Bill’s Manchester

Bill's Manchester

Bill’s Manchester has moved from John Dalton Street to its new home in Spinningfields, with a brand new look featuring modern decor teamed with vintage items sourced by Bill himself.

A stylish new space in Spinningfields

This family-friendly venue has opened its doors with a vibrant new look, in a stylish new space in Spinningfields, Manchester. Set across one floor, in the city’s financial district, this glamorous new restaurant and bar looks all set to become one of Spinningfields’s key destinations.

The cosy interiors and eclectic menu make it an ideal spot for both breakfast and lunch, with sharing tables that make for a convenient co-working space or business meeting. Bill’s Manchester comes to life in the evenings, with vibrant cocktails and delicious dinner specials each night.

We head down for a sneak preview, along with a chance to meet the man himself. And he’s a delight. Charming, friendly and a far cry from the vein-throbbing-in-the-side-of-the-head chef-proprietor caricature given off by the likes of Ramsay, Pierre-White, et al. And he’s also a fan of Bowie and the Bee Gees, which makes him A-OK with your esteemed food and drink editor.

And the food is great too. This Spinningfields venue offers up bespoke cocktails and gin options, but the globe-trotting menu is the same as the one you love from all the other Billses across the nation. We begin with a pile of delicious chicken skewers, perfectly cooked – charred on the outside and nicely soft inside. The menu is wide-ranging, touching all corners of the globe.

Each of Bill’s restaurants has free reign to establish their own menus

One of the best mains is the sea bass, nicely crispy on the outside, with beautiful white flesh beneath, flaking apart wonderfully. The half chicken is another favourite, smothered in a thick peri peri-style sauce, with a tin bowl of hot, thin French fries.

This is followed by dessert, an array of home-cooked chocolate brownies with a big ball of ice cream. Not to mention a great range of cocktails and varieties of wine.

Bill’s Spinningfields is a worthy addition to Spinningfields, offering up hearty family-friendly grub at a decent price, in unique and charming surroundings.
