    The Bull's head: Friendly Locals

    by Evenith666 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first mention of The Bulls Head is in the 1730's, however the current building was built in the 19th Century. Prior to the construction of the Market Hall in 1861, orators such as Richard Cobden M.P. for Stockport in 1841, spoke from the first floor window to crowds below in the Market Place.

    We called in here for a drink after a wander round Stockport, and was greeted by a very friendly local man at the bar who informed me that there were over 76,000 people burried at St. Marys Church (the actual figure is just over 50,000, but still astonishing given the size of the churchyard!), and also that there used to be a pub close-by where you could get a prostitute and all you could drink for only 3 shillings, a bargain I'm sure you will agree!

    The Stables Cafe at Bramall Hall: Nice cheesecakes!

    by Ines28 Written Sep 12, 2004

    Bramall Hall

    The Stables Cafe is situated in a beautiful surrounding as it belongs to Bramall Hall. It is in a nice courtyard, tables are in- and outside. You can get anything from refreshments to a three course lunch.

    Favorite Dish: We were there in the afternoon and therefore had a piece of cake. The fruit cheesecake was good, price GBP 1,70.

    The Kushoom Koly: Good curry in Heaton Moor!

    A group of 8 of us went to the Kushoom Koly last night (6th May 2012). We didn't know there was a special offer on Sundays of a buffet. All but one of us (the steak & chips man - my Dad!) decided to try the buffet.
    It was small, but there were three starters to choose from plus salad. Then the expected rice and naan bread. The choice of main courses were three chicken dishes (korma, staff and tikka masala), two lamb dishes and a vegetable dish. I heard no complaints what-so-ever around the group. Between us all we tried everything!!
    I had the chicken staff and the chicken tikka masala - both so tasty! The flavours are so different in each dish, I really enjoyed all of the food.

    I love the inside of this resturant. It puts me in mind of photographs I've seen of India - carved wood in intricate detail and beautiful patterns, but it also has a very modern twist with glass artwork hanging on the walls. Everything in the resturant was clean.

    The staff are really friendly; they bend over backwards to help you and make sure you have everything you could possibly want.

    The opening times are:
    Monday-Thursday 5pm-12am
    Friday & Saturday 5pm-1am
    Sunday 3pm-12am

    You can get a full view of the menu with prices on the website listed below.

    The Mouse Trappe: Cheese up, cheese

    Barry and Moira are my two favorite A6ers in Stockport. They have been running their business for 30 years, their building is on the historical landmark register - they are extremely confident in everything they sell. The food is all top flight and it comes with a story. While Subway and Dominos churn out their crap across the street from them, they continue to provide a lovely service and high quality food to the lucky people who stumble in or the patrons they have had since the beginning.

    Barry has tasted everything that he will sell to you (and loves it) - Moira hates the stuffing out of cheese, which seems like a downer for a gal in a cheese shop, but somehow it justs adds to the charm of the place.

    Favorite Dish: The big breakfast - it's the classic english breakfast done classically and spot on. Coffee of the day is always something brilliant and fairly exotic.
    And grab some of their blue cheeses before you go...

    The Didsbury: Brews and Pub Food Classics

    by JamalMorelli Updated Sep 26, 2006

    Grand Pub Culture - The Didsbury
    3 more images

    Great pub food - what can you say? To someone who loves pub food (like me) I would expect laughter if someone started getting emotional and poetically described the flaky yet crispy chips and the sublime fried fish... Rubbish.

    The food rocks. Period. There's a health food store in town you can write poetry in.

    Now, on the other hand, I do enjoy when one waxes poetic on local ales...(more on that throughout my England pages...)

    If someone wants to point out it's not Stockport - congrats, mate. But Didsbury isn't recognized by VT yet and it's close enough.

    Favorite Dish: They have a wide range of pub favorites and they are all good...ask for the local ales (if available)

    It's very nice. Very nice Italian staff. Lovely pizza florentine, y'know, tasy risottos. Modern atmosphere - not old style Italian.

    Quite glamourous. Yeah, it's stylish, that's what it is.

    (edited part where she said I was making her sound like a lunatic)

    That's enough, isn't it.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza florentina. Um, I think I must like the deserts. Very nice soup. Yeah, there's a nice soup.

    The Old Rectory: Great Value

    by Balam Updated Apr 20, 2010

    The Old Rectory
    4 more images

    The building is said to be the finest example of Georgian architecture in the town centre, it was built for the Reverend Samuel Stead in 1744 and replaced a 16th C building. It was the home to Rectors and Bishops until 1965 but was used as an Army Billet during the second world war.
    In the grounds there is an Ice house where ice was collected from frozen ponds during the winter and stored for use in the summer.

    the house is now part of the Premier lodge Hotel group and the building is a great Bar and Restaurant with the interior retaining some great period features. A large conservetory has been added which is the Restaurant area.
    They offer some great 2 for £10 deals on main courses which is what we opted for. I had Italian Chicken which consisted oif 2 breaded chicken breasts in a tomatoe and basil sauce topped with cheese and served with chips and coalslaw. Mick had a Rump steak chips , mushrooms and tomatoe. great value for only £10.

    The service was fast and very friendly and i would certainly recomend The Old Rectory to anybody wishing to eat in Stockport.

    Masterchef Tandoori: Top Curry in Moor Top

    by janiebaxter Written Aug 15, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This gem of an Indian is tucked away in a row of other restaurants and shops and is too easily missed. If it was in Didsbury it would be packed out every night.
    I have recommended this restaurant to many people and all have been very impressed and continue to go back there. It is a family run restaurant and they have year's experience of running a restaurant in the famous curry mile. The staff are really helpful with the menu and suggestions and are very friendly.
    You can also order take out.

    Favorite Dish: I eat a lot of Indian and Nepalese food - where I live in Didsbury we have the best 3 Nepalese restaurants in Manchester within 5 minutes walk.
    So when I tried Masterchef Tandoori I was surprised to find a dish or two that I didn't know of. The best of these is called Pepsila - a mix of chicken and minced lamb with the most beautiful tasty sauce.
    The best starter is the Prawn Puri - a crispy base with lovely fresh prawns in a tangy sauce.
    Attention to detail is always there - service is prompt, plates are always hot and the food is always very hot and made from superfresh ingredients.
    And if you have a big appetite, the portions are huge. I always wish I could fit more food in when I go.

    Fish and Chips: Best Fish and Chips in Stockport

    Can't say too much about Fish and Chips. Except that it is known throughout the area that this is the best place to get it.

    Real old fashioned about the hours as well - 11:30 to 1 then 4:30 - 6:30 - queues can go out into the sidewalks...
