We spent a few days for our wedding down the road at Velvet and I have never had an afternoon tea so convinced my new husband to have one ;) It was a great value for what we got and it was all very lovely. Scones were great with the jam and clotted cream. Sandwiches were all lovely. We had... More

Book a table for two with the 2 courses for £16 deal. The food was excellent! More importantly, all the staffs are very kind. Although there is a bit of waiting time at the beginning, it is still acceptable. It was a birthday dinner, and we received a little desert treat, which really surprised us! :) We had a wonderful...

Booked the 2 dine for 50 pounds at weekend and was booked in to eat at 8.30. On arrival was surprised to find just 1 other party in the restaurant. Very quiet and no atmosphere. However the food and wine were good and the deal is really good value. The service was good if a little slow considering there were... More

Took the two dine for £50 deal at the restaurant at the weekend - do not hesitate, the food was amazing and the service was faultless.

Went for afternoon tea recently. The restaurant was quiet with only three or four more tables occupied. The waitress was polite and friendly and also checked whether there was anything we couldn't or wouldn't eat. We can't complain about the food at all...more than enough for us. The only down side was that the restaurant lacked atmosphere. Not sure if... More

Brilliant food in a classy dining room. Attention to detail and great service from the staff. Don't understand why it's never busier! We preferred it to Michael Caines which we visited the week before. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed. I promise!

I ate at the Doubletree twice over the Bank Holiday weekend, because having Manchester Pride wristbands on, our food was half price. And I'm thankful that it was. On our first visit (Friday 23rdAug) the service was just poor. We waited far too long to be served in a restaurant which really was not that busy. Wanting to give it... More

My partner and I were staying in the hotel so decided to eat here one night, tempted in by the offer of two courses and a glass of wine for £15.95. Wasn't quite sure what to expect as this is also the same room where the hotel breakfast is served in the mornings. We hadn't booked but were seated straight... More

Having booked a table for 2 on open table for the 3 course menu with 1/2 bottle of wine I was looking forward to dining here. Having dined here many times previously when it was City Inn and Mint Hotel the food and service has always been excellent. I arrived at the restaurant and they could not find my booking.... More

After looking at prior reviews I come across a 'hit and miss' attitude, which I believe to be correct. I can't rate the service as it was non existent. I sat down outside on the terrace, I then asked for the drinks menu. I waited over 15 minutes to be served, there was no one inside and only a few... More
