Our Story

Welcome to the Lamb of Tartary, a new brasserie & cocktail bar from the family behind the award-winning Edinburgh. Nestled in the heart of the famous Northern Quarter, just five minutes from Manchester Piccadilly Train Station, our establishment infuses heritage and modernity to offer a refined and accessible addition to Manchester’s cultural and culinary scene.

Our roots trace back to the historic Cottonopolis site, from which we have inherited a legacy of craftsmanship and community spirit. Akin to our previous incarnation, our name pays homage to Manchester’s history. The tale that was once told said that lambs grew on trees and came from cotton plants. The Lamb of Tartary is born out of what Cottonopolis once cultivated.


Admire the faux windows and airy linen curtains. Nestle in one of our quartz-patterned booths. Whether you’re seeking a leisurely lunch, a lively evening with loved ones or a place to unwind after a long day, The Lamb of Tartary beckons with open arms.
