If you’re looking for a fun place to eat in Manchester, the city’s premier lad pad might be the solution. Inside is a wonderland of Xbox Ones, pool, fussball (and even private karaoke), but the main attraction is probably the indoor golf booths! Get stuck into that while eating pizzas, burgers and gourmet sandwiches and you’re having a great time.
