Is this mega brunch platter Manchester’s ultimate hangover cure this party season?

Quarter House is the home of BBQ - but they also do an epic brunch

A laid back bar in the heart of the Northern Quarter, Quarter House is known for serving up some of the best BBQ food in the city.

Food comes from the award-winning BBQ and street food company, Love from the Streets, with a menu ranging from towering burgers and tasty tacos to grilled wings and seriously good smokehouse trays.

The pitmaster and chefs smoke all their meat in-house in small batches, done the right way with wood, charcoal and live fire, served with a range of unique homemade sauces.

Inside, the Stevenson Square venue is all about comfy booths and a playlist of indie, rock and all-time anthems to keep you entertained.

So when we heard they were now serving a brunch menu at weekends until 3pm, we couldn’t wait to try it out.

The menu is packed with dishes ranging from the classic – a full breakfast or veggie breakfast, succulent Scottish smoked salmon with chive cream cheese on sourdough toast, eggs benedict or florentine – to the more unusual.

How about poached eggs with tender pulled smoked brisket and a spicy sriracha hollandaise on toasted sourdough? Or own-recipe crisp, golden fried chicken with sauteed baby spinach, punchy kimchi aioli and toasted sesame seeds?

You’ll also find proper bacon or sausage butties served on an oven bottom muffin, with smoked squash and sweet potato sausages as an inspired meat-free option.

If you’re really hungry, though – or hungover, we won’t judge – then you need to take a look at the One Night Stand.

This mammoth platter has everything you could possibly desire for a beast of a brunch, all piled high on one heaving tray. 

There’s three rashers of fried bacon, three pork sausages, three eggs, three hash browns, tomatoes, mushrooms, and three slices of sourdough toast with butter.

But that’s not all. 

You’ll also find trays of classic smoked pulled pork and oak smoked pulled brisket, perfectly spiced and cooked low and slow until amazingly tender.

And, if that isn’t enough, you’ll also get two pieces of juicy JFC fried chicken and a pot of famous chicken gravy. 

Gravy for breakfast? Well, this is Manchester, after all.

The whole lot will set you back just £30, which is a bit of a bargain given the quantity and quality of food on offer.

This is a One Night Stand you definitely won’t regret.
