The River Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel is a two-AA-rosette restaurant and one of Manchester’s best places to eat and drink in a glass-walled, riverside setting overlooking Santiago Calatrava’s Trinity Bridge. The convivial atmosphere is also deeply luxurious with purple leather chairs, semi-circular banquettes, while Fornasetti plates, mirrors and lithographs and prints decorate the walls. There is also an exclusive private dining room for up to 24 people which is licenced for weddings and civil ceremonies. The restaurant serves afternoon tea and dinner and the a la carte menu has been devised around the best local and seasonal produce. An additional three-course seasonal menu changes each month and is just £24.95 for three courses at dinner (except Saturday Evening). The popular Sunday lunch menu is £22.50 per person for three courses and is always accompanied by live music. You can also try Afternoon Tea or for a real indulgent treat sample the Champagne, Bellini or G & Tea’s for £33.00 per person.
(Only available Sunday 31st March) 12:00-16:00.
