About Mr Cooper's House
Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:
British bistro fare from multi-Michelin-starred exec chef in leafy surrounds.
It’s to Mr Cooper’s Head Chef Gareth Jones credit that he’s not phased by working with the country’s top chef, Simon Rogan. Deceptively simple dishes like hyssop meatballs or pork chops with a sage crust have a classical background, and use many of the same techniques and recipes employed at The French (Rogan’s fine dining restaurant also in the Midland) and two-Michelin-starred L’Enclume in Cartmel. As a result, this really is one of the best value restaurants in town. Often there are just three flavours on the plate – beef, apricot, and cucumber in the case of the meatballs - but sourcing is immaculate, typically sharing Cumbrian producers with L’Enclume. Simple yet luxurious is the theme, think smoked eel torte, lovage and pork belly or duck caramelized with molasses sugar. The restaurant is a one-off among the Rogan group, using international inspirations on the dishes as well as British-produce. Plants and herbs play their part in the light-clad restaurant too, which is named after the old house and garden that was built here in 1819. Cascading ferns and patio furniture that make it feel like destination dining while ‘library’ wallpaper depicting hundreds of leather bound tones lend a colonial vibe.
