Rendition MCR

I recently visited Rendition, a newly revived restaurant and bar in central Manchester. Located in Deansgate, this intimate setting offers a variety of small plates, cocktails and other beverages. With their luxury but rustic decor, as well as a live band, this is definitely a place to visit!


Thursdays are the new Friday so every Thursday, Rendition offers 3 small plates for £15 as well as a bottle or wine for £15. 

We opted to share 6 dishes between us, which I highly recommend, as I couldn’t choose just 3 for myself! We decided on:
- slider burgers
- pork belly with a BBQ beer sauce and treacle glaze
- 28 day aged rump steak
- whipped goats cheese
- tenderstem broccoli 
- Korean bbq fried chicken

Here’s my favourites:

First things first, the steak. Wow. This was honestly cooked to perfection and the meat tasted really succulent. It was served with a caramel peppercorn sauce which complemented the dish perfectly. This is a must order if you like steak.

I am always wary about ordering burgers in a restaurant because I have been disappointed so many times so I was very pleasantly surprised with these. The burger literally melts in your mouth and the sauce was delicious. 

I loved the presentation of this too - the little ‘R’ stamp on the burgers as well as the branded paper napkin just ticked all of the boxes for me! Love.

I really wasn’t sure what to expect but I love anything goats cheese so I knew it was definitely a dish I wanted to try! This had the consistency of like a hummus but was really creamy and smooth. It was served with dates and sunflower seeds, as well as some toasted flatbread. 

The dates were honestly a game changer. I’d never have thought to mix the two but wow, it was absolutely out of this world. I think this was definitely one of the best things I’ve tried in quite a while so you 100% have to try this if you go. 

Finally, the pork belly. Yum. This was served in a bbq beer sauce with a treacle drizzle. This was heavenly. The pork fell apart as you ate it and I absolutely adored the sauce, to the point I was mopping up the excess with my steak and also the flatbread! Absolutely delicious.


We also tried some of their brand new cocktails. I opted for ‘The Dance’ which was amazing, consisting of vanilla vodka, strawberry and bubblegum syrup. Served with dry ice in a science flask-style bottle, this had the mixture of taste and presentation/wow factor that you want from a cocktail. The bubblegum was really strong as an after taste, which was delicious! 

The ‘Pink Margarita’ was a twist on a classic and was El Tequileno Tequila and Lime mixed with Chambord to add the pretty pink colour.

Thank you so much to Rendition for having me - the service, food and drinks were faultless.
