We had a table reservation on a seriously hot day. There is no air conditioning or fans and we were drenched. The food was over cooked. The waiter tried hard against all the odds. No wonder there were only three other tables with customers.

Famous for its fresh and simple seafood, Livebait hooks Manchester diners with its cheerfully inviting approach to dining. Old favourites such as cod and chips and Dorset crab are crowd-pleasers, but the menu also features more unusual options, such as the fragrant fish & shellfish curry and the sustainably caught wild striped sea bass. The black and white tiled restaurant interior matches the straightforward attitude of the kitchen, while lighter bites are available all day in the bar area.
