An eas­ily di­gestible re­view

The Old Garages 75 Hawthorn Street Wilm­slow, SK9 5EJ the­

Venue: Con­tender for Wilm­slow’s best restau­rant: this tucked-away brunch and cake fix­ture has mor­phed into a late-night joint with a grow­ing fan­base. Our ver­dict? There’s nowhere else like it in the town.

Menu: A short and thought­fully put-to­gether small plates se­lec­tion that ac­tu­ally works – ev­ery­thing ties in and the qual­ity of the pro­duce stands out. The bur­rata came smoth­ered in olive oil and sun­flower seeds; we tore up warm flat­breads and dunked them in gar­licky hou­mous and aioli with an ex­tra mouth­ful of chorizo; and the spe­cial of con­fit duck was crispy in all the right places. I couldn’t quite han­dle cake for dessert. As for the wine… it’s ex­cep­tional. This is def­i­nitely one for your (Cheshire) bucket list.

Dé­cor and am­bi­ence: An en­dur­ingly cool spot with Scandi notes and an in­dus­trial vibe: pot­ted cacti, mis­matched fur­ni­ture, ce­ramic tiles and soar­ing ceil­ings.

Service: Down-to-earth yet pol­ished – they re­ally know their stuff.

Cost: Around £70 for a meal for two with a bot­tle of wine.
