Dukes 92 was originally a stable block for the horses delivering foods off barges to the Merchants warehouse opposite. From these humble begininngs the building now houses Manchester's original bar and grill which has been refurbished and extended three times since its opening in 1991 the space today is informal and airy with the buildings heritage being reflected in a subtle blend of antique furniture and modern fixed seating.
With its most recent refurbishment Dukes can now properly call itself a venue with two bars, three private events spaces, a grill restaurant, excellent smoking facilities, canalside terrace and balcony overlooking the canal basin. Dukes continued appeal relies on its ability to transform from a relaxed, family friendly environment by day to a vibrant and stylish bar and grill by night.
The space has been extended and refurbished since its opening in 1991 and inside its interior combines contemporary features and its trademark antique furniture.

    Good vibes - visited before a gig at Castlefield bowl (literally 2mins away). Location, setting, food and drinks all great. Only minor gripe was that ordering drinks through the app felt a bit laboured, and took approx 20mins to arrive (would have been quicker just walking to the bar and ordering). Other than that it was spot on!

    We had a table booked at 4.30pm we arrived slightly earlier and opted for a table outside, we went to the bar and we ordered starters mains drinks and kids meals around 4.20.. at no point we’re we told that they would bring everything all together, spicy chicken wings with a cold roast dinner doesn’t go well! After an hour of waiting I went to see where our meals were to be told that the chef is busy, who’d have thought it would have been busy on Father’s Day? Our food arrived at 5.35 an hour and 15 minutes later.. my steak was cold by the time if eaten my started and my husbands gravy had congealed after eaten his wings… at the price of the meal I exepevt a lot more, the service was terrible and food was cold, wouldn’t return

    Went for a birthday meal, the food is average as it is more a drinking place. The waiter came very fast with each step and it didn't leave you to think or have time to relax. When the waiter did come over he never topped up our glasses and kept trying to take our plates away when we were pausing from eating as we were talking. The food is a good amount of money for what you get as the portion sizes are big. I said I would recommend Dukes 92 to a friend for drinks

    Struggled with the wifi so ordering took quite some time. No cocktails or pizza was available to order. Music was too loud to be able to have a conversation at 7.30pm, the loud slamming of glass bottles continuously was not relaxing either. No cutlery or napkins were provided with our meal.

    The service wasn’t great at all, for example we ordered a bottle of Prosecco and they put it on the table and walked away without opening it. Then our food came and they put it down and didn’t come back with any cutlery, then there was nobody to be seen walking around to ask for some. The food was ok, but I don’t think we’ll be visiting again mainly due to the very poor service.
