Celebrity chef Tom Kerridge will open a restaurant in Manchester this winter.
The Michelin-starred chef has partnered with GG Hospitality (which is owned by football stars Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville) to open a restaurant at the group’s upcoming Stock Exchange hotel, which is set to open its doors in the final quarter of the year.
Kerridge will be heading up the as-yet-unnamed restaurant at Stock Exchange. The 40 room hotel finds its home in an Edwardian building from 1906, which has undergone extensive refurbishment to transform it into a five-star hotel experience.

This will be the second hotel restaurant for the much-loved chef, who opened critically acclaimed Kerridge’s Bar & Grill at Corinthia Hotel London last year. However, the majority of the television chef’s restaurant portfolio can be found in Marlow, where Kerridge operates two Michelin-starred The Hand & Flowers, as well as The Butcher’s Tap and The Coach.
Speaking about the planned opening, Kerridge said: “This is a really exciting opening for us. The hotel is going to be stunning and we’re very happy to be working with GG Hospitality. We can’t say much at this stage, but I can say that we’ll be bringing a bit of Marlow up to Manchester. We are very much looking forward to being a part of the city and joining the exciting and vibrant Manchester food scene."
Chef Michael Hare (formerly of Rabbit in the Moon) was originally supposed to oversee the restaurant at the property, before parting ways with GG Hospitality in 2018.
