Hawksmoor

Located in a late Victorian courthouse on Deansgate, next door to Spinningfields, their aim is to serve the best steaks in Manchester. The interior is true to the building and features lots of reclaimed materials from the era, including parquet flooring from a (different) courthouse, panelling from Birmingham’s Sandwell College and (well-cleaned) glazed bricks from a public lavatory in Liverpool.

As at all of their restaurants there’s £5 corkage every Monday and on Sundays there’s the roast beef that Observer Food Monthly named ‘Best Sunday Lunch in the UK’. For those needing respite from shopping or a post-museum pick-me-up there is also a set menu available until 6pm and after 10pm Monday to Saturday and all day Sunday.
