Restaurants at Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport


Feast like a king

The cuisine at the Crowne Plaza transports you from East to West, from the traditional bites in the Irish bar, Callaghans, to the exotic fusion of Asian flavours in Sampans restaurant. There’s also the Lobby Bar that supplies modern British dishes for a familiar taste of home. The Crowne Plaza has created a ‘Grow Healthy Club’ for the little ones travelling with you. These dishes have minimal additives, reduced salt and sugar, and include lots of healthy veggies, such as the ‘Fabulous fish ‘n’ Chips’ - white fish goujons served with chunky chips, peas and ketchup, and the ‘Crispy Crumb Chicken Bites’ - British chicken breast served with salad, or chips and sweetcorn.

This stylish restaurant serves a contemporary English/ European menu, where the sleek lines and monochrome palette sets off the exquisitely presented food. One length of the Lobby Bar is lined with floor-to-ceiling veiled windows, while canvas prints of time-loved vinyls by legends such as The Who and The Rolling Stones, adorn the opposing, white wall. Take a seat at one of the minimalist tables to enjoy a traditional ‘Brit Bite’ such as a hot pork baguette with apple sauce, stuffing and potato roasties or a comforting portion of Welsh rarebit.

Come suppertime, savour one of the traditional British dishes, such as the Surrey Farm rump steak, with grilled mushrooms, tomatoes and chunky chips, or perhaps the thought of a steak & Spitfire ale pie with horseradish mash and peas is the one to charm your chops off? Round it all off with a helping of chocolate honeycomb cheesecake, or an impressive Beechdean vanilla & Cheshire toffee ice cream sundae. The menu at the Lobby Bar changes seasonally, so you can be sure to find your winter warmers or summer nibbles as the calendar dictates. Light meals are available from 9am from the Lobby Bar until 12.30am daily, although the full menu carries through from daytime into the evening.

Enjoy a relaxed start where you won’t have to rush out of bed for the most important meal of the day. Served until 10.30am during the week, and 11.30am at weekends, you can help yourself to any of the delights from the breakfast buffet. Whether you’re looking for a light continental start to set you up before your holiday, or a hearty English - maybe even both - you’ll find a vast variety of foodstuffs to choose from.

Sampans Restaurant

A bright, vivacious and sociable setting, Sampans’ colourful restaurant is the popular place to eat at the Crowne Plaza. With food inspired from seven Asian culinary hotspots - China, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam - these authentic pan-Asian dishes use only the freshest of ingredients. Turn up the heat with the spicy scallop, prawns & snapper curry, flavoured with cinnamon and coconut milk, or sample the Beef Rendang that melts in your mouth. This excellent representation of Asian cuisine is the craft of skilled Thai chefs, and is served by attentive and efficient staff. Opt for the shredded duck pancakes and learn a few tricks of the trade as your waiter shreds the meat for you at your table.
