About Randall & Aubin - Manchester
About the restaurant
Randall & Aubin Manchester is arguably one of the most lively, fun and sought-after dining spots in town. Located in Spinningfields, just along Bridge Street, this Anglo-French brasserie serves some of the best French-style seafood in Manchester, combined with modern British dishes on a menu created and overseen by Chef Ed Baines. Fantastic meat dishes cooked on a rotisserie are renowned, as are the British carvery roasts and the towering platters of Fruits de Mer, which are absolute feasts for the eyes! Be sure to sample a wine or two from the carefully curated list designed by Jamie Poulton and Joe Wadsack, which features an array of varietals that match the flavoursome dishes down to a tee. If all this is up your alley, reserve a table at Randall & Aubin Manchester for a feast you won’t forget!
Combining high-quality British produce with French brasserie-style dishes has made Randall & Aubin Manchester a favourite among Spinningfields locals. With other branches of this now iconic group located in London, this Manchester venue offers the same charming, stylish and relaxed atmosphere. The space itself is designed beautifully and you’ll find a long, 1920s-inspired bar alongside high seating under low-hanging light features that create a warm and welcoming ambience. All of which matches the menu perfectly, of course.
To begin your feast at Randall & Aubin Manchester, you can’t go past the oysters. Select from French, English, Irish, native or mixed rock oysters, which go perfectly when paired with a glass of sparkling or Champagne. Then, we recommend the Randall & Aubin crab cakes served with lime mayo, watercress and radish salad; hand-picked Devon crab and the seared Aubrey Allen beef carpaccio served with wild rocket, roast mushrooms, hazelnuts and parmesan.
For the main event at Randall & Aubin, we love sampling the free-range chicken cooked on the rotisserie with garlic and parsley butter served alongside pommes gaufrettes and watercress; roast pork belly with mashed potato, roast apple, chutney and gravy; or the Suffolk lamb with all the trimmings. Seafood lovers will be in heaven here, that’s for sure, and will love the half or whole lobster served with garlic butter and pommes frites; dress Dorset crab with potato salad and the fruits de mer seafood platter brimming with some of the freshest seafood in town. Located on Bridge Street in Spinningfields, this French and British restaurant will not disappoint. Reservations at Randall & Aubin Manchester are essential.
