“Lovely evening - great food and entertainment”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We had a lovely three course meal, enjoyed listening to the singer that was on and we entertained by a magician doing card tricks. The service and the food were really good. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

“Extra charges”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

I organised a cocktail making event for 15 people. At £20 each we were very happy with the afternoon. The cocktail waiter -Tom- was a star and made our afternoon a real treat. As a result we collected for him for a tip at the end before going to the restaurant for our pre booked meal. The meal wasn't great to be honest and was over priced for quality we received. What really upset us though was that , having paid up front for our cocktail experience, it then appeared on the restaurant bill again and was subject to a service charge of 10% ie another £30 when we had paid for it weeks in advance and given more than that in a direct tip. This is a warning for anyone else organising an event here. Watch for your service charges - they are out for every penny - and if you don't book a meal in the restaurant afterwards they can't apply them so go elsewhere then they can't shaft you !

“Fantastic....”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Visited The Living Room for lunch on bank holiday Friday. We ate/drank here around 5 years ago and it was good then and I am really pleased to say it has not lost it touch. The bar itself is real nice and overall it is a trendy place. The food was brilliant and although I loved my club sandwich my wife ordered the lamb skewers which were bloody awesome....The service is brilliant and our waiter Justin was fantastic in ensuring we got our food and drinks in a timely manner and we enjoyed the visit. We will be back the next time we are in Manchester for sure!

“A bit of a let down”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

We visited The Living Room recently and was somewhat disappointed TBH. Service was slow, to say the least, and my so called very well done steak was almost still alive. Won't be rushing back there for sure.
