Festive menu taster: Village Brasserie

Okay, so I know it's only October but I welcome any opportunity to get into the festive spirit so I was really excited when I received my invite to a Christmas menu taster at Village Brasserie in Manchester. Located in the heart of the Gay Village, Village Brasserie is a hidden treasure. With elegant booths, vibrant lighting and tasteful decor, this is an interior dream.

The evening was a casual vibe with guests able to network and sample a variety of starters, mains and desserts in a canape form. This was a great idea as it gave guests the opportunity to try an array of different dishes from the menu as opposed to selecting just one option.

The food was absolutely amazing. I loved the different tastes and textures and thoroughly enjoyed every single dish. The Braised Ox Cheek was definitely my favourite and it was great to try something I wouldn't normally select off the menu!

We were also provided with free-flowing prosecco, iced cocktails and spiced gin; fit for the festive season!


The three course festive menu is open for both lunch and dinner servings with extremely reasonable prices and is available from 22 November.

Village Brasserie is located at:
Velvet Hotel
2 Canal Street
M1 3HE

I had a wonderful evening and would definitely recommend Velvet to anyone in the Manchester area! Thank you to the Village Brasserie staff for the invite & amazing hospitality on the night. I can't wait to return soon!
