That repeatedly thwarted dinner with friends turned into a "Sod it, let's have a dinner club, and just go somewhere without making a thing out of it" and we ended up having a really, really good meal, and a super evening. The food was tasty,...More

We went there for my friends's birthday meal. The place was at a pleasant neighbourhood with quite a few nice and swanky eating places to choose from. The restaurant was on the main road. Although the decor of the restaurant was modern and chic, it...More

Eaten here a few times now and each time I'm left feeling a little unsure. The food is fine but doesn't blow me away for the high cost. Also the restaurant feels a little sterile and devoid of atmosphere.

Dinner with friends, my choice for restaurant this time, walked past at lunch many a time, thought we'd have a stab. End up upstairs. The food was excellent and did the menu justice - bread, three ox cheek puddings and a venison carpaccio for starters,...More

Came here on a Saturday night whilst staying in Manchester. The restaurant is not cheap and although the food is good, the options we ordered were not really worth the amount charged. I have had much better food for less and nothing was notably delicious....More

Accompanied by our centenarian relative our romantic Valentine meal took us on our first visit to The Rose Garden, and it won't be our last! My tasty guinea fowl terrine was enhanced by piccalilli, and the venison carpaccio also went down well. Delicious skate wing,...More

My friends bought a £60 gift voucher in March for my birthday. Presumably at that time you knew you would be closing in May and moving to Cornwall? Can you let me know how to get this money returned please.

Hi I was only made aware of the closure by the press coverage which took place a number of weeks before The Rose Garden closed. I cannot comment on how you would secure a refund on your gift.

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.
