'The Heatons' covers an easily accessible area between Stockport and Manchester and comprises of Heaton Moor, Heaton Mersey, Heaton Chapel and Heaton Norris.
Heaton Moor is an increasingly exciting food destination with a great community feel - much helped by the revival of the Savoy Cinema. The perfect introduction is Shaw Road, which boasts Stockport Bottle, Pokusevski's Deli, Heaton's Tandoori and the Heaton Producers Market, while Easy Fish Company is a top spot for fish lovers.
Across the A6 in Heaton Chapel, Heaton Hops and Feed General Store and Kitchen are must-visits. Down the roadie Heaton Norris are also two outstanding traditional boozers – The Nursery Inn (mid 20th century heritage decor) and The Magnet (terrific beer selection). You won't go hungry or thirsty in this area.
Here's our pick of the best Heaton's hotspots.
