By George the food – and drink – at this new-school Didsbury boozer is good! Joining the growing throng of fine eateries and watering holes in West Didsbury village along Burton Road, The George Charles is already a local favourite. The food is cooked, as it were, from the ground up using the best that Manchester’s regional suppliers can hand over, the drinks are top-notch, and the whole lot is housed inside a sensitively restored Victorian pub, owner David Vanderhook paying tribute to the area’s rich history of migration and hard graft by naming the gastropub-gaff after late 19th-century Armenian emigre who marries a local lass and opened up a fruit stall nearby. All manner of robust European and British classics are on offer thanks to the magic of head chef Phil Larkin (formerly of The Dun Cow), there are craft beers aplenty for hopheads, and you’ll often find live music gracing the premises, too.
Enjoyed a Seriously good Sunday roast - we had delicious starters with cauliflower wings and chicken goujons. Clare and the team so friendly and welcoming.
Lovely restuarant, staff are always very friendly and helpful. Food is superb, good choice for veggies and vegans and always tastes fresh. Great spot for brunch
Amazing food (& value for money) Xmas quiz was also extremely entertaining. Great night / amazing staff / good prices. Definitely going back for a monday night film :)
