I have been going to RBG for years and always enjoyed my lunches or evening meals whether downstairs or upstairs which is a little more formal. Now the new 'Terrace' is a great addition. It's a first floor terrace but don't worry if its raining it is covered and there are very modern wall heaters that make sure you're nice and warm as you have pre dinner drinks followed by some great food. All in all this place is my favorite Manchester haunt.

The new terrace area is amazing.... My friends and I adore it, great to be sat outside in the rain!!! Consistently good food, menu could change a little more but that's a bar and grill thing.

Great restaurant to visit if I'm in the city.

Visited the Bar and Grill last week whilst in Manchester for the food and beer festival, the new added feature of the outside terrace looked fantastic and was very busy - it was quite a sunny Sunday afternoon but with the heaters on it still looked inviting. We sat in the front salon part of the restaurant. Once again the food was fantastic, there were four of us eating we shared a platter to start and then had four different main meals - all excellently served, nice wine, good service and the added bonus of £25 off the bill for Individual members which had arrived in my email the day before!!

Very nice but tables far too close together, you can hear the conversations clearly on the tables around you. The waitress constantly had to pour wine and pass dishes across the table as she hadn't enough room to walk around
The food however was excellent and I will go again however next time I wil book and request a table next to the window

We had an early evening meal meal out on the new terrace. Food, wine were very good and the staff were very attentive. The terrace is an excellent addition. The space is warm, keeping the cold out on a typical Manchester evening and gives a nice feeling of space which sets it apart from other restaurants in Manchester
