What they say:
Pier Eight will provide a unique and dynamic destination for both city dwellers and pre-theatre diners, as well those looking for a relaxed dining experience around MediaCityUK. The new space will seat a total number of 300 covers, serving two modern British menus including a casual dining bar menu and formal menu within the restaurant. The restaurant takes influence from northern European design, with a calming colour palette and range of delicate textures and design details. Seating styles vary from contemporary armchairs to long dining tables.
What we say:
Pier Eight is a £3million extension to The Lowry that looks to be a super-swanky dining spot in the heart of MediaCityUK. Head down and tuck into a menu packed full with local flavours. And if you really want to go all out when dining, you can even book yourself a space at the special 'chef's table' in the kitchen! Here, from front row seats, watch on as your gourmet cuisine is rustled up by the talents folks working the grills, pots and pans. Following your meal, venture out into the shipping container extension, post yourself up at the bar and take in the cracking views of the Manchester ship canal from the terrace areas.
