The cake was fabulous. Loads of choice and huge slices. The service was poor. It’s like they didn’t have enough staff/space to complete drinks orders. Our cake cake straight away and we waited at least 20 minutes for the drinks after (cup of tea and lemonade!). Noticed others around us were in the same boat.

As always delicious food, relaxed surroundings and pleasant service. One of the few places I regularly bother to travel half an hour to enjoy their breakfast. Texas skillet and steak and hash particularly recommended by me 😁

So me being the idiot that I am booked to go to the Northern Quarter but ended up at the one on Deansgate. However, I’ve been to both before and I have to say that my experiences at them have been nothing but amazing. The food is delicious and there is so much to choose from. The atmosphere is relaxed and it’s so easy to have a nice catch up with friends. The staff are friendly and helpful without being overeager. Can’t wait to come back again and hopefully, I’ll come to the right one next time.

I love this place. The food drinks atmosphere and staff are all brilliant.
The only thing that I don’t like and is probably me and my ocd but the water jug and water glasses don’t always look the cleanest. I wipe my glass with a napkin but like I said probably just me.
Overall great place. Food is brilliant and the bloody Mary’s are the best I’ve ever tried.

I've been coming to Home Sweet Home for a long time! Being a sugar fiend, the cake counter is always the highlight for me! They are more than generous with their portions, and the flavours are varied every day, and I'm doing my best to get through all of them!
I can also say their breakfasts, and savoury food is lovely! The chicken and waffles are fantastic, as well as their pancakes, and fry up.
I docked a star on service, because we found ourselves waiting quite a while for the cocktails we ordered, but they were delicious, especially the Ultraviolet. I'd definitely recommend this place!

Awful experience. Choice of gluten free was poor and expensive for what we received. Felt like I was a nuisance and was asked if I was actually allergic or if it was a lifestyle choice. I have celiac disease. The music was like an orchestra tuning up and I couldn’t wait to leave.

I finally decided to take my family here after coming in so many times by myself. The food was good, it did take 30 mins for the order to be taken and then another 40 mins for the food to arrive. The waitresses were lovely though. The noise was a bit much, the music was too loud, we couldn't really talk to each other and the people sat behind us were loud but it was mostly the kids and you can't stop them so it was fine with me.

Food lovely and cute space but service was so so slow. The guy who seemed to be running the place looked mildly annoyed when ever we asked for food/drinks etc. We were kind of hidden away so that could be why they took so long to take and bring our order but the place wasn’t busy and the guy’s attitude made us feel like we were an inconvenience.

Booked on a Sunday for 11.45 brunch, just as well as it was really busy, but people seemed willing to wait 20-30mins for a table, so must be good.
Didn’t get seated until 12 and then we just seemed to spend a lot of time waiting - for order to be taken and then 30 mins for food to arrive.
I chose full breakfast - great selection of food on the plate but not very hot. Disappointing.

The food was amazing! Went for breakfast and we had butter chicken waffles, pancakes and a big breakfast. Cant fault food at all. Only thing that was slightly annoying was the random loud Hoover noise coming from upstairs but it only lasted 10 mins. Would defo go back and would recommend you book in advance so not to disappoint. Defo go for the breakfasts.

It was disappointing. I have had a good experience if Home Sweet Home but this one was stressful. We booked a table as we know how busy it can be especially at lunch time. We had 3 children with so knew it wouldn't be ideal having to wait around. When we arrived our table was still occupied. We were left to wait over 30mins for our table with no offer of a drink or nibbles. The children were obviously getting frustrated by that point so we got them some snacks. We were then told our table shouldn't be long, the people on the tabke knew we were waiting. We were still left to wait until we took it in to our own hands and politely explained the situation to the people on our table who had long paid their bill and were just sat chatting.
We were then finally seated and offered a drink each on the house but when the bill came the drinks were all charged to us. All places have an off day but this time it was poorly managed.

I'm so sorry that this happened to you on Sunday. I completely agree and can only apologise that you had to wait a while for your table. After offering the children some nibbles, I hope they felt a little better until you was sat. I can also assure you that your first round of drinks were removed from the bill by myself after taking your order. Your friends said they had a lovely time when leaving so I hope I rectified everything for you and I'm glad your party enjoyed the rest of their visit.

The food and drinks in this place are great but the service was pretty off this time. We had booked a table but it wasn't ready when we arrived. Then is took over 15mins for anyone to come over and take our drinks order. The drinks arrived and then we tried to order food but we were told the manager needed to come and speak to us because one of the group had dietary requirements. 15mins later there was still no sign of the manager so we had to go and find him ourselves. I appreciate Sat night is busy but it shouldn't have taken over 40mins just to place an order.

My partner and I booked here as we had heard quite good things about it, however we were extremely dissatisfied. We were hurried to our seats and immediately rushed to order. Where we were sat was extremely cold and when we asked if there was any way that the area could be warmed up, they dismissed us. The staff were very unapproachable and unprofessional therefore we weren’t comfortable enough to query about anything. Especially when the food came it was over cooked and greasy. Due to this we had to sit in discomfort throughout our entire meal. No staff members came to check on us or the meals once we had received them or even throughout the course of our stay in the restaurant. Everything we had asked the waiters for, e.g. any maple syrup, they made it seem like the simple tasks were difficult chores and were quite rude about it. When we asked for the bill, the waitress rudely threw the paper on the table and just walked off. Once we placed the money ready to be collected she had walked past multiple times without collecting it and dismissed that we were ready to leave. We will not be returning unless major changes happen.

Visited HSH before and really enjoyed it. I chose a different dish on this occasion (eggs cali) which was a mistake as it was doused in sauce - not a positive unfortunately. I'd recommend to request less sauce or on the side.

A friend recommended the restaurant to me and said the burgers are worth giving a go. They weren't wrong. Probably the best burger I've ever had - melt in your mouth stuff. The Chicken in a Basket was very good too and the homemade gravy is delicious. Go on, surprise yourself.
