Modern British cuisine rubs well-seasoned shoulders with a variety of succulent grills and international dishes on the menu at Brassica Grill. Stockport has welcomed this honest gourmet restaurant ever since restaurateur Paul Faulkner (Manchester’s The Modern, Zinc, and Albert Square Chophouse, London’s Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge and OXO Tower) set up shop along Shaw Road in Heaton Moor. With a carefully chosen, seasonal menu (including a very tempting and very affordable prix fixe menu), people are flocking to Brassica Grill from around Greater Manchester.
Brassica Grill’s fixed price set menu is a great way to explore what this Stockport restaurant’s considered, gourmet offering is all about. Choose from two or three courses, from noon to 7pm, and expect nothing but locally-sourced ingredients brought together in dishes such as an Andalusian gazpacho, grilled Goosnargh chicken, and a delectable Yorkshire rhubarb and custard dessert. With Brassica Grill, down Shaw Road in Heaton Moor, you can find the best of British with an international set of inspirations at work in the kitchen.
Brassica Grill’s a la carte menu is equally down-to-earth, with a strong showing of the grilled meat and vegetable dishes that are this Stockport’s restaurants forte, and a similarly strong demonstration of how Faulkner can capably marry British cuisine with international flavours and textures. Grilled Wye Valley asparagus with portobello mushrooms and a truffled poached egg sauce are a great vegetarian starter. Brassica Grill’s popular grills keep the kitchen busy down Shaw Road, and the restaurant is already well-known among Heaton Moor locals for its 28-day aged steaks and chops, sourced from premium suppliers and proudly displayed separately from the mains. When it comes to these, Loch Duart salmon, Icelandic cod, Goosnargh chicken, and High Peak spring lamb are evidence of the attention that Brassica Grill pay to what makes it to table.
Amazing restaurant! Awesome food and staff, they really did actually care about what I thought of the meal, the wine and the service. Really good experience!
The Sunday roast was superb as always. Service is always friendly & efficient. My son had the steak which was cooked beautifuly & his chips where cooked to perfection. It was my mothers first visit & she was very impressed by the standard.
Fabulous meal as always. Really enjoyed it. Thanks to all the staff. We had a lovely anniversary meal. We'll be back! We feel so lucky having such a lovely restaurant close by!
Excellent service. We like the locally sourced ingredients and the food was very well cooked. Well priced and the staff were very efficient. Lovely to have such a good restaurant locally.
Book Sunday lunch at Brassica Grill for a table of four; the food was excellent, particularly the Ox Tongue salad starter and the Pork belly main course; both dishes were on the fixed price menu which offers a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains & 3 desserts with 2 courses for £14 and 3 courses charged at £17, this proves to be fantastic value for a bib gourmand rated restaurant. The staff were pleasant and knowledgeable, if a little slow due to a very busy looking service. Parking can be a little tricky given the restaurants location within a small row of shops in a residential area; however there is spaces to be found within a short walking distance. Overall, the food and drinks were of a high standard and good value and I would, therefore, have no hesitation in recommending Brassica Grill.
After hearing good things about this restaurant I thought I would give it a go. I was never convinced by the decor & it did put me off going. I was wrong ! You will not be disappointed. The food was excellent as was the wine we chose. The food was reasonably priced for the high standard that we received. I have paid more for not as good. The young manager that looked after us was a credit to the restaurant. Happy, knowledgeable & good service. We had a good evening. I don't like to recommend normally but this is one place that I will. We will be back again soon....
We started with aubergine, labneh and pane carasau, with lovely fresh and spicy flavours, two portions provided a nice light started for our party of four. We then had the most wonderful rib eye steak, tasty tender meat with a beautiful charcoal flavour on the outside, cooked exactly to our specification, both the medium-rare and rare versions were perfect. Good chips, excellent peppercorn and blue cheese sauces. The sides of mixed salad and buttered Savoy cabbage were a little on the bland side. Two of us managed pudding, the Braeburn apple soufflé was fluffy and light and the Norfolk treacle tart was heavenly. We had a couple of glasses of Pinot Noir El Viejo, very pleasant with the steak. The expresso coffees were excellent. Service was courteous and efficient.
We ordered the salt beef scotch eggs and aubergine to start - very good. For our main courses we had cod with spiced lentils, and a sirloin steak. The cod was cooked perfectly and the lentils were delicious but it also had an avocado and coriander side which was an odd pairing. The first steak was over cooked, I asked for medium-rare and it wasn't. However the second steak was beautifully cooked and had bags of flavour. The staff were really friendly even when I changed my mind and asked to cancel a desert ( if it wasn't too late). The good stuff was really good but it needs a few tweaks to make it great - some odd food combinations and harsh lighting.
This little gem of a restaurant certainly hits above its weight in both value for money and culinary experience. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the staff are efficient and very attentetive. The menu choice is really good and the food presentation and preparation is excellent. There is also a good choice of wines. We would certainly recommend this restaurant to family and friends and it is a perfect choice for an evening as a couple of for meeting up with friends. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
This was a birthday treat for my wife. All 4 of us had the special 3 courses for £17.50 each on a quiet Sunday afternoon, post Christmas. All 3 courses were delicious, very well presented and cooked to the highest standard, the standard you would expect in a city centre high class restaurant at twice the cost. Brassica will do very well serving the "Four Heatons" area of Stockport, Manchester and I would strongly recommend you give it a try.
