The accolade has been received as part of VisitEngland’s Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme and recognises excellence in the specific food and drink element of the visitor experience.

The VisitEngland assessor felt that the People’s History Museum was truly deserving of the unique honour.  To achieve this accolade, the attraction demonstrated that it runs a professional, well-managed catering operation with skilled, friendly staff, and innovative, interesting menus with a strong emphasis on the provenance of local food that leave visitors eager to repeat their experience.

Janneke Geene, Head of Business Development at the museum, said: ‘The all-round visitor experience is incredibly important to us.  From the exhibitions and ambiance through to the facilities and food and beverage offer, we want to ensure excellence at every touchpoint.  We are absolutely thrilled that The Left Bank cafe bar has received the VisitEngland Quality Food & Drink Accolade and that our hard work and vision has been recognised.  This accolade is testament to the creativity and dedication of the catering team and we will display it with pride so that the people of Manchester and visitors to the city can be confident of the superb food and drink available on their doorstep.’

Tony Carr, Managing Director of Couture, the catering company that operates The Left Bank cafe bar commented: ‘We are thrilled that The Left Bank cafe bar has received the VisitEngland Quality Food & Drink Accolade.  We have worked hard to create an artisan-style cafe bar that is befitting of the unique and inspiring location of the People’s History Museum.  Including hand-crafted coffees, seasonal British cuisine, children’s menus and fine local ales, our food and drink offer is continually refreshed, suits all tastes and ages, and is underpinned by first class service.  We only use the highest quality ingredients, and these are locally sourced wherever possible.  It’s fantastic that our attention to detail in both food and service has been officially recognised.’

The Left Bank cafe bar is open from 8.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Saturday, and from 10.00am to 5.00pm on a Sunday and is home to Manchester’s sunniest riverside terrace.
