The French Restaurant Manchester
The French Manchester

From the very early days of the hotel The French has been one of the most important restaurants in Manchester, and continues to maintain a special place in the hearts of Mancunians. In January 1974 The French was awarded one of Britain's first Michelin-stars, with the publication of the first guide. Since, many famous celebrities have dined in The French.

In the Beatles' early days when taking a trip to The Midland, a thoroughly proper doorman refused them access to the restaurant for being inappropriately dressed! More currently, celebrity royalty David and Victoria Beckham shared their first official date in The French.

In March of 2013 The French re-launched to The French by Simon Rogan. During Simon Rogan’s patronage, and with Manchester-born Adam Reid as Head Chef, the restaurant was awarded copious prestigious accolades including 4 AA Rosettes.

 In November 2016, following the end of Simon Rogan and The Midland’s successful three-year partnership, Head Chef and Great British Menu 2016 winner, Adam Reid, re-established the restaurant as Adam Reid at The French .
