Hard to describe how nice this place is... Food was lovely, the steak was particularly good. Staff were great, very attentive. Good selection of wines. Good gluten free choices. Really cheap if you stick to the set menu, which covers about 70% of the dishes. 100% will visit again.

Really enjoyed the experience of eating at this small restaurant in Didsbury. Understated decor, friendly, efficient staff and above all, really excellent seasonal food from a menu that changes bi-monthly. I swear the sea bass dish was Michelin star worthy! Highly recommended and good value. House wine by the carafe too. Go there.

This was my first time to visit this restaurant and I was very impressed. The food was very good quality and the staff were friendly. I would not have the cod and potato dish again because the overall combination was disappointing. Although each individual element of the dish was of good quality and perfectly cooked, they did not marry well... More

It has been a few years since we last visited, but the food was excellent. The portions are not huge but at the end of 3 courses we were pleasantly full. Venison starter was delicious, as were our sea bass and cod mains. Taste wise, this place is a notch above most restaurants in Manchester and it does feel like... More

We ate off the set menu which was available until 7.00pm and really good value, 3 courses for £21.00. The food was imaginative, really well presented and very good. I don't often eat everything put in front of me but this was the exception. Will certainly be returning.

The Rose Garden has been proving great food ever since it opened and service and reasonable value have been assures. It has been a flame carrier for quality in the area. No question about the quality being maintained across the menu. The lobster, Camembert/ walnut and chicken liver starters were wonderful. All enjoyed mains of lamb, cod wrapped in ham... More

I write this review having been to the Rose Garden many times now. The set menu is a standard treat, and the place has become one of our "places to celebrate". My most recent visit was last month. I had a lovely pork belly and squid starter, a lamb main and a take on cream tea for dessert. Rose garden... More

Utterly love this place. Never fails - and the best bit is the puddings - small but perfectly formed and not over sweet. The rhubarb ones are especially good - almost lick-the-plate standard, if I wasn't well brought up :) Go for the early doors supper early in the week - you won't be disappointed!

Description
New to West Didsbury’s Burton Road, The Rose Garden serves exciting contemporary British food created by owner and head Chef William Mills. It’s very much a family affair — William’s elder Brother Tom constructed the interior to a design created by their architect father, the restaurant’s striking visual appeal is complemented by professional but informal table service from William’s younger siblings.
