Next week, a new public house & grill, The Lamb of Tartary, will officially open its doors in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

Opening in the former Cottonopolis site on Newton Street on Fri 1 Mar, The Lamb comes from the team behind the award-winning Edinburgh Castle pub in Ancoats; with a new ‘All Day Dining’ menu curated by award-winning executive chef Shaun Moffat.

Derived from an old tale, where people believed that lambs came from the cotton plant, the name of the new venue pays homage to The Lamb being born out of Cottonopolis.

Ahead of the new launch, the Grade II listed building has received a fresh fit-out. Designed by Directors Nick and Hayley Muir the space has been transformed with a new light and airy feel, ornate panelling, exposed flooring, seated booths, and filled with leafy green plants.

The new ‘All Day Dining’ menu features a selection of small plates including Atlantic prawn cocktail & melba toast, burrata, crown prince pumpkin & green sauce and an array of meat and fish fresh from the grill, including Otterburn Farm pork available in bacon collar & loin chop cuts and Cornish lobster with Hollandaise.

The brunch menu will also be available from 12pm – 3pm on Saturdays. This includes dishes like bacon chop, fried egg & chips, wild mushrooms, lake’s fried egg on toast and English muffin, potato rosti, fried egg, cheese & tomato jam.

A carefully crafted cocktail list has been designed to pair perfectly with the new food menu, including The Lamb’s own takes on classics such as the Gimlet, Old Fashioned and the Sidecar.

The new bar will also have 24 different beers on tap, including local favourites Manchester Union Lager and Cask Beer from Buxton Brewery and Mobberley Brewhouse.
