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.

Fine dining experience

Intrigued by the menu and wasn't disappointed. Incredible and courageous flavours different from the standard fish and chips, burger or roast meat options you see at most other Didsbury establishments. It's not cheap but recommend for a special occasion.

We enjoyed dishes from both the set and a la carte menu as almost all the dishes appealed to our party of 4. The food, staff and ambience were all wonderful. You get the impression that whoever is in the kitchen really knows and cares about food, the flavours and presentation of every dish were wonderful. We particularly enjoyed the... More

Very impressed by this place. We had a 3 course meal with wine wasn't cheap but the quality of the food was 2nd to none. The service was great and the waitress let us sample a couple of wines before we settled on the bottle we ordered which was much appreciated. Next time I am up in Manchester will try... More

Just dropped in for a coffee and the atmosphere and staff were delightful. All the amazing food on display was made in house and looked delicious. Bought 2 rolls for picnic and they were enormous, fresh and full of meat and salad. A wonderful spot.

visited with my family on a Wednesday night. The starter of lamb kebabs was amazing! So tasty! The main courses were also delicious but the best part was the dessert. The carrot cake fondue is simply brilliant, the best dessert I have ever had! And that is a big statement from a dessert lover like me. Will recommend to friends... More

Decided to visit on a Monday to take advantage of their set menu offer and had a lovely experience. The restaurant itself is extremely elegant with clever lighting & subtle shots of bright colours against white walls. We had a new & nervous waitress but she did a great job. I had poached duck egg & asparagus, followed by pork... More

Walked along the road and looked at a host of restaurant and this one caught our eye the most from the interesting menu to the lovely looking interior of restaurant. The menu is varied and the set price menu is very reasonably priced. I had the lamb kebabs and my partner had the pesto risotto, both were cooked amazingly and... More
