A bustling borough bistro has been named as one of the top 100 brunch and Sunday lunch places to visit.

The Cherry Tree on Chorley Road in Blackrod, was listed among some other popular restaurants in Manchester, including Dukes 92, Escape to Freight Island, and more.

The OpenTable list has compiled the list from more than 1.2m OpenTable UK diner reviews and metrics.

Restaurant manager Alison Graham said: “It's fabulous when the team are recognised for all their hard work.

“They all work so hard to produce the highest level and food of service.”

The Bolton News: Alison says that it is the “small touches” and “attention to detail” that makes them stand out from the rest.

Alison said: “I think we have a great variety of dishes.

“There is an option for everyone.

The Bolton News: “That combined with the service and the atmosphere make us a restaurant you can come to for a quick bite or a big celebration.”

On a Sunday, the restaurant and bar offer a set menu alongside their A la carte menu too. 

Alison said: “The chefs work really hard to produce an amazing Sunday roast.

“Sunday is such a nice, relaxed family vibe too.”

Alison loves the fast-paced environment and says no two days are the same, even after being there for almost two years.

She added: “It's also nice that we have such fabulous regular customer and a team that really stay with us. “

The Bolton News:

While the building has a long history, The Cherry Tree has only been around since September 2010 and is a family-owned restaurant.

It was voted Bolton’s best restaurant in 2020, and serves classic British cooking with a warm, friendly, and personal service.

Their classic dishes have a modern influence using the freshest, local produce.

In Manchester these favourites were also on the list: Albert’s Worsley, Ducie Street Warehouse, Piccolino Caffe Grande, The Blues Kitchen, and the Restaurant at The Refuge.
