A traditional Turkish eatery has opened its doors at Redrock – offering an array of modern and traditional dishes to the people of Stockport.
The much anticipated Yellow Hammer has opened on the Underbanks. Located in a building recently restored this new bakery come pottery studio is already selling out, creating queues and adding more bustle to Lower Hillgate.
What to expect ?
Sam Buckley, Head chef of Where The Light Gets In has teamed up with head baker Rosie Wilkes and artist Joe Hartley to create a new flexible space offering a variety of bakes, ceramic shapes, and other interesting workshops and events.
Expect to see daily drops of sourdough, baguettes, and other baked goods. The ever-changing offering is fantastic and there is always something new and interesting to try. Yellow Hammer will be soon offering wine and other interesting experiences in the evenings so keep your eyes on their socials!
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.
Dr Feelgood’s also does food with an in-house team of cooks, bakers and deep fat friars. The food offering ranges from interesting pizzas, huge burgers and wings, wings and more wings. There are a number of vegan options too – something we are yet to try but it’s on our to do list!
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.
