Chef Niall Keating will take on the restaurant site at Manchester’s Stock Exchange Hotel for a new concept this summer.

Keating, who earned two Michelin stars at The Dining Room at Whatley Manor Hotel and who is behind Lunar Restaurant in Staffordshire​, will open Tender at the Gary Neville-owned hotel in June.

Named after the care put into crafting each dish and with a nod to the heritage of the hotel, Tender will serve ‘gourmet food for everyday dining’ and will serve weekday brasserie lunch, a la carte dinner, afternoon teas, a special Sunday roast and chef’s table and special tasting menu, all created by Keating.

In addition to the main dining room will be 'The Bank', a private space for up to 12 guests.

The restaurant will be run by newly appointed general manager Tracy Harrison, who was previously worked at venues including The Midland, The Principal in York, and Macdonald Hotels and Resorts

“From when I first walked through the doors of the hotel into the dining room, I knew this was the place for me and that we could create something really special,” says Keating.

“I immediately felt connected to both Gary and Tracy Harrison, and I knew what I wanted to create at the hotel and restaurant. I want a space that feels vibrant, warm and energetic, that brings to life the history of the stock exchange roots of the hotel, while providing an upscale and comfortable brasserie dining experience.”

The hotel space has remained empty since the Schofield brothers closed their short-lived restaurant Stock Market Grill​ after less than six months in operation. Prior to that it was home to Tom Kerridge’s Bull & Bear​.

“We couldn’t be happier to be partnering with Niall Keating for Tender and bringing his culinary expertise to the hotel. His vision to create versatile and accessible dining options is exactly what we’ve been looking for, to allow everyone visiting Tender to find the right experience for them,” says Neville.

“We will also shortly be announcing a series of events and live music experiences, including a weekly music plan, within Tender, that will really bring the venue to life, making it the heart of Stock Exchange Hotel.”

Keating honed his skills in Michelin star restaurants around the world including Restaurant Sat Bains, Benu in San Francisco, and at The Dining Room at Whatley Manor Hotel, where he earned his first star in 2017 and a second in 2019. He opened Lunar Restaurant in November 2022.

Tender will officially open on 5 June.
