River Bar & Restaurant information
Head chef Oliver Thomas won the 'Taste of Manchester' award in 2010 for his outstanding British cuisine, which emphasises the use of local produce and traditional cooking methods. The result is terrific: how about grilled native lobster with garlic butter and chips, or Welsh Salt Marsh lamb with sweet potato, apricots and sugar-snap peas? Floor-to-ceiling glass panels flood the room with light during the day, and make for romantic evening dining, with the twinkle of the city lights.
