Firstly i booked Christmas dinner at the glass house through "open table" we received the confirmation and all was well, or so we thought! the booking was for ten people to be seated at 2,30 pm. Getting closer to the day we had not been asked for menu choices so got in touch with the restaurant which was a mission on its own, we were then informed that for larger parties and special days they do not take bookings from "open table" so we did not have a reservation! They could fit us in brilliant!! payed the deposit rush around getting everyone's menu choices and emailing them through. I wish they had been booked up!! The starters came out Roast plum tomato soup mine was not far off chilled where as one of my guests practically had to wait for hers to cool. I left mine and explained to the waiter why, he apologised whilst lifting the bowl and spilling the soup down my suit. The mains was roast turkey wrapped in streaky bacon! It was so dry and hard my German Shepard would have struggled to chew it. I had on guest who had traveled from South Africa to spend Christmas with us and asked if they might have a Yorkshire pudding she could try so i asked one of the waitresses to which she very nicely said she would ask and off she went to the kitchen never to be seen again. The final straw on the camels back was when we had paid for the meal at £59.00 per head the final course being Tea / Coffee and Petit fours they cleared the table and we waited and waited nothing was offered to us so i ended up having to order coffee from the bar and paying again. I am not a fussy person and eat out regularly in Manchester. Take my advice STAY AWAY FROM THE GLASS HOUSE i should have realised when they could still accommodate a party of ten on less than a weeks notice coming up to Christmas alarm bells should have rung!! Definitely a Christmas to forget

A reasonable menu choice and reasonable quality food to match, but with only 7 people in the entire restaurant it took an age to get the first course and then an age to get the second course. The bottle of wine was just plonked on the table unopened (screw top) and without anyone checking it was correct. Eat out,

Other options around the hotel for breakfast much better than this restaurant. The quality of the food and freshness is bad. I tried for one day and I don’t think will do it again. Add espresso pay more add americano pay again.

I had dinner at the Glasshouse last Saturday evening. The two waiters who served me were both professional and attentive and did a great job, bit the food let the place down. The crab fish cakes I had to start contained very little crab, I couldn't see or taste any, just a lot of potato.
The main was even more disappointing, a flabby grey under-cooked piece of fish on indifferent vegetables. Not nice, and not cheap. I won't be going back

Visited this restaurant yesterday for an evening meal, service was quick and staff polite and helpful. Not many choices of steak as they had sold out. But alternative choice was very good and plenty of it, good value for money.
