Lovely service food was amazing

Famed as the first steak and gin restaurant to open in Manchester, Alston Bar & Beef restaurant offers diners terrace eating or views of Manchester Cathedral from the dining room. Inside, find a speakeasy-themed bar, pouring its gins by taste profiles.
From the Alston Bar & Beef menu, start on scallops and cucumber with lime aioli and 3 bone rack of lamb mains alongside gem lettuce, broad beans, peas and pancetta, with mint jus for extra zest, while sharing diners can enjoy the 600g Chateaubriand.
Alston Bar & Beef creates their own botanical gins on-site and serves 35-day dry-aged steaks from Scottish family-run farms. Try the signature ‘copa serves’ G&T in the spacious interior featuring modern black and white furnishings contrasted by a vibrant portrait mural.
Visit Alston Bar & Beef in Manchester’s Corn Exchange basement, just a stone’s throw away from the river and Cathedral Gardens, and a 3-minute walk from Manchester Victoria Station.

Dined here a few times, the food & service never disappoints. Started with the scallops with black pudding crumb - delicious, followed by Sirlion - exquisite. Would highly recommend

Great decor, friendly and efficient service. Unfortunately the chateaubriand we ordered 'blue' was only rare and was a bit sinewy and didn't really melt in the mouth. Possibly need to inform the supplier? Expected better for the cost. Wouldn't choose to go again.

Went with some friends who we regularly look for stake places wherever we go. All concluded that the food was great (I went with the 300g ribeye) and the service was fantastic (I believe it was Becca serving us who was extremely polite, friendly and also helpful in planning the rest of our evening in Manchester), Atmosphere and decor felt like I was in a fancy London bar.
Have decided to book again the following week, this time bringing my foodie other half as a birthday treat.
