Hatch, Oxford Road, Manchester, M1 7ED – Visit Now


Like Hatch? Want more Hatch? You’re in luck. This peerless food, drink and retail destination on Oxford Road has now trebled in size, transforming into a mighty 11,840 sq foot neighbourhood on Manchester ‘s Oxford Road. That means ten more food brands, with 17 in total, plus 11 more retail outlets.

Hatch has trebled in size, meaning many many more food stalls and indie shops

Based beneath the Mancunian Way on Oxford Road, the new site includes a mix of giant double-decker shipping container restaurants, kiosk style units, bars, retailers, roof terraces, pop ups, creative workspace, event spaces, a live music stage and even a double-decker bus.

This is all home to the city’s best independent food and drink businesses, settling at Hatch for differing durations, meaning that every time you visit you’ll come across a whole new and ever-changing mix of exciting, independent street food and indie shops. If you haven’t been it’s about time you high-tailed it down to see what all the fuss is about. See below for a review of some of the most recent street food outlets cooking up a storm here.


Hatch is Manchester‘s pop-up retail, street food and drink destination on Oxford Road – housed in containers under the Mancunian Way – with a regular entertainment programme in the yard, from spoken word and DJs to live bands and talks about architecture.

The Get Chucked BBQ and Burger Joint has arrived at Hatch, offering the best burgers in Manchester to city centre diners

When it comes to street food, there are four food stalls serving up delicious bites to eat, now including new arrival Get Chucked. Hatch trebles in size this June, which will see even more food brands join the family. Here’s the lowdown on the current food outlets.


Get Chucked was a sensation in Urmston, and now the Get Chucked BBQ and Burger Joint has arrived at Hatch, offering the best burgers in Manchester to city centre diners. Owners Scott Power and Sean Robinson started their journey as the team behind hotdog street food trader Dirty Dogs, before opening a permanent site in Urmston. After a year in their original 26 cover venue, they moved to a bigger two-floor 78 cover site on Flixton Road. At Hatch they’re serving up a menu of 100% freshly-ground, secret-blend beef burgers. Everything on the menu is made using the freshest local produce.


The name might be a mouthful, and so are their fries. Seasoned: Nothing But Fries is here with a whole new take on the humble french fry as they bring an array of flavours to the bag of chips. Each portion of specialist fries comes with its own bespoke dip. They create as the mood takes them so you’ll always find something fun, exclusive and delicious at their new Hatch shop.


Cyprus Kouzina is a family-run business that fuses fresh local produce with fine Cyprus-imported ingredients to create an authentic, Cyprian street food concept. Expect an eclectic range of dishes including Horiatiki village salad, and tsipoura – a whole grilled seabream dish, plus classics like chicken souvlaki and grilled halloumi.


T’Arricrri’s Sicilian brothers Riccardo and Romeo remain at Hatch with their popular arancini operation. Specialising in arancini of multiple varieties (with meat, fish and veggie options), juices made with Sicilian fruits and cannolis, these chatty brothers are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face with their authentic arancini as well as their passion for Italian and Sicilian food and drink.

Plus there are plenty more outlets, from espresso bars to bars and shops to browse and buy gifts from independent producers.
