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.

    Excellent Sunday Dinner, 4 of us dined, favourite starter was the crab risotto, beef dinners and chicken were our mains choices, all delicious, beef particularly tender and flavoursome. The white chocolate bread and butter pudding was scrumptious. The cheese board was also well received.

    We had the taster menu deal and added the selected wines. The food and wine were absolutely excellent. However, I found the location within the casino strange and for that reason I would be reluctant to return..

    We were offered a really warm welcome when we got to the restaurant. We had the five course tasting menu with wines matched to the courses. The food was perfect, we both enjoyed each course and the wines really did bring out the flavours. The waiting staff were brilliant, we can't rate them highly enough. We were asked if we were celebrating anything (which we were), they were really knowledgable about the food and and wine and they were also really friendly. Lovely atmosphere as well. Thank you for a great dining experience.

    Having visited the restaurant on a number of occasions I didn't think it could improve. It surpassed itself. The menu looked interesting but the amazing flavours surprised us all. From start to finish it was faultless. The staff are a credit to you and I not only will be visiting again I will recommend you to my friends. Thank you x
