Myself and about 36 other people visited for a pre booked 30th birthday celebration. After a champagne reception downstairs we were shown to our tables. We were all having the party menu, only 3 dishes to choose from on each course but well balanced. Wine was served frequently and the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc was fabulous. I opted for the...

We booked a table for 8pm on a Saturday night. We got a fantastic table next to the floor to ceiling window at the front of the restaurant. Drinks took a little while to come but we didn't mind as they brought us some complimentary bread in the meantime. Our waiter could not have been more lovely, asking if we... More

Limited menu with slow & not very friendly service. Food was no anything like I... More

Brilliant Restaurant, excellent service, our waiter knew everything there was to know about all the dishes on the menu, fillet steak cooked to perfection. Only one let down, I did not like the chips, Rustic and cooked from frozen, would have been 100% if the chips would have been cooked fresh from real potatoes,

We have dined at the bar and grill numerous times over the years and are generally impressed. Yes the prices are a bit steep but the food and service has always been great. We went on the Tuesday before Christmas for early dinner on the terrace. The staff are as friendly and helpful as ever but we were disappointed by... More

This meal was memorable for eating outside in Manchester whilst the weather was dreadful and the canopy started to leak. The table behind us got wet. We didn't - fortunately. The food was ok - the scallops were fine but the Risotto bland and clumpy. The wine was better than average. The company was good and the restaurant efficient -... More

Had our works Christmas lunch here, all pre-ordered beforehand and served to perfection. Parsnip and chestnut soup was delicious, plenty of turkey although the slices were a bit thick, would have been better thinly sliced but that's personal preference, very tasty gravy and hot vegetables. Christmas pudding was lovely although I gather the chocolate fondant was a firm favourite. The... More

Even on the run up to Christmas the quality and delivery of the food was excellent. The tempura prawns were cooked perfectly and the steak, medium rare, was flavoursome and tender. The recommended Malbec, although not cheap at £38, was at the perfect temperature and was plummy and delicious. A long, leisurely lunch was finished off with some wonderfully ripe... More

Went as part of a group booking of 40 people, pre-booked and a limited menu. Three weeks before Christmas so the place was busy however the welcome staff seemed to have forgotten that we had an area of the bar reserved for our use and tried to send us up to the "private room". After sorted this and had a... More
