Review: Three Little Words’ Sunday lunch

Review: Three Little Words’ Sunday lunch

Three Little Words’ Sunday lunch is back and we were invited to review for you here.

Nestled just off Deansgate and in between the Great Northern Warehouse and Manchester Central, this lovingly restored series of archways is immediately impressive and the equally stunning long bar beckoned us for pre-lunch drinks.

As the home of award winning Manchester Gin, we were encouraged to sample one of the many recommended pairings.

The 'Raspberry Infusion' and a 'Hacienda' (homage to the world famous nightclub that used to be around the corner) were selected and with my safely distanced, household bubble, were thoroughly enjoyed.

The team here are also helpful, friendly and welcoming and have an impressive track record in our city.

Initially greeted by Kate, together with Robyn we were escorted to our window table with some light, Sunday afternoon banter, all of which helped the mood and feel of the place.

70's classics were the soundtrack of the day. You can't beat a bit of Chic or Kool and the Gang...

There is a choice of beef or a vegetarian “roast”, which on this visit were a portobello mushroom stuffed with roast vegetables. Both came with all the usual accompaniments and gravy and we also ordered a side of cauliflower cheese.

My vegetarian option worked very well. The mushroom was nice and juicy and the filling was topped with pomegranate seeds which added a good crunch. The cauliflower was deliciously creamy and was a perfect add-on. I chose a glass of the SEM RESERVAS - QUINTA DA BOAVISTA red which lived up to its fruitcake, rich and aromatic description.

The roast beef was finely carved and cooked to order. Delicious and light of the palette. The accompanying seasonal vegetable selection were all nicely cooked and the enormous Yorkshires were proabaly the finest ever tasted. Sorry Mum..

AREAL - QUINTA DA POUSADA  complemented the beef perfectly.

Desserts are chosen from the main menu. I had the lemon and lime baked cheesecake (vegetarian and gluten free), which, in haste, I’d started to eat before remembering to take a picture. The citrus came through well. The other choice we made was the apple and mango sorbet (vegan and gluten free) which was topped with thyme brittle.

If neither the beef or vegetarian options appeal, the main menu is available until 6pm. This includes chicken and trout so just about all bases are covered.

Just as were leaving, Chef was duly introduced and suitably pleased with the compliments served.

What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon in these uncertain times.

Highly recommended.
