Two of our favourites, Simon Rogan and Aiden Byrne are producing horticultural-inspired menus during the city’s urban gardening festival, Dig The City, which rolls back into town next month.

The theme of this year’s event (August 2-10) is ‘Grow your Own’, so look out for some interesting new menus across the city in honour of the event.

Mr Cooper’s House & Garden and Manchester House are getting involved, offering themed dishes and cocktails to guests. The latter has created three herb garden cocktails specially for Dig the City – Lavender & Elderflower Spritz, Basil Grande and Mint Julep.

Meanwhile, over at House of Fraser, there’s a Secret Garden Party at Tom’s Champagne Bar all week, which gets a Dig makeover featuring a special Lawn Menu and Summer Garden Cocktail Menu – with sharing jugs of Pimms and summery cocktails designed to get you in the festival spirit.
