“High Tea”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Had a disappointing high tea with my wife here yesterday. Plus points, tea, sandwiches and scones were good. Cakes however were very poor. Seemed to be mini sponge cakes of the Mr Kipling or Iceland type, no variety. Had to get a clean tea cup too as the first one had lipstick marks.

Hi,
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am disappointed that you only awarded us 3/5.
I can 100% confirm that our cakes on our Afternoon Tea are not Mr Kipling or any other supermarket brand. They are actually made bespoke! I am sorry that they were not to your liking. We chose carefully what to put on the Afternoon Teas and we have a variety which are produced, including mini Chocolate Fudge cakes, mini Victoria Sponge cakes, mini Meringues, mini Fairy cakes, mini Carrot cakes and mini Coffee/Walnut cakes.
Thanks
Barry (Manager)

“Exquisite food”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We came across the current 3-courses for £25 offer that 47 are currently running and, having never eaten in this restaurant before, thought such a good deal was worth a punt, especially as the a la carte menu looked so good.
The menu could have been tailored especially for us, offering delicious meat and fish dishes, showcasing classic and yet inspired techniques and accompaniments in an unpretentious manner. Every meal we ordered was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. We now understand why they claim their Eton mess as being famous!
Not only this, the service was very friendly and efficient. We'll be back, with or without any special offers!

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My husband and I visited 47 King Street West for the first time on the £25 for three courses and a glass of Prosecco and were very pleasantly surprised.
The food was absolutely amazing, the flavours on each dish really complimented each other so well, and everything was cooked to perfection.
Also, the service was absolutely fantastic, we couldn't rate the waitresses higher - they were there when you needed them but were not overbearing at all.
The only downside was that the restaurant was rather quiet (only about 6 other tables), but it's small enough for this and it didn't bother us too much.
We will definitely be visiting again!

“Well Worth A Visit”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We decided on 47 as a quieter, Saturday afternoon alternative to the hustle and bustle of trying to get a decent table at one of the many fine eating places on Deansgate. We were greeted and seated at a table of our choice and opted for one course each from the daytime menu; chicken and leek pie for my wife while I opted for Penne with Chicken, Chorizo and Basil. The pie had a crisp, non greasy puff pastry lid and a delicate, slightly under seasoned filling which was sadly lacking the mmm factor. A little more chicken, perhaps? Or maybe a few lardons of crisp pancetta to complicate the texture as well as the flavour. My penne was cooked to perfection with a nice hit from the paprika complimenting the delicacy of the sauce. Again there could have been a few more pieces of chicken to balance the ingredient ratio. To accompany the food we had a Concha Y Toro Merlot - smooth and satisfyingly fruity, perfect for an afternoon. One or two teething troubles to overcome but the basics are in place and hopefully 47 will continue for many years to come

“Consistently great!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Been here several times, both for lunch and for dinner. Service is always great, the guys who run it are really friendly and helpful. The food is also great, a nice mix of meat, fish and veggie options. Go here with a gourmet dining card or during the week for their deals and it's great value for money.
