From the team behind Altrincham Market and Manchester’s Mackie Mayor, Picturedrome is a food hall set in what was Macclesfield’s oldest cinema. With a concept that has already proven popular elsewhere, the fashionably outfitted Picturedrome has quickly become one of the town’s most popular foodie destinations. Diners simply choose a seat, order and pay one of the different independent stalls and wait for the servers to deliver their meal — preferably with a glass of something refreshing.
The range on offer suits casual meet-ups or longer sessions, with the different specialist food and drink stalls ensuring that there is something for everybody to enjoy. Visitors can choose from tried and tested Alty Market and Mackie Mayor veterans such as Honest Crust’s supreme, soft crust sourdough pizzas, Tender Cow’s melt in the mouth steaks, or Fin’s selection of freshly caught fish and seafood.

There are also local newcomers such as Flour Water Salt, who have expanded from their nearby bakery to bring Picturedrome a full range of specialist sourdoughs, flaky pastries and hot beverages. Terroni supplies a taste of Italy with hearty pasta dishes from a constantly revolving menu. Meanwhile Altrincham Market fave, Ruben’s Levantine Grill & Mezze bring colorful, vibrant food straight from the mediterranean.
With so much on offer, it’s advisable to mix and match or steal and borrow from your dining companions — assuming they are the sharing sort. Both child and dog-friendly, things can get a little chaotic at Picturedrome — especially at busy times. Our advice is to settle in, enjoy good food and good company, and hey, a few rounds from either Reserve Wines or craft beer gurus Jack in the Box can help make everything run a little smoother.
