Favourite restaurant in Manchester! Faultless! visited on numerous occasions and cannot say one bad word. Food is always hot and full of flavour especially asparagus soup and peanut butter chicken skewers! Service is always efficient and friendly. Cocktails highly recommended! Strawberry daqauri is a must. Overall great value for either lunch or dinner.

This place serves amazing food to a high standard and at a reasonable price. All the staff are friendly and happy to help. You can dress up or dress casual and not feel out of place. Sunday dinner is really good!! Members discount of 20% is really good too!

This is still my favourite place to eat in Manchester. The food has always been delicious and service is impeccable. The cocktail and wine menu and guest ales are also an added bonus. I've taken friends and family several times and everyone has loved it here! Excellent value during the week with a blackhouse card giving up to 20% off... More
