An eclectic mix of antique and retro makes this a stunning place to enjoy a private dining experience and we also offer cocktails until late.Our award winning restaurant can cater for up to 120 diners, whilst our bar can cater for up to 80. Room is absolutely perfect for a business lunch, a shopper's retreat or simply somewhere to drop in for a coffee. By night, the restaurant comes alive with the kind of brasserie atmosphere that you would expect within any cosmopolitan city and Room in Manchester is no exception.

Excellent modern themed cocktails such as the Jammy Dodger - with real mini biscuits included! Food menu was varied but not too many choices - just right. Service was absolutely brilliant. Good value as well. Only slight downside was the music in the bar area, not really needed!

Food was cold. Service was average. This was certainly not worth the price. The building is great though.

This is a lovely restaurant. I took my girlfriend here on our first date and she loved it. Service was very fast and the food was absolutely amazing. The menu is different from your normal restaurant. But diffidently worth trying. I have been many of time.

I was looking for somewhere convenient to where my daughter worked to meet up for lunch, her Godmother was on a visit to Manchester. Geographically this fitted the bill, and reviews looked good. What a surprise when we got there! The restaurant is situated in what was the Reform Club in Manchester (Liberals), and the actual restaurant is in what... More

Love this restaurant . Modern but classic at the same time, has kept the interior of the previous building and looks fantastic. Cocktails were amazing and very well prepare and food was delicious! Service from staff was first class, didn't wait too long in between courses, no trouble at all. Will definitely be coming back here!

Stunning place. Perfect service. Good selection of wine. Very nice fusion food. A bit overpriced regarding the "main" dishes, unless you go for sides.

I have been here before but assume there have been changes in some areas. The place looked fresher and sumptuous, and the staff were brilliant. The food is much improved from good to great and the cocktails sublime. Outstanding.
