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.

    The food was delicious, the table service by the waitresses was outstanding, they went above and beyond. The only disappointment was the bar service, it was very poor, on a number of occasions we we're ignored, we would stand patiently to be served and be acknowledged by the bar tended and he would continue to serve people who had clearly arrived at the bar after ourselves. This was disappointing and unfortunate. The bar tender was extremely rude and had poor customer service. Overall we would return with the hope this was just a one off experience.

    Enjoyed a nice lunch with a total of 6 people. Food was good and service was friendly and relatively quick in most cases. Only gripe was that we were only able to book a table outside, however there seemed to be plenty of tables available inside.

    Dukes 92Responded 7 days ago

    Hi Sally, Please could you let me know the issues with the parking? All parking is complimentary for our customers and is available both in our car park and on street, All you need to do is type in your vehicle registration when you enter, on the iPad stand next to the entrance. Re Menu and Drinks, ordering is through the app or at the bar so apologies for the miscommunication, there should have been a gold frame on your table explaining everything. Thanks

Service was good , waiters and waitresses very pleasant and where very good and made me feel comfortable with my nut allergy , catered to me and made sure I could have what I wanted and provided me with an allergen menu which is very helpful.

    The food was very delicious, we had the duck. But i had left a message with the restaurant that it was my 30th birthday meal. So obviously just want a nice table outside. We were seated smack in the middle of all the tables, there were drunken louts pulling all the tables n chairs together to make 1 big pile of idiot, there was no space they kept pushing past our table because there one big table had encroached around us, i got there bums in my face every few seconds and to top it off if you order on the app everything comes together which no-one said to us, so our desert with ice cream came at the same time as our food so by the time we got to the the ice cream was a puddle! It was all around aweful experience. But hats off to the chef!

    Remember if your ordering from the table via the app to just order starters first otherwise everything will come Out together (mains) We had to do this because no waiter/waitress bothered to come and take our order
