Review on The Creameries
The Creameries is a gem of a neighbourhood destination, occupying the end terrace on a small shopping parade in leafy Chorlton, a suburb of Manchester. The former Edwardian dairy has been given a new lease of life by Mary-Ellen McTague, a former sous chef at Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck restaurant, who was also was head chef and proprietor of Aumbry in Manchester, for five years until the restaurant closed in 2014. She is joined in the enterprise by baker Sophie Yeoman and designer Soo Wilkinson and it's already scooped the Best Newcomer and the Sustainability award at the 21st Manchester Food and Drink Festival.
Featuring an open plan kitchen, at the heart of the restaurant is their bread oven so that diners have the opportunity to engage with the chefs. Children are also made very welcome and have their own play area for art, playing and reading. Simply furnished, it's bathed in natural light from the skylight and walls are decorated with hanging plants.
The kitchen serves delicious freshly baked bread, homemade butter, fresh curds and British and Irish cheeses, as well as lunch and evening menus, all based on locally sourced produce and ethically sourced meat, fish and seafood. To accompany the food the wine list focuses on low intervention producers, and they also host special events such as wine tastings and cookery classes.
