Every dish in the 5 course taster menu was full of flavour and delicious. Very well thought out. Not one dish disappointed. We has 5 courses with matching wines for £30 each which is amazing value. The music and ambiance was great too.

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.

    We (a group of 5 people) opted for the 'taster menu' with matching wines. It proved to be and excellent choice. Each 'course' impressed with presentation, flavours and levels of preparation. Matching wines were entirely appropriate. Service was sensitive and helpful. Overall a pleasant 'gourmet' experience!

  • ((*** 6 November 2017 by Vicki Clark from High peak

    It was a very disappointing experience. We waited 20mins after being seated before we were offered drinks. There was only 5 other tables occupied so it wasn't busy and a table that came in 10 minutes after were served first.

    Great food and wine pairing for the tasting menu and good service - not sure about locality in the casino but this was t intrusive

    We had the tasting menu which was excellent. The waiting staff are highly trained and unobtrusive- lovely dining experience.

    Food was excellent and an interesting selection. Service also very good. Only downside was the location in a casino.

    Very nice taster menu, good wine pairings. Would definitely return to sample the a la carte menu. Service was good throughout the meal but felt we were seated out of the way somewhat and difficult to get their attention at the end.
