I have brought friends and family to the Fat loaf over 10 times over the last six months since moving to Sale. The food on both the set menu and the a la carte are simply excellent. I can tell from the taste and the presentation that the chefs are formally trained and their cooking is on par with fancy celebrity chef London restaurants. Their marinated steak is the best steak I have ever had and their sticky toffee pudding is sublime! My visiting friends are always impressed. The price is very reasonable and, for the standard of food they serve, it is an absolute bargain. In fact, the set menu which is available until 7pm cost only £10 for two courses. The restaurant itself is small and has a modern relaxed ambience. It is a good idea to book in advance to avoid disappointment as it is quite often hired for private functions. The only very slight letdown is the service which sometimes feels a bit impersonal. Saying that, it is a very minor point as everything else is perfect and the owner himself, who I guess is also the head chef, is a very friendly guy. Overall, i think the Fat loaf is one of the best restaurants in Manchester and I would be happy to use it to entertain my visitors for years to come.
