The latest venture from Justin Parkinson, the owner of popular Didsbury haunt Folk, Wine and Wallop is set to be a classic wine bar in the space of the old Blockbuster Video shop on Lapwing Lane; ideally located amidst the restaurants and bars of Didsbury. The front of the venue reflects the old town aesthetic of Didsbury, sitting neatly in its setting.
Inspired by the wine bar phenomenon of the 1980s, Wine and Wallop will be an uncomplicated West Didsbury bar aimed at an older audience, offering a superb list of wines by the glass as well as local micro-brewed ales and cask ciders. To compliment the classic wines and craft beers, a menu of sophisticatedly simple, honest food will be served including ham hock, peasant style pate and a beef fillet carpaccio. The extensive bar will also include an upstairs function room and an off licence, allowing customers to take home flagons of ale or bottles of wine for a generous tipple at home.
Wine and Wallop's interior exudes a warm and airy space structured by the wall spanning bar and intimate booths opposite. With candles and light woods in abundance this wine bar oozes class and style - a fitting Didsbury resident.
A word from the chef:
A simple, homely menu offering up smoked mackerel pate and brown bread, charcuterie with home made ham hock and a splendid beef fillet carpaccio.
