Harden's survey result
A “magnificent”, interiors-magazine-worthy setting in an old Victorian office block adds to the drama of a visit to this hip enterprise, by Justin Crawford and Luke Cowdrey, aka The Unabombers (also behind Electrik and Volta). The small plates generally hit the mark, the all-day Sunday roasts are “superb” and it’s “great fun being able to finish off with a game of table football!”. “We were a large motley crew and our waitress did a fantastic job accommodating everyone – from vegans to carnivores, toddlers to octogenarians”.
“Probably Manchester’s grandest dining room (and bar)”, this (sometimes “very noisy”) venue in a refurbished Victorian office building is run by DJ partners Luke Cowdrey and Justin Crawford, aka The Unabombers (and owners of Volta in West Didsbury). The menu of eclectic small plates mostly earns a solid rep from reporters, but results can also be “workmanlike”; “nice Negronis” though.
DJs Luke Cowdrey and Justin Crawford, owners of West Didsbury’s Volta, launched their second Manchester venture in this grand, elegantly refurbished Victorian building (formerly the Refuge Assurance Company, now the Palace Hotel) in late-2016. With its atrium ceiling and ornate cupolas, it’s “a fantastic (if noisy) space” that “brings the delights of small-plates eating to the city-centre”.
