This was a GREAT place to eat and drink, had many a fine night in there. Unfortunately due to nearby tram works wrecking the area, they closed on 4th June. Other restaurants have closed in the area too due inaccessability. Surely someone must be to blame? Grinch, you will be missed.

A busy Saturday night and they were able to fit us in which was a great start. The menu has burgers and pizzas that are really quirky and original and then they have some classics like a "posh" fried chicken that comes with a glass of prosecco on the side. I went for the Middle Eastern big platter that had... More

Visited this restaurant last saturday (5 apr) as a foursome on a visit to Manchester. Food was fine although a little pricey at 12-15 main meal and £6 for starter nacho's (which was basically dorito's with melted cheese!). I had chicken and fries which was quite basic, although the coleslaw topping was excellent! The downside was the waiter 'the bearded... More

If you go to Grinch, you have to have a 'Dirty burger'. Its a must! A char-grilled beef pattie with everything on it and the fries are to die for. Just don't think about your cholesterol levels and make sure you visit the gym everyday for a week afterwards. We've been going to this place for about 17/18 years (I... More

Even early evening the staff were on there toes. Advising what part of their menu was quickest not to miss the show. A relaxing atmosphere with great back ground music. Staff were attentive and professional through out our stay. Big heads up to Hew and his team

Seemed busy and noisy when we arrived so we were happy when we were seated straight away. Our waiter (I think Michael? That's what he said on the bill, he had a beard) was excellent, so attentive and lovely. We ordered nachos to share which came super fast and were lovely, would recommend. Two of us had the humous pizza... More

My son booked a table on Saturday evening for 5 people as a Mothers Day celebration . We arrived at 6pm and the place was already busy . It was refreshing to actually have a round table which seated us properly . Menus were on the table with offer of cocktails at £5 each . Not much of a choice... More
