Canvas Social are offering an irresistible price for steak and chips at its swanky new restaurant space.

Canvas on Oxford Road is fast becoming one of the hottest self-contained event spaces in the city, with a menu to make your mouth water — all for a reasonable price. This stylish new venue opened its doors last summer in the city’s new fashionable district at Circle Square.

It’s already known for its vibrant entertainment held across several floors and its spacious, minimalist industrial style. But what you might not know so much about this cool hangout is the restaurant upstairs, now called Canvas Social after having an overhaul.

This airy dining space has a classy feel and a more relaxed vibe to it, where you can chill amongst the art as you slump into the soft leather chairs. The new kitchen team at Canvas Social is Ellie Grimshaw and Kyle Wilson, the same people behind the nearby pop-up shipping container village, Hatch.

After their recent venture, Block Steak Shop, the pair have now moved into this new space at Canvas Social serving French-style steak frites alongside its North American cousin, the Philly cheesesteak sandwich, and somewhere in between the two cuisines, the LA-born French dip sandwich. 

If those work lunchtime salads just haven’t offered you enough substance and you’re looking for a treat involving some stodgy goodness, the steaks here will definitely hit the spot. While they’re not your special occasion fanfare steaks — like the kind you’ll find at Hawksmoor — they are juicy and come in a variety of servings to please both your palette and stomach.

Meat is locally reared, grass fed, free range and dry aged sourced from top Manchester butchers Littlewoods. A perfectly cooked bavette (£12.50) or flat iron steak (£10.50) are served with your choice of sauce (they do a creamy peppercorn) and a big rustling pile of skinny rosemary and sea salt fries. It’s a cracking midweek dinner for just over a tenner.

The drinks menu has had an overhaul too and if you’re watching the pennies, you’ll like the price of the cocktails. For £4.50 you can get any cocktail, including a Pornstar Martini, and the wine list is easy on the wallet too.

An Entreflores Crianza D.O.C Rioja to accompany your bavette steak and chips costs £4.50 and is the most expensive glass of wine on the menu. The house red and white at £12 a bottle is an absolute steal bringing a steak dinner for two with a bottle of wine to well under £40 — get in!

If you’re hungover or wanting to line your stomach before going to a gig downstairs, you might want to go for the extra carbs that a Philly cheesesteak sarnie provides. Seared steak is stuffed into a sub roll with fried peppers, onions and melted mozzarella cheese. It’s also served alongside those house fries seasoned with rosemary salt and is even cheaper at £10 exactly. The French dip is the same price and served with a pot of beef jus (gravy to you and me) for dunking.

If you aren’t into steak, there’s also a fried buttermilk chicken ciabatta with buffalo sauce and melted mozzarella. Or you can get stuck into some loaded beef dripping fries topped with either hoisin duck or chorizo.

Veggies can get in on the action too, replacing the steak with meaty Portobello mushrooms. And if that’s not enough, sides include buttery, spiced corn ribs and deep-fried dauphinoise potatoes.

Canvas Social is open Tuesday-Sunday with food served from midday-9pm. The bar is open until midnight. Find out what’s on or book a table at the Canvas website.

Manchester's Finest Group

Louisiana-style fried chicken chain Popeyes has announced plans to open more restaurants this year, including a second site in Greater Manchester – which opens tomorrow, Friday April 26th.

The chain opened its 33rd UK site in Piccadilly Gardens in October last year, which proved an instant hit with visitors forming queues along the street and around the corner just to sample its classic Southern fried chicken.

Regular customers have learned to take early lunches to avoid the rush as it fills up with hungry people every day.

Manchester’s Finest Group

Now its new drive-thru, located on Bury New Road, is opening tomorrow, Friday April 26th, with both the doors and lanes officially opening from 11am.

Greater Manchester and the North West’s first drive-thru location, the restaurant will mark the brand’s 11th opening in 2024 and 47th site in the UK.

And of course, they’re giving away FREE chicken on opening day, with the first three people queuing both on-foot and in cars winning free Chicken Sandwiches for a whole year.

As well as that, the first 25 customers in both queues will also be rewarded with a free Chicken Sandwich and exclusive Popeyes merchandise.

Popeyes UK

You’ll have to get there early if you want to be one of the first three, however, as fans queued for more than 16 hours when the Piccadilly Gardens site opened last year.

And from Saturday, April 27th, you’ll also be able to grab breakfast at the new restaurant.

The ‘Brekkie’ menu features British Breakfast classics with a New Orleans twist, like the Big Cajun Breakfast Roll, Cajun Hash Browns and Nutella-topped buttermilk biscuits.

Breakfast will be available until 11am every day, and will even include a Bacon Roll Meal for just £1.99, which includes a Bacon Roll, a Hash Brown and a drink.

Popeyes UK

For those who have not yet had the pleasure of sampling Popeyes’ crunchy flavoursome goodness, its menu features classic offerings like the Chicken Sandwich, with signature 12-hour marinated chicken and original Southern biscuits and gravy. 

Additionally, a variety of side dishes like mac & cheese, mash with Cajun gravy, and original biscuits will be served, alongside milkshakes in various flavours including vanilla, chocolate, mocha, and specialities like Oreo, Lotus Biscoff, and strawberry cheesecake.

What’s more, fans across the UK can now start their day with a Cajun twist – with Popeyes Breakfast Menu now available nationwide.

Manchester’s Finest Group

Tom Crowley, Popeyes UK Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Following the success of our Manchester Piccadilly restaurant, we are thrilled to bring our newest Popeyes to Bury New Road, marking our third restaurant in the North West.

“Our new restaurant will also be a Drive-Thru, meaning customers in Greater Manchester can enjoy our Famous Louisiana Chicken by dining in, via the Drive Thru lane, or by ordering online for kerbside collection.

“Our most recent openings have been some of the biggest to date, not just in the UK but for Popeyes globally, and we’re confident that Bury New Road will be just as popular.”

If you fancy winning free Chicken Sandwiches for a year, but don’t have time to queue up outside the new restaurant, then keep your eyes peeled on our Instagram tomorrow, Friday April 26th, as we’re going to be running a competition where you can win just that!

T&Cs: Offer entitles the holder to 3 free Chicken Sandwiches per week for 52 weeks. The 12 months starts on receipt of the email containing the first 3 links. Available in any Popeyes Louisiana Chicken UK restaurant, only on our Classic or Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Non transferable, not valid in conjunction with any other offer. Offer is redeemable only when you order online for collection through our website. Over 18s only.
