Restaurant description

Brought to you by one of the UK’s best-loved celebrity chefs, James Martin’s eponymous restaurant is found within the glitzy Manchester235 Casino - showcasing the best in modern British seasonal cooking.

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.

    Great ‘feel’ to the dining room. Food was excellent and so was the service

    We did have a very nice meal, there were just a few details which would of put a lot of people off. To start, our first course was mushrooms with the sauce they pour over, we were not given spoons so could not eat most of it. Then as we were eating our first course they brought out the second which was risotto, but as we hadn’t finished took it back to the kitchen, when it came out at the correct time the waiter said/ admitted it was the same dish he had brought out the first time! It just kicked the meal off with a bad start and as it was for my boyfriends birthday it was disappointing to start with but the cheese course and meat dish we couldn’t fault!

    Me and my Fiancé had the Christmas Afternoon tea. All I can say is that it was amazing, delicious and well worth the money. £20 each, with some complimentary mulled wine. The waiting staff where Brilliant. Attentive, friendly and helpful. The Chef's did a great job of the afternoon tea, with Roast Ham and celeriac remoulade on a treacle and caraway seed roll. This was really very nice and all the flavours blended in perfectly together. The Egg Nog eclair was also a highlight! I would definitely recommend this anyone wanting to celebrate or just as a treat. The restaurant itself is inside the 235 Casino, albeit you wouldn't know. It's really well presented inside and the decor is very nice.

    Lovely festive afternoon tea. Good seevice. Crackers were a bit rubbish though! I bought exactly the same ones from Aldi for my 5 year old's school Christmas dinner!
