Behind an elaborately leafy metal screen that keeps some of Deansgate’s excesses at bay, Manchester’s representative of the botanically themed bar-restaurant chain has some decidedly eccentric details for this conventional part of town. Doors open on to an airy orangery-inspired space, and customers catwalk alongside the long cocktail bar under rickety chandeliers hung with dusty-looking, jewel-coloured glass. The piano by the bar is often manned – live music is a daily feature – and drinks to share (such as Raspberry and Sage: with black grapes, raspberry vodka, elderflower liqueur and white wine) arrive in watering cans. Food presentation also lays on the horticultural theme with a trowel, literally in some cases, but dishes have a common-or-garden familiarity. Build-your-own deli boards, sausage and mash, hanging kebabs (popularised at sister Living Ventures venue, The Oast House) and rotisserie chicken are among the choices that aren’t intended to ruffle any feathers.
