Discover Tapas at La Mancha

La Mancha Tapas bar was established in 1998. We have taken the humble tapa also known as an appetiser to a different level by producing authentic Spanish cuisine in racione portions for the concept of sharing.

We have created in the heart of Rochdale, a relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere – ideal for either a snack and a glass of excellent Spanish Vino or a party night out. Our friendly staff look forward to welcoming you at the Restaurant.

About Tasca & Tapas…

What separates a tasca from a bar elsewhere in the world is its tapas. The delightful tradition of serving small snacks with drinks is found all over Spain, but attains its greatest heights in the cities of Madrid, Barcelona, Seville Santiago de Compostela and the smaller, sophisticated San Sebastián.

Tapa means to cover or lid, and the association with appetizers is thought to have come from the old habit of placing a slice of bread or a piece of ham on top of one’s wine glass (probably to keep out insects). The edible “lid” was the precursor of modern-day tapas, which now number in the hundreds in variety. One bar in Madrid offers over eighty different tapas on the menu!


We are located in a historical part of Rochdale opposite the Bull Brow, which dates back to 1820. It is believed to have acquired its name from cattle brought to the nearby slaughterhouse. This pathway led to the River Roch (which has recently been reinstated through the centre of Rochdale) where bull baiting was a regular attraction until the fatal event of November 8th 1820 when the parapet of the bridge fell killing many people marking the end of the savage past time in Rochdale.
