Sister site to the heralded Sticky Walnut in Chester, Hispi is the hotly anticipated bistro opened up by Gary Usher in Didsbury.

You’ll first notice Hispi for its distinctive olive-green walls, which beckon foodie fans inside to a wonderfully homely and inviting ground floor dining space. There’s further seating upstairs, where guests can pull up a pew on the mezzanine level which looks out upon the dining room below.

Hispi strives to create a welcoming feel more reminiscent of someone’s home than a restaurant, and it’s the ideal spot to come for relaxed lunches or a hearty plate of comfort food at dinner time. The lunch menu offers 2 courses for £16 or 3 for £19 - superb value for money given the expertise of head chef Richard Sharples - and diners can tuck into the likes of Gressingham duck breast, chargrilled mackerel and some innovative veggie options, with a few fan favourites from Sticky Walnut included on the menu.
