Home to a number of independent spots that have inevitably made their way into the city centre, too, Altrincham is a diverse place to grab a bite to eat – with plenty of cuisines to choose from. So if you’re planning a day out in the lovely South Manchester suburb sometime soon, you’ll want to bookmark our guide to the best restaurants in Altrincham.
1. Sugo Pasta Kitchen
Comfort food at its finest. Sugo Pasta Kitchen knows how to fill a tum properly, serving up huge bowls of pasta that are absolutely packed with meaty toppings such as pork, beef, king prawns, and beautiful Italian cheeses. It’s not just the mains that are drool-worthy either, with proper Italian grub like arancini, lamb meatballs with ragu and, of course, Affogato to finish. Sugo Pasta Kitchen, 22 Shaw’s Rd, Altrincham, WA14 1QU.
If you’ve ever dreamed of a nice restaurant serving toast, this is it. Everything is served on toast (duh), with posh toppings such as Korean BBQ beef, curried cod, and even truffled cheese. The atmosphere is warm and cosy, providing the perfect spot to enjoy a proper British institution. Toast, 63 Stamford New Rd, Altrincham, WA14 1DS.
Porta offers up beautiful tapas from brunch until late night, with gorgeous, warm surroundings to enjoy while you’re there. The menu is super affordable with prices starting at just £2.70, and there are some lovely wines to choose from which pair up perfectly with certain menu items. Porta, 50 Greenwood St, Altrincham, WA14 1RZ.
American-themed with, you guessed it, rustic decor, Rustic is a great spot for an easy burger – and with a diverse menu featuring the usual faves, it pretty much suits everyone. Chow down on slider burgers, tacos, hot dogs and loaded fries, with other meaty dishes including wings, ribs and juicy burgers. Rustic, 41 Stamford New Rd, Altrincham, WA14 1EB.
5. Tre Ciccio
Alty’s answer to the Neapolitan pizza trend that’s completely swept Manchester, Tre Ciccio is inspired by the Campania region of Italy, serving up authentic, doughy pizzas and roast chicken diavola. The menu is pretty tough to choose from given that everything sounds (and smells) delicious, with antipasti options that are well worth the few extra bites. Tre Ciccio, 4a Moss Ln, Altrincham, WA14 1BA.
Evuna is a city centre fave, and luckily for Alty dwellers, they can get a taste of that delicious, authentic Spanish tapas, too. The decor is typically Spanish, with a beautiful imported wine list to accompany their uber tasty grub. It’s difficult to make recommendations on their menu given everything is so divine, but if we had to, it’d be the red wine chorizo and the slow-cooked pork cheeks. Evuna, 84, 86 Stamford New Rd, Altrincham, WA14 1BS.
7. Altrincham Market
Alty’s answer to Mackie Mayor (and actually the first of the pair), Altrincham Market houses a number of independent food vendors, which you may already be familiar with if you’ve visited Mackie Mayor before. There’s so much to choose from, and thanks to the market-style layout of the foodie spot, you can pick and choose bits and bobs from each. Current vendors include Picos Tacos, Tender Cow, and Honest Crust – among many, many more. Altrincham Market, Greenwood St, Altrincham, WA14 1SA.
WowYauChow is not only super satisfying to say, but it’s the perfect spot if you’re in the mood for Chinese comfort food. The vibe is eclectic yet super modern, while the food sticks to the classics – really delivering on ‘British Chinese’ combos. Enjoy small plates such as crispy duck nachos, fill up on bao buns, or even try out their Chinese loaded fries. WowYauChow, 59 Stamford New Rd, Altrincham, WA14 1DS.
