About Gorilla - Manchester

Under the railway tracks on Whitworth Street West is GORILLA, a bar, kitchen, live venue and club space from the people behind Trof and The Deaf Institute.

Breakfast is served from 11.30am until 4pm. All other food is served from 11.30am until late. Choose from award winning royal breakfasts and Sunday roasts, chargrilled burgers and fancy sandwiches. There’s a grilled selection too; choices include steak on the rib, spatch-cocked chicken with lemon and fresh herbs, halloumi and chicken kebabs. And, like all of Trof’s venues, we're served by our own in-house bakery, which means that the sourdough, brioche and maple and pecan muffins couldn’t be any fresher.

On the drinks list, we have a full menu of cocktails and shakes, alongside the best in bottled and canned beers, fine wines and fair-trade coffees. And there’s a second bar to explore too.

After making an online reservation fo 9.30 Breakfast, on arrival at Gorilla early at 9.10 - the doors were shut and staff inside saying it does not open until 10. website clearly notes 9.00 at weekend and I had an email confirmation of my booking - so not happy and went elsewhere -

Great visit as always. A couple of little things to bear in a mind. 1) reserved a table for 2 at 5pm on Friday, confirmation came through and said 2 people at 5pm. However I got a subsequent reminder email saying table at 2pm. I ring to check and you had the booking at 2pm, even though it should’ve been at 5pm. Not sure how it happened, but worth keeping an eye on. 2) beer menu - asked for a Brooklyn American Ale, but told you didn’t have it and they no longer make it! Which is fine. But you should remove it from your beer board and beer menu!! Pretty poor it’s still in both?!

We had a really great evening at Gorilla - the organisation for a Christmas meal of a large staff team (18) was really good - easy communication - helpful re dietary requirements . We had a great space to eat in with a super service from lovely staff. Easygoing / creative atmosphere Thanks you for such a great night

Thank you, we had one of our best work parties ever! The food was great and so to was the service. If you don't know what you want to drink tell the staff what you like and ask for a recommendation! You will not be disappointed.

Everything was so organised, and the service was very personalised. Tim who went through the orders with me was very helpful and friendly. The meal was fantastic, and everyone who attended the party really enjoyed their meal and had a great time.

Fantastic again. Thanks for looking after us all. Only slight criticism was lack of any vegetables with the gorgeous chicken and nduja potatoes - just needed a bit of greenery of some kind.
