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.

    Met with indifference by what I assume was the equivalent of a maitre d. Continued a conversation rather than acknowledge my existence. Is chewing gum acceptable? Maybe I’m getting old. Despite booking over a month ago I was led to a high table on which you couldn’t fit two plates & so hardly suitable for dining for two. Asked to be reseated, but said they were fully booked. Left without eating, there are so many places in Manchester that offer a better customer experience./

    Overall really nice place. Went for a meal with my family on a Friday evening and did not realise how loud the restaurant would be! They had a DJ on :) would definitely come back again with my friends, but probably not for a family meal. Service was good and our waiter did a great job at being attentive whilst it was super busy!!

    Really nice meal. Only problem was the starters came out with the main meal ! Waitress said that’s how we ordered it - I thought as we only had a table of three they would realise these were starters! But the food was good.

    Arrived with my husband his 2 sisters who have come from Scotland for my husbands 60th and someone was sat our table (just a random person) which OK got sorted eventually . I told them in advance it was my husbands 60th. We were sat near the door that kept being left open.. It was freezing We asked for a suprisepudding to sing happy birthday with they forgot - we were willing to pay) they didn't even give us a sweet menu after our main or the offer of coffee. Why we had finished our meals in plenty of time. when I asked they said kitchen was closed.. Awful service noone cared.

    The ambiance was like no other. Food was absolutely outstanding. Upon arrival the service wasn’t great so there is room for improvement, however a lovely lady served us drinks with a warm and cosy welcome. Overall great value for money, perfect for any occasion. Will definitely recommend and be back

    The food has gone down since I was last here in 2019. The wife had Sirloin Steak which was fatty as and even the chief agreed. Lamb kebab was ok but nothing to shout about. Refund was given for steak. Wreaked our night looking for somewhere for my wife to eat.

    Excellent food and ambience. Great live music. Only thing that let it down was the extremely poor service. Waiting ages for menu/bill and difficult to get any attention from staff. Had to go up and speak to staff on 2 occassions to ask for water and the bill. Otherwise very good.

    Food very good. Waitress forgot one of our starters only orderd 3, when chased brought with mains, not ideal. Food very nice no complaints. Dukes wasn't busy but we felt took a long time for food to come. On booking said for a birthday would have been a nice touch for someone to ask who's birthday it was. Overall a nice experience

    This was our 2nd visit to Dukes92, and we thoroughly 3niiyed it. We had a party of 5, Bea looked after us again and made sure everything was spot on. She told us it's her last night which was not good to hear, but wish her all the best in the future. The place was buzzing and had a great atmosphere, despite the DJ not really being very good. There was a bunch of girls celebrating a birthday, they were all really nice and friendly, Kate from Wales, thanks for coming to chatting to us, I hope you all had a wonderful night :)

    Food and drinks were amazing, lovely venue but didn’t appreciate having to eat surrounded by people smoking, it ruined the meal and with both of us having asthma we went too impressed, I would suggest having separate seating outside for smoking and non smoking as this ruined out experience.

    It felt like another basic place because of the customer service. The place looks amazing, the drinks and food are nice too. Portions are satisfactory and the prices are good too! The staff didn't look after you and they are talking to you more like their friends not as customers which is not professional. Nobody checked on us all night if we are ok and our table plus the tables around us weren't cleaned for hours even if the people left and we didn't have space on table after we finished the dinner. Is a nice experience and definetly coming back soon !
