Last week, gravy connoisseurs lost their minds when news dropped that Manchester is apparently opening its arms to The Gravy Bar.

The eatery will do exactly what it says on the tin when it launches in April but up until yet, very few details have been offered about what we can expect, or if we can expect anything at all.

Some people have already questioned whether it's part of an elaborate April Fools' joke, and now that we've had a nosy at the menu, we're inclined to agree.

Let's break it down.

As well as the basics - pies and gravy - you can bring your own pie in if the ones on offer aren't doing it for you and they'll pour a load of gravy over it, or if you want to sack off the pie altogether, you can just bring in a thermos and they'll fill it with gravy for you. Nah.

Then there's the Founders Reserve gravy, which is 'cask aged to perfection, finished in sherry casks for a rounder, fuller flavour'. Nah.

The Dipping Chips are quintuple-shallow-fried and there are 'mysterious onions'. Nah. Nah. Nah.

This a lie, people. A sick, twisted lie. They're f*cking with you and your love of gravy.

We hope we're wrong, with every fibre of our being. But sadly, this seems too idyllic to be true.
