Fresh. Seasonal. Locally Sourced. Homemade. British Food.

Manchester. This is the place.

“A walk along the banks of the Bridgewater Canal is a journey to the past and a glimpse into the future. Every stretch of the waterway has a story to tell us about human ingenuity, endurance and events that shaped both Salford and the world.”


1761 Restaurant pays homage to Manchester’s great past. Drawing inspiration from the Industrial revolution and that warm Mancunian spirit which it so notably represents.

We offer brunch, lunch, dinner & drinks with the sole aim of giving a fantastically British experience. Guests can enjoy our modern take on classic British dishes in luxurious old style glamour.

After dinner why not head down to Lily’s bar and enjoy a cocktail or a glass of champagne.
