Starter and main were absolutely delicious, 10/10! All my friends agreed with this. However they also agreed that the puddings we’re a major disappointment. They were deconstructed to the point that they didn’t taste pleasant. I feel that should the deserts have a revamp that the restaurant would be the best I’ve been to in Manchester.
Food was incredible, one of the best steakhouses I've been to in a long time!
The place is a little hard to find but you should definitely try as the food is great, the servers are friendly and helpful, plus it is a light spacious restaurant, which you don’t often get. My husband had the mackerel followed by the rack of lamb, which was done to perfection, ie rare. I had the arancini which had an odd taste but very pleasant, followed by the cauliflower steak, etc and it was amazing. We would definitely go to the Alston Bar and Beef again. 👍
We arrived to celebrate a birthday. We wanted to 'Eat The Best Steak in Manchester', we certainly did that! The 3 course set menu for £21.00 is a bit disingenuous, we needed to add the pepper sauce, onion rings and the sauted spinach with mushrooms and this does significantly change the price. But a portion of each is easily enough to share between 2 people. Including drinks we spent just under £170.00 for exceptional food and great service. A must eat in Manchester for meat eating foody.
Had sea Bram from set menu. Smoked salmon starter portion very small and more apple than salmon. Sea bream from mains was delicious. Had a side of broccoli which was needed. 12.5% service charge was put on the bill automatically, which could be reduced or removed if you wished. Who's going to do this unless the meal is really rubbish. I think a 10% service is more acceptable.
Lovely meal and the set menus are great value for city centre dining
The location was nice albeit hard to find. Service was excellent. The flavour of the dishes was delicious. I was disappointed by the meagre amount of meat in the dish I selected as part of the menu deal. Sides and trimmings were exquisite but, to say it nicely, the amounts in the plate “lacked generosity”. You go to a beef place to eat meat, not to have a meek taste of it.
We celebrated our birthdays on Saturday. It was our first time in the restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. We both had the fillet which was cooked to perfection. Will definitely be coming back
They could improve the service, explaining the meats and being more mindful if we wanted any more drinks
Food was unbelievable and so was the service, we will definitely be returning
Very friendly & helpful serving staff. Great food prepared to a high standard.
The Friday menu is exceptional - amazing food, amazing value.
Only 2 other couples in when we arrived. 5 waiting staff on duty that we could see. We waited too long for the order to be taken, had to ask again for the wine after the food had been delivered and we waited 20 minutes for plates to be cleared after we’d eaten. Refused to pay the 10% service charge and no one bothered to ask why. Food was nice enough but just poor service. Disappointed.
First time at this restaurant and it was perfect. Service as it should be, friendly and attentive, food was outstanding, steaks cooked perfectly with great sides. Pudding spot on.
Look forward to visiting again soon.
Excellent service, very pleasant atmosphere, very good value and mostly good food (sadly the fish wasn't perfect), but the rest of the food was excellent, with the fillet being superb. A good restaurant for an evening at the Manchester Arena very nearby .
Pretty standard steak and chips... Don't know why they get such a high rating. Prices far too high for the quality.
Amazing beef but very pricey for the portions.
We had a booking for Sunday 20 October, but when we got to the restaurant it was closed. I did not receive any message from the restaurant to inform me that they were closed.
Hi TrondS, Please accept our sincere apologies for the emergency closure of the restaurant on Sunday 20th October. Due to the severity of the situation closing the restaurant was unavoidable. On the day, we attempted to contact every guest. 2 bookings we could not contact due to incorrect contact details. I can fully empathise with the disappointment and inconvenience caused. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this further. Kind Regards Paul General Manager
The quality of the steaks are second to none, my partner and I shared the chateaubriand which was AMAZING - highly recommend. We had booked for 8.30pm on Saturday evening and although we arrived a little late, we still had to wait for our table but we were able to get a drink at the bar in the meantime so this wasn't an issue. The atmosphere is really good and it's a nice touch that you can see the food being prepared. Definitely a place to visit, the prices are reasonable for the quality, with 2 courses and drinks we were around £75 per head.
Great service. Outstanding steaks.
From the moment my family and I entered, it was so welcoming and caring down to the smallest of details. Other than some of the chips being slightly overcooked for the main, the steaks themselves were cooked to preferential perfection and the desserts were simply amazing.
The inside is decorated very stylishly, to a point where I always say never judge a venue from the exterior. The staff were always at hand whenever you need them, but not invasive when you're eating and chatting away; very well done!
If you want to visit a steak house and experience what dining and service is all about, get yourself to here.
Amazing place! Amazing food! Amazing staff! All the staff helped me set up proposing to my girlfriend, now fiancée! They made it so special and put so much effort in! Could not have asked for any more from them!
5star service with 5star food!
We arrived and were met with smiles immediately by Sophie who also passed on recommendedations where we could go afterwards. We went for the gin experience first which was great - very informative and got some great tasters and a cocktail lesson from Martin.
Great service from Rionach who put up with our staff do and the food was honestly fantastic, and I am very picky about steak!
I would happily recommend!
Very friendly staff and very average food. Quite expensive too .
Amazing food and staff can’t wait to go back
Deal with a bottle and steak platter is brill
The food was absolutely incredible, we had the Butcher's cuts sharer, with a bottle of wine, 2 sides and 2 sauces for £50. It was very filling, and cooked to perfection. One downside is that by the time you get to the 3rd steak, it is only warm. We went not long past opening time, so there were barely any other customers there. The service was impeccable, we weren't waiting ages for refills of water or the bill to come. Lovely interior, friendly waiters, fantastic food. Come for the accessible location, stay for that bearnaise sauce! We ordered a Chocolate Tree dessert, which was excellently crafted and felt much more expensive than it's £8 price tag. Nice, clean, spacious restrooms too. Would highly recommend. 9.5/10.
This was my first time visiting Alston and I wasn’t disappointed. Nice bar area for pre dinner drinks with a fantastic choice of cocktails and variety of different branded drinks. The food was excellent, great menu with a good range of different foods. Good background music and an overall nice atmosphere with attentive service.
We visited the restaurant on Saturday the 5/10/19 and myself and my wife really enjoyed every bit of our visit from the front desk to the service was amazing. Our waitress Eryn was very good and attentive to detail with good knowledge of the food and wine. Hope to visit soon.
Everything was fantastic, especially the food 👌🏼😋
Great food at a fantastic price, service excellent, fantastic ambience - yes I will go back
Our fourth visit which was a good as ever.
The best Sunday Lunch in Manchester. Attentive, friendly staff. Amazing gin cocktails and absolutely perfect food.
Far superior to nearby Hawksmoor in every way.
Very busy Saturday night, food was worth the money and the staff were excellent very attentive . Good selection of drinks.
The speakeasy was very busy for pre dinner drinks but plenty of room at the bar.
The staff all worked hard.
It was the first time me my partner and our friends had tried the restaurant and it was lovely - food was good and there was a good choice of drinks
Service was good
Look forward to coming again
The beef was the best we’ve had in Manchester! Everybody needs to try this place..
Wonderful experience at Alston Bar and Beef. Food was delicious and Eryn and Meg were great, they made us feel very welcome! thank you
Everything was fantastic, especially the service 👌🏼
Service excellent. Starter stunning. Chips best I've ever eaten. Steak fabulous. Great dessert. Three courses for eighteen pounds, can't be beaten.
Lovely food and great service! Cocktails were amazing and would recommend to Cafe de Paris with the steak!
Worth every penny
Food and service was excellent. I just had to choose a different starter and dessert than I wanted as they had run out of my first choices.
