“Excellent meal, great decor.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Went to Damson for the first time last night with friends who have been a number of times and recommended it. We booked for Saturday night on the Thursday which meant it was heavily booked and we could only get a table for 6.15 pm which was very early, however, on the positive side we got the early bird menu which was extremely good value.. Two of us had the guinea fowl, which was really tasty and two had the duck which they said was excellent. The chocolate tart was wonderful. Wine was reasonably priced for a restaurant. The atmosphere is really nice and it is possible to have and hear a conversation (not always true of some of the other good restaurants in south Manchester). The seats are very comfortable, which is important. Overall an excellent meal in fantastic surroundings with helpful friendly staff (even after one of our party knocked over and broke a wine glass!). Thoroughly recommended but booking well in advance is advisable.

“Great for special treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

I have been to damson twice and have had great experiences both times. Although it is a little expensive, you get what you pay for and it is a great place for a special treat. The food is lovely, the service is attentive but not overbearing and there is a good selection of wine. One of the best independents around.

“Thoroughly enjoyed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Fantastic evening
Away for the weekend with my husband & this restaurant was tip top in every way.......service, atmosphere, food, drink, decor etc etc....it's got the lot.
I was really impressed by the way the fish dish (I had spent a long time choosing) had run out, but instead of just taking it off the menu (like most restaurants do, which then leads to disappointment) they replaced with another variety.
Thank you Damson for a most enjoyable evening

“Very very nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Went recently with some girlfriends. Overall opinion was that the food was excellent. We ordered from the set menu, the choice is very limited which can sometimes be a good thing, and in this case it was. We all chose different dishes, there were no complaints at all. All three courses were exceptional! The staff are polite and tentative.
