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.

We ate here for my birthday and unfortunately I think we caught some (not all) of the waiting staff on a bad day. A few mishaps that singularly are no problem but when you put them all together makes for an unpleasant evening e.g waiting 5 minutes to be seated without an acknowledgement, waiting 10 minutes to even receive a...

Used trip advisor to find somewhere nice to eat when we were in Manchester and found the Rose Garden. It was excellent. Probably the best meal I've ever had and it wasn't too pricey either. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

This restaurant never fails when we are looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion. The food is always exciting, different and cooked to perfection. The staff are wonderful and the wine list is of excellent quality. The only slight criticism would be the rather 'ice-cream parlour' decor which doesn't lend itself to the possibility of a cosy or romantic... More

I could not have been more impressed by The Rose Garden. My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and we ate from the - 'set menu'; which really isn't that set and holds a wide variety of choices. Each part of the meal (including the wine) was exquisite. Every dish cooked and designed to the most incredible standards. The... More

Second visit to this restaurant. Again, it did not disappoint. The food is delicious and the service is excellent - not over intrusive but there when you want it. Reasonably priced for the quality especially before 7 p.m. For special occasions where you don't want to go into the city centre, this is the place to go. Easy to find... More

I'm going to keep it simple. The food is fantastic, among the best I've ever eaten in any restaurant. The menu presents elegant sounding dishes and what we received lived up to my expectations. The service was informal and very good. The restaurant itself is small yet comfortable (unless you sit by the door I wager) and the decor is... More

Didsbury, south Manchester, has a number of good locally run places to eat in. The Rose Garden,in Burton Road, is the best by far. If you want hearty helpings, don't go. The food here is refined, imaginative and attractively plated. Try the risotto in all its many guises: delicious, dressed with delicate herbs. The early evening meal is a steal... More

Visited for my girlfriends birthday, and it's a great place for special occasions. The food and wine were superb, and the service was great too!

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Rose Garden on Saturday evening; it was a great choice. The menu is short but enticing, and (most importantly) my wife, as a veggie isn't made to feel like a second-class citizen; the veggie options are imaginative and considered. The service was relaxed and informal but attentive, and every plate... More
