Owned by coronation street actress Jennie McAlpine and her partner, Annies Restaurant & Tea Shop serves classic British cuisine with a fine dining flourish. Found within the iconic Royal Exchange Theatre, Annies in Manchester is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the lively area.

The fare ranges from the simple pleasures, including warming rarebit, to refined delicacies such as scallops with black pudding. Lamb shank and fish and chips are favourites on the Annies menu, as are her famous pies. Guests can also choose a cut from the selection of steaks.

Truly comforting puddings such as sticky toffee pudding and apple pie are highlights on the dessert menu at Annies in Manchester. Relax with a glass of wine in the homely setting, decked with comfy armchairs and soft lighting.

    Very welcoming atmosphere and a beautiful afternoon tea. A very good selection of sandwiches and cakes. Balloons were placed on the table for our celebration and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

    I have visited before and been very happy with the experience. Unfortunately this time I was somewhat disappointed. My guest was 80 yrs old, hence the visit. She wanted a prawn cocktail, taking her back to the 60's. It was described as "our taste" on the prawn cocktail. It came as 3 prawns on a skewer with a moderately hot chilli sauce...not anywhere near what was expected? We ordered the fillet steak, which was delicious, if large. The chips, sadly, were very dark (well cooked) and it could be said were a little overfacing for the plate. (Am sure it's rare for people to complain about too many!)
    Not to was sad for my visitor who hadn't been to Manchester since 1967.

    We had a lovely afternoon and are looking forward to visiting again. The food was delicious and Gregg was a fabulous host! The table decorations for our mums birthday were a lovely surprise and certainly added that special something! Thank you!

    Visited on a Monday evening which wasn't really a good idea as for most of the time there was no one else in the restaurant. Despite this the food and service were very good. I had fish and chips and my friend had cheese and onion pie. Traditional food, perhaps Annie's could have a moreal adventurous menu, but not on a Monday!

    Lovely restaurant, great friendly staff and good atmosphere. We were first sat downstairs by the kitchen door at the back corner, the door was constantly swinging open and shut with staff going in and out and was squeaky. Staff then moved us to another table after asking which was much better. Would recommend not having a dining table right by the door.

    Food was great however not many options for a vegetarian.
