We’re sure you don’t need to do much more than take a quick glance at the menu – well, that and make a reservation, because this place is consistently packed – to be set on having a meal at The Flixton. Food Porn 2017 Northwest finalists, this buzzing Urmston bistro, right on Flixton Road by Urmston station, continues to cement itself as one of the best casual European dining experiences to be had in Greater Manchester. It’s friendly, family-run and cosy, but the food is refined and progressive. Black pudding bon bons, lamb and mint terrine with crushed pistachio, poached king prawns with garlic and chilli butter, pan-roasted duck breast with poached pear, wagyu and bone marrow burger, whole stuffed seabass, seafood paella with smoked chorizo and three-course Sunday roast – need we say more?
Located on Flixton Road, The Flixton has not only been shaking up Urmston’s foodie scene, but has been making waves across Greater Manchester too, attracting diners from all over the city. On the menu, expect to find reinventions of British classics, all cooked from scratch using seasonal and local ingredients, and whether it's for a special evening meal or a traditional roast on a Sunday, The Flixton is a favourite among foodies.
We recommend beginning your meal with the black pudding bon bons with a cider and pear sauce or the ham hock croquettes before moving on to the main event. From chicken ballotine (chicken studded with pomegranate, walnut, squash and goats cheese with a pomegranate and walnut sauce served with saffron rice and salad) to the fillet of cod with poached duck egg, crushed jersey potatoes, samphire and a chive and butter sauce, and the Malaysian roast vegetable curry, there’s something to suit all tastes and dietary requirements on the menu at this Manchester gem. To guarantee a table at The Flixton in Urmston, making a reservation in advance is recommended.
Lovely meal and service as always. Definitely going back soon!
Lovely food, pleasant staff and a great time had by all. Will definitely be returning to repeat the experience and will be recommending it to family and friends.
We had a 3 course Sunday lunch and the food was fantastic. The service was great and we both went home full and happy. Thanks
