Restaurant description

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.

    A favourite place to dine. Quality of food and wine is excellent. The staff are friendly, but professional. James Martin Manchester never disappoints.

    We were welcomed warmly on arrival to the restaurant and were served competently all evening. Starters were well priced but we thought the meat plate to share at £70 was a little bit expensive especially as there was only one rib so therefore that couldn’t be shared. A lovely experience overall however.

    we both enjoyed the meal and wine. Both were very good quality and the staff were very courteous and attentive, Did not like that you had to pass through the poker room at the casino to get to the restaurant.

    2nd visit - tasting menu + wine flight. Food on another level compared to similar priced restaurants. Ambience in restaurant very intimate - makes you feel special. Well informed and courteous waiting staff. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or go again myself soon!
