We have put together a list of 21 things to do in Stockport Town Centre! Jump in to find out more!
The latest addition to Redrock is Stockport’s first Turkish restaurant. Afiyet stands on its own as an exciting new dining option for local residents and visitors from further afield. The interior space is absolutely incredible. The use of tiles, high end finishes, and clever lighting creates an amazing atmosphere for eating, drinking, meeting and more. We know it is odd to mention but the toilets are absolutely amazing!! Classssyyy much!
We asked one of the owners why they decided to set up in Stockport – Murat told us “we see a future in Stockport, we can see the positive change happening, we want to be part of the community”. It is great that the Stockport brand is growing and more businesses like Afiyet choose our town to be their home!
The space seats over 100 covers and offers a large varied menu that caters to all kinds of dietary requirements. There is a number of Vegan and veggie options on the menu including a whole host of vegan mezze platters. For the carnivores the options are endless including a golden steak, lamb shanks, wraps, a selection of seafood and more.
Despite the luxurious nature of Afiyet the prices really are reasonable depending on what you order. The menu is that diverse you can have a more affordable evening out or go all out (golden steak, we are looking at you). The wine list has been curated with care and the cocktail menu really has a great selection. Afiyet is not just an eatery, there is a bar area where you can go in for a cheeky drink or you can sit outside amongst the beautiful plants and brightly coloured umbrellas!
Afiyet is currently open after a very soft launch. When fully open the restaurant will be open for lunch 12-4 and dinner 4-10 Monday to Sunday.
We absolutely loved our visit and cannot wait to get back! As always, it is great to see more food options in our town centre! All we have to do is support them!
Stockport’s food scene continues to progress forward with the opening of The Mekong Cat. Located on Lower Hillgate, near the entrance to the Underbanks this restaurant’s main focus is on creating real and authentic Southeast Asian Noodles.
It’s not hipster, nor fashionable it is about creating something real that connects to the heritage of the owners. Good food always comes from people who create it out of passion and it is clear that is what is happening here.
The space itself is designed to feel easy and comfortable so that the main show is the food itself. Their goal is to introduce a new type of food to the pallets of the surrounding area and beyond – and we think they absolutely will. There is disability access on site and the best place to park is around the corner in front of Agapanthus Interiors.
The photos below show Beef Pho cooked for 15 hours and a Vegan King Oyster Mushroom Bahn Mi with cashew and mushroom pate, pickled carrots and Mooli. The pictures speak for themselves! We didn’t get chance to try to the food but the cacophony of smells were to die for!
Next time you are heading in to Stockport makes sure you visit The Mekong Cat and show them your support – a follow on social media will help them too!
Dr Feelgood’s is the latest establishment brought to the Stockport food and drink scene by Joseph Patton – the man behind The Cracked Actor, The Glass Spider and Breaking Glass Bottle.
As the town centre night time economy continues to flourish there was an obvious gap for live music venues.
Dr Feelgood’s, based in the marketplace, answers the call and has set up an almost Northern Quarter style gig venue. Upon entry there is an instant feeling that connects you to the atmosphere of the Ruby Lounge in Manchester.
Nothing fancy, neon lights, concrete floors, open brick, dimmed lights and glam rock tracks. The steel tables look they have been designed to withstand the weight of people stood on them screaming the chorus to a variety of Queen tracks.
There are also a number of vintage style games to play including football tables and pin ball machines – something the town centre does not offer anywhere else.
The addition of bifold doors and outdoor seating makes the space feel open, spacious and transparently lively.
On to the good stuff.. The drinks – there is a variety of edgy beers on offer including the likes of Tiny Rebel, Pump up the Jam and Rattle Snake. There is also a classic gig favourite on draft, Red Stripe – it’s one of those beers that means you know you are about to see a live band.
For those looking for something a little less hoppy there is an extensive collection of eccentric cocktails including the Funky Flamingo.
If you are looking for a night of great music, interesting drinks and a solid atmosphere Dr Feelgood’s is going to be your new home. We guarantee it.
