Astoria Urmston

Francesca Wilson
The Astoria

Having a local is always ideal. You never have to venture too far for a tipple, and when you’re about to topple, home is just a hop skip and a jump away. Urmston is fast-becoming a smorgasbord of eateries and specialist shops to appease its residents and you can find Astoria right in the heart of it. 

We wandered in on a Friday night and were greeted by the soothing jams of your favourite 90s r&b playlist. When it comes to decor, it’s neon sign aplenty and loaded with features in millennial pink just waiting to fill your next Instagram square.

Astoria unveiled their brand new menu earlier this month and it is a selective cocktail of social nibbles and large plates. Settled in with a couple of gins and Sean Paul on the speakers, a platter of best bites arrived at our table, the entirety of which was demolished in a matter of minutes.

The platter was both a confusion of locales and a cornucopia of flavours, undisputedly tasty, and the perfect accompaniment to both side orders of gin and gossip

Gyoza, croquetas (filled with gruyere and well worth a second order), Katsu chicken, Korean chicken and battered fish… the platter was both a confusion of locales and a cornucopia of flavours. It was undisputedly tasty, however, and the perfect accompaniment to both side orders of gin and gossip. 

Astoria Urmston is your local for easy eats, a banging selection of lyrical genius rhymes (primarily the greatest hits of Destiny’s Child circa 1999) and a lip-licking selection of cocktails. Find it on Flixton Road and book ahead to get a spot under the cherry blossom tree.
