Didsbury station on a long-closed line into Manchester has long vanished, but its imposing railway hotel, now ‘The Met’, remains, proudly declaring its Victorian heritage through its decorative floor tiling, ornate windows and huge, antique-filled rooms. Customers, mainly young and cosmopolitan, come partly for the local cask ales, continental beers, 28 wines by the glass and adventurous spirits collection, and partly for smoked haddock fishcakes, Frosty's sausages and Thai-spiced tofu skewers. Family Sunday lunch is a big draw, too.
