Been back many times and never disappoints. Can't wait for the expansion and more vendors being available so there's more choice

Still getting g used to the app for ordering . Staff are lovely and friendly , music was great, booth was cozy. Covid rules upheld to the letter . Drinks on the expensive side but within the whole experience worth it ! Third time there and enjoyed everytime. Dress for outdoors!

My absolute favourite place to drink in Manchester. Great service, amazing vibe & atmosphere and just a really cool place to be. It would be nice to be able to secure a longer time slot though. Maybe 4 hours - perhaps a small charge for this to try to keep it under control. Great venue though - I’d drink here every weekend, if time permitted.

It was my first time out in months and I must say I was truly impressed. From the door. Staff are clear on guidance, happy and welcoming. The contactless service is fantastic. Food and drink choices were great. Would’ve liked more tapas like options. Looking forward to what else you have planned.

Great night perfect at the Moment being outside for social distancing - food was AMAZING and the bottle of gin went down a treat! Will definitely be back!

I ordered a slice of pizza from Voodoo Rays and it took over an hour to arrive! Other people on my table ordered a slice and a whole pizza about half an hour after me and they both arrived before mine 😂 atmosphere great and the food was lovely though!

Hi there, The first time I visited was an afternoon, and I had a great time. The latest time was a Saturday night, I booked a table back in July/August I think, and then we still had to queue for around 20 minutes? What's the point in booking? I will be coming back, probably in the afternoon again rather than the night. But wanted to share my honest feedback. Thanks.

Nice place with a good atmosphere and decent food choices. Unfortunately it was pretty cold the day we went and although we'd wrapped up, we were too cold on our table so decided to cut our stay short and eat somewhere else. Others were dong the same on tables that were in the open as ours was. Next time, If the weather's not looking the best I'd contact the venue ahead of time and request a table that's besides a heater/covered, especially for tables for two, larger tables appeared to be by heaters on the whole.

Good atmosphere, could have done with a few more heaters in the cold but overall really good.
