Went today and waited for an hour before being told our order never made it to the kitchen! Very long wait for what was pretty much 1/2 a hipster sandwich - not impressed and won't be back

Great Atmosphere and a friendly place to hang out. The drinks are reasonably priced, and the food is superb.

It's a puzzling one, this. Visit during the day on a lovely sunny Friday and you'll find it buzzing with laptop-tappers and Chorlton mums having tea and cake and various other items. A nice scene. Then go for a pint and a fag on a...More

Visiting with an hour to kill and grabbed a quick bite and brew. Gorgeous bacon and cream cheese bagel with earl grey tea. Warm service from Phil and funky tunes. Not too glamorous a place but doesn’t pretend to be. Hit the spot.

This is my go to place for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. Not loads of stuff on the menu, but what they do offer, is simple and delicious. The coffee is great too. Only complaint is that it can be hard to find somewhere to...More

At The Spoon Inn we are really passionate about what we have to offer. We firmly believe that quality is the most important thing. In a world that has sold itself to mass production we intend to deliver the best quality products at affordable prices. Our aim is to provide our customers with a variety of food and beverage which have been sourced locally whenever possible, and from around the world. These products will be prepared and served on our premises, in the style they were originally intended.
The idea which has now become 'The Spoon Inn', began as a simple conversation amongst three friends, local to the area, voicing our opinions about the lack of really good coffee and tea houses, so we decided to do something about it. Since then the business has developed from coffee and tea, to include food and alcohol. Things will always naturally change and evolve but we consider it to be our obligation to get our coffee and tea spot on. We don't claim to be experts and have tried to avoid coming across as pretentious in any way. For this reason we are open to our customer's views about our products and techniques. You may find that we do things slightly differently at The Spoon Inn.
Manchester is a hive of creativity, buzzing with all kinds of artistic life. The Spoon Inn endeavours to capture this unique quality. We will be showcasing work from local musicians, poets, actors, comedians and artists so that you, our customers, will be entertained while your palates are being stimulated. Located in Chorlton's up and coming Barlowmoor rd Parade (opposite the bus station), you will find us open seven days a week. We look forward to meeting you face to face!
