Bars at Stanneylands Manchester Airport


Unwind and dine any time of the day

What better sign of a good bar, than a baby grand piano welcoming you at the entrance? The Calico Cafe Bar serves relaxed, informal daytime-dining in a number of rooms that span several centuries too. A small room towards the rear of the Stanneylands exudes 16th century heritage, while the conservatory extension at the front of the hotel has been added in more recent years, and is light and contemporary in style. The airy and refreshing Calico lounge is a relaxing space to while away the hours, especially if someone is tickling the ivories on the baby grand. This elegant instrument transforms this airport hotel into an harmonic haven in which to eat and drink.

Enjoy a melody with your meal

Work up your appetite by exploring the secret pathways and natural pond in this leafy eden in the woodlands, and nibble a light bite at lunch time from the selection of sandwiches and sharing platters. There’s the Somerset brie with tomato and apple chutney & rocket sandwich, or the oak-smoked salmon and herb omelette to tempt your tastebuds. Alternatively, choose a sharing platter such as the Asian medley of vegetable spring rolls, filo-wrapped prawns, satay chicken skewers and thai fish cakes with sweet chilli dip. Daytime main meals include the traditional homemade beef burger with bacon, smoked applewood cheddar & thick cut chips, or the vegetarian fusilli pasta with woodland mushrooms, white wine cream and basil pesto.

The bar proper offers a selection of hot and cold beverages, including a vast selection of wines and champagnes, which are all available by the glass, and beers and lager either bottled or on draught. Spirits and soft drinks are also available.
