This is an old favourite of mine. It's still good, but it does seem to have lost some of its lustre. Listening to a young Manc waitress giving us her recommendation and rattling off what she, obviously, had been told was excruciating - the words she spoke were so obviously not hers. But she was efficient and pleasant though. The... More

Eaten here before and always enjoyed the food. Quality is excellent and all food is very tasty .... Not one of our party of eight could fault the food. We had the 3 course set menu for £22.00 or 2 course for £17.50 approx. The steak added a £1.50 extra charge. Although the meal quality is excellent , I would... More

Booked a table for 15 of us for a Christmas get together with friends. We had pre booked a three course dinner, choosing ahead of our visit. I wasn't expecting a great meal as it was a Christmas themed menu but was amazed at how good all of meals were presented and tasted. We were served by a fabulous waiter... More

Took my wife and our 12 year old twins to venerate their triple birthday day to our favourite restaurant in Manchester. We have been going her for circa 15 years. The staff were so attentive, the twins ordered a Mocktail and the waitress was really good at advising which they would like and they were them offered on the house.... More

We booked a dinner for 31st of December for two people. When we came to restaurant and we saw that it was not busy and we asked if one of our friend can join us. As an answer we got a really rude and unprofessional behaviour towards us from the hostess, named Nicol and she is a reception manager as... More

Had a really excellent evening. Staff very attentive on arrival with coats and drinks. Meal was superb, Asian platter delightful and chateaubriand one of the best we have had. The waiter, Stuart, was friendly and helpful, and the wine very enjoyable and the cost altogether was very reasonable for a Manchester city centre restaurant! We will certainly be going again!

Went between Xmas and new year for a friend's birthday so it was quiet as is to be expected for the time of year. Only one gripe, the ridiculously small amount of paper thin toast supplied with the pate. This seems to be a common problem with restaurants these days, give the customer a big slab of pate and then... More

I went here for a birthday meal. I don't live in Manchester and was finding it hard to find a place to book around Christmas time. I was advised to book the outside area with the external heating but when we got there the heaters were so hot I felt like I was going to faint. The heaters and light... More

My girlfriend and I fall into the late 20s early 30s bracket and I have been visiting here since i was a teenager. Fantastic food menu, not too much to make it difficult to choose and whether ive had fish and chips or steak and lobster , ive always been extremely happy. Good drinks menu, I had a grapefruit mojito... More
