If you’re one of those people who like to let their hair down midweek, especially you food industry folk, I have to say Crafty Pig was ‘kickin’ for a Wednesday evening.
Still the same old haunt you know and love, Crafty Pig has just been shown a little bit of TLC since the refurb. It’s still got that relaxed and welcoming feel. It’s just been polished off around the edges.
With its new signage out front, it’s hard not to miss this Oldham Street favourite, but when you walk through the door you’re hit with that same old pub-like ambience and stellar customer service.
Oldham Street has always been one of Manchester’s most popular locations, famous for its record shops, bars and vintage stores that have helped to make the city one of the country’s trendiest places to live.
The night was very relaxed but with a bubbling atmosphere. People chattering away over their Beer of the Week, the new weekly offer available Monday-Thursday when there’s £1 off a selected brew. What’s not to love?
The snack plates and sharers were also making the rounds. These tasty bites were too nice to resist. Twists on timeless taster classics are what make these sharers so fantastic. From honey and balsamic chorizo to crispy coconut prawns, they’re not to be missed at 3 dishes for £10.95.
Dave was spinning some 80s new romantic classics which really added a different vibe to the place – quite refreshing after some of the tunes you’re used to hearing in the Northern Quarter. If it’s music you’re looking for, then Crafty Pig have some offerings from live Acoustic Mondays to Sunday Sessions that are sure to appeal to any music lover.
Everyone is welcome at The Crafty Pig – whether you’re part of the after work crowd, a foodie tempted by the mouthwatering and ever-popular Peri Peri chicken, a group of friends on a night out or just going it solo, their doors are always open.
Sound appealing? Well I’d suggest you get down there. There’s another Workers Wednesday just around the corner.
