THE APPEAL OF DAMON RUNYON, the New York storyteller, newspaperman and sportswriter came from his mastery, but also invention, of 1920s American slang – a mixture of the ‘louche and the lugubrious’ according to the New Yorker magazine. He would go to Lindy’s, an all-night Jewish deli on Broadway that became Mindy’s in his stories, and listen.
“One evening I am sitting in Mindy’s restaurant putting on the gefilte fish, which is a dish I am very fond of, when in come three parties from Brooklyn – Harry the Horse, Little Isadore and Spanish John.”
Runyon married a down-on-her-luck Spanish countess from Madrid, 26 years his younger, who turned out to be an up-on-her-heels Mexican dancer from Tampico. When he died his ashes were taken up in a plane and sprinkled all over New York.

The staff were some of the best staff I have ever had the pleasure of. Both the restaurant and hotel staff were fabulous and so helpful. The food was wonderful, drinks lovely. My only criticism and the only reason I wouldn’t return to the restaurant is that the music is just far too loud for me. Not bad but just too loud, couldn’t hear myself think and sadly it spoilt what was otherwise fabulous.

Bottomless brunch was great but the advertised "free-flowing food" is a little deceptive. You can only pick 3 items off the menu so not "Bottomless" as you are led to believe. Drinks are free-flowing though which is great value for money.

Be careful with breakfast. When the food finally arrived it was standard fair. However due to the new COVID guidelines this is now table service (which is fine) but our order was lost and we had to remind staff twice that we hadn't had food. It arrived 40 minutes after we ordered it and the plate I had been given was the plate that had been sat on the Pass for 25 minutes so had to be sent back as eggs were like bullets.

I would gladly give them another chance as the staff were great.

Myself and my partner visited here mid day and really enjoyed it.
The bottomless brunch was good value for money.
The service could have bene better however as we didn't have that many drinks as I usually would get at other bottomless brunches I've been too.
Aside from that, the food was great and social distancing measures were met.

There were two tables including ourselves having the bottomless brunch on Saturday - the food we received seemed pre prepared - poached eggs were over cooked and hard, and pancakes seemed to have been microwaved as hard at the edges. Only little pointers, but overall the value for money was incredible. Would be good if a cocktail option was offered in the drinks menu alongside Prosecco and wine. Would suggest to visit as there are about 10 food options to choose from!

Booked as a little birthday celebration and the offer we had booked gave us £40 vouchers to use at the hotel, so we booked a bottomless brunch which is £25pp..... and used these vouchers towards that, so in essence only cost us £10.
Wow!!!!
Such good value and amazing quality - cannot fault it!!
Our waitress was Sue and she was quite frankly, bloody lovely!!!
She looked after us from the moment we walked in and was warm and welcoming, she fully explained the process to us and was so attentive that we never had to ask for any food or drink.... she was aware when we had finished our drinks and came and refreshed them without us needing to ask, plates were cleared promptly and food orders taken.
We didn’t feel rushed or ignored and I honestly couldn’t recommend this enough!!
Rooms are beautiful and our stay was thoroughly enjoyable and I would definitely return and stay here again!

The music was far too loud. The food was ok but expensive for what you get. Great service with happy staff but paying a £9 service charge on a £79 (we had lamb which just came with corn, fries, a burger and fries , 2 desserts and a bottle of wine) seems excessive especially as it's already added to the bill and not by choice. By far not an a la carte dining experience as we were expecting which is a shame as we loved the hotel.

Was in Manchester for the evening and came across this restaurant.

The venue itself is lovely, you can tell it’s new but but the layout is great and gave a great ambience. They had a DJ on and he played great music at an all important perfect sound level where you could still chat without having to shout at each other - this is rare these days

All the staff were very attentive and helpful. Shout out to Carla our server who was just lovely, polite and welcoming and nothing was an issue

Food was delicious, and well portioned. We had the chicken parfait and waffle to share as a starter and I had the butterfly chicken which was cooked to perfection and my partner had the burger.

We even ended up having a dessert which we never do.

Overall a great find and would highly recommend
