Whether it’s a classic carvery pub for Sunday lunch in Cheadle Hulme or satisfying Sunday roast, or Chinese, Italian or Indian restaurants, Cheadle Hulme has it all – right here on your doorstep.
As well as the many specialist restaurants in Cheadle Hulme, we’re blessed with a fine choice of more traditional eateries. The John Millington – where many of us remember the old Millington Hall restaurant – has a dedicated restaurant area (although bar meals can be served throughout the pub). The affectionately-known PD, or Pointing Dog, at the junction of Gillbent Road, Stanley Road and Grove Lane is cool and contemporary with a light, airy feel – a far cry from the old Smithy. The Hesketh, on Hulme Hall Road has been recently reinvented but is still famed for its fantastic carveries and rich history. The a la carte menu has been extended so there’s something for everyone.
Platform 5, next to Cheadle Hulme station, brings a distinctly Northern Quarter style to Cheadle Hulme and now shows football; while the newly named King’s Tap has a similar style but retains an inexpensive menu. Other pubs also offer excellent food and at very reasonable prices – the March Hare, alongside the river and just off Ladybridge Road has a real country pub feel; the Governors House with its extensive outside area on Ravenoak Road; perennial favourite and Cheadle Hulme’s oldest hostelry, the Church Inn on the corner of Church Road and Ravenoak; plus the Kenilworth offers particularly good value in friendly and welcoming surroundings (not to mention televised sport for the footy fans amongst us).
One of the longest-established restaurants in Cheadle Hulme is of course Rainbow88, in Cheadle Hulme Shopping Centre, where Linda Lam and her friendly team offer delicious, freshly-cooked Cantonese and Chinese food, along with authentic Dim Sum, in sumptuous surroundings, as well as a takeaway service and catering for vegetarian or other dietary requirements. Tang’s on Church Road – which for many years was Wings – has recently undergone a refurbishment but still offers delicious cuisine in a welcoming environment.
There’s another restaurant in Cheadle Hulme shopping centre, too – Claudio and Leo’s family-run La Casetta Italian restaurant, boasting authentic Italian cooking with recipes straight out of their Nonnas’ kitchens! Just a short stroll across Station Road, next to Oak Meadow, is Trattoria d’Agostino, another authentic Italian restaurant with a lovely ambience, specializing in pizza and pasta as well as delicious meat and fish dishes. You can even take your own wine… With a more contemporary vibe, there’s also Gusto, further up Station Road, occupying the ground-floor frontage of the ‘old AA building’. If you like Italian restaurants, Cheadle Hulme delivers! Route 66, recently opened on Mellor Road makes a refreshing change and once Vesper opens (watch this space!), in the old Bridgeway House. there’ll be no reason to ever leave Cheadle Hulme.
