I've eaten at Jack Spratt a few times now and every time I do, I am surprised by how good it is. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is also brilliant. The staff, for the most part, are very welcoming and helpful, and the food comes promptly. There was one occasion where service was rather sluggish, but the food... More

Went there as a group of 3 for the two courses for £13 which was a great deal. The choice wasn't massive but the dishes I enjoyed were quite inventive. The duck confit hash with poached egg was wonderful, perfect consistency of the egg and the duck was nice and moist perfectly complimented by the pomegranate salad. My cod main... More

First off, it is ever so sad that this place has now closed as it was without a doubt the best restaurant in Manchester, but the brothers wanted to be nearer their families and stay closer to home so that is fair enough. And they are keeping all of the staff and chefs on so that is also positive as... More

Went for evening meal once and very good it was too. However it seems (via Manchester Confidential) that 'the brothers who run it are taking a wander up to North Yorkshire and opening restaurants in Wetherby, Northallerton and Middlesborough'. Shame I never got the chance to re-visit.

Pre-theatre meal here was excellent again. Burger to die for and a well received cod loin. Fish cake and chicken/mushroom/Parma ham starters very tasty. Cocktail was well received too.

Picked the restaurant from the internet. Splendid choice. Lovely lovely food, unusual menu, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Really scrummy burger and a cheesecake to die for. Live music rounded of the experience beautifully.
