Higher Ground is a bistro and bar located in Manchester city centre that focuses on seasonality within the North-West using produce sourced from local suppliers and producers.

The restaurant is open Wednesday to Saturday at dinnertime and Friday and Saturday lunchtime.

At lunch a £35pp seasonal sharing menu is offered alongside an à la carte menu. At dinner both à la carte and a seasonal sharing menu at £55pp are available.

We often hold space for walk-ins at the kitchen bar counter so pop by and have some plates and a glass of wine!

Reservations of up to ten guests are accepted. For parties of 7x guests and over, the seasonal sharing menu is served.

    Has the sharing menu which gave us several courses to share Each was really high quality, deeply flavoured and really well presented The main part could have done with being slightly larger but that was more a personal preference and the fact is was delicious The rhubarb and custard dessert was delicious

    Food and service generally of a very high standard, excellent wine list. Lighting was too bright when we arrived and the dimmed the lights about 30 mins later, overcharged us on one of the items on the menu but was quickly rectified, albeit with no apology. Would certainly return.

    Very good food (small sharing plates), however it all felt a bit rushed like they wanted us in and out asap. They served our 6 course tasting menu in just over an hour! Some of the plates and bowls were also chipped/cracked, which we told our waiter about, and he said this was normal as they don't throw away broken crockery. Our lasting impression was that the food was excellent, but the overall experience didn't make it feel special, which is a shame when you're spending that amount of money.
