Restaurant description

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.

Private dining is also available at Annies Restaurant (complete with VIP bar area), and early-bird menus are available for theatre goers. Manchester Piccadilly Station is a 15-minute walk away.

    Friendly relaxing place. Good hot food, a fabulous choice of homespun dishes. Shame there is no draught beer. Background music was far too loud, in fact, it was unnecessary.

    I came with my family for a big celeabration for my big birthday and retirement from my job, which was very nice.The staff at the restaurtant were very helpful and friendly. We all had the meal upstairs because my mum can not work down the stairs. Overall our experience to Annies was a wonderful evening for us all.
