    The service was poor our drinks were sat waiting for at least 20 minutes in sight of us on the counter and got to us 40 mins after ordering them. When the food came out it was warm about to go cold. No one asked if our food was okay and came to check up on us Incase we needed anything. We had finished and moved our plates to the end of the table which never got cleared even when asking for the bill. I have been here before many a times and have always loved it I brought my mum for a birthday surprise and was very very disappointed I was not happy at all with the service provided and for £40 it was definitely not worth it wt all.

    We were surprised to see how much the menu had changed/reduced since our previous visit …. Which in all fairness was a while ago but I think that along with the initial fact our booked table had been given away to someone else meant things didn’t start off too well. A number of items were unavailable on what was already a very small menu. We asked if we could have scrambled eggs for the children, but due to them not having the equipment to cook scrambled eggs they couldn’t do it ….. made no sense to me but we didn’t mind and asked for a fried egg with no yolk …. This, after some in house discussion with the chef was approved. However the resulting fried egg was horrendous. Surely removing the yolk before cooking it should have been relatively straight forward. We then received a few drinks which were not ours, followed by two meals which were not either. The gentleman serving us did everything I think he could to try and improve the experience we were encountering but all in all we left rather disappointed. Without asking, the gentleman knocked off a couple of the meals we were due to pay for which was a lovely gesture but unfortunately doesn’t improve the overall experience we had. This was one of our favourites a few years back but it’s unlikely we’d return in the future. :(

    Waited an hour for food All of our food was stone cold, got told thsi was because they have to clean the stove for a gluten free order so it takes longer but being gluten free doesn’t mean I should pay for all my food to be cold and dry?? Was offered a free drink which they then tried to charge me for on the bill Manager didn’t come out and apologise, even though it was my birthday and everything kept going wrong. Would not go back or recommend to anyone unless you enjoy waiting an hour for brunch and eating it cold.

    way too slow. we were about to leave an hour after ordering food, just as the two dishes arrived. food was good when it eventually arrived but for any food to be worth waiting an hour for, it would have to be a lot better or better value than this.

    Very disappointed with the food quality and portions. They charged us a service charge of £3; we were only two... If the customer is happy he will give a tip at the end. The door was always open during our visit, which made the room cold and not a pleasant experience. We used to love this place, great food, fantastic service, everything that a customer values. However, this new appearance has destroyed the old home sweet home.

    We have eaten here on many occasions before and always been very happy. This time however, we felt the service, food and value for money was poor. We got seated right on tye edge of a doorway where the staff were constantly passing through with dirty crockery and we felt in the way. The service was very hurried & when served our drinks my husband didn't receive any milk, sugar or teaspoon with his pot of tea. The food menu had been massively reduced, since our last visit and the choice was poor. We then got charged a service fee on our bill, which wasn't negotiable and really wasn't worth paying. Very disappointed with our visit. :-(

    Having visited Home Sweet Home before, I wanted to return whilst in Manchester with my friend. We were not disappointed...staff were super-friendly and couldn't have been more helpful in explaining the gf options to my friend (coeliac). The food was both beautiful and delicious and we left very full and very happy.

    Food was really nice!! And service was welcoming at first by all members of staff. Unfortunately cocktails were below average and overpriced for what they are. After our plates were cleared, the restaurant at was quieter yet service disappeared! No one returned to our table for 45mins, we were chatting the whole time and would have enjoyed another drink. On our way out of the restaurant we had to ask to pay our bill even after that long period of time.

    The menu and interior has changed since we last came here which initially worried me but the food was just as good as ever. Only one vegan/ veggie option on the lunch menu which wasn’t really my thing so I had a couple of sides instead. The rest of my family are meaters and were loving the lunch menu. My son’s chicky dinner went down a treat with everyone. The only gutting thing was - we were all too full up for one of the amazing looking doughnuts!

    If you want amazing pancakes come here. The pancakes are always amazing. Since this is is the first time being back after lockdown, they have changed the size of the pancakes, which makes it more manageable to eat. The sugar work on the banana's worked really well too. Very accommodating to toddlers too (if they behave). The staff are so friendly too. Thank you Home sweet home.
