First let me say that the prices on the website are incorrect/out of date and the children's price is no longer for children under 11, it is for children under 120 cm - I have never heard of children being penalised in a restaurant for...More

We visit every time we go to the Lowry. A great buffet lunch which has the best variety of starters. Lots of crispy duck, very tasty salt and pepper wings and ribs to die for. All kept hot, but not over loaded so that it...More
