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.

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

Despite having lived in West Didsbury for 6 years, we only visited the Rose Garden for the first time last Wednesday night. We immediately wished we'd ventured there sooner. The food was outstanding and far better than the punning menu might first lead you to think. The 'lambtastic' and the 'prawnography' starters were delightful (although the lamb kidney parcels were...

We have been to this restaurant twice and will go again. We were made to feel welcome and the choice of food and wine were just a little different from the normal fare. Excellent.

I have been to this beautiful restaurant in West Didsbury countless times since it opened and it remains one of my favourite restaurants in Manchester. The menu is always exciting and the food is never disappointing. I always feel extremely welcome and each visit is special and unique. A real gem in the crown of Manchester food.

The menu is a little esoteric and some might struggle to find something that they know in advance they will like, however, our choices brought delight with every course. The Mushroom crepe ( more like a Chinese dumpling really, was delicious. My Guinea Fowl was, for one who generally avoids dishes involving small birds, quite wonderful and my wife's Sea... More

Going for a surprise meal, I desperately wanted to enjoy this new venue. Sadly this was not the case. The menu was varied but due to my pregnancy and tastes, I was very limited as to what i could choose. I settled for mushroom crepe, which we named mushroom cr*p as it was a minute pancake sat in a mushroom... More

I came here with a friend after work. The staff were very friendly and happily accommodated our last minute change in reservation. Food was lush, although portions slightly small, but the taste certainly made up for this. A must for anyone visiting Didsbury.

Delicious and unusual food, lovely staff and a 10 min walk from my front door. We enjoyed all of our food with the lambtastic starter, guinea fowl main and banoffee started really standing out. The only reason this isn't a 5 star review is because 2 of the starters and 2 of the mains were finished by our reservation.

Really wanted to like this restaurant but didn't. This used to be voted number 1 restaurant on Tripadvisor and I can see why it isn't any more. When we dined, we were seated right next to the till. The tables a re squeezed in so we felt pretty cramped which doesnt make for a pleasant dining experience (the back of... More
