This place has gone down hill! After eating here I felt hugely ripped off, I'm happy to pay well for good food, but this is definitely not what we received. How can you justify the prices you charge for a steak if the chef can't even cook it correctly?

After a meeting in Manchester, we wandered into the Corn Exchange area to hunt out a restaurant for early supper (18.30pm). We saw RB&G had a terrace with patio heaters and about quarter full, so we decided to give it a try. The terrace has a glass screen, ample patio heaters, full length awnings so even at early evening in... More

We booked a table 8.30 for eight people as part of a birthday celebration. We had to wait 30 minutes for our table downstairs and were then seated upstairs. Our starters were prompt but main course arrived about 10.40, after I had to ask where it was! The waiter, who was polite and embarrassed, explained the delay as being busy... More

My friends & I went to The Restaurant Bar & Grill for a few cocktails, during a Saturday night out in Manchester. We went on the terrace, which was quite warm, since it was a cold evening. The staff was friendly, helpful & offered a good service. The cocktails menu offered a good selection, and was made to perfection. The... More

Spent a relaxing evening here last week, you can't really fault it for food and value in the city centre, they use decent gear and you don't feel like ordering wine or champers will cripple you and send you to the poorhouse by the time the bill comes. The staff are A1, it's their game and they know it, so... More

Went on a Friday night, bar downstairs very quiet and no atmosphere however upstairs is like a different place. Food was okay had to send back the fish and chips as very over cooked. Loved the outside bar and on the whole not bad value.
