About The V & A Restaurant and Lounge
Casual dining in the city centre
V&A Restaurant and Lounge is based in the Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel. The restaurant overlooks the River Irwell and is a great spot for a relaxed brasserie-style meal, special business lunch or afternoon tea with friends. On milder days you can dine outside by the waterside.
V&A serves elegantly presented international food with signature cocktails and speciality desserts. The lounge bar is filled with cosy sofas, so is ideal for a pre or post-dinner drink. The bar’s exposed brickwork and cast iron pillars are a nod to the history of the hotel, which was once a Victorian warehouse.
With its wood-beamed ceilings and beautiful views, the V&A is a classy and comfortable dining spot to unwind in.
Stylish international food
The V&A has restaurant, bar and afternoon tea menus. Although the restaurant menu is international in theme, you’ll find the best of British flavours at its heart. Choices can change but sample dishes might include Braised Feather Blade of Beef, Roasted Rolled Cod and Vegetable Shepherd’s Pie. Desserts include playful choices like Popcorn Panna Cotta.
The bar food menu offers sharing platters and a range of classic, hearty pub snacks. There’s also a wide variety of wines, beers and speciality cocktails.
Afternoon tea is served in the lounge. This includes a selection of sandwiches, delicious pastries and freshly baked scones, plus optional champagne. You can even opt for a Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea, which might be perfect for dad on his birthday.
