The Lead Station

The Lead Station photo


The Lead Station is a “Chorlton institution” according to many, and it isn’t hard to see why. This restaurant, café and bar is homely and welcoming as well as offering a stunning food and drink menu that all adds to the charm.

With ingredients delivered daily to provide for the seasonally changing menu, the food is certainly fresh at The Lead Station. Expect daily specials too which add even more variety to a menu already overflowing with top dishes. The bar provides classic cocktails, a great international wine selection and some great beers and spirits, everything you’d ever want in the heart of Chorlton.

They even have their own 50 capacity private hire space called ‘The Copper Room’; the name is a play on words (The Lead Station was once a police station). Decked out with its own cocktail bar and with decks and a TV, The Copper Room adds a slice of privacy and fun to your evening at The Lead Station. Truly a Chorlton institution, The Lead Station needs to be on your nightlife hit list.

A word from the chef:
Homemade from daily deliveries, the outstanding food they serve has been simple, classic and honest since 1995. The seasonal menus of hearty comfort food change regularly, taking influences from across the world.

Great food and drinks, perfect to stop by if you're in the area or need a rest from Manchester's city centre.
