We love a good pub and Manchester certainly boasts some pretty cosy spots for a pint. Adding to Manchester’s impressive list of beautiful pubs is The Wishing Well, a new gastro-style pub opening in Didsbury Village this April.
Just a short walk away from green spaces like Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens, The Wishing Well is set to become a great drinking and dining spot for ramblers, dog-walkers, families and meeting up with friends. Diners can expect traditional, well-loved British dishes using local, high quality produce with firm favourites and pub classics on the menu.
Choose from the likes of ham, eggs and chips, accompanied by a roast pineapple salsa; steak pie and proper mash; fish and chips with homemade tartare sauce and mushy peas; a delicious sea bass linguine; as well as a well stocked grill serving locally sourced ribeye, sirloin and fillet steak. All rounded off with a classic dessert selection and Sunday menu featuring a classic Sunday roast dinner.
The gastro-style pub in Didsbury will be open seven days a week from April 1 with an a la carte menu and children’s menu available, alongside a bottomless brunch offering on a Saturday. The Wishing Well will also host a live music schedule featuring local musicians, supporting the wider Didsbury arts community as well as a selection of events to launch in due course.
Revamping the former site of The Botanist in Didsbury, the venue has a brand new look and feel with a number of cosmetic changes taking place. Visitors can expect the addition of hidden TV screens to allow key games and occasionally live sports to be shown, plus lovely interior features like chandeliers and cosy fireplaces and additional outdoor space created for the summer.
Co-Owner of The Wishing Well, Youssef Loutfi, said: “We can’t wait to be part of the community in Didsbury Village, it’s such a vibrant place and the locals we’ve been chatting with whilst we’ve been building the pub have been so friendly. We’ve put a lot of effort into making sure we’ve got something for everyone and we just can’t wait to open the doors now.”
