Grafene Restaurant Manchester
Grafene Manchester

Nearly 10 years ago, Paul and Kathryn Roden opened the four-star Losehill House Hotel and Spa near the village of Hope in the Peak District. In 2016, they decided they wanted to replicate the success and bring those relaxing drinking and dining experiences from the country to the city.

The island bar serves vintage Champagne, local beers and scientifically-inspired cocktails which pay a nod to graphene, the Manchester innovation from which the venue takes its name.

Under the direction of one of the region’s most celebrated mixologists, Bar Manager Asa Cann, formerly of Quill, the creative drinks complement a superb wine list and the introduction into Manchester of the Pommery Champagne label, alongside local artisan craft beers and cocktails.

With private booths and a big bar space, Grafene is a relaxed, unstuffy atmosphere with two intimate private dining areas, which specialise in wine tasting, either as an accompaniment to the daily changing restaurant menu, or as a dedicated activity, tailored to each party.

The interior of the venue is complemented by an al-fresco area on the thoroughfare between King Street and Chapel Walks.

So why call it Grafene?: “We are inspired by the world’s first 2D material, Graphene, first isolated at Manchester University.

“Grafene is our food and drink interpretation of this exciting new chapter in Manchester’s rich history, and of the excitement and energy there is around its possibilities for science and technology ", said owner Paul Roden.

Grafene's restaurant offers a modern take on fine British dining, offering quality throughout with Executive Chef Darren Goodwin's and head chef Stephen Moore's eclectic menu from breakfast through to dinner comprising a daily changing market-based a la carte, a seven-course taster menu, an Inka Grill menu, small plate options and Afternoon Tea, all sourced from non-GM local or artisan suppliers. An open pastry kitchen in the heart of the restaurant offers a visual and entertaining experience.

But Grafene is anything but formal and you can call in for a relaxed brunch, freshly baked bar snacks whilst catching up with friends or colleagues, or just stop by to try one of the experimental cocktails at the bar.

Wine Tasting in Manchester


Pommery Champagne Meal


Discover more about wine at Grafene’s incredibly relaxed monthly wine tasting evenings where you can enjoy a three course meal, prepared specially for each event, whilst learning about a wine specifically paired with each dish.

The casual format of the night makes it a great opportunity to catch up with friends whilst getting to know more about the best vineyards and wines from around the world.

On November 1st, Pommery host the evening, talking you through a selection of Champagnes and, most importantly, pouring the wine.

Champagne Pommery is located in Reims in the Champagne region of France. The Champagne House was founded as Pommery & Greno in 1858 by Alexandre Louis Pommery and Narcisse Greno. Alexandre's widow, Louise Pommery dedicated the Company to Champagne production soon becoming one of the region's largest Champagne brands.

In 1874 Madame Pommery, affectionately nicknamed "la Dame aux Roses" (the Lady of the Roses) created the first vintage "brut" in the history of Champagne. Today this revolutionary dry style is now the standard in Champagne.

Tickets for the meal, cost £45 per person.

Grafene Reviews

"Manchester is the home of Graphene, the two-dimensional, atomic-scale, honey-comb lattice carbon material, which was first isolated at the University of Manchester in 2004. And whilst Paul and Kathryn Roden may not have any relation to the ground-breaking scientists, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, their restaurant in the former Brasserie Blanc unit, just off King Street, pays more than a nod to the scientific discovery in not just its name and honey-comb furnishings, but with a playful menu that should keep any lab technician happy." ~ Restaurants Of Manchester, September 2016
