A stylish, modern eatery at the iconic Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Garden Bar & Grille is a relaxing space to enjoy wholesome dishes all day, or simple unwind with cocktails or a craft beer in the comfy lounge.
The menu offers an extensive selection of hearty favourites and has taken inspiration from the seasonality of the ingredients available, and carefully and lovingly designed by the Head Chef. Dishes include mouth-watering black pudding and apple croquettes, butter poached smoked haddock Benedict. For mains, guests can sample the tender braised ox cheek with buttered new potatoes, tender stem broccoli and red wine sauce, or opt for the more traditional beer-battered haddock and chips.
And, for those with a sweet tooth, indulge in rich toffee apple pudding with butterscotch custard, or a refreshing lemon and lime bavarois, served with passion fruit sorbet. The bar at the Garden Grille Restaurant in Manchester has a great selection of beers on tap and also has a talented team ready to prepare classic cocktails.
A stylish retreat for visitors from near and far, with the restaurant being only three miles from the city centre of Manchester and a two minute walk from the Old Trafford Metrolink stop which can take you to and from the major train stations as well as in and out of the city.

We had booked for 7pm, were seated and ordered within 5 minutes. It took a further 15 minutes for our drinks to arrive, then a further 15 for our starters to appear. When asked if everything was ok, I replied that the food was very nice, but didn't want to wait another 30 minutes for our main courses. 30 minutes later, we were being offered free drinks (of which we already had enough) and snacks (in the middle of our dinner?) as the main courses still weren't ready. By the time they arrived, I had virtually gone off the idea of wanting more to eat. We complained at reception and were refunded the cost of the meal, but the whole situation left a bad impression.

Your staff are a credit to you, the service we received and the lovely acknowledgement that it was our wedding anniversary from all we spoke to was a lovely touch. All staff were very attentive, friendly and professional. (Thank you to the lady that recomended the gin with elderflower tonic - amazing!!) The food however was very average, we both had salmon for our main course and the whole dish was very bland. The potatoes were hard and looked like they had come from a bag and just reheated and the veg was ok but again quite tastless.
