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.

Fab food, really nice setting and interior. The outside area is great, we sat outside there for drinks after our meal, they have heaters outside. The staff were good and the service was quick.

Always a good time in Dukes, the atmosphere is always a vibe whilst still being sure to socially distance which makes you feel safe about going there

We are Dukes regulars but this is our first visit since the pandemic struck. On arrival we were impressed with the hand sanitizer station and one way system in operation with arrows on the floor guiding you to your table. We were greeted by a member of staff who explained the new protocols clearly, which included all orders being taken at your table for both food and drinks and they then showed us to our table. The tables have obviously been spaced out to aid social distancing and perspex panels have been erected between the booth seating areas to further aid social distancing - full marks.
The staff were attentive and visited our table regularly to ask if we needed more drinks etc. Our food arrived (which was excellent) in good time and was served piping hot.
When we were ready to leave we settled the bill (card only) and the prices were reasonable for a city centre eatery with a v-nice ambience like Dukes. The staff on duty were very helpful and pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
We'll definitely be back...

Our table was booked for 8:15 and no one came to take our drinks order. I went to the front of house about 8:45 and they finally sent someone over but we didn’t receive our drinks until 9:00. The food was amaze and atmosphere but this let the experience down.

Always eat at dukes, highly recommend the chicken wings, nicest I have ever had. Not much to choose from at the minute. Staff are friendly. Only issue is if you get a seat near the entrance you freeze to death with the breeze.

Awful customer service- completely ignored for the majority of our visit and it took nearly 3 hours for us to have a three course meal. Had to wait 45 mins to simply pay the bill and nearly 2 hours for our plates to just be moved from the table

Our first visit to Dukes 92 and under the circumstances of COVID we had a good evening. The food was amazing, full of flavour and service was quick. We were unfortunately sat near the entrance doors which was draughty with people coming and going.

Fantastic food, excellent offer with the EOTHO scheme in place. Lovely decor and ambience, it’s a long time since I’ve been inside! My only gripe is that ordering through the app seemed to mean that the table wasn’t automatically cleared for some reason. Nothing major, soon sorted. Will be back soon!

Under the current circumstances the overall experience was outstanding. The door staff were excellent making sure people queuing adhered to distancing down to our server whom was really attentive. We were an older group the youngest being 49 up to 65 and we had a blast people watching the younger generation also having a banging time . Loved it 💙
