Visited 24 June for lunch, party of three. Seated on outside terrace with low table which had sofas not chairs, bit too low to be honest. Service swift and pretty good, only slight concern was when I ordered haddock risotto for main and was told they didn't do that dish. I then pointed it out on the menu - end... More

Enjoyed a friday night on the terrace with work colleagues. I still find this restaurant a great venue with a great buzz. I agree with others that it does need that facelift. For a friday night downstairs was very quiet and whilst the terrace was full the upstairs restaurant was 50% full. Still a great place to meet mates and... More

Came here with 14 others for a business lunch an found the service and the food to be excellent. I had grilled asparagus to start and flattened chicken for my main and I couldn't fault it. All of the group commented on how good it was and all plates cleaned off and that is a good sign! I have been... More

Visited on 21st June 2014 as part of my wife's birthday celebrations. On arrival table was slightly late being ready, but that was sorted with a drink at the bar. Very polite waiting staff sat us out on the terrace. We were in a party of 4, starters chosen were thai fish cakes and the potted beef and bacon. Both... More

Attending a conference in Manchester, I entertained some guest here and spent touching £700. The place was far from busy and yet we were put on a table which had the alcove at the end and extended from there. The net result was that we were actually lacking in space but with 14 of us could not easily move. No... More

Been here so many times, love this place. Terrace great sun spot with the lady. Roast was tasty as always but have to say I did feel sorry for the young guy running up and down the terrace for the two hours we was there. He was amazing and very interactive with all his ten tables YES we counted. Glad... More

This is a long standing member of the Manchester circuit, which I visited back in May, the first time for a couple of years. Upon arrival we were whisked upstairs, to be slightly disappointed to be sat inside rather than the outside terrace in the glorious Manchester sunshine. We all opted for the two course express lunch, surprisingly available on... More

We went as a group of six and we're seated in a nice booth opposite the door to the outdoor terrace. It became clear very soon after being seated that we would get a regular blast of cigarette smoke every time the door opened so not a great start. If you're visiting this venue then ask to be sat away... More
