About Alston Bar & Beef - Manchester

Alston Bar & Beef Manchester combines two of our very favourite things – gin and steak! This city centre steakhouse has a distinct focus on high quality meat, and their Tweed Valley beef comes from only the finest, accredited farms in the Scottish borders. Situated in the Corn Exchange on Cathedral Street, Alston Bar & Beef Manchester is just as perfect for an after work meal as it is for a special occasion – plus, they even have their very own delicious gin infusions for you to wash down your steak with. This spot can get pretty busy, mind you, particularly on weekends. So, why not grab a table now to beat the crowds?

We thought everything was really good, the staff, the decor the food. We go out every Sunday for lunch. My wife, Dee, usually go's for the roast dinner; however, no matter where you go there is alway one element that spoils the meal, be it the meat, the roast potatoes, Yorkshire pud or sweet red cabbage which we think should never go near a Sunday lunch. Yours past the Dee test with flying colours. I also had a lovely beetroot and goats cheese risotto. Also at lot of places in the city think they can charge the earth just because of the location; places where you can have a good meal but would not return because it's just to expensive. We both thought your pricing to spot on. So we'll be seeing you again with a few more of the family in tow. Good luck Tony

1st class food & friendly, attentive service. Drinks pricey but average for this restaurant level in Manchester. Would class it as formal setting with beautiful decor and cloth napkins. Well cooked, well presented food all served at the same time to our table of 3. If there is a negative, mains could have been hotter especially the vegetables.

An early dinner prior to music event on a Monday. So quiet to start but staff were friendly and attentive. Great food - beautifully presented and steaks perfectly cooked for all our party. Smart restaurant and clean. Would definitely go again.
