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.

    Arrived for our booking party of 4 sat outside for food and drinks promptly seated. Food and drinks have to be ordered on an App I think this makes the experience very impersonal particularly ordering food. I asked a staff member for a jug of water politely I might add she looked at me and the response was errm I am very busy eventually another staff member walked past and was happy to oblige. Come on you have been shut for months at least show some enthusiasm.Also the wine was so so.

    We really enjoyed our meal, but much prefer the waiter or waitress to come to the table to take your order instead of having to go to the bar to order. But I guess this is a sign of COVID times. Overall we all enjoyed the afternoon.

    Been here for years and unfortunately do not think i will be coming in the future. Service was rude and unfriendly. Too busy messing around with each other to provide good service. The app based service meant we were charged for something which never arrived. Terrible let down for somewhere that used to be a really good restaurant.

    We were shown to our table which was right in the corner. We had to pull the table out to make space to be able to sit down to which a waitress said “no clue why you’ve done that to the table”… The table we sat at was filthy from the last person who sat there & it took an additional 20 minutes after being seated to be wiped down. Because we were in the corner, we had no signal to order anything. When our food came, half of the order was missing & no member of staff noticed this until we’d pretty much eaten our whole meal… Won’t be returning.

    We went for my friend’s Hen Do, so it was a special occasion. The restaurant was amazing inside, the decor was beautiful and the place just seemed to have a really lovely lively atmosphere. The table we were given was brilliant, slightly separate from everyone else which was perfect for us so we could have a good chat and enjoy the meal. The service was slightly slow at the beginning but it was a Saturday night and this picked up once we had a designated waiter provided. The staff we encountered were all friendly and would come and check on us every so often to check we were okay or if we needed anything. The food and drinks menu is varied, with something on there for everyone. Everyone in the party really enjoyed their meals and would definitely be recommending the place. Would definitely go back again.

    Great service, we bought two cakes to celebrate birthdays and the staff were great at keeping them in the kitchen for us until we had eaten and then two of the team took time to bring them out and sing happy birthday at our table (even though we could see you had a busy day) the two ladies on the door welcoming people and showing them to the table was extra friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for making the day special.

    Known to be very good.. on this occasion (party of 11), food was lukewarm. The jerk chicken was burnt hard, the starters and mains came irregular, drinks failed to turn up, cutlery had to be chased and other tables orders kept landing on our table and left there (rather than being disposed). It was a real mishmash.. it's a poor experience and we should have turned everything away but the delays effected other ongoing plans.
