Dukes 92 was originally a stable block for the horses delivering foods off barges to the Merchants warehouse opposite. From these humble begininngs the building now houses Manchester's original bar and grill which has been refurbished and extended three times since its opening in 1991 the space today is informal and airy with the buildings heritage being reflected in a subtle blend of antique furniture and modern fixed seating.
With its most recent refurbishment Dukes can now properly call itself a venue with two bars, three private events spaces, a grill restaurant, excellent smoking facilities, canalside terrace and balcony overlooking the canal basin. Dukes continued appeal relies on its ability to transform from a relaxed, family friendly environment by day to a vibrant and stylish bar and grill by night.
The space has been extended and refurbished since its opening in 1991 and inside its interior combines contemporary features and its trademark antique furniture.

    The food was fantastic ( chilli beef and tempura tenderstem broccoli) apart from the slightly undercooked tomato pizza bread. The service from all staff was excellent and our waiter, Stan, was absolutely lovely. He was efficient, attentive, helpful, polite and pristine.

    We had a table booked at 4.30pm we arrived slightly earlier and opted for a table outside, we went to the bar and we ordered starters mains drinks and kids meals around 4.20.. at no point we’re we told that they would bring everything all together, spicy chicken wings with a cold roast dinner doesn’t go well! After an hour of waiting I went to see where our meals were to be told that the chef is busy, who’d have thought it would have been busy on Father’s Day? Our food arrived at 5.35 an hour and 15 minutes later.. my steak was cold by the time if eaten my started and my husbands gravy had congealed after eaten his wings… at the price of the meal I exepevt a lot more, the service was terrible and food was cold, wouldn’t return

    We loved the food and service but the ambience is not brilliant. We would have stayed longer if there was music outside of something inside. We left and went to a competitor to end our day.

    Went for a birthday meal, the food is average as it is more a drinking place. The waiter came very fast with each step and it didn't leave you to think or have time to relax. When the waiter did come over he never topped up our glasses and kept trying to take our plates away when we were pausing from eating as we were talking. The food is a good amount of money for what you get as the portion sizes are big. I said I would recommend Dukes 92 to a friend for drinks

    Struggled with the wifi so ordering took quite some time. No cocktails or pizza was available to order. Music was too loud to be able to have a conversation at 7.30pm, the loud slamming of glass bottles continuously was not relaxing either. No cutlery or napkins were provided with our meal.

    Lovely setting. Amazing food. The service was good apart from the fact that 3 of our plates were cleared when one if our party were still eating. I find that extremely rude as it made her feel like she had to rush.

    Good food and staff were friendly. Busy but to be expected for a Saturday lunch time. Drinks orders were slow and staff apologised due to how busy it was. However, did expect a better system in place to ensure waiting times were minimised.

    The service wasn’t great at all, for example we ordered a bottle of Prosecco and they put it on the table and walked away without opening it. Then our food came and they put it down and didn’t come back with any cutlery, then there was nobody to be seen walking around to ask for some. The food was ok, but I don’t think we’ll be visiting again mainly due to the very poor service.

    Here for lunch for daughters 18th birthday . Very busy , it was the bank holiday weekend ! Stan ( our waiter) was very good, he was very busy , I think they were short staffed , but he was very good and asked if we were here for a special occasion and then unprompted arranged for a chocolate brownie / ice cream with candle to be brought to table . Food was good, not quite warm enough , probably had been sat on the pass for a few minutes waiting to come out ( probably due to staffing levels) . Overall it was good .

    Food - Chicken wings were plentiful but overcooked and dry. Chicken burger was dry and bland. Fish and chips was good. Usually food good, which is why we come back, but definitely a miss today. Atmosphere was relaxed and informal. Service was good and most of the staff were friendly and welcoming -spoiled by one guy who literally banged the drinks onto the table without a word. He must have been having a bad day. Drinks - a bit overpriced even by city standards.

    Great place and food was lovely. Barman was very friendly and recommended a nice wine. Only feedback I could give is that the table service needs improving , we had empty glasses , plates etc on our table and the waitresses were oblivious and just left them despite walking past our table many times empty handed. In the end I asked one to take the plates away but then they left the empty glasses! Bit more experience needed but everything else lovely.

    Service was terrible which made the whole experience bad. Ordered drinks which never arrived.. had to physically get up and find somebody to take our food order.. the food order was incorrect so had to send food back.. was sat for 40 minutes following our meal with dirty plates still on the table which put us off wanting a dessert. The place itself was lovely and it was a good atmosphere, and great that it’s free parking, but the service really lets the place down!
