The Laundrette in Chorlton
Excellent cocktails,lovely staff and very LGBT friendly
I love Chorlton but some of the restaurants can be a bit 'hit and miss'. We called here one Sunday lunchtime and we had a great experience. There were a lot of children in the place but you can't really go anywhere in chorlton without seeing children, especially on Beech road!
The staff were excellent, very attentive, genuine and professional. Service and timings were spot on and the food was excellent. We had the ribs to start aswell as lovely mozzarella and tomato salad which were amazing.A perfectly cooked classic burger followed and we shared a beetroot and gorgonzola pizza which was also delicious and really different to any pizza I have had before.
We also had some polenta chips again really nice and crispy and covered in parmesan and truffle oil.
We also loved the Tipsy Fish cocktail, which was a nice surprise and my friend tried the Blueberry Gin Mojito.We couldnt resist trying each others.
The Laundrette is within easy walking distance of the tram service (recently extended to Chorlton on the East Didsbury Line )and is well placed close to the centre of this leafy town centre and its plethora of hospitality.
The venue itself, is comfortable and atmospheric even when really busy, as it was on our recent visit.The combination of booth seating and some higher tables where you can enjoy food or drinks or both,really help to break up a uniform look to the place.You can also sit at the good sized bar, if you can grab a space that is.
Extensive out side seating,traverses the front and side of the building and has the effect of drawing you into the venue.
Chorlton Water Park and the Kagyu Ling Buddhist Centre are amongst the areas popular attractions.Both are close enough to visit pre or post visit to The Laundrette.
This venue is also def LGBT friendly and with my #canalstcard we received a lovely glass of Prosecco as we sat down and ordered our food.
Throughout our first visit,the service was great and everyone was really friendly! Would def go back!
