Restaurant description

At the top of the No.1 Spinningfields building in Manchester, 20 Stories is a stunning rooftop restaurant, bar and terrace offering unparalleled city views. Filled with striking contemporary design that includes a tranquil garden, this is an essential choice for diners looking for an elegant spot to indulge and socialise.

The 20 Stories menus celebrate seasonal British flavours, with an eclectic line-up of signature dishes. Bold starters include roasted pigeon with cherries and violet mustard, and roasted scallop with pearl barley and Rioja distillation, moving on to hearty mains like rack of pork with salt-baked pineapple, and the vegetarian butter-poached salsify with burnt leeks and parsnip purée.

Desserts at 20 Stories in Manchester City Centre continue the British theme, with signature Manchester tarts on offer, as well as other treats like yoghurt parfait with rhubarb, rose and lemon. The elegant bar area is a chic setting to enjoy creative cocktails, fine wines and premium spirits, or take them to the terrace to take in the 360-degree city views.

A glamorous rooftop destination in Manchester, 20 Stories is an 8-minute walk from Salford Central Rail Station.

    It is a ridiculous amount of money for food which is not worth. We ordered the chicken main course for two and were served up one whole chicken with a gravy and a puree. Only the puree had some sort of taste and rest was just average. Zero presentation on this one and they charged 50 quid for nothing. Dessert and starter were good but the whole experience was underwhelming

    Hello we were unfortunately quite disappointed with our first visit to your restaurant. One of our friends meal had to be returned back as it was severely under cooked. & the presentation of all the food was not very professionally serviced. Overall we feel that we will not be visiting again as you know the choice of restaurants in manchester is amazing so we will be trying another restaurant. But thank you .. Keith wolden
