About us

Under the railway tracks on Whitworth Street West is GORILLA, a bar, kitchen, live venue and club space from the people behind Trof and The Deaf Institute. 

Breakfast is served from 10.00am until 4pm. All other food is served from 10.00am until late. Choose from award winning royal breakfasts and Sunday roasts, chargrilled burgers and fancy sandwiches. There’s a grilled selection too; choices include steak on the rib, spatch-cocked chicken with lemon and fresh herbs, halloumi and chicken kebabs. And, like all of Trof’s venues, we're served by our own in-house bakery, which means that the sourdough, brioche and maple and pecan muffins couldn’t be any fresher. 

On the drinks list, we have a full menu of cocktails and shakes, alongside the best in bottled and canned beers, fine wines and fair-trade coffees. And there’s a second bar to explore too. 

The mezzanine bar at Gorilla hosts our Gin Parlour, a relaxed & sophisticated den dedicated to the consumption of glorious gin. We are stocked with the best gins from around the world; small batch, hand crafted distillations & all the diverse styles we need for our specialist cocktail list. All our drinks are made using the finest spirits, freshest ingredients and plenty of care & attention.
