Manchester Craft and Design Centre

We’re delighted to announce the team behind The Butcher’s Quarter on Tib Street has launched an artisan café here at Manchester Craft and Design Centre.

“BQ Bitesize will be a taste of everything you all love at BQ! Expect hot roast sandwiches, breakfasts, artisan coffee, quality wines, cheese & charcuterie.” The Butcher’s Quarter

Chef & manager Freddie Minns (formerly head chef at The French) selects a joint of meat every day from The Butchers Quarter for his daily changing hot roast sandwich menu.

The menu also includes breakfast butties, soup of the day, cakes and pastries, served alongside coffees, teas, beers and fine wines.

It’s an ideal spot to relax whilst browsing our two floors of maker studios. Pop in and have a butcher’s!

BQ Bitesize will be hosting supper clubs, wine-tasting events and special evenings. Follow them on Instagram for the latest news and specials and check out their menus below.
