We have a new contender for our fave all-day drinking and dining destination – The Refinery Spinningfields. With sophisticated yet welcoming interiors, an impeccable collection of creative cocktails and a delicious seasonal menu, the stylish bar and restaurant is the first Drake & Morgan venture into Manchester’s cosmopolitan drinking and dining scene.
Those looking to brave the elements, can take their masterfully made cocktails to the extensive terrace, complete with faux-fur throws and cosy hot water bottles. When things heat up, simply lounge back on deep-set banquettes and drink in the sunshine with a crisp glass of wine in hand.
Arguably Manchester’s very-best mixologists can be found and stirring a collection of globally-inspired cocktails every night of the week, sure to impress even the most seasoned connoisseurs. Signature sips include the colour-changing La Magia (Don julio tequila, lime, butterfly pea tea and agave); Candy Shop Sour (Sipsmith gin, rhubarb and custard liqueur, lemon juice); and the warming Gingerbread Man (Ketel one vodka, gingerbread syrup, lime and apricot). Classic concoctions and zero proofs are also made with precision.
with a 40 plus-strong wine list, including over 20 available by the glass, they knew how to win our hearts from the offer. Selected from the most exciting up-and-coming vineyards around the world, you’re sure to find the perfect glass every time.
No newbie is complete without the foodie offering being up to scratch, and this sure doesn’t disappoint! From smart business breakfasts and laid-back weekend brunches, through to leisurely lunches and intimate dinner dates, The Refinery’s all-day menu is a winner for sure. Early risers can fuel their day with freshly-baked pastries; eggs any style and a refined Full English with all the familiar favourites. Complete the table with a smooth and rich coffee or vitamin-packed smoothie – there’s no better way to start the day.
Come lunch or dinner, match your chosen cocktail to an array of small plates – ideal for sharing. Graze on the likes of salt and pepper squid with lemon mayonnaise and prawn lollipops with sweet chilli and soy; or indulge with friends over mezze and charcuterie boards bursting with flavour. Larger options include vibrant superfood salads and brilliant burgers that sit alongside a sensational selection of prime steaks and seasonal Drake & Morgan favourites such as braised beef shin with polenta and butternut squash risotto. Make sure to leave room for decadent desserts of chocolate orange jaffa cake and crunchy pecan tart finished with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Sundays, oh Sundays! We know it’s all about lazy brunches with Bloody Marys and plenty of roasties! This doesn’t disappoint!
