Rosylee Tearooms is the newest addition to Manchester’s Northern Quarter. A quaint mix of Edwardian and Georgian decor with a modern, industrial twist.

I recently visited Rosylee for lunch and I can honestly say that there wasn’t a burger or even a hint of pulled pork in sight. Rosylee is an elegantly presented cafe, restaurant & cocktail bar that flows seamlessly between the three offerings.


The outside space, much lacking across the NQ, should see Rosylee bustle in the sun (tho as I write this it’s raining which is a shame.) The lobby / entrance area to this large industrial meets Parisian space is set out for the afternoon coffee drinkers and Wi-Fi users. It’s worth noting however that we avoided the coffee on account of the price, at £3.50 for a Latte we stuck with the sparkling water.

Moving on from the cafe we located ourselves in the rather splendid restaurant area. Great interior design, botanical illustration and a firm attention to detail makes for a lovely space to enjoy dinner. The food was fantastic and the staff serving were on hand at a moments notice.



The back of the space holds a small cocktail bar area which we didn’t partake in, but will en-devour too as the drinks coming out of there looked fantastic.

Overall I think Rosylee is a great addition to the Northern Quarter. A genuinly good restaurant serving fantastic food for formal or in-formal occasions. Perfect for an NQ date and defiantly worth checking out.
