Visitors to the
Manchester, on the Bridgewater,
at the bottom end of the Rochdale Canal, will know that the large pub building, on the ,
next to the Middle Warehouse, has been rescued by Rob Broadbent and his team. It is now open as a busy upmarket pub, called
The Wharf, with good food and well cared for beer. There is more information on the very interesting web site... Slate Wharf
The Wharf is up for an award and would like our support...
The Wharf has been nominated in the ‘Newcomer of the Year’ category of the Manchester Food and Drink Awards, part of the annual food and drink festival.
There are two stages to the judging process: firstly they are visited by a mystery diner, who will assess the quality, flavour and presentation of food and drink, value for money, and the standard of the furnishings and finishes etc.
No, I don't know how you get to be a mystery diner...
The second part of the judging process is where they need our help. You can vote on the Food and Drink Festival awards page here:
You just add your email, scroll down to the 'Newcomer of the Year' section, and enter your vote, then click on the link in the confirmation email you will receive.
When so many canal side pubs have disappeared I think it is right to say Thank You when this one has been rescued, and is being run so well.
