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.

    The food was delicious and the service was great. There was little atmosphere as it was a quiet evening, but it didn’t spoil our evening.

    It was a brilliant experience from beginning to end. The service was excellent we chose the taster menu with wine to go with each dish. Each dish was explaind to us as it was served. The restaurant was lovely just what I was expecting tables not to close to one another lighting just right and relaxing. We were celebrating our anniversary and received a glass of wine and a card which was a nice little touch. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Thanks James's and your team for a wonderful time.

    Went for Afternoon tea, was a party of four. Food was delicious and ample for price. Setting and decor pleasing. Service excellent. One of our party was here from Demark and first time experiencing Afternoon tea. Perfect all round. One small quibble one toilet which wasn't clean. All in all one of the best Afternoon teas we have had and will be returning.
