About Christie's Bistro

Welcome to Christie’s Bistro – perhaps one of the University of Manchester’s most breath taking venues. Based in the old Science Library of Owens College, it still remains one of the institutions’, if not Manchester’s best hidden gem.

Christie’s is the perfect place to relax with friends and colleagues. We offer a chilled lounge area to sit and enjoy light bites, artisan coffees and cold drinks, or a more formal dining a la carte restaurant.

We have a range of food options available throughout the day.
• Breakfast / Brunch is available from 8am until 11.30am
• Lunch in our Lounge or Restaurant is served between 12noon and 3pm.
• Afternoon Tea is available between 2pm – 4pm.

The Bistro is also available for private bookings in the evening and at weekends. Please get in touch to discuss options for parties, weddings, and receptions.

Staff were accomodating but food took a little while. Some confusion over advanced food order, but generally good service.

It was well organised and everything arrived on time, so very good service and excellent cakes. Would be good if tea was served from teapots rather than flasks. The students were impressed that this has been put on for them.

First visit, we will definitely return. I would have liked more vegetarian options but otherwise fantastic. We booked because the cafe in the town hall was closed. However, this was just as beautiful.

Reserving online worked well. Pleasant environment, comfortable, food good (very nice quiche); pity you can't put orders on a tab and pay just once; otherwise all fine.

Thank you for the lovely pre-ordered lunch! which is certainly of great help with timing. Dishes were well prepared and presented. The one of promotional discount applied certainly made the visit of great value.
