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.

    Booking online was easy. Staff were friendly and helpful. The food ( Sunday lunch) was very good and reasonably priced. The drinks took a little while to arrive and the music was a little louder than I would have preferred, but overall very good. Recommend.

    Not a place to eat at all, food was terrible. Extremely noisy. If you're after a few drinks it's alright even still you're looking at £10 for an average cocktail full of ice.

    Nice to be back. Met up with some friends for a catch up (first time since March 2020). One pal had issues getting online but used Dukes' wifi and was fine. Online ordering was easy to do. Actually makes things a lot easier and quicker. Drinks arrived super quick, and food was very quick to the table also. I had the duck curry and it was fantastic. Portions are great and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. One pal had lots of food left over as wasn't hungry and there was no issue with packing it into food trays to take away. Having the perspex between tables makes you feel safer. However, at one point, someone ramped up the music making it very very difficult to hear each other. I can understand this at night time but I think during the day, it needs to be kept at a lower level as its a different clientele in the day. But we will certainly be back.

    We arrived quite early for our booking but they accommodated us and we were seated straight away! Staff are super friendly, we chose to order at the bar rather than on our phones which they were happy to do. Lovely drinks and the food was delicious, came out not long after ordering. The interior is beautiful too! Definitely recommend.

    The service was poor, barely got a word out of the waitress. Food wasn’t great either, barely ate one or the meals. No one asked if everything was ok with the meal etc. Wouldn’t recommend.

    To be honest it'll be the last time! Firstly the lack of service, as of course there's a QR code! Then the food was either poorly prepared.... over battered prawns, miniscule portions of anything but bread and salad on the "boards". Just not a good experience at all.

    Service was great, was nice and fast however, I would recommend ordering your food on one card. That way your guaranteed to make sure all your food comes at once. The food was lovely I got the steak and it was cooked perfectly. We was sat on a small Table outside so there wasn’t much room for the starters, main and drinks to be all on one table but the staff helped make some room.

    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.

    Dukes 92Responded on 11 October 2021

    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
