk', with framed pictures sprawling across the walls, plush seating and mounted animal heads. A little over-stylised, perhaps, but it certainly provides little more comfort factor than other chains often do.
Just after a drink? The cocktails are separated into long and short drinks, with a maple and pecan old fashioned, rum espresso martini, kir royal, blackberry mojito and a hibiscus and elderflower cosmopolitan providing ample choice - and good reason to park up in one of those leather armchairs.
