“Tasty”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Had a great meal at Sam's Chop House. Well presented and good mannered staff made me feel right at home straight away.
Food is pricey but worth it for the quality.
I was celebrating an anniversary and was made to feel special.

“VERY GOOD BUT EXPENSIVE”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

FOR
Good quality British menu, excellent wine list, attentive staff, experiencing a fine heritage and , history in a pleasant atmosphere.

AGAINST
Very mean with the cheese and biscuits for £9.00 - looked like a micrometer was used to - measure the slivers of cheese.
The final bill includes a 10% service charge yet bill says SERVICE IS DISCRETIONARY. Why not have the bill exclusive of the service charge and let people decide their own tips?

CONCLUSION
Good time enjoyed on Saturday evening paying £218.45 for six excluding the service charge. The PROS outweighed the CONS but the CONS do need addressing.

“A real Manchester gem”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Good range of ales in this traditional city centre pub, good service and great food. Seems to attract a lot of suits over lunch and in the restaurant which is separated from the bar area, and it does sometime get noisy. Its worth a visit if only to try the traditional steak and kidney pudding, must be the best in Manchester. Staff are friendly and prices are very reasonable for somewhere in the heart of the city.

“Good "old fashioned" drinkers pub.”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

As the title says, this is a Good "old fashioned" drinkers pub.
We just had a few beers here after a meal elsewhere and it was a good place to round off the evening.
It was very quiet in the bar with only one other group there, which was fine by us. The bar and staff were friendly and welcoming and there is lager and cider and three hand pump beers. Good whacky selection too according to my colleague who knows about his whiskies.
A couple of tables outside which I guess you have to get lucky with, but its not catering to the cafe set after all.
Nice clean restrooms too which, at the end of the night, is a tribute to the staff.
