About River Restaurant

The River Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel is one of Manchester's best places to eat and drink in a glass-walled, riverside setting.

Executive Chef Andrew Green has launched his new spring a la carte menu. Starters include a wonderful deconstructed chicken Caesar salad whilst mains include a loin of monkfish. Meat lovers will be delighted to see the return of a 16oz Chateaubriand roasted over the coals in our Josper Grill. The pastry team have been busy creating some fabulous delights including a banana mille feuille - wow!

The adjoining River Bar and Terrace encapsulates The Lowry Hotel's fun-loving spirit at the confluence of city life. Here you will 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.

We had heard good things - being a hotel might put a few people off but it shouldn't - the service was excellent and the 3 course chef menu for the price was amazing quality and value. Really enjoyed it.

Visited the River Restaurant on Saturday for brunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. From the moment we sat down, we were treated exceptionally well and the service continued for the duration of our meal. The buffet had a wide selection of local sourced produce and the wine was fantastic. We all opted for the steak sandwich main and they were all perfectly cooked to our requests. I will definitely be returning again with more friends to show off this new favourite!
