Simply stunning food. Fantastic service and a great atmosphere. The menu is a rich mixture of traditional British with some flair. Enjoyed every mouthful.

We have eaten here many times and have always had good food. We ate at this restaurant last night and had a very nice meal. The duck salad was lovely, as was the fish curry!

We had not been to this restaurant before but had seen the positive reviews. It exceeded our expectations- friendly staff - particularly the enchanting waiter from Minorca.. and there were some great touches such as the petit fours served with coffee - the Turkish delight was mouth-watering. Clearly a talented Chef at work here.

I haven't been in the 39 Steps for quite a few years and it was nice to revisit it last Sunday and try it for lunch which turned out to be pretty good in terms of the service from the very friendly staff, the food and the setting. We had a good time and I'd happily return and try it... More

Were here midweek evening with our two 22 year old grandchildren. Suited both generations. Lovely food. Great service. Tables beautifully laid with crisp white linen tablecloths. Nice extra touches, amuse-bouches and petit fours. Coffee included in midweek price. Very good value for this kind of setting.

We have dined at 39 Steps many times and always been impressed with the food and service: however we were disappointed with both on Friday 24th July. We selected courses from the A La Carte Menu. The starters of Beef Carpaccio and Serrano Ham were dull: presentation and flavours. The main course of Rack of Lamb was tough and more... More

We regularly fly from Manchester airport & stay at an airport hotel the evening before. This restaurant is convenient, just a short drive away. The restaurant has a friendly ambience and the service was very good. The food was also of a high standard. The only complaint came from my husband who had the venison and he said it was... More
