Description: New to West Didsbury’s Burton Road, The Rose Garden serves exciting contemporary British food created by owner and head Chef William Mills. It’s very much a family affair — William’s elder Brother Tom constructed the interior to a design created by their architect father, the restaurant’s striking visual appeal is complemented by professional but informal table service from William’s younger siblings.

“Great food and attentive service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

We saw that this was no. 1 on trip advisor for Manchester so thought we should visit. The restaurant deserves it's ratings - the food was excellent with good portions & unusual and interesting combinations -even the olives were delicious! Service was attentive but not rushed. The sticky toffee pudding with chocolate fondant centre has gone to the top of my husband's STP list.

“Outstanding in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

I booked a table at The Rose Garden for my birthday in January, with my boyfriend, mum and brother. I'd been intending on going but never got round to it. It was absolutely brilliant in every way. The waiter, Alex, was incredible, he had great passion for and knowledge of the menu. The food was outstanding, each course was cooked perfectly! Hats off to the chef! Even my 16 year old brother was happy- hard to do believe me! I'll be going back again that's for sure! Although it wasn't a full restaurant, the vibe was great! The Rose Garden have got it spot on, keep it up!

“Deserves the rave reviews!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

The food here is superb. The menu is interesting without being weird; someone in this place likes food! The service is attentive and friendly without being intrusive. The food is well presented and full of taste and texture; a great wine list. Given the quality of what you get the cost is very reasonable; we paid just under £70 for two including a bottle of decent wine. On a Tuesday evening we didn't have to cook.

“Excellent food and choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

We had to try this restaurant as we were in the area overnight. We both ate from the a-la-carte menu. My partner is vegetarian and she even had a choice of starters and mains. The food was really tasty, mouthwatering, and decent but not huge portions. Beautifully presented too. The staff were perfect and unobtrusive, but friendly. We ate beetroot ravioli, bean cassoulet, pigeon and venison, followed by a cheeseplate to share. Everything was perfect with the food - approaching Michelin star quality. It is quite a small place and with all the excited chattering going on, it was quite noisy, but that's no bad thing, as everyone was enjoying themselves, and the food. We'd definitely go back and try some more !

“wonderful food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Great well presented food which does'nt break the bank. Fixed menu was around £16 for 3 courses. Wide varied menu from scallops, oysters, sea bass, to roast beef and much more. Nice attentive staff. 10/10 all round.
