There are a great many wining and dining places in the vicinity, in the Peak District National Park and in urban situations, like the Chinese quarter in central Manchester.
You have a range of experiences across Bistros, Cafes, Country Pubs, Ethnic and Fine Dining. The danger of listing any is that management and ownership can change, so an average venue becomes one of the best and another slips down in its standards. Locals are invariably a good source of very current guidance and review sites can also assist.
A range of dining experiences including those with outside dining and close to tourist spots.
A host of café and bistro venues that partly focus on the ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ heritage, including Sid’s Café. Plenty of different venues close to key tourist spots and some borrowing names from ‘Last of the Summer Wine’.
Peak district - Country pubs and Tea Rooms
There are many very good country pubs and tea rooms spread around the Peak District and you can sometimes encounter these in some unexpected remoter locations. The Pennine Way and other walking routes mean that venues can sometimes be in remoter spots but visited by a great many walkers etc.
Manchester and urban
Greenfield station has regular trains running into central Manchester giving very wide dining and fine dining options. Remember though to be clear on last train times and variations at weekends, Bank holidays and from maintenance work.
