It was a cold rainy night and we wanted somewhere nice to eat before a gig at the Band on the Wall opposite. We'd googled 'pull up bar' only to find mostly gym equipment! We eventually found Pull Up and were welcomed in like old...friends. The food was delicious (equally good choice for vegans - still rare, sadly) and the music playing was great. Service was excellent. It's great value for money. We'll definitely return. Thanks!More

Went for my friends birthday and left feeling like family. We each had something different on the menu including curry goat that just fell off the bone, jerk chicken and the fish. Every mouthful was packed full of flavour. Plus the dumplings were to die...for. We all left very full with the great portion sizes. The atmosphere was incredible thanks to the friendly and helpful staff. As it was my friends birthday they gave her a free cocktail that was HUGE and really made a fuss of her to make her feel extra special. Honestly some of the best food I’ve had in Manchester and will be bringing all my other friends and family here next time. Thanks to all the amazing staff for making it a wonderful evening.More

Absolutely terrible – or in the words of my partner “bumbaclat terrible”! We attended for Sunday dinner. Firstly, there was none of the drinks available that we asked for (no Red Stripe or Heineken). This was not a good start and my partner was ready...to call time right here! We went for the ‘Peppered Steak’. When my partner asked if that came with rice n peas, we were told not and that you had to buy that separate. The ‘Peppered Steak’ arrived and so did the small bowl of ‘rice n peas’. Firstly the rice was white, it had 2 ‘peas’ in it, and also grated coconut on top. I guarantee that at no time had the rice n peas been in the same pan whilst being cooked, how do you cook rice n peas together, and end up with white rice!? The ‘Peppered Steak’ was pot roast, it came in massive fatty lumps. The taste was pepper - black pepper, which is not the ‘authentic Caribbean cuisine’ they advertise. We did complain at the time, but obviously they were not interested that we called them out on their authentic Caribbean cuisine, and are clearly only interested in making money peddling this so called Caribbean cuisine. Obviously, the majority of their clientele would probably not know what authentic Caribbean cuisine should taste (or even look) like, and probably also frequent Turtle Bay, therefore this rubbish will continue to be sold to those people in ignorant bliss! To end on a positive note – although they don’t deserve it – there was one authentic thing – the music they were playing was straight out of Yard. Pull Up? – rather don’t bother and keep on going!!!More

I had a great meal her with my friend, the portion sizes were so much, hence needing to have a 'doggy bag'. Great food, drinks and music. The staff are so helpful and pleasant. I would definitely recommend. Sonia -

We walked past on a Saturday night at 7.00 pm, after trying a bigger venue without booking, we managed to get a table. The menu had a lot to choose from and the Lamb Chops’ flavour was punchy! Really good atmosphere, it was pretty busy...and we waited a while for the food, but it was Saturday night and worth the wait. Got food envy from other plates nearby so I’ll be going back.More

We’d walked past Pull Up the other week and it looked like a great place to enjoy some food and drinks. Went with my husband and our friend and we weren’t disappointed! Firstly the service, our servers were both really friendly and gave us recommendations...on the menu and explained we could swap out sides etc and checked up on us throughout our evening there to see if we needed more drinks without being overbearing. Could have a laugh with the servers too, they were really friendly. The food was out of this world for flavour! Across the three of us, we had curry goat, peppered steak, jerk chicken and chops. Everything was cooked to perfection, meat was succulent and melt in the mouth, and the flavours were insanely good. The rice and peas and sides were all delicious too, and the portion sizes were good. We had the pitchers, which were fun to share, plus the ginger mojito was delicious. We had a couple of other cocktails too, all of which were fantastic too. We will definitely be back, we had a gorgeous time, and enjoyed every single bite and sip!More

I visited Pull Up bar today for my mums birthday. The food was great, the curry goat was well seasoned and tasted like authentic Jamaican curry goat. The dumpling was soft, just how I like it and the plantain was perfect. The portion size was...huge so we had some food to take home afterwards. The music was a bit loud but other than that it was wonderful. I would definitely recommend visiting!!More
