Among those attending the launch were BBC Breakfast’s Naga Muchetty and Charlie Stayt and Hollyoak’s David Kennedy who soaked up the sunshine on the south facing terrace overlooking the Manchester Ship Canal.
The stylish décor of the restaurant extends out on to the Waterside Terrace, its south facing position making it the perfect place to soak up the sun. The new bar menu includes a variety of small plates, burgers, salad jars and bar snacks.
Pier Eight showcases the wonderful producers on its door step by including a variety of local suppliers across its menus. The launch was attended by Four Sis4ers distillery and Seven Brothers brewery who showcased their locally crafter beers and vast array of gin’s.
Mike Lee, Pier Eight’s manager said “We’re excited to be showcasing great local suppliers, it really is a celebration of the region’s best. I can’t wait to welcome residents and visitors of Salford Quays to our new terrace, summer is the perfect time to pop over for a G&T on our little sun trap.”
Guests at the launch where treated to a tour of Pier Eight’s secret roof garden where borage, nasturtium, mint, sage, fennel and cornflower are among some of the plants being grown in recycled pots.
Britain’s Got Talent Semi-Finalist, Rob King who works at The Lowry, serenaded guests with show tunes and power ballads, creating a chilled summer atmosphere and adding a little bit extra to the al-fresco dining experience.
Oliver Thomas, executive head chef, added, “The new menu really is perfect for a lunchtime treat or a business meeting. There’s something for everyone, from small plates perfect for sharing to burgers and summery salads for when you need something a little more substantial. And when eaten in the sun on our terrace overlooking the Manchester Ship Canal, well, I couldn’t think of a better combination.”
The new menu will be available Monday to Friday 12pm – 3pm & 5pm – 7.30pm on show nights and Saturday to Sunday 12pm – 7.30pm.
Guests to Pier Eight Waterside Terrace can sample the new menu this summer with a special offer, £18 for 4 small plates and 2 drinks, available until Mon 30 September 2019.
