“Always busy and buzzing,” not least when it lays on dedicated Oktoberfest antics, this raucous Bavarian-style beer hall serves up “great food” of a heavy Alpine bent, from schnitzel, spätzle and fondue to other rib-coating fare. Manchester-based Mission Mars, which owns the joint, is clearly in an expansive mood: following siblings in Birmingham and (as of December 2022) Liverpool, another Schloss is due to take over the former Rainforest Café site on London’s Leicester Square, in Spring 2024.

Not for the faint-hearted – Manchester's first and only Bavarian-style beer hall (plus bakery), offering what they bill as “mountain frolics” aplenty, i.e. live music, fattening staples like currywurst and copious Pilsner. The hit formula spawned a Birmingham sibling in 2021.

“Loud, fun… copious plates of tasty food… great beer” – that’s the scene at this “vibrant and friendly” German-themed beer-hall. It’s not subtle, but hits the mark for a big night out with its “tempting options of hearty food” – think “pork cheese croquettes, currywurst, trout with spaetzle…”

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"This was our 5th or 6th visit and, having been long-standing fans, was a crushing disappointment. The food was pretty good, though it is usually better. The service was appalling. Items of food were missing and despite there being a bar dedicated to serving diners it took 20 minutes to receive 2 glasses of wine. Staff more interested in watching the show. Our entire bill was comped."
