I have never been treated so disgustingly by a pair of male bouncers in my life. Started swearing and calling a group of girls names, let us in and then chased us through the club to get us to leave? Talk about power going to their heads. Will not be returning and I'll be sure to let everyone I know,... More

The second time visiting this shambles of an establishment, First was for food & second for drinks - Both shockingly bad experiences On Saturday, myself & 4 other males (all of the Caribbean decent) attempted to enter Walrus, all sober, calm and collected. Due to being a group of 5, we was refused entry! however there was a group of... More

Popped in with the family for the lunch time pizza offer and was seated quickly and made to feel welcome - pizzas came quick enough and were piping hot and lovely - couldn't fault what we all had and we left satisfied.

We went on a Saturday early evening and got a table easily in a booth which was really comfortable. We had pizzas which were so huge I regretted ordering a starter. DJ played nice mix of RnB which was also fine for our kids in their early teens.

I visited here with a group of friends. When we entered the only table available wasn't cleared. A waitress said she would clean it and didn't bother to return. We waited for around 20 minutes for anyone to come to us with a menu or to clean the table. This was then with a very dirty looking cloth with no... More

There's a reason why this 'restaurant' is ranked number 1,073 in Manchester on TripAdvisor. Awful customer service, not enough staff, poor food and ridiculous waiting times all topped off with a rude, arrogant and patronising manager. A quick lunch soon turned into a 2 and a half hour ordeal. Save ya money kids.

Visited when down in Manchester seeing family and passed by noticing the lunch offer. The £5 offer is a great deal but watch what you order. I had the all day breakfast calzone which was probably the worst choice I've ever picked in any restaurant in my life, what a poor feeble attempt at food it was. I wasn't sure... More

This was our last stop after a 6 hour afternoon out eating and drinking ! Reasonable prices if drinking cocktails at happy hour (2 for £10)! The place was exceptionally busy so we struggled to get seats at first. Bided our time and then sat and enjoyed. Great place

I went here with a couple friends. The food came out cold and was very bland. Quite disappointed to be honest. I ordered the buttermilk chicken burger and a friend has a beef burger. Also my friends burger bun was stale 😳 I wouldn't recommend however, I have heard from others the pizzas are better. However the service was great... More
