Critics Review
Review by Manchester Confidential's Mark Garner
19.5/20
The food here is classic French with tickles, the tickles are only there to put a couple of fingers up to the new wave chemists. You would be happy taking dinner on a tray right there. The people serving you are outstanding. The wine list sets your hair on end. I mean, a 1964 Dom Perignon? This is Ian Fleming territory. Michael Broadbent scored the year with five stars. There are over 1000 ‘bins’. Arguably this is the best for miles and miles, representing a staggering £3m investment. Simon Radley has been chef for over eleven years with a couple of short breaks in between. He and Mark Bevan, the manager, run the place with passion, verve and a clarity of purpose that had Gordo in mind of some of the best chateaux in France in their heyday of the eighties.

An absolutely stunning meal for my husband's 30th birthday. Our sommelier Boris was fantastic and knew so much about the wines we were having alongside our amazing tasting menu. As a vegetarian, I was super excited to see how a menu would be put together to meet my needs and still be incredible - and it was, very closely to the main tasting menu's flavours! The welcome was warm, the class was high and the restaurant and bar were inviting. Loved it.

Had a lovely meal as usual and our favourite restaurant and up there with the top London restaurants. Our favourite down there is Le Gavroche and enjoy both equally. No problem with anything. Feel sorry for the kitchen dog—a couple of clam shells returned. Many thanks again and will be back soon. Ken

My wife and I were dining to celebrate an anniversary and we both had the vegetarian taster menu with the wine package to accompany each dish. Every member of staff was very professional and attentive with the Sommelier, Derek, providing a depth of knowledge (without leaving us confused about each wine) and exceptional service. This was an outstanding culinary experience which exceed our expectations and we would thoroughly recommend dining at Simon Radley.

My wife and I spent the night at the hotel to celebrate her 60th birthday. From start to finish it was a great experience. Dinner was very special. The staff could not have been more helpful. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. The wine, the recommendation of the sommelier was a perfect compliment to the food. It made for a perfect birthday treat. Many thanks.

First time and really enjoyed the experience. The food was amazing and attention to detail and the staff were exemplary. I don’t really like rooms without windows and confined spaces and thought a top notch restaurant would have been better positioned within the hotel.
