New Gravy Bar hits Manchester - or does it?

Gravy bar - saucy idea or pile of bull?

Wookey

Muppet is not a slur
Hot on the hipster heels of a cereal bar and a sherry bar, the story this week is of a new gravy restaurant opening in our Northern Quarter, here in the capital of England.

Or is it just a very well-realised April Fool?

I for one would be chuffed to little mint-balls were the rumours true - but the press release doesn't give an address, which raises my eyebrows significantly.

Still, 10/10 for effort - quintuple shallow fried chips, cask conditioned gravy and branded flasks to take some home in. Lush idea. :)

Southerners - please pass on by if you don't understand any of this, it's not your fault.;)



The New Manchester Gravy Bar Has Released Its Menu And Bloody Hell It's Good - Lovin Manchester

Self-cleaning oven, the whole bit.

Vegan gravy but no vegan pie to put it on?

The Shakespeare's Head in Brighton is a bit like this. It's basically sausage and mash, but you choose your sausage, choose your mash and choose your gravy in a 1,2,3 kind of way. It's where my good lady and I went on our second ever date. :cool:

Pre "gentrification" there was an honest place on the Piccadilly approach ramp that did no nonesense barms , chips , etc - "with gravy" ......seemed to do good business and as an interloper from elsewhere I used to thin "good" ..bit of local character ....

I think it is now a Waitrose .....

It was an absolutely dire greasy spoon to be fair - truly horrible cheap shit ingredients, best avoided unless you were utterly spannered and starving after dancing all night in a sordid club in town. Presumably you were doing that before you went, hence thinking it was OK, with your mind addled with class As. :hmm:

Not me guv ....just observed it as a bloke attending meetings in Manchester (which was always great - as you often got chips served with the buffet) ........

Mr Big Shrimp!
Unfortunately, the launch on 1st April did not go to plan. After a large and as of yet unexplained explosion in gravy still #6b, more than 2,000 litres of scalding artisanal gravy were unleashed upon our customer base and then into the streets of Manchester. Our founder, Nikki, has not been seen since.

The venue has now been sealed and condemned as unsafe.

We are pleased to declare Gravy bar a resounding success.
