A very grown-up restaurant in Manchester’s Northern Quarter


Manchester’s Northern Quarter is famous for its Bohemian vibes and many bars, cafés, music and record shops situated north of the city. TNQ Resturant & Bar is a hidden gem of a modern British/European restaurant situated right in the heart of the area, once a storage warehouse for the old Smithfield fish markets, but now a humble, modern dining room with rustic wooden floors and floor-to-ceiling windows, offering a view of the Grade I-listed Smithfield fish market facade.


This is a thriving, independent neighbourhood restaurant, showcasing a true taste of Manchester by offering visitors honest ‘Northern Soul’ food, superb wines and stellar service. With a reputation for quality food and service, the restaurant boasts many accolades including inclusion in the Michelin Guide to Great Britain and Ireland 2011 and 2012. This independent restaurant holds 58-covers and prides itself on using locally sourced ingredients in all of its dishes.


TNQ Restaurant & Bar creates seasonal, locally-sourced, gourmet dishes and homemade desserts using only the finest ingredients the North West & the British Isles has to offer, and infused with flavours of the Med and beyond. Dishes are prepared daily by head chef, Anthony Fielden. Anthony has developed a prolific portfolio of experience at some of Manchester’s finest restaurants, and has now put TNQ Restaurant & Bar firmly on the north-west food map. And to compliment the exquisite taste of fine dining, they offer an extensive drinks menu and impressive wine list.


What’s more, they have recently launched a Dads Eat Free campaign meaning Dads qualify to eat free if a photo of their Sunday roast is posted on Instagram, using a number of hashtags, including #sundayroastmanchester and #tnqrestaurantmanchester and @tnqrestaurant. Once the photo has been posted, Dad will receive a complimentary, locally sourced, Sunday roast, from one of the Northern Quarter’s longest established, relaxed dining venues.


The restaurant will also host an gourmet evening on 22nd May 2013, dedicated ntirely to Italy, with beautiful Italian dishes and delicious wines.

    So let me guess. That piece of toast with cress and a tomato…£6? £8? And you think it constitutes a lunch perhaps? Why “grown up”? – what on earth is that supposed to mean??
