These brothers from Bury are bringing their grandad’s 50-year old sausage recipe to Hatch


Hatch on Oxford Road is one of the best places in the city to discover new street food.

Its alumni include the likes of Holy Crab, Blue Caribou Canteen and Firebird Hope – all of whom have gone on to set up permanent sites elsewhere in the city.

Every few months, it sees a rotation in some of its street food traders – and we get very excited waiting for the new menus to be revealed.

Creating a stir this week is Bury-based sausage connoisseurs Grandad’s Sausages, who’ve just joined the ranks of independent shipping containers assembled under the Mancunian Way.

Now run by two brothers, and started by their grandad, Bernard, Grandad’s Sausages have been making artisan bangers for the people of Manchester for over 50 years.

As young lads, the brothers would always pester their mother for ‘grandad’s sausages’ and now they are carrying on his legacy.

All dogs come served on brioche bread with their own specially-made beer onions, and chips are available on the side.

Dog choices are all £6 and range from classic to spicy (sriracha mayo, spicy ketchup, roquito peppers and jalapenos), to currywurst (curry ketchup, masala powder, sliced pickle), Coney island (sauerkraut, mustard mayo and sliced pickle) and halloumi.

Chips start from £3 and can be ordered classic, with salt and pepper seasoning or currywurst style.

Other new traders confirmed to be joining Hatch this week are Portuguese and Brazilian street food traders KBOM, food truck The Golden Nugget, and vegan and veggie specialists The Veggie Deli.
