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.

    Awful experience yesterday for my partners birthday (Friday lunchtime). The customer service from start to finish was horrendous. It wasn’t even busy and we weren’t asked how our food was whether we needed anything else, we weren’t asked whether we needed another drink. The waitress’ stood on their phones ignoring myself and other customers which resulted in people having to go up to the girls requesting bills, food and drinks. Awful experience and I won’t be returning again. Shame as I have been before and had good experiences but this was some of the worst quality customer service I have ever had.

    Really enjoyed the chips and gravy with cheese - like the Canadian “poutine”. Disappointed at the lack of decent beer - only one proper ale and that was off!

    To be brought to your table and not told that pizza's are unavailable. We all decide to get pizza and then get told its not an option. No apology and nothing given as a gesture of goodwill. Waitress outside at one point stroking a cat and no sight of hands being washed. Disgraceful will not be returning.

    Booked Dukes92 to catch up with friend for Twixmas get together. As always the staff at Dukes92 were incredibly friendly and helpful. Whilst the restaurant was not busy the ambiance was good. We both chose burgers which were as described. Service was efficient and staff attentive but not intrusive. Well done Dukes92 on maintaining excellent service in these challenging times.

    Simply fantastic, I had reserved a table for 8 so we where located in a glass sliding door private dnd if the restaurant. Each attendee enjoyed themselves. The level of detail and attention from the young lady who served us and looked after us was Amazing and she deserves a massive’Thank You’ All in a wonderful time, food drinks and ambience

    Honestly, The chicken burgers were really dry. Some were even burnt! They took so long with our order (I’m talking 30 mins) and they brought the wine to the table very unceremoniously, after they forgot to bring it out in the first place.

    The food was very good however the hostess lacked people skills and hospitality acumen. We arrived to be asked to walk across the bar to the front desk, waited good minute or two before anyone even noticed we were there. We had last few minute cancellations due to illness which is to be expected this time of year hence the deposit buffer Dukes takes from group bookings, but we were made to feel a little awkward for inconveniencing the hostess with such news. She seemed in some sort of mood which isn’t acceptable if you’re in a hospitality front facing role. She then asked a waitress to walk us back to where we originally entered to be seated. She then came with our pre order sheet and barked at us to cross out anyone who hasn’t turned up which we did. Despite that 3 extra deserts that were cancelled turned up to be turned away. All the rest of the food arrived as per the order form so why extra deserts?! The table waitress was lovely so no issues there but when it came to paying we asked another waitress for a card machine she came with it and then walked off because we were splitting the payment, our original waitress came and sorted it. Food was 5/5 but the service could be better.
