Lime is a bar and restaurant in Manchester’s Salford Quays that is consistently delivering excellent locally-sourced food and superior cocktails for Manchester’s trendy young things. Moments from Media City and the city centre on the Quays, this is a unique place to sample internationally-inspired food in the second city. The team here strive to deliver excellence in their dishes, and do so by keeping the focus on the details at the Lowry Outlet Mall.
Established long before Salford Quays were trendy in 2001 by David Vanderhook, Lime Bar and Restaurant has morphed into a destination bar for visitors to the Quays. Opposite Manchester’s esteemed Lowry Theatre, Lime has made a name for itself as a pre- or post-theatre spot for culture vultures in Manchester hungry for internationally-inspired food and drink. The team at Lime, inside the Lowry Outlet Mall pride themselves on sourcing their ingredients locally and their evolving menu; this is a favourite to Mancunians in Salford.
David Vanderhook is a chef who has cut his teeth in some of the most competitive arenas in the world. He has served as a personal chefs to the Rothschild family as well as to Valentino and the Aga family. To say that he has a formidable CV would be to underestimate him entirely.

Food was great, service was great, atmosphere was great. Even when my drink order was wrong it was sorted out quickly. Would go definitely go back again!
Great restaurant - enjoy visiting before matches at Old Trafford.
Great Location and interior decor. Initial greeting was professional and all the service was excellent. Good choice of menus, including pre-theatre and a la carte. Pricing of the pre-theatre was excellent. Had my favourite gin and a great atmosphere.
