Loaf is something of a Manchester institution, occupying two of the arches in Deansgate Locks and providing a capacity of around 1200. Despite its massive size, the venue retains a friendly and intimate feel, perhaps because of its split structure: bar and restaurant areas on the first floor, and the lovely Canal Bar on the ground floor with lovely outside seating. The food is informal and focuses on small plates of finger food that can be shared with friends. For the hungrier diner, they also offer a range of salads and burgers, as well as a traditional roast on Sundays.
