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.
There wasn’t much measures in place for corona virus. Just some artificial cares to get by. Our table was dirty and small for dinning, food badly presented, wine glasses were dripping wet with wines in. Cutleries were just placed on our dirty table without any packaging. Poor ventilation and very loud music. I didn’t feel safe and wont go there specially during the pandemic.
Great meal, amazing service and fantastic interior and vibe.
Amazing food and service, will definitely be back.
Excellent service. Food was amazing. Staff really nice and friendly and with 50% off even better. Will be going back again soon. ❤️
Amazing food, amazing service as always vibe was a little different than usual but that’s due to covid 19
Great service lovely food and atmosphere great price as 50% off the bill park was good
Always good time music could be louder but over all lovely they need calamari on the menu again too
Dukes is a great place to visit always friendly staff and tentative to your needs, they do really look after you at this challenging time. Everyone just needs to remember to play there part and keep your distance we all want to get back to normality
My favourite place to be on a Sunday afternoon, food always good!
I had a good experience the food was really well made and the ambiance was fantastic however when we arrived it would be helpful to have someone who to see the people who are booked in through as we had to queue up for 15 min just to find out that we did not need to queue up that part wasn’t impressive apart from this everything els was good
First time: All of the staff, including the security were really friendly and helpful.
The food was lovely but very small table, table size is good for drinks but not for full meals. Ordered the steak and asked for medium rare and it came well done. It tasted great so I didn't return it but it is something they should improve one.
Drinks were nice, little things were missed such as no branded or at least a nice glass for the Carlsberg. It came in a basic square type glass and no stirrer/straw with the aperol spritz and it needed mixing.
Music was great! Great vibe overall just a few things missing but still had a great evening.
It was really good all round! Obviously it’s a reduced menu right now but it had good staples and they’re able to keep up with orders easily. It was all piping hot and really nice. The only thing is that I think it was perhaps too busy considering we went back into lockdown and people weren’t really being careful, but that’s of course not the staffs fault. They did everything they could to make sure things were safe.
Food was good and affordable, cocktails a bit pricey but overall enjoyed my time at dukes 92.
I had a really good experience going to dukes the service was excellent I have no faults to say.
Inside I couldn’t hear my friend very much.. might wanna tone down the music
Lovely food and excellent service off a young lady very nice place definitely worth a visit
Food was lovely as always, Ally was attentive and efficient, will be returning soon
Lovely place great food will definitely come back again!
Great for gluten free. Would definately recommend.
Perhaps a little too packed considering Covid regulations. It’s a good job we booked a table and didn’t just show up for drinks. Great atmosphere and service though on the whole.
Staff couldn’t cope with how busy it was. No social distancing in place. Wine glasses were dirty and took over 10 mins to get some new ones. Whole place was filthy and tables weren’t being cleaned between people sitting down
The staff was vet friendly. However, the service was extremely slow for drinks. But the ambiance was very nice.
Very lively atmosphere, the gentleman who welcomed us at the que was very energetic and kind however my only issue was one of the female waitresses seemed very displeased to help us when we had a question about how to use the app, however, she didn’t ruin the evening for us as there were multiple other waitresses who were very helpful and kind in explaining how to use the app when making changes to our order.
Great food, polite and helpful staff. Explained and handled all safety and covid related information well. Happily moved us outside in the sunshine. The ordering app was very simple to use too
Great Food and Service once again. Dukes92 is one of the most consistent restaurants in Manchester City Centre.
Lunch to celebrate the impending birth of my besties first child. Absolutely wonderful afternoon, made all the more special by great service from a wonderful team of staff!
The young lady who served us was excellent, very friendly and helpful
Although the food was nice I feel it was quite overpriced for what it was, My Husband had the 8oz sirloin and said he'd tasted better for a fraction of the £18 Dukes charges.
Very nice decor and amazing staff will definitely recommend this place to others
Lovely evening to celebrate a big birthday. Despite the difficulties of Covid19, Dukes managed the situation really well. We felt safe with all the precautions but also with a sense of normality to be back out for dinner. A wonderful evening.
Great food, my Sunday lunch was fab.
Was lovely to be back & we felt very safe in your response to Covid 19 adjustments.
Well done & thank you my friends & I will most definitely be back soon.
Chicken Sunday Roast I think this is Dukes92 best meal; shame its only on Sundays!!
I had a really nice meal in here on Saturday night. The menu was limited but the food was to the same high standards as always. It’s seemed busy and the social distancing measures in place made me feel safe. The staff were lovely and service time was reasonable for a busy Saturday night.
Considering the current situation, the restaurant had a great atmosphere and people were well behaved and enjoying themselves! Food was amazing, no complaints here!
Lovely menu with a varied choice and the food was good, steak on steak sandwich a bit tough but all other food excellent
Varied drinks menu and thoroughly enjoyable setting
Lange outdoor area and upstairs balcony area to sit out
First venture into Manchester after lockdown. Very impressed with the planning and organization. Just lacked the vibrant rocking atmosphere, but understandable given the restrictions on numbers etc. Will definitely be back soon.
Like always , Great service , food and ambiance 👍
Music was so loud it was hard to speak at time’s
But it created a good atmosphere later into the night
I love taking new colleagues to Dukes92 it’s impressive space, great good, and excellent staff.
First visit and would go again, tasty food at a good price
Staff were very helpful explaining the app system for ordering food and drinks.
Food very good and reasonably priced.
