We were visiting Manchester and looking for a decent Sunday roast, away from the mediocrity of chains/gastro pubs, so after a bit of online searching blind booked Trof. We were not disappointed. Delicious food and a great vibe - very trendy but friendly. Only minor criticism, since you asked... I was not offered a choice of tonic with my Hendricks and didn't get the whole bottle - tonic that is, not gin. Maybe Trof only carries standard tonic and then rations it out or maybe I am just too middle class / middle aged for my own good. Anyway, at least I got cucumber : )

When we arrived the bar had people in it but wasn't packed to capacity. We were seated and waited 15mins to be given a menu, at that point we ordered drinks with the waitress but apparently she forgot to enter them in the system so they didn't get made, another 15 mins went by before drinks arrived. We then ordered 4 Sunday Roast dinners that took 50 mins to arrive after the staff were prompted again. 2 of the meals were cold. I complained and they were re-heated. The next table to us also complained as their starter and mail courses arrived at the same time. The service was a shambles, the food was substandard. I have been to Troff several times before and never known it be this bad. I wont be going again.

Food itself was fine but despite reserving we were placed right beside the door to the point people were tripping over my chair leaving. We asked could we be moved as several other people had been moved but were told we couldn't.

Hi Aiden, I'm sorry you weren't happy with your table. Unfortunately we get very busy on Sundays and it isn't always possible to move folks to another table. I apologise that our staff were unable to help you on this occasion. I will make sure in future that were we can customers with reservations are seated elsewhere. If you do make a reservation with us again, which I hope you do, let us know in the requests where you would like to be seated and we will look after you. Thanks once again for your review, I hope you will give us another try. Thanks Chris

I posted this to the Trof Facebook page as I was thoroughly disappointed with my experience: Just been for my birthday meal. I'd booked a month in advance and had no problem doing so. We arrived and just got shown upstairs. We were a little early as our booking was at three and we were there around ten to, however we were sat until quarter past and had to go get our own menus. we ordered around half past, and it was well over an hours wait until our main courses came. To be fair we got a 'sorry for the wait' but that was it. The food was ok but our whole group felt that you were stingy with the gravy. We finished our food, and had a wait for dessert. We ordered dessert, and when it was brought to us (after 40 minutes) there was a dessert missing, which we then had to wait a further 15 minutes for. Again it took a while for us to get the bill. Once we were finally paying, I enquired if there had been any issues. My response was a shrug and a 'its been busy' and with no apology whatsoever. We were there approximately three hours which is ridiculous for a 2 course meal. The restaurant did not appear to be at full capacity for the duration either. What was once a reliable place for a great meal is now a place I'd be very reluctant to visit again due to the slow service, but more so the staff obviously not caring about our experience.
