Indulge in Fine Dining

Pier Eight is The Lowry’s stylish restaurant and bar, overlooking the stunning waterside setting of Salford Quays and MediaCityUK. 

Serving fresh, British flavours and seasonal ingredients, it is the perfect setting for a relaxed lunch, pre-show meal or a special occasion. If you’re looking for a more casual dining experience, we also offer a full bar menu in the Pier Eight Bar.

The menu focuses on simple dishes and flavour pairings, using ingredients and produce that shine in their own right.” Oliver Thomas, Executive Head Chef
