Dinner at the Dockyard

Tucked away at the bottom of Spinning Fields is one of my favourite places to eat in Manchester – the Dockyard. Although it is at the end of Spinning Fields it is still only a 5 minute walk from Deansgate. It’s a fairly newish addition to the area, it first got some popularity in Media City and they then opened a branch up in the city centre in 2015. The décor is “industrial meets chic” and it’s quite a large venue. So one thing to note about the Dockyard is it’s big on craft beer. There is a huge selection of lagers and IPAs to choose from, enough for any craft beer aficionado. But for those who don’t like craft beer you also have your spirits, with a decent selection of Gin, Rum, Whisky, etc. So plenty of alcohol for all! Great news right?

Okay so now onto the food. Let me break it down for you, you have your sandwiches, your burgers and your hotdogs, and you also got your chicken wings, BBQ ribs and pies. Dockyard are actually quite well known for having a good pie but I’ve yet to try one! I have tried a few of their sandwiches and their burgers, the last time I visited I got the Smoker (pictured below) which is buttermilk chicken, crisp pancetta, smoked mature cheddar, beef tomato, baby gem, smoked BBQ sauce and chipotle ketchup on brioche. All of the burgers are serves with fries or sweet potato fries – I always go for sweet potato cos, y’know, I’m healthy (hemhem).

IMHO: If you’re looking for a great lunch at a great price (roughly around £7/8 a meal) then head on down there! They’re by the River Irwell and have a large outside seating area which is perfect for those rare warm sunny days we get in Manchester.
