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.

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

Went to the Rose Garden last night for the first time with a friend and was not disappointed. The staff were extremely friendly and helped in the decision making when it came to the menu as every single item looked and sounded delicious. I had the Pork and Pineapple as a main which didn't require chewing, it just melted in... More

Went last year and had a lovely mid week dinner so I asked to return for my birthday. ( The restaurant were not aware it was my birthday). When we arrived we were seated upstairs. It was really cold and we were left without menus. I saw some friends 5 yards away sat at another table, so we got up... More

This was our second visit to the restaurant and I'm glad to say that this lovely spot hasn't allowed complacency to take hold as can often be the case with neighbourhood favourites. It looks as fresh as ever and in fact has even improved its service. The food too was delicious. I ordered the waiter's recommendation and was very pleased... More

This was truly a fine dining experience, a special night out spent with two friends from London who we wished to please. The Rose Garden certainly met all our expectations. The food and presentation was sublime, the service was first rate. We all enjoyed every morsel and moment - every detail had been considered and the food on the plate... More

I took a friend who knows her food as I had read good reviews - we were not dissapointed. We had the early bird menu which is excellent value for money. I would happily go back and pay a la carte prices. Dont be put off by the uncomfortable looking decor, the chairs are so comfy! We talked about the... More
