About The George Charles

By George the food – and drink – at this new-school Didsbury boozer is good! Joining the growing throng of fine eateries and watering holes in West Didsbury village along Burton Road, The George Charles is already a local favourite. The food is cooked, as it were, from the ground up using the best that Manchester’s regional suppliers can hand over, the drinks are top-notch, and the whole lot is housed inside a sensitively restored Victorian pub, owners Phil Burgess (formerly of The Lowry Theatre) and David Vanderhook paying tribute to the area’s rich history of migration and hard graft by naming their gastropub-gaff after late 19th-century Armenian emigre who marries a local lass and opened up a fruit stall nearby. All manner of robust European and British classics are on offer thanks to the magic of head chef Jason Cohen, there are craft beers aplenty for hopheads, and you’ll often find live music gracing the premises, too.

Friendly service, cracking Sunday lunch. Great veg, crispy Yorkshire pud, extra gravy in a jug with it and a cauliflower cheese. Warm atmosphere and dog friendly.

Great food and a good atmosphere, I come here often for the food! You could pick anything from the menu and most probably it'll be delicious.

The George Charles is a delightful restaurant. Delicious beers, fantastic food and it's dog friendly too. We had the roast beef which was absolutely scrumptious and I got an extra jug of grave cos the waiter felt mine didn't have enough! We followed that with the lemon posset. Always good. Always worth booking ahead!

Really good food, the pigs cheeks were particularly tasty. Melted in your mouth! Only downside was a lot of the mussels starter hadn't opened which suggested they could have done with another minute. main courses were delicious so we were more than satisfied with the food. restaurant area lacked atmosphere. we were the only ones eating at 7.30pm on a Friday night and as the dining area is downstairs from the pub it was extremely quiet. Maybe we just chose the wrong night/time but it did highlight the traffic to the toilets which are also downstairs. I suspect we wouldn't have noticed if a few more tables had been full. Overall though it was a good night and we will return.

We dined on a Saturday night and the restaurant was empty it was early 6.30. I not sure why as the décor is lovely and the service is good,the menu although not extensive was fine however 17.50 for cod was too high for me. I had risotto it was fine and my husband had the fish and chips which was enormous he enjoyed it. My only criticism if anything is that it lack atmosphere the dining room is in the basement therefore no outside view and no staff either unless they are delivering food they don't hang around.

The food in here was great and the prices were decent. I thought the toilets downstairs smelled quite badly and if I had been seated there then I would not have been happy. As it was, going to the toilet was an unpleasant experience with the smell combined with the fact that, on my first trip, the door to the cubicle wouldn't close as it was too big for the opening and on the second, there was no loo roll in the cubicle. The menu is quite small but the food was fab, with local ingredients being used. Service was friendly.

Food good but limited choice and informed when attempting to order a dish with chicken thighs that it would take 20min, changed my order as was on a time limit however the order still took 15-20min. The General service was fine and waitress was pleasant and helpful my friends food was excellent and she booked a table for wkd.

Food and service were excellent , we went with friends and they enjoyed it to. We don't have a dog but our friends do, they thought it was great that you could just pop in with your dog too.
