Description

Trof in the Northern Quarter is a Manchester staple and attracts clientele from all walks of life in Manchester. Although in the trendy hub of the Northern Quarter expect to see some after-work drinkers before the party really kicks off. With three floors and a smoking terrace, Trof has space in abundance and when full provides a great buzz that will keep all visitors well entertained.

Trof has a simple yet classic cocktail menu as well as a good range of beers and wines; a unique feature is however that they have their own beer and wine, branded Trof. This is a good feature for any bar and as it comes at a lower cost than your big breweries and adds an even more affordable alternative to the menu.

Trof Northern Quarter is a good venue for an evening of chilling with mates; the late license till 3am on Friday and Saturday also means you don’t have to leave too early and can party till late.

Trof - Restaurant Bar Review

Chilling at the end of Thomas Street is one of the Northern Quarter’s most loved bars: Trof. Having frequented the now-deceased Trof in Fallowfield in the past, I was looking forward to visiting the sister of my old friend and seeing how much...

Was very impressed with the food at Trof, and excellent service. We booked the Montana Lounge for a private party and were really well looked after, everything was ready and everyone was friendly. We had a great night and everyone there was hugely impressed with the quality of this place. Thanks to all at Trof! visited Trof Northern Quarter on 12 Aug 2017

We hired out the Montana Lounge at Trof NQ for a small get together of family and friends. The room was wonderful, the perfect size for about 20 people. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and were very quick to sort out any problems we had! All of our guests had a great time and they all enjoyed the selection of drinks and especially the food we ordered. We had ordered one of the buffets from their menu and it was all amazing; the quality and variety of the food was truly exceptional! Everyone (both veggies and meat eaters) were excellently catered for. All of our guests were impressed with the afternoon, with many still talking about it the next day! Overall, I would highly recommend using Trof NQ for events and also just as somewhere to go! visited Trof Northern Quarter on 02 Sep 2017

Where do I begin? The best toast dinner I've ever had. Coupled with my favourite beer on tap and a great DJ. We booked specifically as we only had a drink last time we were in Manchester and the food looked amazing. We were not disappointed. Wonderful service, lovely staff. visited Trof Northern Quarter on 28 May 2017

I've recently held two full day workshops at Trof. All the way through the booking process the staff were really helpful. On the day they assisted me in setting up when needed. The food on both days was amazing - and plenty of it. Bigger plates though please! One area for improvement - for hiring out rooms for training events like mine. I would have liked to have been able to pay a set price and have tea and coffee urns available so people could have helped themselves. Instead of ordering at the bar and adding to the tab which was a bit more time consuming. But overall super pleased with the location - so handy for parking, trains, buses etc. Really pleased with how helpful all the staff were. Would book another event there just for the food! Will hopefully be back for more workshops later in the year. visited Trof Northern Quarter on 21 Feb 2017

Got food poisoning from the smoked salmon, we know this because it was the only thing we both ate (from the same plate), it was the first (and last) thing we ate that day and started feeling ill within 30 mins. Called to warn Trof who were extremely apologetic, took my number, said they would tell the chef and call me back to arrange a meal on them (nice as that is all things considered would be better to get a refund and not eat there again!) but have yet to hear anything and that was a week ago. visited Trof Northern Quarter on 11 Feb 2017

When booking we asked for somewhere suitable for my dad who is hard of hearing. The table was in the middle of the room with tables all around us, for future it would be better to have a table that sits against a wall as he can then find a suitable spot to block the sound out. The food was lovely though and we all had a really nice time. visited Trof Northern Quarter on 04 Feb 2017

Very good! GOOD was amazing & staff were very friendly! The only problem we had was we waited about 15-20mins for dessert and had to go to the bar to ask for the bill! We though minus that it was amazing Christmas dinner and we'd choose you again 10 times over! Thank you! It's 3 days after and I feel like I'm only just getting over my food coma! visited Trof Northern Quarter on 18 Dec 2016

Staff were fantastic, food delicious. Only downside was the music was a little too loud when you are out for a meal, couldn't hear people talking. I know it was a Saturday night but we seemed to be the only table eating and it seemed it was more set up as a bar not a restaurant. visited Trof Northern Quarter on 12 Nov 2016

Nice upper room, however we got confused using the jukebox and it ended up playing a whole album by an artist we hadn't meant to select so that was the only annoying thing. visited Trof Northern Quarter on 29 Oct 2016

Reasonably pleasant but the salad was heavy on the green stuff and low on cheese/butternut squash. Also requested avocado instead of eggs and was charged an additional £1, which is a bit of a rip-off (but the avocado was tasty) visited Trof Northern Quarter on 27 Oct 2016

Amazing place to eat, the best in the Northern Quarter in my opinion! The Eggs Benedict with ham hock is insanely good! Very friendly staff, great atmosphere every day of the week.

Friendly and welcoming, Trof was buzzy and the daily specials all looked really good. They also had a good selection of ales behind the bar which instantly had me interested.
