Went to Room in Manchester last week with my wife as part of a romantic break away after a good friend recommended the restaurant. Enjoyed superb food followed by equally as good (if not slightly better) cocktails. Have previously visited Cloud 23 at the Hilton on Deansgate for cocktails but after visiting Room, can't imagine going anywhere else in Manchester... More

Really enjoyed this visit . Staff couldn't do enough and had great product knowledge. The food was to die for, and wonderfully presented. Looking forward to returning.

We had a lovely evening at Room. The food was delectable and particularly enjoyed the curry mile. The surroundings and atmosphere are wonderful, as are the unusual and superb cocktails. Loved it!

Booked the early bird menu and was not disappointed! for £16 you get 3 courses - I had a delicious ham hock terrine with piccalilli followed by beautifully cooked belly pork and black pudding mash. Seriously top notch cooking for the price! Then the desert - limoncello cream, basil sauce, shortbread and meringue... really good. Felt comfortably full as well... More

Went out with a group of six friends for a nice dinner and was warmly welcomed by the restaurant staff and shown to our table. The decor inside is fantastic and there was a brilliant atmosphere. After a few cocktails the food arrived and it was simply DISAPPOINTING. The lamb burger looked like it had just come out of a... More

Having been to this restaurant two years ago, we were really looking forward to a return visit. However we had very average food that was overpriced and very small portions. The waitress was new and she was pleasant enough but hadn't been trained very well and had to keep leaving the table to ask questions and then forgot to take... More
