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.

Unfortunately, the service was slow and the food that arrived was not exactly what was ordered. The fault was corrected, though, and the food was actually quite nice. It was so noisy in the restaurant that we struggled to hear each other talk, in spite of sitting side by side. On the plus side, the atmosphere was very happy.

The food was really nice and good for value money but the service was quite bad. I cant remember her name but she was a young caucasian girl with black hair and she had a bad attitude, she seemed like she didnt enjoy her job and she didnt want to be working. She wasnt attentive and was pretty much rude too me and all my friends.

We were celebrating graduation as a party of six. The food was very delicious and the booth very comfortable. It was quite busy with a great atmosphere. The wine we had was also very good. This was the second time we have been to Duke 92 and would definitely go again. Thank you to all the staff.

I would recommend Dukes although not when the weather is nice as it gets incredibly busy with waiting over 30mins for drinks which where never received and removed from the bill, also water was never received which was ordered upon arrival and asked for numerous times. I can not fault the food although staters and mains where brought out at the same time, yes small plates my not be starters but we advised our waitress they were starters when we ordered. The waitresses seemed confused as to why we wanted them separately when they where brought out.

We have been previously when the weather was slightly more British and wet, the service was far better. I feel this is a restaurant which struggles to cope under pressure

Good food and service until glass in a drink cut one of the dinners mouth in the party. Handled well by the manager once informed but lack of understanding of the seriousness of one of the servers, who felt it was because they were busy. Ruined the experience .

Lovely food and good service but very loud music constantly as it’s a popular bar so it was quite hard to talk unless you shouted. I would recommend
It for the food and service.

Pleasant evening with friends, drank on the patio then dined inside, lovely experience, would possibly consider to be only slightly overpriced for some menu and drink items however.

Where to start?

This was supposed to be a relaxed evening to catch up with friends. Unfortunately a sunny Friday at Dukes is not the place to go! The food was great and the staff were doing their best but it was crazy busy and just full of very drunk people falling over themselves, dropping drinks and shouting at bouncers. I’d booked a table thankfully and Ethan, our waiter did a great job of looking after us. He made sure we got drinks when we needed and that we were happy. Service was slow due to how busy it was. I’d definitely go back, we had the ‘motherboard’ sharing board which was epic and really good value but I’d have to make sure it wasn’t going to be as busy next time.
