Really shocked by the standards of this restaurant on my second visit. Arrived on Black Friday to be told there was a 30 minute wait for a table, understandable considering the day so we decided to give it a miss. After leaving we thought it would be best to wait for the table as it would be the same everywhere... More

The first Christmas Dinner of the season... Four of us on our Management Team night out and we expected the restaurant to be busy, however we were one of three tables eating. Saying that service was a tad slow and we all noticed that the waiter, as lovely as he was, had an intoxicating bad case of B.O. Needless to... More

Booked a afternoon tea for our shopping trip to Manchester. It was lovely with a very nice glass of champagne. The staff were attentive even though it was packed out in there. I would advise booking as the queue for a table was big.

Traditional Sunday roast, cooked well and with generous portions. Good service and ambience, and great table with views over the city centre.

Now I'm more than partial to a bit of a Bloody Mary pick me up, particularly if I'm feeling tired and emotional the morning after the night before. So in the spirit of self-medication we repaired to the 2nd Floor Bar last Saturday, where they sorted me out good and proper! The friendly floor manager asked me if I fancied... More

Enjoyed coffee, lunch, drinks, and dinner, there during a short break in Manchester (on separate occasions!). Good food, fine wine, fantastic service. Robert and Carla, in particular, looked after us very well and my friend's coeliac diet was wonderfully catered for. Nothing too much trouble for the wonderful staff. Can't wait to visit again

We booked a table for five of us and had a very pleasant Saturday lunch here and found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and eager to please. The food was all good and everyone enjoyed their meals. We were able to have a relaxed lunch and have a good catch up. The dining room is modern and there... More

Visited with my daughters after a busy morning shopping, we had a sharing charcuterie board and selection of nibbles with a cheeky glass of prosecco. What's not to like ? Staff were attentive and pleasant and it has a nice relaxed atmosphere. We did note the afternoon tea served at the next table looked pretty good ! (That'll be for... More
