Another fantastic time at Freight Island. Food is nice and very quick service. Unbeatable atmosphere ambiance and service can’t wait to return
Amazing birthday meal
For my boyfriend.
Recommend the salt and pepper wings 😍
Love love love Freight. Guaranteed good times had by all.
Stylish venue with great music. Service good. Food and cocktails good but small portions and expensive.
Great place with amazing food and a good atmosphere!
Perfect. Everything ran on time, amazing venue space. Friendly staff. Great selection of food & drinks
Nice experience, great atmosphere and relaxed vibe. Well organised and you don’t have to wait long for food. Would add some more cocktail choices to the menu. Also would be a good idea to have pics of the food on the app so you know what you are getting. Some of the food we had seemed overpriced for the portion size.
Our experience last night was absolutely fantastic. From being greeted at the entrance gates, to the high quality of food and drinks and service. 5 stars for everything. Bare in mind the weather was awful (cold, wet and rainy), the hosts were friendly and attentive and we were sat up on the DJ tables under the heater so could take our coats off. The tunes the DJ was playing were all great and we were kindly told we could have our table longer, so gladly bought another bottle of wine and more food. At the moment it’s extremely difficult to find a good place to eat and drink outside but last nights experience proved otherwise. Everything was spot on and we really appreciate the hard work and effort of all the staff there. We’ve been having to go to places like dive in the nq, where we don’t like the music, food or drinks but it’s warm and inviting. Freight island has the best of both worlds
Great experience, fast service and good armosphere
We felt safe. The QR system is a bit clunky....had to order for drinks and food separately so 4 different payments. A good buzz to the place.
Completely surpassed my expectations. Freight Island is run really well, has great service and a great atmosphere. I’ll look forward to coming again.
Fab atmosphere and service. Weatherproofed brilliantly and lots of heaters. They’ve nailed it!
Food was excellent.
Atmosphere was fantastic.
We really enjoyed and will be returning when we can find availability!
Loved our first visit. Great concept and good food and drinks..will definitely be back.
Brilliant atmosphere, gave a really cosy feeling. Food was amazing, staff are friendly.
Got to get my next reservation set.
Excellent food and vibes
Really good atmosphere, great food and great drinks. Bit on the pricy side but worth it for the atmosphere
Having not been out for a while we were looking forward to this visit. We had to wait for about 15 minutes passed our booked time while they sorted us out a table.
Drink and food service was prompt. We ordered burgers from Patty Queen. Both burger were pretty overcooked and cold when they arrived, at £9 apiece without chips I was disappointed. With the set up of Freight Island it was difficult to get a waiter/waitress to mention this to so we just ate it. Service was very good but just disappointed with food quality and prices.
Great concept, tasty food and well organised. We had a table booked, arrived slightly late, but were looked after as soon as we got there. Food was really tasty. Would definitely recommend.
What a brilliant place to eat outside. Great choice of food and drinks, energetic atmosphere and efficient table service. Highly recommended this place.
Very good overall, atmosphere was amazing. Will go again soon!
Staff were really helpful helping me amend and accommodate different people for my booking, atmosphere was amazing and service was quick & food tasty! Thank you! X
Great service. staff all quick and very attentive
Nightmare ordering system, food very overpriced for the quality. Quite a corporate vibe, however the music/DJ was quite good. Confusing table system - felt like they haven't quite nailed this as we were rushed out of our table and the place even though there were tons of spare tables and seats which were clearly not booked up (felt like we could have simply been moved elsewhere rather than rushed out)
The app to order food and drinks could do with a little work. Can’t go back to order from different places without losing everything already entered. When you click back it takes you out of the venues restaurant and bars.
Incredible food, drink and the Greenhouse was stunning!
These guys have really mastered how to make the outdoors feel like indoors. Fantastic food, some great alcohol-free drinks and really efficient online ordering. Perfect evening out even in a Manchester hailstorm.
Great atmosphere, tasty food. Slightly on the expensive side for street food but overall a great experience
Great first time here.
Could do with more cider selections at the bar.
Everything else was fantastic though.
Everything perfect apart from the bouncer being rude.
After spending all day in the city, drinking & dining outside for our anniversary, Freight Island has to be my favourite! It was warm and dry, staff were lovely, so much choice of food and drink (albeit a little pricy) BUT ordering through the app is effortless and everything is just brought to you! Great atmosphere and I can’t wait to come back soon!
Great atmosphere and great food would visit time and time again
Really impressed with the service, the food was unique and delicious, the table was spot on. Wasn’t sure what to expect so it was a real pleasure.
Thanks all at freight island.
Its pretty expensive but that's understandable considering how much has gone into the place, which has a great layout and atmosphere. It was horrible weather when we went but we felt sheltered in a booth with a personal heater. Had a 22inch goats cheese pizza to share between 6 of us and it was delicious.
Excellent atmosphere. The only real downside was the ordering process, no menus, then really long arduous process to look at each outlets offerings as you have to go into each outlet separately then each type of drink separately to see what varieties were available! Same with food!Took 30 mins to even get first drink. Not good when you only have 2 hours. Menus would be good. You can then still order online, just go directly to whatever bar/restaurant on the app- after viewing the whole menu.
Perfect from beginning to end!
The weather was awful but you had everyone inside under heaters. Staff were always around and food and drinks came out very quick!
Would 100% come back again and recommend to everyone
Fun experience and a well equipped venue. Would recommend.
Great atmosphere in the plant room, food was really quick to arrive and super tasty. Drinks were lovely, my only small wish was that there were more cocktail options but that’s just personal preference. I would definitely go back
Amazing food with v friendly staff would deffo recommend for any event
Brilliant concept. All staff really helpful and pleasant from the door staff to the servers. Drinks where fabulous, food was good can’t wait to return!
