I am a huge fan of Hale – it’s a lovely village in Manchester that has a real sense of community, and is perfect for weekend brunching. However, I’ve just discovered my new favourite home, Morley’s of Hale, for a mid-week treat of pizza and prosecco.
Allow me to introduce you to Morley’s of Hale.
The menu is very European-influenced, thanks to their chef who is originally from Naples. Their menu has an incredible range to choose from. From small plates and salads, to sourdough stone baked pizzas, and grill items such as hanging kebabs and steaks.
Our meal started with Nocellara de delice Olives which are grown in the Valle del Belice area of south-western Sicily. They were served in a martini glass on ice, a concept that at first seemed really odd to me, but when I tasted my first olive I completely understood why because it tasted fresh and helped lock in the flavour.
When I saw the menu I knew that I needed to have one of their sourdough pizzas so I opted for the Pollo (chicken, chorizo and sweet red pepper drops). I made the right choice, it was incredible.
I often find when you order pizza from a restaurant with these type of toppings it can end up being very oil, and end up arriving slightly greasy, messy. But at Morley’s they have it just right. The base is delicious, the chorizo was beautiful sliced so it was nice and thin, and the chicken was perfectly proportioned.
Elsewhere around the table, we had a chicken hanging kebab and also the Tuna Steak. I managed to steal a bite from each and am now spoilt for choice when I come back next time. In fact, I think I quite fancy the monkfish hanging kebab.
Overall what I loved about Morley’s of Hale is it vibrant atmosphere!
I love that it has such a friendly and relaxing drinking and dining experience. It’s the perfect place to spend time with friends and family. I can’t wait to come back.
Check it out for yourself at Morley’s, 106-108 Ashley Rd, Hale, Altrincham WA14 2UN.
