We arrived for dinner at 7.30 on a Saturday evening, we were greeted at reception our arrival was announced and we were escorted to our table. Made to feel special right from the start, well done. We had an issue with the setting sun right into my eyes, they noticed this and moved us to another table immediately. The drinks... More

Food was lovely and sitting out on the terrace was the perfect place to go for after-work catch up with friends. However the waiter - based on his 'service' suggests he was either suffering after a big night out the night before or he GENUINELY hates his job. He looked scruffy, his hair greasy, he took away my food before... More

Just the place to meet up with old school friends and roll back the years! Excellent food and good service. Lovely venue outside on the long balcony. It was a really hot day but the shades were pulled across for us and it was very pleasant. Will be going there again when next visiting Manchester, I am sure!!

Always delivers, with a varied menu which changes periodically. Nice friendly atmosphere with staff that know what they are doing. Gets good local support, because it delivers professionally. Food always of a good standard and liked by all.

Sunday lunch at The Restaurant Bar & Grill recently. We were offered a table on the terrace if we wanted which we took up – very pleasant space, the seats seem a bit low at first but you get used to them and it’s very relaxing. The quality and presentation of the food was very good. Roast beef Sunday lunch... More

We want for birthday lunches from work and reserved a verandah table. Unfortunately the weather did not oblige, but never fear the awning and heaters meant we were warm and dry in no time. The steaks were cooked to perfection, tomato and pomegranate salad exquisite, and crab with avocado salad was amazing. Service was good and the waitress kept us... More

Lovely meal with family and friends. Great food, service and atmosphere. 2 comments. Moratti beer wasn't cold enough, and male toilet needs to be serviced more regularly as men's aim gets worse as the night gets later. Apart from that, thoroughly amazing night.

Love RBG ate here many times and never falters from the service to the food everything always excellent. This time we opted for the Lobster and fries with an Hollandaise sauce, lobster char grilled to perfection, great portion size my only issue today was the chef went way over the top on the olive oil and made tackling the lobster...

I have visited RBG a lot over the last few months. It's always very good and very consistent. However on a visit recently there was a couple of issues with our meals. I decided to message the restaurant via Facebook with some constructive criticism. I received a call from the manager, Nick. His customer service was fantastic, it was clear... More
