“Fully recommended for a pre theatre meal
Recently updated , and expanded , fully recommended for a pretheatre meal , limited choice , but all the choices are
superb with spot service , exceeded our expectations.”

Visited Pier Eight last night for pre theatre meal and is was absolutely lovely.
The staff were really really good and very helpful and the food was first class.
“Belly pork for starter was delicious and Cod for main course also delicious
We then waited for the interval were we finished off with cheeses and biscuits.
Give it a try if you are visiting the Lowry or Media city.

Pre theatre Meal
“Good, Very Good and Excellent Food (pan fried cod and the risotto) were excellent. Deserts served during the interval at our restaurant table together with drinks…….. No standing around here jostling shoulders trying to juggle stuff in your hands
Downside is it is a tad expensive but when you get what you pay for and everyone enjoys the evening there are no complaints…. Finally our waitress was first class in conversation and service. A must to return to….well done The Lowry a steal on the Manchester theatres.”

“Truly delicious!”

Manchester's Finest

“Pier Eight is a real gem, a restaurant which Salford can be very proud of. If you are heading to the theatre, the Lowry shopping outlet, Media City or even if you live on the Quays, it is well worth heading into The Lowry for some quality food in lovely surroundings.” Read more on their website.

“Absolutely stunning.”


“Dinner-and-a-show has long been the perfect date night combo. Pier Eight is brilliant for theatre-type date nights and those looking for everything under one roof.” Read more on their website.
