Dukes 92 was originally a stable block for the horses delivering foods off barges to the Merchants warehouse opposite. From these humble begininngs the building now houses Manchester's original bar and grill which has been refurbished and extended three times since its opening in 1991 the space today is informal and airy with the buildings heritage being reflected in a subtle blend of antique furniture and modern fixed seating.
With its most recent refurbishment Dukes can now properly call itself a venue with two bars, three private events spaces, a grill restaurant, excellent smoking facilities, canalside terrace and balcony overlooking the canal basin. Dukes continued appeal relies on its ability to transform from a relaxed, family friendly environment by day to a vibrant and stylish bar and grill by night.
The space has been extended and refurbished since its opening in 1991 and inside its interior combines contemporary features and its trademark antique furniture.

We came here for lunch and sat outside as the weather was lovely. Really nice location and atmosphere. Good music and relaxed. We had a meat and cheese sharing platter which was gorgeous, my only comment would be that the servings were quite small, but otherwise I could not fault it :-). Highly recommended!

A waiter dropped chips down the back of my friend’s legs and didn’t apologise. It was very busy and they took 25 mins to take our food order after asking us to wait 10 mins because our table wasnt ready. The food was good when it arrived but wouldn’t go again on a saturday night

The "special" steak at £47 for two people isn't worth half of that. First of all we sent it back because it was so rare it was still mooing. When it was returned having been flashed under a hot grill (along with the accompaniments) it was totally inedible apart from two pieces. There was so much fat & gristle along with a huge bone (which we weren't advised would be included in the price - what are we cavemen?) only 2 pieces were edible.
Really disappointed with our food this time around & by their own admission weren't busy so no idea why we had to wait for drinks - bottle of red wine arrived 1/2 way through our steak.

We thought Dukes 92 offered a good choice of quality food although the meals we chose could have been warmer. Attentive and efficient staff. Nice ambiance. Cool bar area. We would definitely go back although it was a bit confusing as to where Albert's Shed ends and Dukes 92 starts. Do they share a kitchen :) ??

Service was slow but it seems like there was only 2/3 staff waiting on so they did the best they could. Very polite and the food was lovely.

Went for a meal which I booked well in advance there was no table waiting for us at 8pm they just found the next available where the sliding doors had been opened and we were exposed to the outdoor crowd smoking which drifted onto us. The music was too laud the hole place was way to lively for us .we asked to be moved upstairs but were told all was taken basically it was a complete waste of my time booking. So we walked out and found somewhere more pleasant to eat .I was hugely disappointed by this booking and would defiantly avoid dukes 92 for a sit down meal ok though for a lads night out.

Not really happy with the woman server we had. She was really abrupt and also told us 3 times we had to leave at 3, even though it took 20 minutes for us to get drinks. I know it was busy but being friendly doesn't take any time! :)

Only complaint would be that one of the mains didn't come out with the rest of the mains and then took a further 25mins to get to the table which meant someone eating alone. This was suppose to be a special occasion (friends birthday). The waitress was very apologetic however didn't offer a discount or a free drink for their mistake when writing our orders down. Alittle disappointing. Other than that everything else was on point. We will visit again however I think we will make sure everything's on the order list.

We enjoyed our food. Service was friendly BUT where we were seated was just too noisy, We asked for the music to be turned down several times as it was impossible to chat above the noise. Unfortunately because of this we did not stay for dessert or coffee.

Absolutely great place - we will be recommending to friends and we'll now no doubt be regular visitors.

We were very impressed with the food (the prawns and the seabass!) enjoyed the cocktails in bar area afterwards and with the live music - made for a great Easter weekend!

Despite booking a table via your website for 9.30pm, we arrived t be told the kitchen was closed. I am unsure if the issue lies with the restaurant or yourselves, but this was a huge disappointment. The staff were apologetic, which was appreciated but small consolation.

Vibrant bar area with a separate restaurant section. We came for food, which was brilliant (two shared a large platter), but returned later for drinks.
Service was fantastic. Will definitely return.
