Located in the fizz, crack and pop of the Northern Quarter, Common is one of the original Northern Quarter bars, but after a decade it needed a revamp and it got it big time with art and design central to the new look.
Now, with 30 additional covers, there's more room for a new all day food menu and next level coffee. The pandemic meant that Edge Street became a NQ hot spot for sunny outdoor eating and drinking.
If you're after a cheeky lunchtime beer, the well curated line up is handpicked by the team behind the award-winning Port Street Beer House serving all the usual pints, cocktails, softs, plus slices & whole pies from our NYC inspired, MCR made pals Nell’s Pizza.
Nell’s is a family business operated by Common’s owners, husband and wife team Charlotte and Jonny Heyes. The name is derived from the initials of their kids’ names, Nell, Edith and Lenny. It’s a real passion project born from a love of pizza and the joy of making and baking by hand and a huge amount of research has gone into perfecting the crusts. Nell’s is all about the best dough, the best ingredients, simply treated with care and attention. Dough is slow-fermented over 36 hours to allow for a perfect combination of strength for folding and lightness for enjoyment and uses 100% British organic flour.
The huge pizzas are available in 22″, 22″ half & half, and selected slices. Varieties range from the simple no cheese marinara to the very cheesy cheese and onion pie with roast garlic cream, mozzarella and Lancashire cheese.
