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.

We came at 3.30 to claim the table booked earlier. I had told the guy at the door that my blind friend had a guide dog. He said we must sit at a specific table (rather dark) where the dog would be out of the way. In fact when we arrived that table was taken and the new person on the door said we could sit where we wanted as there was no one in. I wondered why the original guy was so pernikity ? It made us feel uncomfortable. All other staff were great.

If I could give Gorilla more than 5 stars, I would. Have always enjoyed the food in there and the service but this trip in particular was brilliant. Great food and the service - wow! Hostess actually organised a bottle of fizz as we were celebrating. Above and beyond! Will keep coming back for the food and great service.

Alice (Alice 2?) Was very attentive personable. Got the balance right between making sure we were okay without hassling us. Food was delicious and a good selection of drinks for reasonable prices!

Still the best bar and live music venue in Manchester. The staff are great, the food was fantastic and the ambiance is always top class. Highly recommended. :-)

Service was slightly slow but mainly because of a large party. Food was excellent but quite surprised at the lack of Aperol! Great atmosphere!

It was a little dark upstairs but apart from that it was great - our server (tall young guy) was v helpful and let us order margaritas which weren’t listed on the menu!

Had a great breakfast at Gorilla. Food was excellent, couldn’t fault it. However the coffee and the juice were too expensive for what they were - and the fact that the coffee came in a tiny tumbler rather than a teacup/mug.

Had a really lovely time. The food was amazing. We both had the chicken burger. I would highly recommend it, so tasty I could eat it again right now! We were given a booth table by the window, nice and cosy. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming, checked up on us to make sure everything was ok. The atmosphere was good, it was busy and buzzing. Can’t wait to come again!

Very slow for service, food and drink. The full English was delicious and home made sausage was incredible. We were charged £5 for a bacon butty £1 per slice of toast, £1.50 per rash of bacon, the overall ‘butty’ was dry, poor and disappointing. This unfortunately dampened our experience as a group.

Fantastic early evening dinner at Gorilla, the staff were excellent, personable and engaging. We were lucky enough to get the open window table on a sunny evening - watching the world go by inside and outside - perfect setting.

Gorilla is reliably excellent. Book (its easy online) as it gets full pretty much every night. The Korean chicken burger is a thing of beauty.
