Aiden Byrne's Restaurant MCR closed for final time

Aiden Byrne's Restaurant MCR, formerly Manchester House, has closed again, with the chef saying this time it's for good.

Just over a year after the site relaunched, the Manchester Evening News has reported that a two-month rolling lease had made it too precarious to invest in the site.

"We tried our hardest to bring that phoenix from the flames but it wasn't meant to be," Byrne told the publication. However, he added that a new opening is already in the pipeline.

Byrne left Manchester House in 2017 to join D&D London's 20 Stories, also in Manchester, after five years of overseeing the then Living Ventures-owned restaurant. Following Manchester House being placed into administration in 2018, Byrne announced a return to the site with private investors funding the relaunch.

The chef also operates the Church Green in Lymm, Cheshire.
