Altrincham is one of the original market towns. It's charter dates back to 1290. Situated at the intersection of the fertile Cheshire farm belt and the commercial commuter zone of Manchester the town has a long and important history.

Altrincham Market is now at the heart of the re-invention of the town to make it 'the' modern market town.

Weekends host the very popular themed weekend markets covering regional food producers, vintage fashion and furniture, home house & garden and contemporary craft.

Market House has been converted into a "permanent gusto hub and canteen where people can eat from a variety of top notch food slingers" (according to Olive Magazine).

Market House is home to 10 independent quality food operators including Honest Crust wood fired pizza "among the country's best"; Wolfhouse Kitchen (former Rose Bakery pastry & savoury chefs); Tender Cow (rare breed flat iron steak & chips); Jack in the Box (craft beers); Reserve Wines (BBC Food & Drink Kate Goodman's wine bar/shop); Great North Pie Co. (multi award winning pies); Sam Joseph (hand made chocolates) and Market House Coffee (serving Atkinsons of Lancaster coffee).

There are no table reservations, and at peak times it can be very, very busy!

  • Ventured in for breakfast on a recommendation from family members we stayed with in Hale. We heard lots of great things and we weren't disappointed. The choice was great, the atmosphere was amazing with people young and old , couples and families all sat down with great food. After our poached eggs and Avocado‚Äč (this is really popular) smoothies we headed for a walk around the market and got chatting to some of the amazingly talented people who had on offer everything from homemade pop up cards to glass that had been made in a kilns in back gardens. Next time we're up we'll make it down for dinner and a drink.
  • Great atmosphere, food and drinks. If you're lucky on a sunny day you can sit outside and enjoy your coffee or cold drink, the Belgian bars are within an arms reach too. Lots of interesting traders! Pay and display parking around Altrincham is easy! No hassle, it's definitely worth visiting.
  • This place never fails to satisfy! The coffee is always amazing, and my go to brunch is the avocado and poached egg. Great any time of the day; in the morning for breakfast through to after work drinks. Just make sure you are patient while waiting for a table, it's worth the wait.
  • One of the most popular places to go in Altrinchan. Loads of choice of drinks and food, great for Families no need to book. Only downside is you may have to fight for a table as it's so popular!
  • I really like the Altrincham Market place. It's a full of good restaurant's and Italian pizza restaurant to. You can choose your freshly make pizza topics. The mixture of different food and drink it's all around you....
