Great service, food and atmosphere.

Been to the grinch a few times, always leave happy. Visited the grinch on Saturday with a party of 12, service was friendly and attentive (but not too attentive which can be annoying) great value for money, lovely food and nice drinks. We all had a fab time.

Booked after reading Tripadvisor reviews! The food was good and the atmosphere was perfect for our family night out. The menu wasn't huge, but had a good selection of food. We had steak & frites and pizzas which were all good. If your looking for some pre - theatre food, this would be a good choice. My only small criticism... More

The places I go back to tend be the ones where I enjoy the ambience and service as much if not more than the food. The food at Grinch is very bistro and always good. Especially the pizzas. The buzz and service is very friendly and i just relax and chat with my guests without caring about anything.

Very warm welcome by some great staff, the menu isn't that big but the food was lovely and the portion sizes sat just right. We went on a Friday and they had an offer on for a bottle of prosecco for £15 which is very reasonable for a restaurant in the centre of manchester. We even left with a 10%... More

When we visit Manchester we stop here for a drink and a light snack. It has a nice atmosphere and a good menu with plenty of food and drink to choose. The cocktails are particularly good and competitively priced. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Good location just off Deansgate, worth a visit, friendly atmosphere and an obvious meeting place for friends. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Ideal for a shopping day meal and relax.

Me and my wife visited here recently during a trip to the christmas markets and we were pleasantly surprised to find this lovely restaurant to be a peaceful retreat away from the bustle of the city centre. We ordered the burgers which were really tasty and we will be bringing our grandkids here for sure when we next visit manchester.... More

The meat options were great but my husbands veg burger was not nice. There was also a mix up and the starters did not arrive. We were also rushed from our table. Not bad but not relaxing.
