We were also hugely impressed by The Cracked Actor, which has a great outside seating area, ordering system and cocktail selection. Two brilliant choices if you're thinking about dipping a toe back in the outside world but feel a little nervous. @stopinstockport
We headed into Stockport for some socially distanced al fresco food & drink. Special mention needs to go to @BakersVaults for putting us at ease in a super safe environment.
