" We had a wonderful time, couldn't fault a single thing. The standard of food, wine and service was amazing and James was his usual charming self! Thanks to everyone involved in making it such a brilliant event, I look forward to seeing you soon for another one! "
"James was an excellent host, I mentioned at booking that the lunch was a gift from my husband for my birthday, and finding a personalised card from James on the table was a lovely touch. Obviously, a lot of attention to detail goes on in the planning stages. The food and wine was lovely, a couple of items were not my favourite i.e the salmon but I still enjoyed trying it. The roast beef was far too rare for me, I'm old fashioned and like it very well done, but one of the waitresses noticed I'd not eaten mine and brought me more pieces cooked to my taste. The dessert was delicious! I've dined before and thought the sticky toffee pudding was the best I'd ever tasted but the Pannacotta matches it. "
" We had an amazing time. The event was a surprise for my birthday off my hubby. It was a fantastic day, every one of James’s team were so friendly and helpful - such a lovely team.
The food was to die for absolutely fabulous. The wine that accompanied the food was the best.
James is so entertaining as well as being the best chef ever. His staff in the kitchen are so amazing very talented. The staff in front of house are polite and very helpful. We cannot wait for the next event! "
" Fantastic food and all well presented. The front of house staff were exceptional. The Q and A with James was a delight. We look forward to returning to the restaurant and hope the same staff will be in the kitchen and on the floor. "
" We had a great day thank you, great value for money, wonderful food and wine with a very charming host who had a lot of time for everyone there. We would definitely come back ! "

Time to #meettheteam again. This is Elliott and he quite obviously loves having his picture taken 📸🤣 since he started we have all called him Eric, not really sure why but we did and now we can't seem to stop. He hasn't been with us long but we couldn't imagine our kitchen without him now. He is a valued and talented chef but mostly we just like having him around because he is just so fun to wind up 🤭🤣 #chef #jamesmartin #manchester #jamesmartinmanchester #restaurant #funny
