Few chefs in Manchester can claim to have catered to five of the last six American presidents, renowned boxers, and Manchester United footballers. Ryan Stafford, Executive Chef at Fold Bistro & Bottle Shop, is one such rarity who has carried his rich culinary experience back to his hometown of Marple.
Fold Bistro & Bottle Shop is precisely located in Marple Bridge, a picturesque fraction of Marple just across the River Goyt. Regardless, it’s merely a stone’s throw away from Marple train station, particularly convenient if you’re a local. Many of the menu’s items draw inspiration from cherished childhood delicacies like Scampi Fries, chippy teas, and Lancashire hot pot. However, these themes should not be taken verbatim; Fold presents a decidedly fine dining experience. As a bonus, Fold doubles as a bottle shop, making it practically obligatory to pick up a few bottles post-dinner.
