Description: New to West Didsbury’s Burton Road, The Rose Garden serves exciting contemporary British food created by owner and head Chef William Mills. It’s very much a family affair — William’s elder Brother Tom constructed the interior to a design created by their architect father, the restaurant’s striking visual appeal is complemented by professional but informal table service from William’s younger siblings.

This was our first time visiting Rose Garden and I'm not one to usually post reviews but I couldn't resist. I have struggled to find food this perfectly cooked, tasty, well presented AND filling for quite a while. The staff were efficient and friendly and made us feel very welcome. I will not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to people... More

We have been to the Rose Garden before and found the food excellent. As per our last visit, the service could not be faulted, it was excellent. The food however, was a mixed bag. The pea soup and nicoise salad were excellent, my wife's main of a risotto and courgette flower was beautiful (I tried it also). In ordered the... More

After a wonderful first visit earlier in the year, myself and my partner were excited to return again this evening. I want to start by saying we cannot fault the atmosphere and service at the rose garden, however the food tonight left a lot to be desired. The pea soup was fine, my partners tuna carpaccio starter was lacking depth... More

Just back from eating at the Rose Garden in Didsbury and although I've heard about before it's the first time I've been. It really is a smashing little place. Totally unpretentious in its approach which is refreshing and the waitress was very keen to explain it's a family run restaurant and they take great pride in making it a friendly... More

A stunning restaurant. A limited, yet lovely, menu. we ate from the set menu, which is perfect. Service is great and although it may be classed as a little pricey, it is worth it, if you fancy a little treat.

Had a lovely evening but was left slightly underwhelmed compared to the last few times. Had 'Summer BBQ' for starter, which on paper looked incredible but I think the chef tried to be a bit too clever with his flavours and not sure it worked. 'Three little pigs' for main course which was good but not outstanding. Hopefully it was... More

Have eaten here quite a few times and it never disappoints. The menu is small as are the portions but the food is simply to die for!! Would recommend to anyone who enjoys fine tasting food.

My husband, daughter and I went to the Rose Garden this week and weren't sure what to expect . What a surprise!! The food, service and atmosphere were fantastic. The swivel chairs were soo comfortable that I could have sat for much longer than the 2 hours we were there. We all had 3 courses- summer bbq was delicious as... More

Food was lovely, however the portions are a little on the small side so you need to order at least 2 courses. Not much for the decoration either its very clinical and lacks character. In addition the location of our table meant that I was wedged in the corner and had no room to move my chair. Glad i went... More
