Our first visit here, its reputation is as one of the top restaurants in Manchester, and we were not disappointed by the atmosphere, bar and food, which was excellent. A fantastic setting in the old Reform Club, a beautiful, historic building. The staff were lovely but service was slightly chaotic and I got the distinct impression there was no-one with... More

... due to its prices (as mains start at £18) which is a shame as I rate is as one of the best 2 or 3 restaurants in the whole area. The quality of the food was superb and service excellent. Great décor too with the massive lamps. Treat yourself to a cocktail on arrival. At the moment (Jan 2015)... More

'Room' is very funky in its decor. Bar is well-stocked (white whisky or saffron gin, anyone?) and the barman was a real pleasure - happy to experiment with new concoctions and throw them away if you weren't happy with the result. The food was really very good, even though we were choosing from the limited Festive Menu (3rd Jan). Service... More
