We always make sure we pay a visit to Mackie Mayor when we are in Manchester. Great food and drink selection, bright and airy location, quick service and lovely staff.

Probably the worst eating experience in my whole life. Overpriced, less than average food, expensive drinks (£7.40 for a pint 😳) and an absolute nightmare to find your way around the (app based) menu. Do yourself a favour and find somewhere else. The serving staff...More

Visited with two friends. I was feeling a bit grim but a visit to this place made me feel human again. Buzzing. Great staff. Variety. No lurching drunks. A grown-up night out. Love it.
