The Refinery Spinningfields


Already boasting 2 London spots, The Refinery is a destination that has made its name off the back of stunning fare and even more delightful cocktails. Flushed with kitsch cocktails and inventive mixes, guests to The Refinery at the XYZ Building (once the Cotton), will be able to indulge in crafted mixology in a space of British, magnetic design.

From replenishing breakfasts through to power business lunches, late-night dinners, cocktails, masterclasses and pop-ups, the restaurant and bar is an all-day escape for Manchester’s most discerning drinkers and diners.

Spread across one beautifully designed floor, fronted by floor-to-ceiling windows, the space has been carved into domestic zones including a bar and casual dining area, a restaurant and a cornered off lounge separated by statement screens to give an air of exclusivity. As with all of the Drake & Morgan collection, it’s the finishing touches that make the difference. Exuding an industrial sophistication, feature lighting and touches of colour and texture throughout are complemented by a carefully curated range of home and lifestyle wares. An outdoor terrace, accessorised with cosy blankets and hot water bottles, is perfect for people-watching.

The Refinery Spinningfields keeps cocktails above the standards of even the most demanding connoisseurs, serving up seasonally inspired concoctions influenced by the latest global trends.  Small plates and mezze boards, ideal to share, are available whilst larger mains – served from lunch to late – come in the form of beautiful burgers such as the buttermilk chicken burger or Wagyu beef burger. Superfood salads and classics such as hot smoked salmon with beetroot, greek yoghurt & horesradish; lemon chicken with sweet potato & caramelised onion; and braised beef shin with polenta are just a few examples of the dishes diners can expect to find. Those with a sweet tooth can indulge in a selection of moreish puddings handmade daily.
