Overlooking the Theatre of Dreams and nestled within Hotel Football, Cafe Football is a restaurant with a sports bar flair. Serving up dishes inspired by the love of football, the menu offers freshly prepared options designed to be enjoyed while watching your favourite sporting event on any of the 13 big-screen TVs.

Bring the whole family to enjoy a meal together. Besides offering a great selection for the adults, Cafe Football loves kids, and we have the perfect menu designed just for them. For afters they can make a trip to our in-house sweet shop.

We also have 2 wonderful afternoon tea options. We've taken the traditional offering and mixed it up a bit with a Savoury (Home) or a Sweet (Away) option to choose from.

So whether it's watching that special game with friends, enjoying some time with the family or having a nice meal before visiting Old Trafford next door, Cafe Football is the place to enjoy great food in a unique setting.

    The food was great, homemade pie. The only thing I would say is, there's not much choice on the menu. The day we went, they'd ran out of some options aswell, so that limited the choice even more

    Great place. Lovely setting overlooking the canal. Lively atmosphere, great food and staff friendly. We went pre The Killers show and it was buzzing. Service was OK for such a busy place

    On first glance the menu didn't offer much of interest (aimed at a younger generation who didn't mind how much their waistlines expanded). However, upon closer inspection dishes of interest could be found and they were delicious. The service was also good - all the staff were very helpful and pleasant.

    Beautiful location with a view of Old Trafford, the menu looks good at first glance. The service is very poor considering how under staffed the café is I guess that can be expected. The food we had was pretty awful, maybe we just had poor luck. Chicken Wings Starter- Completely raw chicken under breadcrumb coating Burgers ordered- This was average but we had no appetite after the raw starter this may have clouded our palettes on the main course Drinks- Cocktails are creative and tasty so are the milkshakes

    Always great food and fabulous service. Went to eat and then watch the Europa Cup final in the downstairs Old Trafford Supporters Club, but recommend the restaurant for any occasion.
