I attended the Zinc Bar and Grill with 20 colleagues from work as a reward for the hard work we had carried out the previous 12 months.
Not being a person who goes into Manchester much, I was first charges £4.50 for a pint of Boddington's ( Ouchhhhh), was not expecting that.
We then waited in the bar area whilst we all had a natter and was then called up for our meal after about an hour.
I chose Duck Spring Rolls as a starter and that's all I got.
Two Spring Rolls lost on a plate with some kind of sauce in a little container. No garnish or salad to go with it. having said that, the Duck Rolls were very tasty.
The main course I chose was a chicken and again was very tasty but all I got with it was a small cup of chips, ( again no garnish or vegetables).
My sweet of choice was rurbarb bakewell with a small blob of ice cream.
Just to clarify, all the courses were very tasty but in my opinion, there no colour or imagination put into the food.
Management paid for the food which was very nice of them but I do not think I would go back on my own steam.

The bar was bubbly but it was really quiet in the restaurant for a 6.30 sitting so we had excellent service. I had smoked haddock and leek risotto with a poached egg and it was cooked perfectly. The smoked haddock flavour was subtle and the dish thoroughly enjoyed. The porn star martini was delicious too.

Visited Manchester for a couple of days. When I have been in Manchester have had lunch at Zinc previously. Was not disappointed again. Went in for lunch and decided to have lunch time special meal. Risotto is great, one of best I have tasted, then I had the fish and chips. The Batter is so light. My daughter had the burger and she said it was great. Great meal served by friendly and efficient staff. Thanks.
