Private Dining Rooms in Manchester

Ian Jones, Food and Drink Editor

Manchester has countless restaurants, serving up whatever kind of food you could possibly desire. But what if you want something a little more private, while still being fed by world-class chefs? You’re in luck. The city has many venues with palatial private rooms, set aside for bookings who have more than the average number of guests. Whether you’re celebrating a graduation, fancy a post-funeral feast or just want to get friends and family together for some special, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

We have everything you need. From high-end tasting menus, to fantastic steakhouses, to classic Thai cuisine, and beyond. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll no doubt find it here. And while you’ll likely have to pay extra for the privilege, it’s worth the added expense for a memorable meal surrounded by your nearest and dearest.  But it’s not all for those with deep pockets either, there are plenty of affordable options.

These are just some of the highlights of the secret side of the Manchester food scene. Try them all, you won’t regret it.
