Unlike anything else Manchester has to offer, the restaurant hosts its own Meat Market: a unique walk-in fridge with the different cuts of meats featured on the menu on show to our guests.
|Cumbrian Lakeland Fells|
|Its leaner, tighter texture, slightly darker colour and unique flavour makes it so delicious you can almost taste the meadow in the meat. It is one of Britain’s most prized secrets and until recently, only known within the borders of Cumbria. It must be the clean Lakeland air.|
|Take one Wagyu bull going by the name of Black-Gold Shogun and a herd of Holstein-Friesian cows, stick them in a field in Yorkshire and then let nature take its course. Wagyu’s extensive marbling of fat that flows throughout the meat produces a tender and flavourful cut.|

|Bone marrow and black truffle||£2.00|

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.
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.
We recommend booking in advance to guarantee a table.
