The Albert Square Chop House

Despite a more industrial aesthetic than the old chop houses nearby (Sam's and Mr Thomas's - they're all in the same group), there's still plenty of history at this restaurant at Memorial Hall. The menu is again fiercely focused on British dishes, with potted rabit, homity pie and Barnsley chops some of the nostalgiac options on offer. The fixed price menu is great value.

This restaurant is very centrally located - on the corner of Albert Square. The entrance is up a few steps to a nice bar space with a mixture of sofas and chairs. The restaurant is downstairs, it looks impressive as you descend, an industrial sized room filled with fully set dining tables, booths and banquettes. The windows are high and the walls are lined with photos of Manchester luminaries. 

The menu is traditional British. The corned beef hash cake is a great starter, meaty and comforting. I had a rib eye steak and it was flavourful and tender, one of the best steaks that I have had. The steak and kidney pie was reportedly great too, done in the old fashioned way with suet in the pastry.

The wine list looked good, the house rose was excellent. The service was very good too. We ate early, 6pm, so we managed to get in without booking, but it was quite full by the time we left, so I would imagine it would need to be booked if you wanted to eat at a more popular time. 

We thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back next time we are in Manchester.
