“A Lunchtime Treat”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

As a group of women friends we eat in Manchester or the close suburb of Chorlton once a week throughout the year. We will certainly visit Annies again, it is a really good find. It has subtle style with its dark simple interior, amazing friendly and efficient staff and well presented food from its lunchtime menu. A proper restaurant at last, not just a bar.

“Lancashire Hot Pot as it should be”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Best Lancashire hot pot I have ever had in a pub or restaurant. Mostly restaurants overflavour it or put lots of veg or herbs in which is not proper hot pot. Annie's hot pot is melt in the mouth meat and crispy potato slices on top and leaves you wanting more.
Staff: very friendly and welcoming.
Environment: cosy and dark.
And: we were a large group and they coped very well.

“lovely food and staff”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This was my 2nd visit to Annie's, came with 2 friends and requested a table and seat on the ground floor as my friend could not manage the stairs. the staff here are more than accommodating and very helpful, they are not pushy and come across as genuinely friendly. I went to have a look downstairs and the manager took time to show me around without trying to push me into booking anything. This used to be the old conservatory bar and they have turned it into a lovely cosy bar/restaurant upstairs with some more cosy seating downstairs with a classy restaurant feel. It has been quiet on both times that i have visited but im sure with time this will gain more followers. the food is fabulous, probably slightly more than you would pay if you just wanted a snack on a sat afternoon shopping but for a meal you cant go wrong.

“Lovely meal, great service”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We eat out in Manchester a lot and somehow this place had slipped beneath our radar until now. We enjoyed cocktails in the bar before being shown to our table, our waiter was really friendly and the service overall was outstanding. The food was excellent too and reasonably priced. A great addition to the Manchester restaurant scene, I've already booked to go again!

“10/10”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

The best hot pot I've ever had. Hubby had the lamb shank which melted in the mouth. Great place, great food, and great service. Definitely be back soon. Quite fancy the afternoon tea or the Sunday lunch. Thanks for my first Manchester tart. Fab.
