About Pier Eight at The Lowry
Pier Eight is The Lowry’s stylish restaurant and bar, overlooking the stunning waterside setting of Salford Quays and MediaCityUK.
Serving fresh, British flavours and seasonal ingredients, it is the perfect setting for a relaxed lunch, pre-show meal or a special occasion. If you’re looking for a more casual dining experience, we also offer a full bar menu in the Pier Eight Bar.
"My ethos on cooking has always been about sourcing the best local and seasonal ingredients from the great suppliers on our doorstep across Lancashire and Cheshire. The menu focuses on simple dishes and flavour pairings, using ingredients and produce that shine in their own right."

Service very prompt and efficient. Whilst the food we had was lovely, the veg was minimal which I never understand in a restaurant. Nice buzzing atmosphere.
Excellent food service and venue
A big thank you to the waiting staff at your restaurant. Due to an accident on the motorway we were delayed arriving, however we were made to feel very welcome and our food order was delivered incredibly quickly to ensure we didn’t miss the start of the show.
Nice place, lovely servers. Unfortunately, the waitress took down the wrong choice so we had chicken instead of fish. The pigeon was meant to.be m/rare but was so overcooked it was like rubber. Place was so busy that we just got on with it. Staff were too busy with a large party.
Had a lovely meal in pleasant surroundings. The service was excellent . We will return and recommend Pier EIght to friends .
Excellent meal & service. Would highly recommend.
We felt very pleased / satisfied with the attitude of the staff who were very gracious & attentive towards us during our visit. The food was delicious well presented & good value for money. We will certainly dine in this Restaurant in the future .
Really enjoyed the pre theatre meal. Nice clean well laid out restaurant with fabulous views. The staff were polite, helpful and impressed by the service. The food was delicious and will definitely be going again.
We all had the lamb. It was absolutely delicious
Excellent meal handled brilliantly by our waitress. Nice location and perfect place for pre-show dinner. Only thing I would suggest is that you can't really eat the cheese plate in the interval as its too short!!
Great food and prompt professional service. We’ll be back!
Fabulous! The food was certainly on the same level as any high end restaurant. I’ve e mailed you for the Christmas cheesecake recipe if at all possible, it was delicious!
The Perfect way to start an evening of enjoyment at the Lowry.
The service was very efficient and friendly .
Hi we had a great night at Pier 8 ...As always it lived up to expectations Stuart Willis
Our waitress was amazing. Only thing I would change is the amount of supplement fees. Just put the cost of the meal up for everyby £2. Nearly everything seemed to have a supplement. Having drinks at the interval at the same table was lovely and made us feel special.
Service was really good Good amazing And a really good price Thoroughly enjoyed my evening Thank you
Staff very pleasant and helpful. Lovely pre theatre meal, we’ll be back.
The service was very efficient, even a little too quick . The menu was small but all good options, the supplements for a few options i thought were a little overpriced
The lamb was very tough & I was very disappointed, although the cheese soufflé was delicious.We ordered coffees for the interval, not realising there wasn’t an interval. The staff should have been aware of that fact and advised us accordingly.
1st class meal and service. Memorable pre theatre meal thanks.
We received our meal in good time for the concert.
Delicious 3 course Pre-Theatre meal for three enjoyed on Weds 5 December. Excellent Service and timing. Opted to have cafetière of coffee back at our table during the Show's Interval. So glad I decided to look at the individual Pier 8 site for booking on this occasion, as the link with The Lowry Theatre site displayed all times that day as 'fully booked! We shall definitely be returning to dine as all our experiences have been excellent.
Another lovely meal at Pier 8, the staff are so friendly and the food is spot on.
