The Counter House

1 user review 1

If you're fed up of fish fingers and fancy something a little more refined try The Counter House. Offering a selection of small sharing plates ranging from cauliflower fritters to baked crab cakes, it's the perfect place to let your tots branch out (and the great news is that anything they don't finish, you can have).

If you're looking for a healthier option, check out Comptoir Libanais' selection of Lebanese-inspired dishes, featuring smaller sized Kofta, wraps and halloumi dishes. The child-friendly cafe, located in Manchester's city centre, has beautiful interiors inspired by the souks of the Middle East.
