With Independents' Day UK weekend approaching, we asked Bury residents what their favourite cafés and restaurants are in the borough.

The business awareness weekend falls on Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3 and is a campaign that exists to support and promote independent firms across the UK.

There were many places in Bury that were mentioned by residents but three eateries were named multiple times.

Leckenby’s situated on Minden Parade in Mill Gate Shopping Centre was the place listed the most.

Popular for their afternoon tea as well as their high-quality food and drink, it’s the place to go if you want a traditional English tearoom.

Many comments praised the cleanliness of the tearoom as well as the friendliness of the staff while someone said a trip to Bury wouldn’t be complete without going to Leckenby’s.

One said: “Leckenby’s restaurant in Bury.

"Lovely relaxing space, the food is just so well presented and good quality. Every member of staff is excellent and attentive.”

Another added: “I love Leckenby’s, the best, classy, wonderful food and great service, the cleanliness is second to none!”

Rowntrees Café at The Rock was also highly praised.

The café serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is popular for their fish and chips.

Their selection of foods was applauded as was their friendly and efficient staff.

One said: “Rowntrees cafe on The Rock has got to be the best cafe I’ve been to in Bury. Lovely food and friendly staff.”

A second said: “Lovely food and friendly staff! Can't beat it!”

The Barista Café Bar on The Rock was also mentioned and is known as Bury’s hidden gem.

The café champions its use of fresh and local produce to create a menu that offers breakfasts, gastro lunches and light meals.

The café offers the "ultimate casual dining experience" and takes pride in their great customer service and food.

One commented: “The food is excellent, and they always have different specials on.

"The staff and the owner Vicky are very friendly and attentive. This is my go-to place when visiting Bury.”
