Yesterday evening I visited The Oast House in Spinningfields along with some other lovely ladies to sample the new dessert menu and generally have a chit chat.
For those of you who don’t know, The Oast House is the location of Spinfest, which I have enjoyed for the past couple of years. It’s also the home of an impressive beer and real ale selection, and now I can confirm that The Oast House is also the home of some seriously scrummy puddings.
I was a bit dubious about abandoning my very sensible “savoury then sweet” rule, but Desserts Before Dinner was a huge success in my belly.
Without further ado, take a peek.
Rocky Road Sundae WITH CHERRIES. Nope. Too Tasty.
Strawberry & Marshmallow kebabs. W/ Sailor Jerry’s chocolate sauce. Get in my belly.
If you have never been to the Oast House then you might be surprised to hear its not a cocktail bar. As the name would suggest, it’s the heart of beer, in a cockatil heavy Spinningfields.
Originally intended to be a temporary watering hole, The OH was a huge success and has stayed open way longer than expected, and is hopefully now a permanent fixture on the Manchester drinking scene. I particularly like the honky-tonk feel, and Mr Kitty & I visit now and then to enjoy some live music. I’m ashamed to say it sends us back to Memphis, and more than once we’ve cracked out our Southern Belle accents and kicked back for a few hours.
Visiting in a more dignified fashion – tea and cakes – felt lovely. Almost like a really edgy WI meeting.
I haven’t got much else to say go and try it.
Many thanks to Hannah and the rest of the ladies for lovely company last night!
