Lots of people enjoy a meal here before attending a concert in the RNCM, and it does get very busy. Service is friendly, and sometimes a bit frantic -lots of young waiting staff dashing about. However, it isn't the sort of place you would choose for a long, romantic meal but it is a good place to enjoy some tasty... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant during the brass festival. Very good value for money, excellent waiter service, a fabulous gin selection from the bar and a good pudding-perfect!!

The Brodsky is situated inside the Royal Northern College of Music, which makes it an unusual and interesting location for a business lunch. The food is freshly prepared and of a high quality. There are also vegetarian option, which are really tasty, such as a haloumi cheese risotto. Try the spicy tomato soup and a salad for a light lunch.... More

We returned for a couple of meals at Brodsky, and were gratified to find that it is just as good value as ever. One or two tweaks to the menu have made it even better, and the service was, as ever, very good, even on a 'fully-booked' occasion. As a pre-concert venue it is very good, as service is brisk,...

Decided at short notice to have dinner here with my wife, as we had no time to eat at home and get there on time. Had to be squeezed in at the bar, as it was fully booked. Never eaten here since its upgrade years ago, and was pleasantly surprised. Good selection of standard English dishes, at very reasonable prices... More

Delightful meal before a concert at the RNCM. Excellent service. Impressive menu. First visit to the restaurant and I would be happy to dine there again. Delicious starter - ideal portion size. Mains were beautifully presented. My companions enjoyed desserts,I was content with coffee. Extensive gluten - free menu printed separately. Staff happy to advise and check with the kitchen... More

Found this place by accident when looking for somewhere to have dinner. The food was good atmosphere a little sterile as no mood music. A little strange when the restaurant is situated in the Royal Northern College of Music. Staff were friendly and not intrusive whilst dininig. My partner had Char Sui Pork with Belly Pork Vegetable Rice and Pak... More
