The River RestaurantModern British
The River Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel is Manchester’s classic fine dining restaurant. Huge names that have run the kitchen include Marco Pierre White, while diners have included Jose Mourinho and Kylie.
Having recently undergone a major refurbishment, executive head chef Dave Ashton has revamped the menu with updated classics. Typical dishes could include Cheshire farm lamb rump with lamb fat carrot and braised rib, or venison loin with Lancashire blue, salsify, pear and dark chocolate sauce. There are some playful creations too, like whipped butter in the shape of tomatoes and a gin and lemon mousse in a lemon-shaped shell. The cocktail list is as refined as you’d expect from Manchester’s only five-star hotel.
