Aumbry Restaurant Prestwich
The intimate dining room at Aumbry occupies a tiny, converted Victorian cottage in the heart of Prestwich village, just 16 mins on the tram from Manchester city centre.
Opened in late 2009 by highly-celebrated husband and wife chefs Laurence Tottingham and Mary-Ellen McTague, with their business partner Kate Mountain, Aumbry offers a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
The short menus reflect the abundance of wonderful local produce available throughout the seasons with Aumbry seeking out the best of these raw ingredients, cooking them with care to create dishes that aim to showcase the produce.
Using a combination of the very traditional, taking inspiration from historical cookery, and the very latest science and technology, Laurence and Mary-Ellen create dishes of deceptive simplicity.
This is quality cooking in an informal atmosphere, where service is friendly, professional yet relaxed.

Laurence and Mary-Ellen both started their careers at Sharrow Bay Country House Hotel in Ullswater, The Lake District.
After spending a year working in the States, they took positions working at the Fat Duck in Bray.
They spent four years working for Heston Blumenthal before returning home to the North West, initially to work for Paul Heathcote and Ramsons in Ramsbottom before opening Aumbry with Kate in October 2009.
Their efforts haven't gone unnoticed as Aumbry won Restaurant of the Year at both the Lancashire Life and Manchester Food & Drink Festival in Ocober 2010, just 12 months after opening.
The team are not resting on their laurels though and, after extending the kitchen, they have their sights set on consolidating their achievements so far and further exploring the wealth of fascinating historical British dishes.
The whole Aumbry experience really is worth making the short journey from Manchester, although booking ahead is essential.

Aumbry Restaurant Reviews
" So, it was a quick 15 minute tram ride to Prestwich for a nine course tasting menu at Elbow's Guy Garvey's favourite restaurant for the sixth meal in our 15 in seven days project.
This delightfully tiny restaurant, ran by married chefs Laurence Tottingham and Great British Menu finalist Mary-Ellen McTague, is located in a converted terrace house just off Bury New Road. It's so intimate that by the end of the night you'll find you've made friends with people on adjoining tables, comparing dishes and tasting notes whilst proclaiming how impressed you are by the food. Or at least that was the case with our fellow diners during our visit.
The white table clothes, white chairs and white walls are punctuated with huge black and white photographs of Dennis Hopper and Frank Sinatra. These are great images however we're not entirely sure on their relevance to Aumbry but there's plenty of Elbow and Badly Drawn Boy on the playlist to remind you of the restaurant's local friends.
Both Laurence and Mary-Ellen have previously spent time working under Heston Blumenthal at The Fat Duck in Bray at the time it was crowned 'Best Restaurant in the World' (2005). This is more than evident in the playful nature of the dishes at Aumbry, each served on vintage English Fine Bone China crockery..
We lost count of the number of amouse bouches and extra dishes that found their way to our table amongst the nine 'advertised' dishes on the Tasting Menu (£75) however, like the main event, each one had us "wooing" and "wowing" enthusiastically for all to see. The same procedure was being repeated on other tables around the small room, which in a past life would have been somebody's living room.....[click here for full review]" ~ Restaurants Of Manchester (October 2013)
