New pop-up brings top Manchester chefs to city centre garden neighbourhood

The innovative dishes call on their experience at Mana, Where The Light Gets In, Manchester House and Wolf At The Door

Manchester restaurant Tine has joined Le Social as the host of the third pop-up within garden neighbourhood Kampus, taking over the Bungalow, the striking building on stilts, until the end of September. 

Tine is the brainchild of James Lord and Josh Shanahan, a pair of ambitious Mancunian chefs with more than 20 years’ experience between them in some of the most prestigious restaurants of Manchester.

The talented pair created Tine with the purpose of creating progressive and innovative dishes calling on their experience at Mana, Where The Light Gets In, Manchester House and Wolf At The Door.


The pop-up at Kampus, a new neighbourhood built around a garden developed by Capital&Centric and HBD, is serving unique umami tweaks on traditional British cuisine, inspired by the best produce the British Isles and Ireland has to offer. 

Offering an exclusive set menu of five courses, Tine has partnered with fellow resident Le Social, who will complement the dishes with an extensive list of fine organic and natural wines.

The menu will be subject to change depending on availability of produce and will be £60 per head.

Tine pride themselves on working with incredible farmers, focussing on hyper seasonal and local products, so each plate will tell its own story.

Dishes for the opening weekend included oyster with wild plum; dayboat ikejime sea bass with rich smoked yolk and tomato; hogget loin with pumpkin seed stew and a fermented potato cake; and a dessert of green strawberry with walnut parfait and grated frozen Eccles cake.

“Kampus is proud to be bringing together two of the most exciting young businesses in Manchester,” said Adam Brady, HBD.

“We are passionate about supporting local independent operators, and can’t wait to see what Tine and Le Social bring to our growing community.”

Tine is trading at the Bungalow at Kampus from Thursday to Sunday for evening meals. To book head to
