What a great afternoon at the Albatross & Arnold - Had a fantastic 2 course lunch at very reasonable prices - cauliflower starter was great, presented well and tasted so good. I then had Lamb and my colleague had plaice - both highly recommended.
The talented Chef, John, came out to talk to us & gave us a tour of the driving range facilities.
In fact, all the staff were attentive & helpful. Definitely going back!

Our first visit to this restaurant and from the start we were impressed by the ambience and decor of the place. The welcome was friendly and professional. It is nice to see short menus nowadays - it gives confidence that dishes are freshly prepared and from the day's produce. The auspices were good. We had the chicken liver parfait, which was great tasting with an unusual presentation - the sourdough toast was also excellent. The potato skin filled with variations on cauliflower was also tasty and different. Mains of super tender tasty braised lamb shoulder with variations on broccoli and crispy lamb breast was amazing as was a fulsome plate of roast jersey royals to share. Desserts of amazing British cheeses all washed down with classic NZ sauvignon blanc. Delightful service and an opportunity to meet the hardworking chef! Great addition to the Manchester dining scene.

We had some delicious lamb shoulder and chocolate fondant for dinner. Our waitress, Charlie was delightful and kept us entertained with her good humour and stories. Our table near the window had a good view so we enjoyed people watching whilst eating a relaxing dinner. Thanks for the good time!

Enjoyed a lovely evening meal comprising king crab, shoulder of lamb, and chocolate fondant. Very pleasant venue with welcoming and attentive staff.

Finished our evening with a few holes on the adjoining golf simulator 'The Range' which was extremely enjoyable.

Thought we would try this place as it's rise on TA has been nothing more than amazing. The restaurant is situated in the lower part of Spinningfields which is the current in-place of Manchester. On entering the restaurant we were met by a very enthusiastic and friendly Andy, he is the creator of this place and boy does it show, attentive and helpful what more could you ask. The place is not mauve, butter better still it ain't crammed - spacious and secluded the setting is made for a wonderful evening. The first waitress we met was called Magda - just so enthusiastic absolutely Fabulous ! The second and just as friendly and energetic to the restaurant - Charlie ! You can ask for nothing more , it's just perfect - but then add the manic that Jonathan Green produces with a few pans and a stove ! It's absolutely special. This place is heading only in one direction and that is to the top! The cauliflower starter is just wow and the Lamb main is double wow! The Menu is really small in size but it compensates with flavour ! We will be back on our next visit - this is my third favourite restaurant ever! Well done Andy, your onto something big here mate. Result :- OUTSTANDING
