Dua Lipa saw dining at the award-winning Stockport restaurant

Just a few weeks ago, pop superstar Dua Lipa started the British and Irish part of her Future Nostalgia tour at Manchester’s AO Arena. And it seems that during her time in the city, she added a quick trip to Stockport to her itinerary.

There are plenty of places to eat and drink in Stockport, but on this occasion the singer hit one of Greater Manchester’s most talked about restaurants – Where The Light Gets In. When she shares her visit on her Instagram stories, the singer can be seen sitting at one of the restaurant tables and enjoying a drink against the backdrop of industrial bricks and plant life.

The snap was shared by Stop in Stockport, a website that regularly shares news and updates about the city, including the latest hospitality and retail openings. On Twitter, they said, “So @dualipa was in Stockport last week @wtlgi #stockport.”

Sitting Proudly Rostron Brow, Where The Lights Gets In was launched by chef Samuel Buckley in 2016 and has amassed a strong legion of foodie fans. Its fine dining experience has received rave reviews from national and local restaurant reviewers since opening, and last January it was awarded a ‘green’ Michelin star in recognition of its unique focus and commitment to sustainability.

The Stockport-based restaurant serves a daily changing menu created around the ingredients available each day, and the Stockport-based restaurant delivers products from sustainable seafood providers as well as from its own farm and from The Landing, a community growing area located on the roof of the city’s Merseyway Shopping Center.

The old coffee warehouse, which only seats 30 diners, is slightly off the beaten track but can be seen from Lower Hillgate below, thanks to the yellow light from the dining room. The restaurant’s creators are also set to open Yellowhammer, a new bakery project on the street below in collaboration with ceramist Joe Hartley and baker Rosie Wilkes, in the coming months.

The community’s bakery, delicatessen and pottery studio in Stockport’s Old Town will take over the old Tudor Cafe at 15 Lower Hillgate. Although an official opening date has not been confirmed, the owners have been busy taking the building back to its former Edwardian glory.

When it opens, customers can expect delicacy sandwiches, baked treats and pies and sourdough bread, presented in handmade pottery made by Joe, who will also host pottery workshops. A number of workshops and events will also take place on Fridays.

Dua Lipa is set to play the final two UK dates tonight and tomorrow at The O2 in London. She will then embark on the European part of her tour, stopping at cities including Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin.
