Clients Party

We make our way for our clients party to the basement in the Grinch every year. The staff are always welcoming and work hard to keep up with serving drinks. The buffet food has always been very good and the atmosphere is always good. Never eaten upstairs in the main restaurant.

Here is another place that has been good and average over the years, seems to depend purely on the quality of staff. I've had some great lunches here and it used to be priced well. Last visit was average food, slow service and average drinks.

We visited on Saturday for lunch whilst shopping & out in Manchester for the weekend. I had the campfire beef which was served with sweet potato, guacamole & sour cream which was fantastic & my other half had the duck hash which was phenomenal, including the deep fried hard boiled egg! For desert we shared the snickers mess- this was... More

We have used the Grinch for the last four years as our base for our six monthly get togethers. There is always at least thirty of us, we have drinks, main course, dessert and tea/coffees. Michael, the waiter, looks after us extremely well and usually singlehandedly. The food is always good, and what we had today was absolutely first class,... More

The Grinch staff looked after us from start to finish. From booking to the night itself. They catered for all 30 of us on a staff night out and the food, service, drinks were all really nice. Thank you The Grinch.

We visited Grinch after passing a sign which said happy hour £5 Cocktails, £7 pizzas. From entering the staff were very attentive. However we ordered water and it tasted like it was from the drain. Also I understand the place was very quiet but many of the staff were sat on a table near to us. I get the laid... More

I had a work's night out on Frida here.. The service was good, we didn't wait too long for the food and the portions were good. Second time I have been here and both time I have enjoyed the food.

Stumbled across this today and what a great surprise. A small but great place to enjoy an evening meal. The food is great, full of flavour and always something different to get your tastebuds racing. I'll be popping back here soon. Try the lamb meatball pizza or the spicy chicken sandwich - they're amazing!

Great Fizz Friday offer! Went with some friends for food and drink after work and had a brilliant time. Quick service, good food and cold prosecco - what more could you want!?
