I recently went to Room in Manchester with my family (6 of us total) and the whole experience was amazing! Having been previously for Valentines day last year, the venue was still just as stunning, the dining room reminds me of an old hall, but there is plenty of room, unlike a lot of places where they cram tables in...

Booked here for a 21st birthday. They knew this was a special event when we booked. Regretfully whilst the food was terrific (which I already knew from 2 previous visits) when they took our booking they said we could not have anything later then when we turned up we were in a huge empty restaurant sat right next to the...

Between making our booking and the actual reservation reviews on trip advisor were making me decidedly nervous about dining here. We arrived on a very busy pre christmas Friday to be told the ala carte menu wasn't available and we had to choose from the Christmas menu. For £33 per person for 3 courses, it sounded a very good deal.... More

The menu was limited and was not the same one as displayed on the website. It was also not explain via the confirmation email received. The starters... More

The restaurant was interesting and very quirky, lots of history and great atmosphere. The food is exciting and will provide surprises with every dish. Not cheap, but good quality and great overall experience.

My husband and i have previously eaten at Room and had an amazing experience, but not this time. We waited a long time to be seated at our table, also ordering our food took forever, as did each course. There were a lot of large groups as it was the christmas party season and the staff were more attentive to... More

The food was sublime and although there was a mistake with my meal it was dealt with swiftly and professionally. The cocktails were really well balanced. We will definitely visit here again.

Over a two month period I have enjoyed the excellent set lunch at Room,Manchester several times and decided to visit with my Wife and her female friend for the Christmas lunch today.

This bar was recommended by a friend. I chose a champagne cocktail which I really enjoyed. I have not commented about the food as I did not order any. This bar will no doubt feature in my regular trips to manchester in the future.
