When it first opened as ‘Rosylee Tearooms’ the potential was there but I got the feeling that they didn’t quite know what they wanted to be. Now under the guidance of staunch Manchester chef, Rob Owen Brown, if my recent visit is anything to go by, the newly named ‘Rosylee Restaurant & Lounge’ has found its feet.
Taking a break from Christmas shopping, we visited for a late lunch. A few people were tucking into the Afternoon Tea, which looked good. As for our food, it was all good. Rosylee is definitely a place we will be returning to in 2015.
