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 attended Dukes 92 on Sunday 8th September at 1.30pm, overall my experience was pleasant. The food was nice although some elements of the roast dinner was very salty of which I couldn't eat much. In relation to the service, we were seated and our drinks order was taken pretty much straight away. The wait for our drinks to arrive was around 20 minutes, which I found was not that great. Other than the wait for our drinks, everything was lovely. I would attend again.

Good food if a little pricey for the amount you get. Considering it was so quiet when we were there the service was a little slow. The decoration inside was beautiful. Overall, a couple of niggles but I’d definitely go back.

Food was really good, the service was very poor. Waited 5 minutes to be acknowledge before being seated. Then had to wait a further 20 minutes to have our food and drinks order taken. Food arrived and still no drinks on the table. Asked for sauce took another 10 minutes to arrive.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback Danielle, this is definitely not an experience we would hope for any of our customers. We would certainly like the chance to look into this further and would very much appreciate it if you could email me with what time you visited on the 31st August, Karen

Food was plentiful but at times a touch bland (BBQ ribs) but lamb kofte was nice.
Had to ask three times for tap water. Service was otherwise great.
Ambiance was amazing.
Overall really enjoyed our visit

I came here for my birthday with a total party of 14, around late lunch time, I had an amazing time, the waitresses Amber and Fai were superb and attentive.
The food was wonderful and of generous portion sizes, I had the sea bass and sweet potatoes which was really delicious!

Thank you dukes for a lovely experience

Food was good . Wine was good. The service however just wasn’t there. The waitress seemed to be having a bad day ? No smiles or politeness for anyone.

The food was incredible (I can recommend the Spiced Lamb Kofta), the service was excellent and the whole ambiance was spot on. I also loved the decor. Dukes 92 has it all - good food, good service and a great place to meet and hang out with friends. I would definitely go back .... again and again.

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.
