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.

    One of the places I absolutely love going to in Manchester is Dukes 92. The food is lovely, the surrounding area is beautiful by the water and the ambiance is great however, when we arrived, we were greeted by the most miserable greeter at the front desk, we were then shown to our table again she had a face like thunder. It wasn’t just me who noticed this. My guest also noticed that she looked like she didn’t want to be there. Before we left we went to the toilet and saw her clothes shopping on the front desk computer so she was clearly bored. Saying that, the person who took our order, served the food and brought the bill was lovely. The food was lovely and we were eating within 15 mins of being seated. Minus the greeter, our experience was great for a nice Sunday lunch. It won’t stop me from coming to Dukes again as I do love coming here.

    We came to celebrate a 40th birthday, one of our party is celiac but we was told by the waitress there wasn’t a Gluten free menu and that the items were listed on the normal menu, when we viewed online we found a superset menu with much more choice than what we was offered.

    Awful experience yesterday for my partners birthday (Friday lunchtime). The customer service from start to finish was horrendous. It wasn’t even busy and we weren’t asked how our food was whether we needed anything else, we weren’t asked whether we needed another drink. The waitress’ stood on their phones ignoring myself and other customers which resulted in people having to go up to the girls requesting bills, food and drinks. Awful experience and I won’t be returning again. Shame as I have been before and had good experiences but this was some of the worst quality customer service I have ever had.

    Really enjoyed the chips and gravy with cheese - like the Canadian “poutine”. Disappointed at the lack of decent beer - only one proper ale and that was off!

    To be brought to your table and not told that pizza's are unavailable. We all decide to get pizza and then get told its not an option. No apology and nothing given as a gesture of goodwill. Waitress outside at one point stroking a cat and no sight of hands being washed. Disgraceful will not be returning.

    Booked Dukes92 to catch up with friend for Twixmas get together. As always the staff at Dukes92 were incredibly friendly and helpful. Whilst the restaurant was not busy the ambiance was good. We both chose burgers which were as described. Service was efficient and staff attentive but not intrusive. Well done Dukes92 on maintaining excellent service in these challenging times.
