About Madisons Restaurant

In the bustling metropolis of Rochdale, the dining options that stand out before you are nothing short of exceptional.

We dined here on Saturday 26th November (5 people). The restaurant was quite full and we had to go in the back room, this was ok but we would have preferred to be in the main part for the atmosphere. The food was lovely, well presented and well served. The staff were excellent, only complaint (a very tiny one) would be the wait for the coffees as we were in a queue for the machine. Highly recommend Madisons in Rochdale.

I have been going to this restaurant for approximately 15 years and it never disappoints until last night myself and my partner had to return our steaks both where overcooked and not the usual standard to be fair to Natalie our host she replaced them without question and the replacements where cooked perfectly but the steak still wasn't the same quality as previous visits saying all that I would still highly recommend Madison's great atmosphere and very attentive staff

Had a wonderful meal last night at Madison's , nothing too much trouble , good menu choice there was 6 of us who all had different meals and everyone enjoyed their meal . Only one little gripe was I had put a request on my booking for a circular table but we were given rectangle one . When I mentioned this we were changed immediately to a circular one which was appreciated .

This was our first time to Medisons Restaurant, because we come from Austria. The service was excellent and the meals were tasteful and of good quality. The steak was properly prepared and tender. Also the dessert we liked very much. We had a nice table next to the window with comfortable chairs. Unfortunately the car park is rather small and parking could be a problem at peak hours.

The atmosphere was fantastic, the staff were all friendly and very efficient, and the food was absolutely gorgeous. Four of us had a meal there and there was not one complaint about anything, we will definitely recommend Madison's and will also be returning. Thanks for a great night

We went here for a birthday/wedding celebration with 10 guests. The service was lovely the food was excellent. We had never been before but will definitely be going again. We had a variety of meals and every person really enjoyed their food. It was excellent value for money.

Food was excellent as it has been every time we have eaten here. The staff are very friendly and helpful, being more specific I have several food allergies but they were able to produce a really excellent meal for me. I would recommend to everybody try this restaurant and can say you will go back again.

Staff were courteous and pleasant. The food was excellent - a talented chef. Our party of four didn't feel 'rushed' at all. The building was comfortable and warm. We hope to visit again! Good value for the cost of the daytime three course meal!

The best steak I've had in a long time, served with some wonderful freshly fried chips and creamy peppercorn sauce. Too full for a dessert, though neighbouring table had a fantastic looking chocolate sundae. Will be going back to this hospitable place

We went for Sunday lunch. Food excellent. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Friendly and efficient staff. It was also very good value for money; two courses, two drinks and two coffees for just over £40. First time there but will go again.

Welcoming staff, easy booking procedure and confirmation, attractive and comfortable location, seasonal ambiance with 'quality' crackers, efficient table service and meals which were prepared to a uniformly high standard . No hesitation in recommending Madison's to friends. Also appreciated cloakroom facility and prompt taxi booking. First class.

In my opinion the food was overpriced. My husband's choice of 'cheese & onion pie' was simple but dry and bland. The soup was good but not enough of it. The staff were proficient but could have been more friendly and welcoming. Most stars were given for the cheesecake! I doubt if we'd dine their again.

Excellent food and friendly staff.Although there were 8 in our party we weren't rushed and everyone ate everything on their plates,always a good sign.Only downside was struggling to park the car as the car park is small

the food and service were great, and the only reason for the 5 and not 6 was that it was empty apart from us. This isn't the restaurant's fault, but the atmosphere was lacking with such a big space being empty.

Excellent service and good food. Madisons has a lovely, welcoming atmosphere and the staff are all friendly but professional. The Christmas menu is small but has a reasonable selection. Somewhere to visit again!

Excellent food and service as always. Our favourite starters are the Duck Salad and the Prawn Cocktail. Favourite main course is the Braised Steak. Sticky Toffee Pudding with custard is to die for.

Friendly staff,pleasant surrounding,excellent food. It was our first visit and we will definitely go again,I don't think you can beat £15.95 for a three course meal for the quality of food served

The atmosphere and service was as good as always no critism there. The only thing I would like to see is perhaps a change in the lunchtime menu although food is excellent would like to see something different.

Great service, food was fab considering the price and we weren't pressured to leave, sitting at the table for a couple of hours afterwards. Only slight criticism is that the beef was a little on the chewy side.

Our welcome felt cold, 'Have we booked?' Felt more important than hello with a smile. Food was nice although would have been better if the lamb was cooked to our liking but that wasn't offered when ordering. I didn't realise it was a 3 course meal (I don't do starters or desserts) so the price paid wasn't worth it for us.
