    Outstanding! Best roast in Manchester. Had the chicken and the pork - both were beautiful. All the trimmings were delicious and the chipolatas side are a must. Finished off with a sticky toffee pudding - faultless. Thanks guys :)

    We always go out for Sunday lunch and we found that Station South was excellent. The food was delicious and the service was everything that one would expect. It's pretty informal place with a good vibe and at a very reasonable price. We'll be back soon!

    Usually service is amazing however on this visit I was asked if my food was ok 6 times whilst trying to eat from the same member of staff who then proceeded to stare down my fiancé selecting no whilst tipping. It led to an overall very odd dining experience and whilst I love an attentive server it just made me feel like we couldn’t relax and enjoy our lovely roasts.

    Visited for Sunday roast with my cousin. Lovely meal of roast pork. Very generous portion. Fruit crumble for desert was lovely but we had to take half home because we couldn't fit it in. Overall a great meal. Will come again.

    I am a regular at Station South but this is the first and definitely not the last time I have had the Sunday roast. I love the staff and the ambiance to Station South and I have booked a table on New Years Eve for me and my family. The roast it’s self is the best I have had, my favourite was the cauliflower cheese croquette and don’t get me started on the gravy. Just all round wholesome comfort food for you and the family.

    Great visit to Station South. Great value, honest food. Great variety of drinks and cocktails. It was early Saturday Bonfire Night weekend so there were some families in which the have the place a great local feel. Clearly a place that locals come to hang and have fun.

    Have had Sunday lunch here a few times and this time it was pretty disappointing. While I realise belly pork will have a considerable band of fat the actual amount of meat was therefore tiny, effectively one mouthful. Compared with the roast chicken which was a full breast. The veg was nice though the roast potatoes were very hard. I’d give it another try but not be rushing back based on this experience

    Station South Sunday roast - the food was excellent albeit a bit on the expensive side... Portion size was good. The roast potatoes were a little dry and the Yorkshire pud a bit on the crispy side but that's my only criticism and also down to personal taste... everything else was fab. The service was outstanding, such lovely and friendly staff.

    Attended this delightful venue to visit the art exhibition. The artwork was displayed on each of the cafe walls and alongside the stairs. My friend and I elected to order the roast chicken.....it being a Sunday. The overall plate was amazing whilst accompanied by a tasty Malbec. The desert choice was lengthy and ticked all our boxes but we decided on the apple and blueberry crumble and custard. Also delightful. The portions are plentiful, so much so part of my desert was boxed for consuming later!! With great artwork and a superb lunch it was a really enjoyable visit. With 2 mains 2 deserts 2 wine and coffee the bill was £60 ish [I didn't pay on this occasion]. On our next visit we're going for a brunch 😋 Thanks to all staff for the excellent service and ambiance. Here's to next time. Xx

    Tried the Sunday roast at Station South a few months back and it was genuinely the best roast any of us had had in a very long time. Finally managed to go again but we were all rather disappointed after the incredible first experience. I think the lesson was to go at the very beginning of the session, the first time our booking was for around midday and every single item on the plate was done to absolute perfection. This time we ate around 5pm and it was all quite lacklustre, particularly the roast potatoes which had clearly been sitting a while and were dry and mostly went uneaten. So, long story short, if you can go early in the day, it could be really amazing and well worth it, but avoid going later on, it probably won't be worth the cost. The food aside, the service was friendly and attentive. The venue is lovely, with plenty of seating outside for when the weather is good, the drink selection is good. Only issue realy is that the acoustics are awful so if it's busy, particular if there are a lot of kids, it can be very loud inside.
