Quite different!

Enjoyed really good food accompanied by attentive and warm service last night in the Vintage Kitchen : first time there. My starter was the hake wrapped in parma ham with fishcakes and a tasty sauce. I didn't want it to end! Main course the steak. Cooked just as I had requested and a big... read more

I went for a lunch with work colleagues, due to one of them leaving, to this restaurant and had heard a lot of good things. I have to say I wasn't disappointed. Theres a very cosy, busy atmosphere about this restaurant and the tables seemed to be constantly full. There is an unusual choice on the menu, with all starters... More

Went with a group of 10 friends and all of us agreed this was one of the best food experiences we had had. Excellent choice of starters and mains and all tasted amazing. Portions sizes were ample so too full to try the desserts which also looked great. Laid back friendly atmosphere, fantastic staff and bring your own wine or... More

All you need to know is everyone should go! Great - service, food, atmosphere and once you start to eat u won't want to leave. Very generous servings (which keep to detail 👍) so come hungry! A word of advice book well in advance to avoid disappointment. We had the early sitting and it was perfect!

It's BYOB with no corking fee. Great value. 2 course menu has huge portions(so arrive hungry). Everything is fresh. A bit too small but lovely place.

Warmest welcome. Food was divine. Staff attentive and friendly but not overwelming. Bring your own drink certainly a bonus. Wish we had a Vintage Kitchen in Manchester.

I rang the night before, and we got very lucky! I got a table for 4. The owner was very friendly, and we were welcomed like long lost friends (although we had never been before). The 2 course dinner was 28 euro, and it was fabulous!!!! I had the hake entrée, and the lamb shank, and both were superb. All... More

Have to say, was put off by the waiting list but now I know why there is such a wait. The place is very small and very intimate. I had the Mushroom crepe for starter and it was amazing. My partner had the Chowder and said he never wanted it to end that it was so amazing. I highly recommend... More
