Whilst I love this bar and find the food is always excellent I do find the drinks hit and miss. We often sit choosing our cocktails from the list then going to bar to be told, we don't have the ingredients for half of the drinks (especially fruit). I wish I could say this was a one off but it's... More

Went with a large group for a Christmas meal, with food pre-ordered. The service was good and value for money was not too bad, but was not impressed with the food. One person had "pie of the day", which actually had no pie crust and appeared to be some kind of re-heated curry with potato on top. Some dishes were... More

Sorry you didnt enjoy your food.The pie was in fact a new idea which all others who had it, seemed to enjoy. Constructive criticism always welcome though. Feedback from your table was good, as far as we were aware on the night.Thanks again. More

I might be a bit Buyist on this one to be fair... The reason is that the staff is really really really nice and outgoing. I never had to ask for anything and I always get smiles and politeness and they are really outgoing. The food is just average tho, it use to be one of my favourite place to... More

Stumbled upon Taurus on our last visit to Manchester and gave it a 5 star review, so decided we would eat here again on our latest trip to the city. Friendly staff seated us quickly and we both ordered the pulled BBQ chicken with fries. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. Highly recommended.

Just walked by this place per accident and went in for a beer. After that I realised they serve food too. I had the deep-fried ravioli and the Tarus Lamb. Can't believe that Lamb was for just one person! Very generous plate of food, nice lamb with mashed potatoe, red wine gravy and rosemary. Very nice place to visit, getting... More

Never been before as the place looks a bit bland inside. However we had a lovely relaxed lunch, great beer, tasty food and friendly staff too. We'll definitely be going back.

Met some friends for tea after work and decided to try Taurus for some food after it was recommended to us. I didn't even realise they did food there until this point!
