Current Comments

Below are the latest comments from our members who have visted this restaurant.

" note that the hotel insists on 24 hours notice even for lunch bookings "
Mr Clark of Appleby-In-Westmorland  24 May 2012

" have stayed at gisborough hall on a few occasions over the last twelve months and have eaten in the hotel restaurant. the food has been consistantly good and the choice of items more than sufficient whilst the service is friendly if occasionally a little slow. The ambience is great and the views over the North Yorkshire countryside from the restaurant are stunning. I would recommend both the hotel and the restaurant highly "
Mr Shaffner of Leeds  20 May 2012

" Great food and excellent, friendly service. The best meal out I have had in a while. "
Mr Barlow of Ellesmere Port  9 March 2012

" Lovely meal. Nicely cooked, well presented, attentive service and great pianist during the meal. Highly recommended and will visit again. "
Mr Melling of CHORLEY  27 December 2011

" This is a superb restraurant. Food and presentation always excellent. Staff friendly and professional as you would expect in a country house hotel of this standard. Probably the best in the area. "
Mr Eland of Preston  17 July 2011

" When we went it had been refurbished and very tastefully too. The waitress was attentive and the food divine. The menu was all so tempting it was difficult to make a choice so we will be going back to work our way through it. "
Miss Wood of BLACKBURN  4 May 2011

" A thoroughly enjoyable evening. We were looked after from the second we walked in, and the food was delicious. Highly recommended. "
Miss Gent of WIGAN  8 April 2011

" No chance to eat at this place as they refused to accept the Hi-Life card and denied all knowledge of any liason with the Hi-Life company despite me shewing them details on the web site. "
Mr Forsyth of Chesham  10 February 2011

" Very nice eating place within a short distace of my home. The staff were very attentive & friendly. We will certainly return again. "
Mr Kincey of ELLESMERE PORT  4 November 2010

" Having reserved a table via the hotel´s own website, and despite receiving an automated confirmation of same, I took the unusual step of emailing the restaurant directly just to ensure my booking was ok. A senior staff member confirmed it was. I was therefore disappointed, embarrassed and slightly annoyed upon arrival no reservation existed for us in the restaurant´s own handwritten diary. Nevertheless, tables were available and an apology was offered once I´d shown the head waiter the email exchange I´d had with his boss earlier in the week. We deliberated for some time before finally placing our order. Starters duly arrived and were very nicely presented. All 4 of us chose differently but we all agreed they were delicious. Main course next and again, presentation was a joy to behold. Two of our party felt the lamb and calf liver could have been cooked a little less and I felt the 21 day aged Aberdeen Angus burger, whilst nice, came out second best to a near identical offering I´d had 24 hours earlier on the Albert Dock in Liverpool in less fancy surroundings. I´d also like to know via the menu when my burger is going to include cheese and bacon. Deserts became a rushed affair thanks to our last train departure looming. 3 of us ordered. Again, excellent presentation. My sticky toffee pudding was nice but not blow away fantastic. Food wise our party concluded whilst the presentation had been consistently excellent and the food had been nice, it wasn´t quite deserving of an excellent rating. Where this restaurant was let down, however, was the service, original booking issues aside. The waitress serving our bottle of Chilean Merlot did so without offering up the bottle first and without enquiring whether a tasting was desired. She also poured my glass first, ignoring the 3 ladies in my party. Jugs of tap water for the table took an age to arrive on both occasions we asked for them and the initial offering was poured into a mixture of red and white wine glasses. Upon arrival of the first two main courses to our table, a waiter approached and asked if everything was alright. Nobody had yet picked up their cutlery and two of my companions hadn´t even got their meals at this point. Most peculiar timing. Clearing the main course empties, our waitress proceeded to perilously balance 3 servings before nearly dropping the dirty cutlery. On our suggestion she left the final serving for someone else to clear. That person chose to ignore the finished side order dish! None of the above, in isolation, are major dining crimes but together served to demonstrate the little touches, often the only thing separating a nice dining experience from a truly great one, are missing at Signatures and with so many other restaurants available in Manchester, competition is rife. We also question the ambitions of a hotel restaurant serving burgers...surely something to serve as a bar snack than in the main restaurant itself. One final comment. Signatures were offering a competitively priced 2-3 course menu along with the à la carte, even though our dining time was a Saturday evening. So that gets a thumbs up too. "

" I can only give 3 stars for the Decor as it was being renovated when we arrived. Although we had booked and informed we were Hi-Life customers,the manager had not booked us in!! Luckily we were the only ones there(all night) and he remembered my ´phoning to book. The food was ok nothing special although the chips we had with the steak were )extremely salty. All in all though a decent meal for a decent price(£27 with Hi-Life for 3 courses each!) and I would recommend you try it out,especially towards the end of June when the renovations should be complete "
Mr Flanagan of Bury  6 June 2010

" A really delicious meal. Could not fault anything including the service. Definitely one of our favourites. "
Hi Life Member  17 March 2010

" excellent food each time we have dined there but let down slightly by limited choice. lovely restaurant but service can be slow if the hotel is busy. "
Mr Pearson of Manchester  27 February 2010
