While its reputation as a global foodie paradise is no secret, Manchester is naturally at its culinary best when diners can bring their own booze. As you’d expect, there are more than enough establishments to make our list.

Here are some of the region’s best BYOB restaurants.

Hawksmoor | City Centre

An ostensibly unlikely entry as one of Manchester’s higher-end restaurants, Hawksmoor reinforces its commitment to unpretentious luxury by encouraging diners to pair the immaculate cuts of steak with their own wine, all day every Monday. Whether it’s an Echo Falls miniature or a jeroboam of Bollinger, you can bring any accompaniment you want for a £5 corkage fee.

184-186 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 3WB, Tel: 0161 836 6980
Double Zero | Chorlton

South Manchester’s hub of handmade Neapolitan pizza, Double Zero operates a no-strings BYOB policy for guests who want to chase the wood-fired thin crust majesty with Riesling, rum or anything in between.

368 Barlow Moor Rd, Chorlton, Manchester, M21 8AZ, Tel: 0161 943 8980
Yara | Whitefield, Altrincham, Cheadle and Chorlton

Beloved across the region, Yara serves the best in Levantine cuisine with a longstanding BYOB policy for wine and beer across all its restaurants. From Bury to Cheshire, diners can gorge on wonderfully affordable classic Lebanese and Syrian dishes and soak up the endless pita without incurring a hefty drinks tab.
