Bringing the ‘glamour of Manchester’ with its eclectic interiors, visitors will find photo-ops aplenty with its Instagrammable carousel horses, hanging foliage and brightly coloured booths – all complimented by neon signs highlighting slogans such as ‘don’t be antisocial’ and the very Mancunian ‘proper mint mate’.
Acting as the perfect place to gather come early morning and nightfall, Prestwich Social welcomes guests all. day. long – whether it’s a strong coffee that tickles your fancy, or a boozier dinner with friends after work. Serving a lengthy menu of drinks for all kinds of gatherings, guests can get stuck into a mouthwatering selection of smoothies and shakes, alongside teas and coffees of all varieties, before hitting the many, many cocktails later on.
Consisting of a classic list including tipples such as Espresso Martini, Aperol Spritz, Pina Colada and more, guests can get through the selection of twenty different cocktails, alongside delicious G&Ts and, of course, the venue’s showstopping martini trees that are perfect for sharing with friends.
Food-wise, things remain just as versatile, with a seemingly endless menu of breakfast, small plates, salads, burgers, grilled meats and more up for grabs – with highlights including fish and chips, stacked burgers, rib-eye steaks, and peri-peri chicken.

Becoming quite the self-sufficient ‘hub’, Prestwich has been blessed with a number of fantastic independent businesses over the years bringing the type of service you’d expect from Manchester city centre – including new kid on the block Triple B, Solita (who departed the town last year after being acquired by new owners), OSMA and Folk.
