Trip Report Eating in Manchester, Lancaster and the Lakes

A returning Lancastrian that has spent the past six years either abroad, in London or on the "wrong" side of the pennines in Leeds.

After moving back I have visted a number of brilliant places all giving the North a reason to be proud of it's booming food and culture scenes. First of all I would like to recommend The Meeting House restaurant in Lancaster. Alongside a great (and affordable!) wine list, the food is fantastic and very, very local.

When I was there there were Morecambe potted shrimps which are an incredible delicacy, however I think they were a special as they are no longer on the menu. Great relaxed atmosphere, great service, great food. What more could you ask for?

In the Lakes I have to say it's hard to find somewhere to eat, simply due to the fact that every town in the Southern Lake District is crammed with eateries, cafes and cake shops. Far from complain though, I did my best to eat through them all, particular favourites being The Glass House in Ambleside with it's beautiful rustic relaxed ambiance and Foundry 34 in Penrith which I believe is soon to become a hotel too.

As for Manchester, it's a bti more lively there for sure! Make sure to step into the famous Lounge 10 for a taste of extravagant fine dining - to accompany their beautifully prepared and delicious food there is live music and even a magician! I'd never been anywhere like it...

For drinks in Manchester, you can't go far wrong in my opinion than a large tropical-flavoured cocktail you drink while it is set alight by enthusiastic barmen. Hula Bar is one of my all-time favourite places and I seriously recommend a visit. An underground Hawaiian heaven in the heart of Manchester. Brilliant!
