Love Menagerie! Just wish there were more Vegan bottomless brunch options instead of only having one meal to choose from.

Would have been helpful to know it was a hen/stag venue. Service good but not the atmosphere we were looking for!

Food was disappointing. Waitresses were really nice but the manager was rude an condescending, after we sent back a burger that was over cooked and dry.

Booked in for 3pm 12 people for a bottemless brunch. Table was not ready so there was a half an hour delay. The staff on enterance were not very welcoming, did not show us were to standing while we waited for the table. Did'nt even offer us a prossecco while we waited (considering we had already paid £195 deposit).

Had to speak to the manager for a discount. Also did not find the staff serving very friendly.

Amazing night with friends!
Our table server was amazing and really helpful.
I will admit that the chicken and waffles were difficult to get into and both were really hard. The chicken paillaird was also quite dry but everything else was amazing!
Thank you for a lovely evening- entertainment was fabulous!

This restaurant has great decor but the music, while great, is just far too loud to have a decent dinner.

Even though we enjoyed the experience I have to say that first impressions were mixed. The menu looked great on line and gave the impression of a high end restaurant but when we arrived there was more of a trendy bar feel to the Menagerie. Having said that, the service was great - our waitress was so lovely, the food was really very good and so were the drinks. We were a party of four with two children on a Sunday afternoon and the Sunday roasts went down a treat, the beef was soft and tender. It turned out to be a really pleasant meal with a warm atmosphere.

I rarely leave reviews, however this venue definitely warranted it! The only very slide downside is that it wasn’t easy to find but when we did, it was definitely worth it.

The staff were all just amazing, especially Holly who looked after us. Very kind, attentive and sociable.

We choose to have the Bottomless Brunch, and they made sure we always have a drink throughout the slot.

Food wise I had the vegan breakfast, and OMG I’ve never had such tasty sausages. The quality of the food was very high served in a humble minimalist way. Just loved it! I then went on to order French Toast again super lush. My friends ordered the non veg breakfast and they really enjoyed it too.

Oh and I loved the Diva ring light and bathtub, we had a lot of fun taking pictures!

Overall I was very impressed, us girls had a throughly enjoyable girls day out.

Thank you Menagerie!

Starters were particularly good, especially the Parmesan Beignets. Our server Holly was wonderful 😊 and the dancers and entertainment was fabulous. Mains weren't great but I was pretty full from the starters so wasn't too bothered by this. Would definitely come again

Such a sick place and would recommend drinks as they had a good variety of live performances. Drinks menu was also outstanding. But we had to eat elsewhere as it wasn't the right atmosphere for a meal.

We have just moved to Manchester, it was our first time at Menagerie and what an experience…
All staff were friendly and very accommodating, food was absolutely amazing!! Cocktails were delicious, would recommend the Girl code & Unicorn Tears 🦄. It was our Anniversary In which we was presented with a dessert plate and two shots with sparklers at the end of our meal. Everything about this place was amazing would highly recommend. Oh and of course we couldn’t leave without taking a pic with the bath. 💕
