I've been to the Rose Garden on and off for several years now. They never fail to impress. Always a good atmosphere and fast service. Staff are always friendly to small children, which is nice to see. They even have plastic cups and cutlery and little activity bags for the little ones. Of course, we come here for the food... More

Used to be high quality food. Sadly it's gone downhill a lot in the last few years. Average bordering on mediocre. Terrible shame. Snotty staff.

Wow, someone has a little too much time on their hands, you managed to review every establishment on Burton road in one evening! On said evening whilst me and my 'snotty staff' were putting on an eight course wild game taster evening, you were sat in your pants in a darkened room writing your remarkably in depth reviews. Small issue... More

Thanks to all at The Rose Garden - we had a great night on Saturday. When we arrived we opted for the cocktails at the bar - they were great. Then we took a table upstairs in the restaurant. I had the veggie option ( life long vegetarian) but my two companions had steaks. The food was delicious - and... More

We went to The Rose Garden for a family meal to celebrate my Birthday. I had family staying from Portsmouth and my mum had always wanted to eat here as she had read good reviews in the Guardian. I've eaten here before and had a lovely time with great food so I was really disappointed when we had a bad... More

Dear Natasha, firstly, I am sorry that you felt the need to write this negative review. I always find it odd when people state how much they have enjoyed their several previous visits to a restaurant but never found the time to write a positive review, however when something out of the restaurants control (i.e the card machine not working)...

Lucky enough to have this amazing restaurant on my doorstep. I've been here too many times to count and the food and service are always outstanding. One of the best things is that the menu is constantly changing so you never get bored. The set menu is really good value without compromising on quality. Love it here!!

I visited The Rose Garden for a friend's birthday. The service was excellent. We were slow to order as we were talking so much but they simply let us take our time despite the restaurant being full. Again at the end of the evening we were one of the last to leave but there was no rush. The food was... More

Went to the Rose Garden as a couples treat. The restaurant is at the top end of our budget so we were aprihensive at first. However I think our experience was great value for money. All the food is delicious as well as looking amazing. You can tell it us high quality so are getting what you are paying for.... More

Description
New to West Didsbury’s Burton Road, The Rose Garden serves exciting contemporary British food created by owner and head Chef William Mills. It’s very much a family affair — William’s elder Brother Tom constructed the interior to a design created by their architect father, the restaurant’s striking visual appeal is complemented by professional but informal table service from William’s younger siblings.
