Had a breakfast here and it was cheap and enormous. But big and cheap usuall combine to make crap. The sausages were terrible, bacon, eggs fine but the beans and tomatoes were cold. Not surprised really as the bar girl was glued to Facebook even when taking my order. If you are taking my money I demand eye contact

We had breakfast here. The place was a bit odd. The bar staff was a bit strange too. I guess she was bored but it wasn't really service with a smile. She had her face planted in her phone the whole time we were there. The TV was on quite loud and the music was on too. When a song... More

i expected a real mancunian, hangover curing full breakfast, but what i got was a full plate of barely reheated slop. the egg floated in its own puddle of oil. served with an almost apologetic smile. my hangover was far from cured perhaps encourage a little. which is a shame because the hangover inducing night out in their downstairs club...

We have walked past this place many times as we often stay in the Ibis hotel but this time the smell of cooking breakfasts enticed us in! The food was cheap, £3.75 for a full english but great quality. Will be going here again and again!!

I was staying at the Weston Hall, across the road from Retro Bar, and I found that they open for breakfast from 0900. They offer a good value (£3.75) full English Breakfast, or just a Sausage or Egg Barm (that's a roll) for just a £1. Whilst it is obviously a student bar - a bit threadbare around the edges....
