Picnic and Pimms – A Trip to Lyme Park, Manchester

Friday Night Al Fresco – A Review of Southern Eleven Manchester

Southern Eleven is easily in my top ten places to eat…ever! It’s a winner every time and my go-to place when I have visitors.It oozes comfortable sophistication, in a buzzing atmosphere in Spinningfields, central Manchester.
It’s not your average diner food or setting, instead it’s a cool cocktail bar and restaurant serving-up gastronomic delights with an open kitchen and a seriously stylish interior.You look around and you’re surrounded by young-professionals, families, first-daters, girls-night-outers and regulars – this place has a lot of regulars.
What I’m saying is, it’s a mixed-crowd as everyone loves Southern Eleven and everyone fits in. It’s a pleaser on every level. This is basically because the food is out-standing. It’s authentic, careful and delicious. The owners and chefs take great pride in making sure they get everything right, from the mouth-watering menu, locally-sourced produce, authentic cooking techniques and unique twists like the ‘Shake your own cocktails’. It’s a fun place to be, with prompt service and an effortlessly cool vibe.
