Here’s what people have been saying about us lately, darling…

MANCHESTER’S FINEST
Best Brunch Spots In Manchester

“The menu is rather impressive, with a slight Mexican twist that includes Tostadas, Burritos and a brilliant Jumpin’ Jack Hash. You can’t really go wrong here, and if you can manage to finish off their Large Fry Up and not feel like going back to bed for 2 days, you’re a better person than I”

BBC GOOD FOOD
“Common remains a significant cut above”

CREATIVE TOURIST
“Common is a favourite haunt of many in Manchester’s arts communities. The reason, essentially, is that everything they do is forward-thinking. From their top selection of beer to their rotating art exhibition to their array of poetry nights, musical performances and arts workshops, the bar do innovation well.”

MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS
“With one of the wittiest – and most bizarre – social media presences in the city, Common has gained a loyal following for its award-winning brunches and relaxed offering.

It underwent an extensive refurb back in 2015, trading out its scruffy but lovable interior for a Scandi-minimal space. Colour is added with temporary art exhibitions and showcases, as well as a menu of fry-ups, burgers, burritos and salads.”

MANCHESTER VEGAN SECRETS
“Whenever I ask people in the Manchester vegan community for recommendations for a vegan breakfast, someone always recommends Common. It is a really good vegan breakfast.”

THE SKINNY
“The times they are a changin’ for this Manchester institution, but it’s not lost its USP – good beer and good food”

COTTON MCR
“We love Common. Decent beers, decent venue, decent atmosphere. Common Bar hosts loads of events, including markets and workshops. They also host art exhibitions too so we’re happy!”

OLIVE MAGAZINE
“Common is the quintessential hip, arty N/4 hangout.”

DESIGN MY NIGHT
“Cool kids head to Common, the bar and restaurant on Edge Street. The place has a vegetarian-friendly choice of dishes and has been voted as one of the best breakfast spots in the country. Coffee is taken seriously here, working with London supplier Workshop Coffee to ensure the best beans in the business.”

MANCHESTER’S FINEST
“A real neighbourhood spot in every sense that satisfies all your brunch needs alongside a decent pint or two. Common boasts a great selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes and a happy hour that cannot be missed.”

MANCHESTER CONFIDENTIAL
“And then something wonderful happened. A revelation. Enough to make me reconsider our Top 10 Dishes In Manchester. Out came a quad of brillianty red, gooey, sticky Korean fried chicken”

DOLLY BAKES
“Beef Chilli Fries – cheese, jalapeños: Seriously good. No, ‘upsettingly’ good. ”

 


TASTE OF MANCHESTER
“I also enjoyed a cup of the bar’s much-improved coffee, which they now source from Workshop roasters in London’s Clerkenwell, specifically their lovely Cult of Done single origin espresso blend.”

MANCHESTER WIRE
“The original hipster hide out”

BACON ON THE BEECH
“I had planned to just have just a Reuben sandwich but of course these things always escalate with me.”
