If there's one food that Northerners all famously rally around, it's gravy. We can't get enough of the stuff. It's the perfect accompaniment to everything from pie to Yorkshire puddings.
And now, finally, it seems like gravy might be getting the recognition it deserves in the form of a bar dedicated to gravy which is rumoured to be launching in Manchester's Northern Quarter next month.
The Gravy Bar has a very stripped down website which isn't revealing any details about the proposed new restaurant until it launches in April. The restaurant claims to be paying 'homage to the finest part of the Sunday roast', but there are very few details to go on. The location, menu, and any other details are completely scarce.
In addition, the company's Twitter feed is very light on details and some of their tweets seem pretty facetious if you ask us.
In addition, the bar's logo is seriously mysterious. What's with all those dashes? It definitely looks like some kind of code if you ask us:

In addition, Manchester Evening News haven't been able to find out any additional details about the bar, despite reaching out to them.
And, of course, with a launch date scheduled for 'April' we wouldn't be surprised to find out that this whole thing is actually nothing but an elaborate April Fool's joke.
That being said, if this bar is real then you can definitely count on seeing Pretty52 there just about every lunch time since our office is in the area anyway, and we love us some gravy!
What do you reckon? Could it be real? Is it all some kind of horrible practical joke? If the restaurant really does open, would you be tempted to make a visit? Sound off in the comments!
