Food & Drink Food

Stockport town centre has a wide choice of places to eat and drink, by day or by night.

A fine choice:

  • Taste a finely brewed coffee and a tempting treat from Cafelito at St Peter’s Square.
  • Or perhaps you may fancy a pie from the award winning Lord of the Pies on Petersgate.
  • Try a locally brewed ale and tempting meaty feast from Baker’s Vaults on the Market Place.
  • Time for tea? Step back in time and enjoy a splendid lunch or sample afternoon tea at the Plaza.
  • Families may want to grab a quick bite from fast food outlet McDonalds in Merseyway.

New on the menu: 5*rated for Stockport

New to the fine dining arena is Where the Light Gets In in the Old Town – your menu is chosen for you! Sit back and enjoy chef / proprietor Sam Buckley’s forage and selection of the day accompanied by carefully selected wines – a more sophisticated experience.

Complimenting but in contrast to Sam’s adventurous meat feasts is neighbouring restaurant The Allotment, a unique vegan restaurant that will appeal to all tastes, try it!

“It’s an exciting time for Stockport’s food lovers. Foodie Friday burst onto the street food scene and brought people back into the town, kick-starting an evening economy. Sam Buckley’s innovative dining experience at ‘Where the Light Gets In’ has won both local hearts and national acclaim while The Allotment is attracting vegan fine-diners in to Stockport. Pub goers are catered for too at nearby Bakers Vaults where great food is served with the finest ales from Stockport’s Robinsons local. Exciting times for Stockport.”
