Brilliant for all day 2 for 1 cocktails plus you can sit and people watch all day. It's in a central location so handy for all the shops too.

Thanks for leaving a review. We're so glad you enjoyed. People watching in the surrounds of the Town Hall's Gothic architecture with a cocktail or two is never a bad thing! More

We visited in for some lunch and as it was Valentine's day we decided to treat ourself with Valentines day's set menu! The food was delicious and came out quick! The drinks were even better especially that they are 2-4-1!

Booked in for tea. Not bad choice on menu, mostly burgers, chicken etc but all food was nice, service for drinks was slow but it was busy so we didn't mind. Would definitely go again.

We met here for a meal after some DIY at my daughters flat one evening. I was told that this was a nice place and had no idea that it was part of a large chain. We were seated straight away and asked what drinks we wanted. We ordered food an 10 minutes later we were eating. The Food tasted... More

Went to this restaurant with a group of 8 colleagues for a meal. This is a nice Slug & Lettuce in comparison to some, the decor was good and fresh. It was extremely empty but it was a Tuesday night in January. Apart from us there were about 10 other people in the whole place and as you would expect... More

I booked our works Christmas party here for a group of 18 of us. It was a Monday so food was 50%off and the cocktails are always buy one get one free so the value was amazing. The staff were great and couldn't do enough for us. As you can imagine 18 people all ordering cocktails can be a nightmare,... More

I love visiting this bar as they really do serve the best Martinis in Manchester and even better they are two for one every day. Close to where we stay in Spinningfields so a must if you are in the area. Can get very busy.

Our team put blood, sweat and tears (not literally) into our porn star martinis. They help keep down the bingo wings and build up the muscles, they do that many. It's great to know how well received tehy are and loved by all! More

We had a very nice lunch here and with 50% off on Mondays we thought the value for money was fantasfic. Staff were very friendly. I would say my only slight criticism was that my steak was more medium-rare than medium, which I had asked for, but I'm sure they would have cooked it more if I had asked. They... More
