“I'd go to Hawksmoor any time of day or night, any day of the year just for a Shaky Pete’s (gin, ginger, pale ale) and a bag of chips with anchovy hollandaise…but throw in some very fine meat (and fish, don't forget the fish), invariably perfectly cooked, and it’s really just as well it’s 50 miles away, or I’d be reduced to selling internal organs to pay for it all…” – one reviewer evocatively sums up the joys of this all-rounder Mancs outpost of this über-hip (but not inexpensive) steakhouse chain.

“The stuff meaty dreams are made of!” – this “vibrant yet relaxed” outpost of the hipster steakhouse chain (which opened in 2015) is arguably the classiest all-rounder in Manchester. “The bar area may be a bit overwhelmingly clubby, but the main dining area is – at least at lunchtime – light and airy”, occupying an impressively converted Victorian space, and with comfortable seating. Steaks are “amazing”, “all the sides are also faultless” (not least “the best chips in the north west!”), and also “what is surprising is the quality of the seafood in what is a carnivore's delight”. “Service is always top notch and the wine list is a dream”. Sadly, though, the special offer whereby you can buy £4,500 bottles of wine for £300 has now finished!

“Now established as one of Manchester’s best restaurants”, the northern outpost of this epic modern steakhouse group has recreated much of the special aura it has established ‘darn sarf’ with its formula of “first class” British steaks, well-crafted cocktails, and “slick service”, all provided in an impressively converted Victorian space. “It’s not a cheap day out… but blimey it’s worth it!” according to (nearly all) reporters. Top Tip: “despite the meat focus, the seafood here is a hidden gem – it’s stellar, as is the wine list”.

For 31 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).

We had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it...

"We had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it. My beetroot salad with horseradish was very tasty and my husband enjoyed his potted beef starter with 2 Yorkshire puddings and delicious gravy. My fillet steak was tender and delicious and my husband enjoyed his half chicken. We shared a portion of lovely triple- cooked chips. This is a first class restaurant and we look forward to our next visit."
