Great meal at Thom's today. One of my favourite places in Manchester. There used to be more information about the place on this website? I often pop in for a cheeky pint too.
My friend and I came to the restaurant last night as she has been before and raves about it. I'm pleased to say the food was as she had described...beautiful. Yes it was a touch pricey and not something I could do every week but worth every penny. The staff were very pleasant 10/10 will definitely come again. A great way to finish what had been a great day.
Hi - I was on a weekend break in Manchester & we dined in Mr Toms on Saturday evening about 6:30.
The young lady serving us - the shorter of the two on the floor (an attractive young lady with glasses who also seems to have had charge of seating) was exceptionally good. She made the entire evening a huge pleasure. Whoever hired her deserves a bonus!
I heard a lot about this place through friends and when i went it was a great disappointment. After hearing such good things i was expecting brilliant food but it was bland and over cooked the steak was tough and bland and the pickled cabbage on the hot pot had no taste i will not be returning and wouldn't recommended eating here. I believe there are better places in Manchester for this sort of price
We heard about the classical British food on the menu here and when we arrived we were not disappointed the black pudding fritters were moreish. I had the lamb shank with minted pea champ & braised red cabbage with a beautiful lamb gravy and my partner had the bacon chop which was with smoked cheese mash and peppercorn sauce. When we got to the desserts the chef obviously had fun here a chocolate & orange creme brulee and my favourite childhood memory a jam roly poly which was beautifully presented with amazing custard. I advise anyone to visit Toms at least once we will definitely be returning again and again
My husband and I visited one Thursday early evening (approx 5pm). We were rather surprised to be told even at this time we were lucky to be able to get a table for 5.30pm when food service began. The restaurant is quite long and narrow with Victorian tiling throughout. After seeing the prices, we decided to stick to main courses only - I chose Goosnargh duck with a mulled port wine sauce (£16.95), as recommended by the waitress. The duck was pan-fried beautifully but was ruined by the over-use of seasoning/spices (mainly cloves) in the sauce. My husband opted for the Sirloin steak with chips (£14.95) which he said was very good. Overall, the meal was ok but rather overpriced for what it was - you're probably paying extra for the nice surroundings! I believe better food is available elsewhere for the same money or less.
Together with Sam's Chophouse one of the finest english cuisine you can get in town. The menu consists of amazingly nice 'Fish and Chips' or the famous 'Steak and Kidney Pudding'. Although you have to pay more than average it is well worth a visit even at lunch time.
Mr Thomas's Chop House
Excellent traditional bustling Victorian pub in the city centre. Seemed popular with all types of clientele when we visited - business people, tradesmen, Christmas shoppers etc. Interesting menu with some pub favourites combined with some more adventurous dishes - something for everyone. Excellent standard of cuisine. Good choice of wines. Will definitely revisit.
