Combine the fabulous food with outstanding service and the sophisticated adults-only atmosphere and you have a recipe for a truly memorable meal out.
SHOWCASING THE BEST OF BRITISH FOOD
James Martin Manchester is open for dinner Wednesday to Saturday from 5pm. There is an astonishingly affordable tasting menu – with a vegetarian version of course - and a Chef’s Table for lavish seven-course private dining designed to impress.
Menus change frequently but the Cumbrian rib of beef to share, with malt-glazed wagyu ox cheek and beef ragu, is an enduring favourite. And the halibut with artichoke and ale purée always wows non-meat eaters.
The restaurant also serves the best Sunday lunch in town, and an exquisite spread for traditional afternoon tea on Saturdays.

"I rarely leave reviews but feel like James Martin deserves it. My husband and I booked a meal for tonight (having never been before) and we had an amazing evening. It was their reopening night and we were greeted in the casino entrance by a Manchester235 staff member. My husband accidentally left his face mask in the car so the gentleman gave him a disposable one and advised they must be worn throughout the venue. He then gave us hand sanitiser, took our temperatures and directed us to the James Martin desk.Evie Manley
There were two James Martin staff members at the desk and they took our details for track and trace, offered more hand sanitiser and offered to take our coats. They then directed us where to go next.
The food was outstanding, everywhere was really clean, we felt really comfortable throughout the evening and the staff were amazing. Massive shout out to our waitress! Definitely recommend."

The staff were wonderful from start to finish and very attentive. As to the meal, it was faultless. Not a bad word to say. I absolutely love the relaxed atmosphere. I would highly recommend a visit. We will definitely be back for more."Anonymous
