It could be said that Oldham offers the best of both worlds, being perfectly situated between the bustle of Manchester city centre and the beauty of the Yorkshire countryside and the Peak District. Restaurants in Oldham are just as varied, with everything from stylish town centre diners to relaxed country house restaurants. There are lots of different cuisines to try too, from hearty and traditional British fare to popular international favourites such as Indian and Italian. We've brought together some of the best Oldham restaurants here on Quandoo to make it easy for you to enjoy some outstanding dining experiences, so go on and book a table right now.
If you like your food fresh and local, Oldham restaurants such as the Chadderton Bar & Grill can certainly deliver. They rear their very own Saddleback pork and this can be enjoyed to the full in dishes such as sausage and mash, and delicious gammon steak. There's also an international twist in dishes like the scrumptious Cajun spiced chicken wings or chorizo and halloumi fried and served with hummus, tzatziki and pitta.
If you believe spice is nice then the Indian restaurants of Oldham are for you. Manchester may be known for its Curry Mile, but there are plenty of restaurants in Oldham serving great Indian food that can easily match anything found in the city. The cabbana lamb tikka served at Blue Spice, for example, is a standout, as is the chicken gorkali at Cafe Lahore. If you fancy something a little different but really like your spice, meanwhile, the 'Insane' burger at Zamanz will certainly deliver the kick you love.
Whether it's pizza and pasta you're looking for, or something a little special, then check out the restaurants in Oldham offering excellent and authentic Italian cuisine. The Old Bill, for example, does a fantastic leg of lamb, slow-cooked in a rich mint and redcurrant sauce. Then there's the chicken parmigiana over at the Italian Job Restaurant, a classic done really well with breaded chicken breast, tomato sauce, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. If it's pizza you're after, try the cipolla pizza with spinach, caramelised red onions, sweet and spicy peppers, and goats cheese served over at Mio Zio.
