Description: Beef & Pudding is not just be about great food but also unique fine ales, fantastic wines and a bespoke list of fabulous cocktails. A full interior refurbishment and the installation of a state-of-the-art kitchen sees a considerable investment on a tired city centre venue. Beef and Pudding is inspired by the location, close to St Peter's Square, the title of the restaurant is a reference to a famed caricature of the Peterloo Massacre by George Cruikshank, where a soldier says: "Give them no quarter, they want to take our beef and pudding from us."

“Good Honest food !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Lovely little place in the center of Manchester.

3 Potato skins for starters with two dips, were very nice. My friend ordered Ribs.. which were huge. Both well presented by friendly staff.

For mains, the Chicken on a bed of mustard mash, was superbly cooked. A decent portion. None of this arty stuff. My friend had the fish and chips, and the fish again, was well cooked, well presented, and of decent size.

No room left for pudding unfortunately, ironically.

Looking forward to going back.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Went with a couple of friends for dinner. Service was great, the waitress explaining what was on offer. Friendly but not overbearing and once we started eating we were left alone, not like in some restaurants where the waiter keep insisting on pouring more wine.
The food was fabulous with a great choice. Would definitely recommend and will be going myself again soon. One small gripe...it is really dark at the back of the restaurant and could have done with a few more wattages. This is me though so others would not have an issue.

“Loved it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Love the concept of this place, good food in great surroundings!
Visited with our 2 year old and the staff were great they were very attentive throughout our visit but not intrusive. My husband had the Beef'ham tower burger and it looked amazing....not for the feint hearted though as its huge. I opted for the fajitas off the specials, and they were delish. We will return.

“Lovely food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

We booked a meal here for 11 of us for bank holiday Sunday.

The table was ready and waiting when we arrived. The menu was a set two or three course sunday lunch menu however people around us at other tables had a different menu. When we asked why the manager said as we were a big party they only tend to give out a set menu. This did annoy a few people in the party as we had all been looking at the big menu online and had not been advised of this on booking.

The manager was reasonable and offered the bigger menu. After all the fuss the majority of our party wanted food from the smaller set menu anyway! It was £12.95 for two courses or £14.95 for three courses. I don't think this applies to the bigger menu.

Most of us had the standard beef or chicken sunday lunch. The food was lovely and we were all surprised how much meat you got on your plate. All of us said you couldn't fault the meal at all. To start with most of us had the Asparagus soup which was really tasty.

None of us had a dessert as we were too full! Overall the service was great and the staff were very friendly.

For a new restaurant which isn't on people's radar yet, the place was completely booked out. The décor has a sort of Artisan feel to it as well and is really nice.

I will definitely be returning and telling others to do the same!

“Great Beef and Pudding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

We had a great dining experience, the food was excellent and Stefan our waiter delivered outstanding service. We had the Manc plank sharer for starter which had a selection of miniature delights on it. My partner had the rump steak with bourbon dust rub, which was cooked to perfection and the flavour was beautiful. I had the small carbonara which was just the right size and tasted lovely. We shared a black cherry Bakewell tart for dessert and it was delicious and even though I was so full enjoyed every mouthful. This was a great find.
