Restaurants & Bars

Modern flair, classic European dishes

The River Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel is one of Manchester’s best places to eat and drink in a glass-walled, riverside setting overlooking Santiago Calatrava’s Trinity Bridge. The convivial atmosphere is also deeply luxurious with purple leather chairs, semi-circular banquettes, while Fornasetti plates, mirrors and lithographs and prints decorate walls, The River Restaurant also has an exclusive private dining room for up to 24 people which is licenced for weddings and civil ceremonies.

Executive Chef Andrew Green's a la carte menu includes starters such as Asian seared scallops with turnip textures, samphire and vanilla foam mains include Native lobster with fennel, apple, pea mousseline and pepper sabayon. Meat lovers will be delighted to see a 16oz Chateaubriand roasted over the coals in our Josper Grill.  The pastry team have been busy creating some fabulous delights including a Bitter dark chocolate mousse and Coconut Malibu soufflé.

The adjoining River Bar and Terrace encapsulates The Lowry Hotel’s fun-loving spirit at the confluence of city life. Here you’ll find in the intimate, informal surroundings a quiet place to network, drink and kick-back with a perfectly mixed cocktail, club sandwich, salad, or more substantial dish from our menu. The cosy Library is tucked away at one end. Open until late, this is a place to enjoy our signature cocktails.

Here you will also find Manchester’s longest bar terrace — an open-air first-floor terrace for al fresco dining where you can enjoy a drink or meal from the bar or restaurant. Open year-round, The Terrace is perfect for summer afternoon get-togethers in this urban suntrap overlooking the River Irwell.
