What a lovely, cosy, bar/restaurant this place is. We ate on the terrace which has heat lamps and snuggly blankets. We ate a superb beef roast, which was faultless. The staff were super attentive and the cocktails were amazing. See you guys soon. Can't wait

A balcony, some heaters, comfortable sofas, brilliant cocktails, good service all add up to a very romantic atmosphere for a night out with your partner in life. Very classy and enjoyable. I have been here multiple times and had the same experience that I described above. They make a nice version of my favourite cocktail as well, Old Fashioned.

We sat down to eat at around 20:20pm and we finished the 3course meal at 23:10 so almost 1 hour wait per course and not once was we updated at any... More

Very good selection of food and some good value lunchtime specials ,miss the Thai green curry though ,don't know why they took it off the menu a few years ago as it was really popular and better than most Thai restaurants around Manchester

If I tell you that I went here 2 nights in a row it'll give an indication of the place. Superb staff who know about the food they're serving, lovely atmosphere and the food is delicious.

A fabulous place. Great food, drink, service and atmosphere. Had mussels to start which were delicious... If you love steak then try the T-Bone!!!! Loved the alfresco dining - even if it was chilly!! Would highly recommend.

Went here with a group of 8 on Saturday night. We were seated right next to the kitchen on a table more or less on its own which was good. Some of the starters were - French onion soup which was rather salty, oysters which went down a treat and a chicken liver parfait which was excellent. Mains was an... More

As always! Consistently good with great service. The Terrace has really expanded and is a great option, warm, cozy and trendy. This is an old gem of town that keeps going strong.

My friend and I meet up every three months or so and choose a restaurant (usually in Manchester) for a catch-up and lunch. As it was a beautiful autumnal day and warm we chose the Restaurant Bar and Grill. We asked to sit upstairs where the roof opens but heaters keep one warm. We were immediately asked what we wanted...
