Working with site owners, The Mayfield Partnership, the site has been increased in size by 50 per cent creating space for additional street food traders, a second bar, dedicated kids play area and more seating.

Mayfield Gatehouse is widely regarded as Manchester’s best beer garden and this will be the premier location this summer for after work pints on a Friday, for all your family eating out on Saturday and your laid back vegan brunches every single Sunday.

Top class street food will continue to be the star of the show with more traders than ever before.

Friday will have six street-food chefs while Saturday will boast eight, made up of the classic GRUB regular traders including What’s Your Beef, The Ottomen, Chou Choux Patisserie, Parmstar, and Bakeorama.

These regulars will trade alongside an array of 100 per cent brand new, debut GRUB traders made up of new local food heroes and never seen before out-of-town guest traders.

You can look forward to some fine burgers from Wagyu Lookin’ At, authentic South Indian cuisine from Dosa Love, smashing American comfort food from Redheads Mac-n-Cheese, rustic Italian piadina from Casa Rustica, Japanese okinomiyaki from Osaka Local and some of the best vegan Mexican food in the UK from Club Mexicana.

As always great effort will be put into curating exciting, varied cuisines as inclusively as possible catering every week for vegetarians and vegans.

Alongside the existing bar pouring 12 keg lines and four cask lines of the best beer in Manchester and the north and the usual top quality wines, ciders and soft drinks, a second express can bar is in the works.

This will be stocked with fantastic cans and bottles full of smashing local beer, lovely cider and even a specially produced new line of boozy sodas from local pop producer, Steep Soda.

As for local beers it doesn’t get any more local than new brewery Manchester Union Lager which will be providing the house lager which is brewed so close it can almost be rolled down to the bar.

GRUB opens its doors for the summer from 3rd May 2019. What this space for more details.
