Great food, shame about the service.

The food was great, me and three friends came for a Sunday roast which we loved. I come here often with family and was very surprised at how poor the service was. I had to ask for water four times when getting two bottles. Extra gravy never made it to our table and the bill had to be asked for... read more

The only let down was when I booked and told them if was for my birthday, the lady informed me that they would have some lovely birthday treats ready for me.... More

We have been customers of the RBG for some years as have our friends. In fact our friends are Black loyalty card holders such is their custom. But they have never been for Sunday lunch. So we all went, had a great Sunday roast sat on the terrace, went through 4 bottles of wine and had a great time.

Love it here and am a regular. However Saturday night we booked a table for drinks for a very special family birthday. Our waitress spoilt the experience, she was slow, miserable and unhelpful, we felt everything was too much trouble for her. Such a shame because front of house and restaurant staff are so friendly. My family members will not... More

I can't speak highly enough of Restaurant Bar and Grill. Exquisite fresh food, stunning service from beginning to end and an abundance of happy, friendly and professional staff to welcome us and see to our every need. Events staff were also brilliant to deal with and We will be paying regular visits back to the restaurant.

We were attending a concert with some friends in Manchester and decided to arrive early and find somewhere to have dinner first. The interior of this restaurant appealed to us as did the menu and we decided to give it a try. The interior is very contemporary, all black and white and chrome. The restaurant is on the first floor... More
