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.

Okay atmosphere. Could have been more staff available as couldn't use the app. Food was disappointing but okay value.
Had a wonderful visit fantastic staff felt really safe and secure with Covid requirements. Well run venue and a lovely glass of fizz for our anniversary. Wonderful touch! 🙂🍾❤
First place I’ve been since lockdown and was really lovely, the outside area is large and has a great atmosphere. The service was great and they had outdoor heaters so it wasn’t too cold, will defo be back again!
Food was very poor and we were sat amongst a large group of people who had been drinking all day. Staff were excellent
The food was delicious and well priced, really nice vibe about the place
They seat everyone in front of me when it came to be they were literally walking pass me like I’m was invisible then a lady came to seat me down without saying anything so I was there waiting for a waitress to come take our order no knowing we have to order on the phone we only found out after we left with eating or drinking that you order on the phone
In these difficult times the service was fantastic has we couldn't use the app. Service was quick, friendly and the staff were helpful catering for a gluten free meal. I would definitely recommend this venue to friends and family and will certainly be visiting again after lockdown.
Lovely staff, missed the live music though (Covid restrictions 😩)
Under the circumstances had a lovely evening. Very nice food. Friendly helpful staff.
Enjoyed it very much
Food portions huge! Wasn’t clear which door to enter
Good service, people are very friendly. An excellent place to share with friends :)
Absolutely amazing! Great value for money and the bar staff were lovely and made sure it all went ahead as planned with the surprise birthday cake!
10/10 would definitely recommend.
Food was lovely staff were friendly and helpful would recommend 🙂
Gorgeous Sunday dinner. Would definitely recommend
food was good service was fantastic will be dining again there very soon.
The food was really nice and the wait wasn’t to long over all satisfied with the kitchen- however the FOH staff seem to be weary unhappy abrupt and come across rude at the time no one was interested when we was sat at the dirty table when pointed and asked one of the staff if we can have cloth to wipe rudely responded “in a sec busy”
Lady that brought our food out make unhappy noise as we still had plates from starters on the table and she had to clean up first even knowing we helped her cleaned the plates so she could put food down no thank you was given from her then looked down rolled her eyes up and said I get you clean cutely then.
Not satisfied with the service at all I don’t know if they just unhappy at work or every o e just seen to not feel like been at work that day.
We love it! I can’t believe it’s the first time we’ve been. We enjoyed the food and the ambiance especially. I’m recommending it to friends and will definitely be back!
The sunday roast for delicious. The chocolate volcano was overcooked so no melting middle. The service was slow to clear the plates on our tiny table. Didnt help that we had a big ice bucket for the prosecco taking up a lot of the table.
Our food was great value for money, one of the best sunday roast's I've had. Really good social distancing measures in place. Will definitely return!
Best Sunday roast I’ve had in Manchester! Will definitely be back
Brilliant service over all we had a great experience never been before so will definitely be back thank you!!
Whilst sat ag the table for drinks we had a great time, it was actually getting up to leave. One of your waiting staff were extremely and unnecessarily rude to 2 separate members of the party, both within 1 minute of each other.
It was the same member of staff both time and quite frankly was the most arrogant, rude & horrible person myself & the others have ever met.
This man is the reason we would never go again, we spent £150 on the most beautiful cocktails all for a man with no class and no customer service to ruin it for everyone!
Great exprience. Unfortunately didn't get a chance to try the food.
Everything about the meal was nice! However the atmosphere wasn't the best - no music etc
Vary good service vary freindly staff
Very stylish restaurant with great wine options.
Absolutely no maintaining of covid guidelines by staff. Extremely disappointed after reading all the restrictions on the website. A group of 6 men clearly not from same household none of whom wore face coverings at any time and were entered by staff and not challenged once. Extremely disappointed obvious why covid cases are so high in Manchester.
Love Dukes! Friendly atmosphere, sophisticated the drinks are nice!!
Great meal recently at dukes 92! Fantastic service from our waiter! Felt very safe with all the measures in place!
Always great service and great food. The waitress was really attentive.
Very safe setting, food and service was excellent will definitely be back
Sunday Roast= to die for
Firstly I know we are in a pandemic... BUT I don’t feel the level of service should be compromised! I am in the retail industry and know it’s a challenging time! We walked in and after the website on dukes said no mask needed I didn’t take 1, then told we needed 1 when we got there. Not a problem and they provided one. We was then seated, the waiter didn’t explain the only way to order was through scanning a code! The actual picture said if you prefer to limit your contact use this! It however didn’t say we had to use it so then we sat waiting for bar staff to come and take our order. This didn’t happen. After 15 minutes I decided to ring the restaurant as I couldn’t get the attention of any staff members nor could you goto the bar! When we finally got the attention of a member of staff he explained the qr code! Then we ordered starters and a drink, the drink I wanted (orange and lemonade) wasn’t an option! So I was further frustrated! I ordered water (free) and thought I’ll ask for the drink when he brings the stater, nope, he then said order lemonade and put a note on to add fresh orange! THERE WASNT A SECTION TO ADD A NOTE! He also brought out our starter, we had no cutlery or napkins! I could go in but I’ve rambled enough! Won’t be hurrying back!
First time here and not disappointed, will definitely be returning.
Lovely restaurant staff. However, the bouncer at the door was intimidating rude and unwelcoming, that means work.
Brilliant as per! Really looked after my bestie who had her month old baby with her. Able to breastfeed at the table which is as it should be. Thanks Dukes 92!
had the ribeye steak which was cooked perfectly!! all our meals and drinks were spot on
Cold food and dirty wine glass. You need to do better especially with current covid regulations
Great Roast Beef Sunday Lunch, thick slices and nicely rare!
