…and it can all be done all from the comfort of your own home!

The panellists would sample and review The Lowry Hotel’s newest @HOME dishes.

The River Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel are ideally after feedback on its new @HOME Packages, which include all the ingredients and instructions to cook some delicious restaurant-quality meals at home.

With absolutely no experience needed, simple food-loving Mancs are now being encouraged to submit their applications to join the new review panel.

Five-star dining from the AA rosette River Restaurant from the comfort of your own home, sign me up!

@HOME by The Lowry is a brand new dining concept spurred on by the March lockdown, which allows customers to enjoy five-star food at home via a click-and-collect service.

The packages include Afternoon Tea, Five-Course Menus and even a Roast Dinner option (see our review of this one here!).

Five applicants will be chosen in total to sit on the hotel’s first-ever panel, and each will receive personalised @HOME packages monthly – curated by their award-winning Executive Head Chef.

Successful applicants will get to taste a number of different dishes, meals and wines between November & December – with the expectation the role will continue into 2021.

There will also be exclusive hotel member benefits for the lucky applicants, including a complimentary overnight stay at The Lowry Hotel.

The role requires dishes to be finished off at home using the ingredients provided and simply rate them using the hashtag #LowryLifeatHome on either Instagram or Twitter – sounds like a gruelling job…

Dave Ashton – Executive Head Chef at The Lowry Hotel’s River Restaurant – said:


“We’ve been hard at work in the kitchen, developing and testing a five-star dining experience which people can enjoy at home.

“We have successfully launched our @HOME afternoon tea and Sunday roast service, but now we need your help to tell us what you think of our new deluxe dining package and menu changes.

“Manchester’s food scene is constantly growing, and we need people like you, who love good food, to tell us what you think of our new menu and help make it even more delicious. Our dining package changes on a monthly basis, so you will sample five different dishes each month paired with a bottle of wine for you and your lucky plus one.

“We look forward to hearing your thoughts and evolving the menu for the following month based on your feedback.”


Applications will be accepted until Sunday 8th November and the 5 winners will be chosen by a panel of judges from The Lowry Hotel.
