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.

I have eaten here twice now and I haven't been disappointed on either occasion. The menu is quite small which says a lot to me - I hate not being able to choose because menu's are massive- they also rotate it seasonally and update it regularly.

We went to the Rose Garden last night with another couple. The service was very good, the waitress was very attentive and the food was nice but it was cold, the portion size was very small and price really high for what you got. We won't be returning again as there are many other restaurants nearby that have great food... More

The food quality of this place is exceptional. It's one of the best places in southern manchester for sure. They do a good menu mid week where you can get 2 or 3 courses for under £20 but the a la carte menu is better. The staff also have great win pairing recommendations.

We came here on Christmas eve after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were delighted with the food. We opted for a ste menu, the portions medium sized but presented perfectly and the taste was excelent. The decor id minimilistic - clean lines, perhaps a tad bright for me but heh we were here to eat. The food... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the Rose Garden, the interior is minimal & trendy but still cosy & the restaurant overlooks an attractive street chock full of other bustling eateries. The menu is a bit quirky with a short but interesting choice. The set menu isn't offered on a weekend which was when we visited. Our meals were by & large, fantastic, really... More

The food did have potential to be really nice however the portions were so small, the scallop starter only had one scallop! the venison main course had 3 small bite size pieces of venison, my friend did complain and was brought a further 2 pieces, this still didn't exactly make a portion, the rib eye steak was really small, half...

We enjoyed our food here, but, although it was before 8pm several dishes were unavailable. We were hoping to eat from the set menu but were pushed onto the A la carte menu. Several dishes were on both menus so the choice was very limited. I did feel if one dish sold out there should be alternatives available. The staff... More

Just back from a late lunch/early dinner at the Rose Garden to celebrate the 20th birthday of one of my daughters. This restaurant is a favourite of hers but it was my first time. This review is going to sound like it was commissioned by the venue because there will be nothing negative in it. We were a party of... More

As the title says, this is probably the best food you can get in West Didsbuy. The menu seems to change on a regular basis, although we're still waiting for the 'three pepper steak' to make a return - please make it happen chef!
