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.

Everything was perfect!

Over time we've done a number of reviews and find it hard to award 5 stars, it's not hard in the case of this place. We had starters, mains, desert and cheese between us plus some fantastic wines and excellent coffees. Will definitely be back with more people.

We come as a family every so often to the rose garden and we have always had a fantastic meal. The wine selection is good and the ever changing menu means you get a variety of dishes some of which you may never have thought to try before! Definitely worth a visit.

Excellent food, very well presented and the taste combinations were superb. The cocktail menu was slightly limited, so we decided to move onto the wine menu instead, which had ample choice. The portion sizes are on the small side, but for a woman of average appetite I easily managed 3 courses with a cocktail and some wine. I wouldnt expect... More

Lovely meal and great service with a menu that really makes you think hard anti your order because there are so many nice things on it. Portions appear small at first but you feel satisfied by the time you finished rather than feeling stuffed. Highly recommended.

Ambience. Vibrant, full of light. A bit like the self taught, visionary chef. Rabbit and orange tagliatelle. An exquisite taste experience, reminds me of Umbria and wild boar. Lamb tagine. Fragrant, intense, complex, utterly delicious. Staff. Attentive, discreet, knowledgeable, perfect attributes. Verdict. Quite simply way ahead on the Manchester food scene. What an achievement.

We just felt overall that the food was not as amazing as it was on previous visits. I had the veggie option of the 'Full English' for my main. I assumed based on the cleverness of previous dishes I had eaten there, there would be a twist on it.. but it was (in total fairness to the restaurant)..just a vegetarian... More

Went this evening and felt compelled to write a review. The food was outstanding as were the drinks and service. We booked late but managed to get an early table for 7pm. I started with the Thai crab claws and was apparently the first customer to order them, a new addition to the menu, there are a few issues to... More

The Rose Garden is a wonderful little independent restaurant with some of the lovelies food in West Didsbury. We went a few weeks back and had such a good experience. The food is local, fresh and changes every few weeks so we were excited to try it. We were greeted by the staff at the door and shown to our... More

Visited the Rose Garden with some friends who live near by and we were blown away. It felt clean and modern inside, with a really relaxed atmosphere (partly helped by the laid back and very helpful staff!!) The wine that we were recommended went down very well and the meal itself was top quality. We all had starters and mains,... More
