About Dukes 92

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.

I came here with my friend for a girly catch up on a Saturday late afternoon. The atmosphere was great and lively. The food area was slightly quieter for people to chat.
The food was delish, we shared 5 small plates between us to pick at with a bottle of wine.

I would love to come again soon especially around Christmas and new year

What a gem, the staff are very friendly and attentive and helped in any way we needed. We loved the waterfront position with very pretty views. The food was scrumptious, loved the ambience although it's quite big. Loved the tables with trees! Fab restaurant/bar.

This was our second visit. First time was for a graduation meal for our daughter over the summer and we enjoyed it so much we came back when doing the uni run in September, for our son. We had booked for 2.30pm and when we finished moving in to halls quicker than we thought, we arrived early and asked if we could have our table early. We were pleased to find this was possible and had a lovely lunch again. Delicious food and great service. The place was buzzing.

Our waitress Codie was very attentive. We had a Gluten intolerant guest with us who also suffers with some IBS issues too. Codie went out of her way to ask the chief if they could make some of the food without certain ingredients.
I’d like to extent my thanks to Codie and the Chief involved for making the evening spectacular with the service and the extra effort for my intolerant guest.
Definitely will be recommending you and will be back again.

Had the best time, lovely food drinks and company. Gutted we didn't go on the Friday as Erasure were there one of our fave bands.
Would recommend booking a table to avoid disappointment !
Our waiter was friendly and couldn't do enough for us.
The only let down the toilets could do with keeping an eye on especially when busy as loo roll was not plentiful !
As I said a great choice for a great night 😁
