Elnecot – Neighbourhood bar and kitchen

‘Elnecot’ was the first recorded name in 1212 for the suburb of Manchester now known as Ancoats.

Ancoats is now thriving and Elnecot is the latest addition to the area. I love the decor, with its mixture of orange leather seating, breeze block walls and wooden tables.

The food is strictly local and seasonal, and you’ll find a variety of small plates – perfect for sharing with friends. I like to take as many friends as possible so I can order as many dishes as possible. My favourites are the Pigs Ears (yep), the aubergine and mint balls, the Manchester egg, the spiced pollock and the disco cauliflower. There are plenty of dishes for vegetarians and vegans, too. 

Elnecot’s other draw is its extensive cocktail list, with twists on classics, such as the Ancoats negroni, my favourite. I also love the ‘supersonics’ – gin and tonics made with local gins. I’ve never left Elnecot hungry, or sober.
