We visited cafe football for fathers day - Dads ate free and the food was delicious! Lovely friendly service. We sat by the window next to the canal with a view of Old Trafford - Dad loved it! I was a little disappointed with the dessert selection but we had a really lovely time and will definitely visit again.

Initially very poor service, waited over 15 minutes for someone to take our order but it was for food and not drinks to start with. The waitress had to return to us and take a drinks order after us prompting her. Food was quick to arrive and hot on arrival. Very tasty food but quite overpriced for what you get. Service towards the end, for clearing up mains dishes and desserts was exceptional. We had a really nice waiter, very chatty and generous with his time. I would go again, but perhaps for a casual lunch and not as a Father’s Day dinner treat.

Service was extremely slow. We had to keep getting waiter attention to order more drinks. We arrived at 6 on and did t get our mains untill 7:45. Even though it was quiet. The children’s meatballs were spicy so my daughter couldn’t eat them so therefore shared out burger and chips. The food was nice but was rather expensive for a burger and some chips

Service wasn’t great; food didn’t come out together (20% was knocked off the bill for this), drinks order was wrong, gave us dessert menus but didn’t come to see if we wanted anything and asked for a couple of drinks that never arrived. Shame as the food was lovely and would have liked to visit again

The food was poor. Fish was stone cold, mash was like warm, Beast burger was severely overcooked, other burger had no Stilton in the middle....etc etc. Couldn’t really here the commentary of champions league final, and the atmosphere was flat. The place was very cold, the AC temp was too low.

Most of the burgers on the menu were sold out and so were some of the starters. Food was less than average and too overpriced, I suppose people only come here to watch live sports on TV

Took advantage of the kids eat free deal during half term as a treat for my son before doing the Old Trafford tour. Excellent service in the cafe, son was especially impressed with the visit to the sweet shop included in his kids meal! Would happily visit again and would love to arrange a stay at the hotel for the full experience

Great quick friendly service after the treble reunion match. My nephew loves it here. Food is not very exciting but the menu is fun and everything we ate was well prepared and tasty. Obviously really handy for Old Trafford

Me and family had an amazing time at cafe football, staff were amazing. My 9 old son wanted strawberry ice cream but they didn't have any at the time so my son had vanilla instead, then one of the kitchen staff found some and gave him the strawberry ice cream too free of charge. Amazing service thank you cafe football

The quality of food was good, but the service was absolutely lacking. We waited approximately 30 minutes before our drinks orders were taken, and then approximately another 15 before our food order was taken. Drinks orders placed during our meal were forgotten, incorrect side orders were brought out, and generally I got the sense that the team were struggling and required extra staff on hand. Unfortunately, this lack of service spoilt what would otherwise have been a lovely meal.

We booked a table for after the legends match on Sunday. When we arrived the restaurant was quite busy, but we were quickly seated. It did take a while for a server to come and take a drink order and we ordered food at the same time as we were ready. The food arrived really quite fast considering that the place was almost full. All three of our meals were delicious. The table next to us appeared to be having some kind of issue, but we were more than happy with everything. We had a variety of different servers, so we weren't sure whose attention we should try to attract when we wanted another drink, or the bill, so it was a little bit slower, service wise than we would have hoped for, but nothing major. One server presented the bill and another came and took payment by card. Whilst he was doing so, he asked what our plans were for the rest of the evening, and I told him not much except going back to our hotel, with our daughter. He then suggested that we could go up and look at the pitch on the top floor of the hotel, he said we would be able to access it without a key card if we went in a particular lift. My daughter was thrilled and super excited at the prospect. He even said that there might be a ball up there if we wanted a kickabout. I questioned if he was sure we were allowed and he said yes of course no problem. Our daughter literally ran out to the lift, but when I asked the security man outside which lift we should use, he said that we weren't allowed to. I explained that the server had told our daughter that we were allowed and how disappointed she would be not to go up now, and he said no, it isn't open and we couldn't go up! So what had been a nice experience ended in real disappointment and upset for my little girl, who was happy enough until the server said we would be able to do this visit to the pitch and then was told that no she couldn't after all!

I found the portion sizes very small and overpriced to the extent that the strawberry and chocolate sundaes were a rip off! How can you say strawberries and chocolate sundaes when you actually only get one strawberry and two little pieces of brownie and the rest ice cream. Basically you are paying £6 for a glass of ice cream! These need to be around £3! Presentation was very poor. I did not fancy my chicken kebab just on the presentation but it did actually taste nice. Waiting on staff were very polite. I did notice though that we were first in but took a while for our drinks order to be taken despite others receiving there’s. One of the sundaes was taken off our bill which was appreciated. In view of this we will not be visiting again

Love coming to hotel/cafe football. Have been lucky enough to stay over on my 40th birthday and haven eaten at the cafe on numerous occasions, always had lovely food and great service. Just one issue...the cake of the day was coffee and walnut...yuk....if there had been more choice of cakes we would have had pudding as well. Thank you and will see you again soon
