The V&A Restaurant
The team at The V&A Restaurant has set its sights firmly on gaining AA rosettes. Set within the Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel’s listed premises, the restaurant boasts a relaxed, inviting space that seamlessly blends the building’s original features with stylish, comfortable furnishings. Think handsome, post-industrial exposed brickwork and wooden beams paired with the newly styled green and blue Marriott hues.
After a warm and genuinely welcoming reception, recline in a plush leather Chesterfield chair or retreat to a booth with riverside views to peruse the outstanding modern British à la carte menu. First courses of crispy egg with black pudding, and twice-baked soufflé served with delectably creamy cheese sauce will no doubt tantalise. Meanwhile, mains of braised feather blade of beef served with creamy mash, organic vegetables and jus; and roasted rolled cod with wild mushroom purée and buttered leeks will ensure that visitors consider their options very seriously. A picture perfect finish is ensured thanks to sweet treats like vanilla crème brûlée and popcorn panna cotta, and a delectable Manchester-themed afternoon tea completes a truly sensational bill of fare.
Whether you’re staying in one of the hotel’s stylish suites, or simply looking for a relaxed meal with friends and family, The V&A Restaurant is a must visit – a city-centre retreat with the undisturbed ambience of a remote country hotel.
