Full Description
About us: GRUB is a husband and wife owned business, having started 9 years ago as a Latin American street food stall. Since then we have operated a number of venues including Fairfield Social Club, pop ups and our current venue GRUB. We have run a whole range of weddings, from the traditional to the totally alternative - Drag Queen celebrant? We've seen it all. What we offer: Every wedding booking has an event coordinator as standard, who can help you build your perfect day. We also work with fantastic freelance wedding managers, who can provide a more expansive service. Being an independent business, we can be really flexible on tailoring things to what suits you and your guests... whether that's having your favourite beer on the bar, or street food from a trip you've been on. Tell us your ideas and we'll try and accommodate! Where are we: We're on the edge of Manchester City Centre, 5 minutes from Victoria train station, so are close to a huge range of hotels and transport links to suit any budget.

Exactly what we wanted for a non-traditional day
The upstairs hall offers the perfect foundation for a great party, with awesome murals on the walls and a great vibe on decor and furniture. Then it's up to you, they're incredible flexible with any bits you want to add and make great recommendations on what has worked in the past with regards to decor and service. It was exactly what we wanted for a non-traditional wedding party and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Plus there are some ace spots for photos!

It was beyond our wildest dreams
We genuinely cannot thank you and your EXTRAORDINARY team enough for the truly magical day we had. We’re still processing and emotional but HONESTLY the day was faultless and we are so so grateful for all of your hard work. We can never thank you enough. It was beyond our wildest dreams.

We couldn't have asked for a better day
I just wanted to say thank you again for everything you guys did to it run as smoothly as it did. We couldn't have asked for a better day and that was helped by all your staff on the day being as wonderful as they are. For most of our guests, it was their first time in the building and everyone absolutely loved it! GRUB has always been one of our favourite places to visit in Manchester and will now hold a special place with us for the future.
