Despite being busy (we had to wait a minute or two for a table), we were quickly served and the folks were really friendly. Better still: The Royal Breakfast made for a royally good start to the day. Brilliant little place.

Thought we would try the Gorilla as every time we walk passed it seems to be busy. So glad we did. the Roast Beef Dinner was to die for. The place is very retro modern & relaxing. Really worth a try .

We all had the roast beef which was amazing!!!! The beef was cooked to perfection, incredibly tender & really tasty. It was served with lovely... More

The menu is extensive for breakfast and brunch, serving huge portions of delicious variations on classic breakfast dishes. The service was really friendly too so we would definitely recommend a visit. The location is great for people visiting from out of town too as it's just round the corner from Manchester Oxford Road station.

I visited here with my parents and the bar/restaurant is in a perfect location, literally across the road from the O2 ritz concert venue. We ordered hot dogs and burgers from their, although small, very unique menu with flavour combinations not many bars would be willing to try. It was extremely full and we had to stand at the bar...

Visited for early dinner before going to a concert at the Bridgewater. Sat upstairs, nice surroundings and atmosphere, had veg Mexican tacos and deluxe chips with parmesan & truffle oil. All very tasty, well presented, good friendly service. Reasonably priced. Would definitely go again.
