Brought to you by one of the UK’s best-loved celebrity chefs and named in The Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants 2015, James Martin’s eponymously-named restaurant is found within Manchester’s glitzy 235 Casino. An on-site ‘meat market’ sees guests step inside a cavernous walk-in meat fridge, which showcases cuts from the menu.

The seasonally-changing menu by James Martin is bursting with produce sourced from tried-and-tested butchers, fishmongers, game dealers, farmers and cheesemakers. Signature flavours might include Thai crab risotto, or coffee-crusted venison loin. Imaginative twists for dessert include white chocolate & whisky croissant pudding, or apple crumble soufflé. Traditional Sunday roasts with all the trimmings are also a firm favourite.

Perfectly matched to the menu, the wine list at James Martin in Manchester features old and New World bins, and experimental mixes are served at the adjoining Vega Lounge cocktail bar.

This classic British restaurant is set on its own mezzanine level, with edgy Great-Northern-warehouse styling including vintage fabrics and artwork, polished girders and exposed brickwork. Find restaurant James Martin just 3 minutes’ walk from Deansgate Train Station. Please note, guests must be aged 18 or over.

    I felt like I was in a scene from faulty towers. If it could go wrong it did. Once we were sat down I had to go and find someone after 30mins when we still hadn't had our drinks order taken. Food was slow with 15 mins between steak arriving and the mustard. Waiter opened a new bottle of wine and topped up an existing half full glass with no offer to taste. I have 8 other examples.....Very poor service all round. Food was OK

    Language barrier with staff.
    Piano was far too loud.
    Food was nice.
    Had to keep asking for drinks etc twice.
    We got asked for the full amount when we had deducted an amount from the 'discretionary' tip for poor service!!! Discretionary means it's at your discretion surely?
    Very embarrassing when I highly recommended it

    Enjoyed the food. The hake dish on the taster course was excellent
    Disappointed with both desserts.
    Wine average

    Restaurant is surprisingly pleasant despite being in a casino. Nice ambiance. We were there for the Sunday roast and it was probably the best roast we've had in a restaurant.
