Restaurant description

A proper haven for BBQ lovers, Manchester Smokehouse is a bustling wood-filled venue that serves up traditional home-style dishes from the States along with a tremendous selection of craft beers, all with a packed line-up of live music events.

Rubbed with secret recipe herbs and spices, the meats on the Manchester Smokehouse menu are cooked to perfection over hickory, oak and fruit woods. Tuck into Texas hand-sliced brisket, pulled pork, and juicy baby back ribs, adding in smoked garlic fries, wood-fired nachos, or the onion bomb with Alabama white BBQ sauce. For brave diners, there are chicken wings marinated in signature hot sauce that is so spicy that it comes with its own disclaimer.

Hand-stretched pizzas are a popular choice at Manchester Smokehouse, along with a choice of well-stacked burgers. For pudding, indulge in sweet waffles with ice cream, chocolate sauce and toffee popcorn, while from the bar there are all kinds of ales and craft beers on top, along with a great selection of artisan spirits.

A meat-lover's dream, Manchester Smokehouse packs in an eclectic live music schedule, and sits 12 minutes' walk from Deansgate Rail Station.

    I was quite disappointed by my experience here. Many key items were not available but staff did not inform us of this till we were ordering. They had been over twice to see if we were ready and brought drinks but never mentioned the reduced menu. One of the unavailable items was pulled pork which is in around 10 dishes on the menu. They also didn't have any ribs, really poor for a smoke house but they at least could have told us. Other dishes were also unavailable. The restaurant was quite quite but service was slow and generally poor. We had a toddler with us but it was only as we left we noticed they have packs with things to entertain kids, we weren't offered one. My food was ok but not everyone on my group was happy with theirs. I have visited Reds True BBQ next door many times and that is were I will be returning to in future.

    Really nice vibe, good menu, they were busy when we went, so we made some allowance for slower service, but it had been an hour and 20 minutes since arriving until we got our main meals. There was a couple at the table next to us who arrived 40 minutes after we did who got served there food at the same time... quite a few drinks we wanted were out of stock too which added to our dismay really. Lovely place, abs the food was nice when it eventually arrived, but the slow service is enough to put us off returning soon. The prices were high when considering the portion sizes. We ordered a side of corn on the cob and received 2 very small pieces for £3. Both our mains were £15, and consisted of not too much meat but a lot of bread to bulk it out, which isnt what you go to a smokehouse for.

    We had a wonderful experience. The staff provided a great service that was friendly and clearly a well-oiled process, they all worked together collaboratively. They were really helpful with menu questions, and even predicted questions before we asked them based on conversations we were having. We ordered the £39.50 share platter and the food was amazing. It was my boyfriend's birthday so I requested a piece of cheesecake with a candle quietly - they swiftly brought it out, but gave us two pieces so that we could have one each, which I thought was a lovely touch. Great value, great quality, great afternoon :)
