Further Information

Greece might not be in the rudest economic health at the moment – unlike, for example, Wilmslow – but with a culinary history dating back thousands of years, you can be sure that one thing will always survive: the food. This is the land of olive oil and lemon juice, of olives and feta cheese, of meats roasted, skewered and kebabed, whether lamb, chicken or pork. The Stolen Lamb on Grove Street is just a short walk from Wilmslow station – and thus easily reached from central Manchester – and they offer up all the classics of Greek cuisine, with a superb range of dishes designed to delight the whole family.

At The Stolen Lamb on Grove Street in Wilmslow, it pays to start your meal with a few starters. Call them traditionalists, stick-in-the-muds if you will, but with a mezze menu like theirs, you’d do the same. The breads and dips are of course there, as are the Greek favourites of halloumi, dolmades and calamari, as well as a selection of traditional sausages. The mains that follow are not to be missed – whether souvlaki skewers or oven-roasted meats, and of course, a lamb dish is the speciality here: so grab yourself a kleftiko. Manchester is a great place to eat Greek food, and few places are better than The Stolen Lamb, so book a table now.

Excellent meal and hospitality -- Would definitely go again -- A little bit of a wait for service but when in Greece you would expect that anyway -- Overall a very pleasant experience.

Shame the reservation hadn't made it through to them. Bigger shame that they shut down next week because being in there, eating their faultless food was like being in a posh, real Greek restaurant. I hope it comes back in a premises it deserves. Can't fault the food or service.

Excellent food. It's mine and my partners favourite place however the young lads waiting on need to fine tune their skills as it makes a huge difference when George (owner) is not front of house. Things like pouring water For guests rather than plonking down the jug and walking off etc. That's being picky however better service from the young lads would take it to the next level.

The food was excellent and there was a very nice atmosphere but towards the end of the night we weren't attended to at all by the staff, we had to go to the bar to ask for our desserts then again for another drink and the to get the bull and pay. We were the last customers in the restaurant and they were just chatting away to their mates

They were short on quite a few ingredients, a Greek restaurant with 'no Olives left' !! Go to Tescos and buy some...waiter might just have been new, but my Japanese business guests didn't know what to make when he kept referring to them all as 'mate' eg. 'What are you having mate' . We ordered dessert and without notice were presented with a 'plate of assorted puddings that we only have left, chef says sorry it's on the house' ! All in all the food that we got was quite nice, but the service was a bit lacklustre.

Food was really delicious, but on the evening we attended there were quite a number of items unavailable, both food items and retsina wine, and when we ran out of flatbread to eat the dips with were charged £2.00 for another couple of pitta breads which was slightly annoying.

The food was delicious but the portions were very small. We liked it but because of the portion sizes we would not go again. The waiters were very nice but very disorganised

Had a fantastic time. Couldn't fault the food. Only issue was finding somewhere to park which wasn't an issue of the restaurants. Will be returning

good ambiance but nothing too exciting on the menu. I thought it might be Greek with a modern twist but it was not the case
