Eating Out in Bury

Bury is packed full of places to eat and the list includes plenty of award winners and a real focus on regional produce.

In the north of the borough Ramsbottom has a growing reputation as a foodie destination. There are several Good Food Guide entries including Ramsons, which has long been recognised for its seasonal menu and Samini which uses the freshest produce to create spectacular South Indian cuisine.

Newcomers include the Hearth of the Ram, just a couple of minutes walk from the East Lancashire Railway, while just up the hill is The Eagle & Child. This gastro pub is run as a social enterprise and its stunning beer garden is home to chickens and veggie plots which supply the kitchen.

As well as restaurants there are also some great cafes. In Bury town centre Katsouris is something of a local institution and Delicious at the Fusilier Museum serves some of the best homemade food around. Automatic Café is a great independent restaurant/bar which is also family friendly - and is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and later. Kids will also love a trip to Falshaws Farm Shop and Ice Cream Parlour in Walmersley where the milk for their homemade ice cream comes straight from their own herd of cows.

If you love chocolate then you may already have heard of the Ramsbottom Chocolate Festival which takes place before Easter. For the rest of the year those in the know like to fill the gap with a visit to The Chocolate Café in Ramsbottom or Slattery in Whitefield- also known for its fantastic wedding cakes.
