Dukes 92 was originally a stable block for the horses delivering foods off barges to the Merchants warehouse opposite. From these humble begininngs the building now houses Manchester's original bar and grill which has been refurbished and extended three times since its opening in 1991 the space today is informal and airy with the buildings heritage being reflected in a subtle blend of antique furniture and modern fixed seating.
With its most recent refurbishment Dukes can now properly call itself a venue with two bars, three private events spaces, a grill restaurant, excellent smoking facilities, canalside terrace and balcony overlooking the canal basin. Dukes continued appeal relies on its ability to transform from a relaxed, family friendly environment by day to a vibrant and stylish bar and grill by night.
The space has been extended and refurbished since its opening in 1991 and inside its interior combines contemporary features and its trademark antique furniture.

I came to celebrate my daughters birthday the bar staff and food were fabulous . With very uncertain times your staff are both professional and patient with the many questions from customers concerning the possible closure. I will defiantly be back once things calm down .

Bland food, slow service, lots of gossiping staff members standing around and totally ignoring guests.
Totally overrated- style over substance.

I normally enjoy going to Dukes and go several time’s a year- however my order was wrong and so my friends ate without me - what came out was rushed the rice was partially cooked the prawns were part raw and I would’ve been unsure about the sauce that accompanied regardless. We asked for tap water which never came and ended up ordering another round of soft drinks within the wait. So £20 for a rushed, undercooked main and 3 lime and sodas seemed steep.

I get mistakes but there was no compensation and barely an apology.

We went to Duke’s on a Saturday night. It was busy, noisy and with a great ambiance. There were food options to suit everyone, you could choose more expensive options or just have salads, bruchettas, or sharing boards. We were a little rushed but then I’m not sure it’s the kind of restaurant I would want to stay and linger over food. It’s a bustling, lively, great place for pre-bar or club food. Enjoyed it

Me and my mam went for food and both really enjoyed our food - probably the best I have had in Manchester. I 1000% recommended the Chicken & Coconut noodle bowl it was full of flavour and unexpectedly one of the best meals I have had. Definitely coming back to try other meals on the menu.

Lovely location and interior. Some of the food we ordered looked good value for money. I think the flat bread was over priced and the share board was very small, considering it was supposed to be for2-3 persons.

Amazing food, I had the chick roast and it was lovely. Service was extremely poor, waited 20mins to get our drink order taken and then waited 40mins once everyone had finished their main for the table to be cleared and offer a dessert menu. If it was just based on service I wouldn't go again.

We were a little early for our reservation and the staff were very accommodating by seating us at a table for drinks until our table was ready. Great selection of food at a reasonable price with portion sizes good. Staff attentive and friendly. Would go again.

Me and my friend went to Dukes 92 as a girl twosome. The waiters were lovely and even had a joke with us about the fact we were the only none couple in there as it was Valentines Weekend! Both the waiters who assisted us had a brilliant sense of humour and filmed us whilst we tried oysters, (never again might I add), but everything else was lovely. We’ll definitely be back! X

I booked a table at Dukes for a date, and it was good. Both me and my boyfriend had a good time. The food was tasty and arrived fast. It is a lively place, with a great atmosphere. It was too noisy, but that is the norm unfortunately.

Had a valentines meal here with my boyfriend and I can honestly say it was the best meal I’ve ever had. The food was beyond perfect, I highly recommend the pork belly it genuinely melts in the mouth and the mash was divine. The pornstar martinis were lovely too and the service was really fast with the waitress (I think her name was Jess) being really friendly. Would 1000% come here again, my new favourite spot.

I had a lovely dining experience at Dukes 92, the food was amazing and priced appropriately. They had live music so there was a lovely atmosphere. The service was okay we did wait 20 minutes for a drink however the food quality out-weighed this.

A lovely place to eat .... nice vibe, great decor and beautifully presented tasty food. Service was a little slow waiting for starters but it was busy and we weren’t in a rush so it wasn’t a problem. Complimentary bread would be an idea when you are waiting more than half an hour.

Always liked dukes but the service was so bad. The female waitress did notbwant to be there, had an attitude problem.

Too way to long for the food despite there being not that many people in the eatin area. Within the 2.5 hours i was there not once did staff ask if we wanted another drink however walked past our table of empty glasses. Food was good but the service let it down massively, so would not recommend. Shame really.

The food was very good. However the service was awful. We waited 30minutes to even be offered a drink. We ordered our food at the same time. The food arrived and it was very good. We were never asked if all was ok or offered another drink and our glasses were empty for over 30minutes. We would have had a dessert however no one ever came to clear out plates we waited that long we just paid and left. Seemed like a really good place but there was no customer service.
