The River Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel is a 2 AA rosette restaurant and 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. The restaurant serves breakfast, Sunday lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.

The à la carte menu has been devised around the best local and seasonal produce. An additional three-course menu changes each month following the seasonal bounty and is just £24.95 for three courses at dinner except Saturday Evening, while our popular Sunday lunch menu is £22.50 per person for three courses and is always accompanied by live music. You can choose from Traditional Afternoon Tea priced at £22.50, or £33 with Gin, Champagne or Bellini. Or try our monthly themed afternoon tea priced at £29.50 which will celebrate big events such as PRIDE.

The River Restaurant’s superb à la carte menu has been given an update ready for the summer months. Packed full of local, seasonal dishes, the favourites are still there just with a twist for the warmer months. Expect citrus flavours, green salads and a blast of northern vibe in every bite. Using premium ingredients and local suppliers, the celebrational menu takes traditional and classic dishes and updates them with a modern twist.
such as the intense Potted Shrimp, a mouth-watering Lobster Macaroni Cheese, the highly popular Twice Baked 'Blacksticks Blue' Soufflé or the Salt Beef Hash, with slow egg and spiced ketchup. For mains, stand-out dishes include Andrew’s personal favourite the Beef Wellington which is brought to the table and showcased by the chef before being sliced. Baked in mushroom duxelles, Parma ham, with puff pastry with Maderia sauce, it’s one of a number of dishes to share between two. Fish-lovers are spoilt for choice. To decide between the delicately prepared Lowry Fish Pie which has intense flavours of the sea, or an exquisite Meuniere-style Whole Dover Sole, a prime, succulent fish served on or off the bone, or perhaps the Monkfish Loin, with Alsace bacon & pea velouté. You will not miss meat with our vegetarian options, which include Wild Mushroom, Puy Lentil & Aubergine Cottage Pie with truffled mash.

Room for a pudding? Try the ‘Best of British’ selection of desserts; Sticky Toffee & Medjool Date Pudding, served with Madagasgan ice cream. Sticky Coconut Rice, with mango, passion fruit curd & lime is another twist on a much-loved British favourite. If you like to share, the restaurant’s Peach Tarte Tatin shouldn’t be resisted, served with almond & amaretto ice cream.

Afternoon Tea is served Monday to Saturday between 12 noon and 4pm and Sunday 2.00pm and 4.00pm. Sunday lunch is served between 12 noon and 4pm every Sunday. Dinner is served daily between 6pm and 10.00pm.
