The Social Cafe Reviews
"We've been hearing great things about The Social at Urbis for quite some time. First impressions are of a museum cafe, cold metal tables and wooden chairs nodding more towards a canteen than the quality restaurant you'll actually turn out to find. The staff are extremely friendly and the prices are amazingly low.
The menu has a strong local influence and they also offer Sunday Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding together with many other Daily Specials.
Drinks were also excellent value with many excellent Import Ales. You could quite easily visit The Social just for a drink with a beer menu this good. There were 11 good quality bottles of wine to choose from and a small cocktail menu that interestingly included a 'Manchester Tart'.
Given that The Social is surrounded by the MEN Arena, Victoria Station, The Printworks, Royal Exchange Theatre, the shops and of course, Urbis itself, there can't be many better places to grab a quick bite to eat or a good quality, great value for money meal." - RestaurantsOfManchester.com (Oct 2007)
