Sit up straight and use your knife and fork. St George’s Day is a great excuse to try out some of the best British pubs and restaurants in Manchester. The patron saint of England may not be in the same league as St Patrick when it comes to celebrating his day, but that’s no excuse not to. Here’s our pick of the best places to raise a glass or two and enjoy some great British grub in his name.

Grafene Manchester is the definition of a modern British restaurant. It opened last autumn just off King Street with a name inspired by graphene, the world’s first 2D material isolated at Manchester University. The food here is as unique and as experimental as the concept – contemporary interpretations of traditional British dishes.
