50% off at Annies

Annies is somewhat of a legend in the city of Manchester, partially because the restaurant is owned by none other than Coronation Street actress Jennie McAlpine and her partner. Located just off St Ann’s Square in the Royal Exchange building, Annies boasts a tranquil setting in town for a delicious meal.

Focussing on keeping things simple and celebrating the classic dishes of the area, Annie’s is all about good old fashioned home cooked food and friendly service.

Diners will find a range of classic Mancunian dishes to choose from on the menu at Annies, using fresh, locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. The Lancashire rarebit starter is always a popular dish, comprising of a toasted bloomer topped with cheese, mustard and ale and accompanied by red onion chutney.

Annies hotpot is a much-loved main course with succulent lamb and vegetables topped with a crunchy layer of sliced potato and served with red cabbage, seasonal vegetables and crusty bread. The grill dishes up some superb steaks too including an incredibly succulent fillet steak with flat mushrooms, tomato and hand cut chips.

Annies is a lovely dining room offering style and comfort in equal measures. Staff are warm, friendly and very welcoming to each and every diner. A popular choice amongst Corrie fans naturally but generally an all round lovely place to eat, Annies is certain to be a Manchester stalwart for many years to come and with its central location, it’s a great choice for anyone visiting Manchester.

    Visited Annies last Saturday as accepts taste card on a Saturday.. many places don't. What a find!! The service was excellent with all staff friendly happy and accommodating. The menu was a mix of home cooked northern favourites to specials for all occasions. Upstairs offers a bar.. bar meals and afternoon tea with easy chairs. The restaurant is comfortable..easy music.. tastefully decorated and twinkly lights. We enjoyed a bottle of red pinot grigio and had a delicious meal for an impressive price. What a gem of a place and will most definately return.. a new favourite of mine.. thank you..my sister and I.. first meet in 44 years.. made some good memories.. thank you.. Jane and Julie "
