Altrincham has something to offer whether you’re in town for the day to watch your team play against Altrincham FC or staying overnight before a Manchester United at Old Trafford, a Cricket match at Lancashire Country Cricket Ground, Ice Hockey at Manchester Storm or heading over to Manchester City

At Altrincham HQ we’ve lived in the town for nearly 40 years, so here’s our Away Fans Guide To Altrincham

 

 


THE GROUNDS THEMSELVES

Get down early, soak up the atmosphere, get involved in the pre-match banter

Whether it’s Moss Lane (now called The JD Davidson Stadium) or Silverblades Ice Rink for Manchester Storm – both venues have a range of drinks and food available

 

Pitta Crepe Flowers

BEST PLACE TO GET FOOD NEAR THE TRAIN STATION
Pitta Crepe did streetfood way before it became a buzzword and excuse to overprice everything

If you fancy something alternative, fresh, healthy and tasty at great prices then look no further!

Serving a range of sweet crêpes and flat bread wraps (including Falafel, Moroccan lamb, Chicken tikka and other homemade fillings)

The wraps will easily fill you up before a few beers at the match, but we’d recommend being indulgent and going for a meal deal with fries as well

Pitta Crepe is literally 1 minutes walk from the station – look for Pure Gym and head up the slope next to it. You can’t miss this tasty streetfood van

 

Altrincham Clock

NEAREST PUB TO THE TRAIN STATION
The nearest pub to the Station is literally just across the road from the Station and is called … erm … the Station

If you’re looking for a traditional boozer it doesn’t get more traditional than the Station

On a Sunday you’ll hear Karaoke blasting out most of the day

Other traditional pubs within walking distance of the Station are The Malt Shovels, The Roebuck and The Bricklayers Arms

And if you’re looking for the nearest pub to Moss Lane / Altrincham FC they have the King George right next to the ground

Altrincham Fish Bar

BEST PLACE TO GET CHIPPY TEA
Altrincham doesn’t have a bad chippy – we might be on the border of Cheshire / Manchester, but chips are something we do well

So wherever you choose in Altrincham for chips you can can’t go wrong

The nearest chippy to the station is Kingfisher on Cross Street and the nearest chippy to Moss Lane is The Good Catch

But if we had to name the best chippy in Altrincham though it would have to be Altrincham Fish Bar up near the Market on Greenwood Street

It’s been in town for over 100 years and does the sort of chips you remember from childhood when chips used to come in newspapers

Burrito Picante TACOS

BEST PLACE TO GET FOOD ON THE GO
If you didn’t choose Pitta Crepe before as a must visit, the same team run Burrito Picante on Railway Street

Think about the best burrito you’ve had before in your life – raise the bar – and you have Burrito Picante

Offering a range of burritos, nachos and naked burritos it’s something fresh for the town and offers really good value for money

Open till 9pm Monday – Saturday it’s a must

Essence Altrincham

BEST PLACE TO GET A CURRY
If you want the best place to get a curry in Altrincham it’s well worth the taxi ride to this out of town restaurant

Essence is situated on Manchester Road and is about 10 minutes walk / 3 minutes taxi ride out of town towards Broadheath

It’s been a family business for around 30 years now and is a firm favourite with locals over the years

Choosing Essence is easy – the only difficult decision here is whether to choose a Cobra or a Kingfisher

Get yourself down to see Amin and the lads – note it’s only open from 5.30pm Mon-Sat and 4pm onwards on Sundays

Con Club Alty Beer

BEST PLACE TO GET CRAFT ALE / REAL ALE
Altrincham has a lot of Craft Ale, Real Ale and Belgian Beer bars

So if you like beers like Joy Diversion, Hoppy Monday and Juice Springsteen look below

Costellos tends to be a popular choice for Altrincham FC Fans

The market has a host of bars with bars such as Pi, The Con Club, The Belgian Bar and Mort Subite

Whilst Stamford New Road  and Kings Court has the likes of Rustic, Batch Bottle Store, Libero and The Cheshire Tap

 

Kings Court SUN

BEST PLACE TO DRINK OUTSIDE
IF it’s a sunny day you probably want somewhere you can have a few pints outdoors

In Altrincham there are 2 main places for drinking outdoors with Goose Green and Kings Court

In Goose Green you get the aforementioned Costellos alongside House, The Green Room, King Pong, Tavern On The Green and Traders Tiki Bar

In Kings Court you get aforementioned Cheshire Tap with Kings Cafe and The Ivy League

Both areas are open to late so if you’re staying over in Altrincham then you can party till 2am or 3am

Altrincham Market

BEST PLACE TO TAKE THE FAMILY
If you’re looking for somewhere family friendly there are plenty of choices in Altrincham

Wetherspoons is about 5 minutes walk from the station

Nandos has just opened and is right near the train station – but is proving so popular at the moment there are longer waiting times at peak times

We can’t have a guide to Altrincham without mentioning Altrincham Market and the revived market house

It was a big turning point for Altrincham and features a glut of foodie places offering pizza, pies, steak et all

Opposite to the Market is The Con Club Altrincham which is perfect on a Summers Day to sit outside in and friendly inside for winters nights
