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.

Celebrated my husband's birthday Friday 6th April. It isn't great walking through the casino & seeing people gambling on the way to the restaurant. James had a restaurant in Leeds at a similar location & neither my husband or I understand why James decides on these locations!!
A pianist playing & singing which we thought the singing was too loud for the ambience maybe just a pianst would have been better.
Had a table with a view outside it was near the servers station however they were professional at all times.
Had booked 5 course tasting menu but changed to a la carte which was no problem for the staff. Our waiter was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable & attentive. Can't praise Michal enough.
My only criticism of the meal was my main course of lamb rump was a very small considering it was £21. Michael had recommended I ordered side dishes with this so I did thankfully!!!

Amazing dining experience. The 5 course tasting menu is exceptional and very good value for money. Recommend the wine selection with it also. Great food, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Can’t wait to go again.

We really enjoyed our night; good food, nice staff & public transport home!! The steak sharing platter was excellent, the amuse bouche of lightly toasted bread & dripping was a blast from the past.

Had the faster menu with wine. Good was excellent and the wine chosen to go with it was exactly spot on. The waiter explained every dish and wine. What a great place to dine.

Excellent meal at very reasonable prices. A little surprised that the restaurant is in a casino but this did not detract from the experience.

My husband and I are big fans of James Martin's cookery programmes on the TV, as well as loving his recipes. On arrival at his Manchester restaurant we were greeted by a very friendly lady and shown to our table. She also offered straight away to take some photographs of us in the reception. The waitress, who served us, was just lovely. She advised us on the various dishes, the wine to accompany it and how it was all cooked. As expected, the meal was delicious and exceeded our expectations by far. Desserts were equally great. All this came at a very reasonable price, which came as a surprise given the restaurant is right in the city centre. Overall, the visit was a real treat for us. Thank you :-) very much!
