Eat and drink

We appreciate that there’s an enviable range of dining options in Manchester. Not just the cosmopolitan gourmet offerings of the city centre but closer to home in the famous Curry Mile: a row of spicy enticement. So it’s vote of confidence that both locals and guests regularly enjoy the Best Western Hallmark Hotel Manchester Willow Bank’s highly inventive modern European menu. To be fair we do provide an elegant contemporary stage to showcase the acclaimed cuisine. Our Gallery restaurant mixes neutral earth tones with playful bookshelf wallpaper and monochrome photographs of historic Manchester and its iconic personalities.

You’ll find the likes of spiced lamb tagine, pan fried seabass fillet, Teriyaki salmon and mushroom ravioli, alongside beer battered local fish and chips, Kansas style bbq glazed spare ribs, 10oz ribeye steaks and our signature burgers. If you’ve any room left, you can try our refreshing lemon tart with clotted cream or our banana split sundae with sticky toffee fudge ice cream and whipped cream. 

For less substantial options try some of lighter bites in the coolly refurbished Enigma Bar.
