Recently featured in Harden’s Best Restaurant Guide, as well as in Manchester Confidential’s ‘Top 100 Restaurants in the North West’ and the I Love Manchester ‘Top 50 Restaurants’, this stunning restaurant from celebrity chef James Martin is a real highlight of the Manchester235 Casino.
Set away from the main gaming floor on its own mezzanine level, but very much an integral part of our casino, this spectacular restaurant offers the finest fresh, local cuisine in all of Manchester. Perfect for any occasion!
James Martin, well known and loved for his cookery shows on the BBC and Channel 4, produces classic, seasonally changing à la carte menus, special menus and traditional Sunday lunch of the highest quality. These include some of his tried and tested favourites, alongside exciting new dishes – all using the finest local produce.
A glance down the menu is a mouth-watering prospect. Unique starter options include Cumbrian venison tartare and Thai crab risotto, while for mains there’s everything from salt-aged duck to rabbit loin. Then, why not finish things off with our celebrated hot sticky toffee pudding?
In a novel twist, the restaurant even features its own Meat Market – a walk-in fridge displaying the different cuts of local meat maturing before your eyes, before being cut and served. All steaks are aged for a minimum of 28 days.
Guests will be wowed by the restaurant’s stylish decor. Combining industrial-chic girders with natural daylight and James’s own selection of luxury vintage-style fabrics and artwork, it all makes for an incredible dining experience.
For an exclusive, luxury private dining experience, why not book our Chef’s Table, sectioned off from the rest of the diners. We can prepare a special menu for up to 10 guests or create a bespoke menu, explaining each course as it arrives.
T&Cs: Chef's Table menu cannot be booked online. This menu must be booked at least one week in advance and full pre-payment is required to confirm the booking. For Chef's Table booking enquiries, please contact our restaurant team.
Head Chef at James Martin Manchester, Doug Crampton started his career in Leeds as a sous chef, before a trip down the M62 to Manchester235. Doug has worked alongside James Martin since the restaurant’s launch in 2013...
You might even be lucky enough to see James Martin himself, as he makes regular appearances at the restaurant throughout the year, and hosts special events where he cooks a selection of courses and takes your questions. You’ll need to book quickly though as places fill up fast.
