Venue: Airy, high ceilinged restaurant with a modern British menu in the busy Northern Quarter.

Menu: TNQ has been busy since it opened some 15 years ago when it impressed Cheshire Life’s Food & Drink Awards judges. Little has changed (which is good). It’s British dining that’s bold, not prissy, and there’s plenty of comfort food. My starter of Coastal Cheddar & Onion Soup (£5.95) was cheesy and oniony. My friend enjoyed his Smoked Haddock Croquettes (£7.95) but the curry mayo wasn’t quite curry enough for him. His main of Cider Braised Pork Belly with kale, carrots and crackling (£17.95) seemed to satisfy. My Roast Breast of Goosnargh Chicken with spring onion hash browns and truffle foam was excellent, if a little on the large side.

Decor and ambience: Friendly and relaxed in an urbane modern Manc way.

Service: Good.

Cost: Two people, three courses, plus wine and two sides came to £108. Didn’t really need the sides!
