Booked a table in advance as it seemed all Manchester restaurants were busy during our stay. Good food & service and though not cheap eats, good value for money

Hello Richard. Thank you for your great review. RD has an extensive dinner menu and the tavern menu runs concurrently, so there is something for every budget. Open 7 nights a week. Come dine with us again next time you’re in the area.~ Nancy
