Went in last Thursday.
Very very nice inside but absolutely no atmosphere. Souless.
Expensive drinks.
Full of middle aged men and plenty of mutton dressed as lamb! (I thought Browns was bad but this place makes it look like a youth club)
Not been in on a weekend yet but im in no rush to try.
I'm sure they will soon be letting anyone in mid week (trainers or not!) or else the place won't last long.
What a let down after such a long wait.

Agree with all comments, but it does have the biggest smoking area in Stockport.......Torky Park!

Hey dave don`t start rumours with me and the park thats how I finished up married the first time. Her old man heard the rumour, mind you I have got to take what I can get these days. Blo**y zimmer frame gets in the way all the time.
Brendon didn`t even come home before Thailand still he is back Jan/Feb so good excuse for early doors.
By the way is your food back on at lunch times, I`ll bring the Girls if it is.
Too good a pub to go under, Landlord ain`t bad either.

Hey Kevin where do you get zimmer frames from?,no dont answer that people might think that i need one too. anyway on a serious note, what were you upto in the park all those years ago?. Yes the food is back on, its simple fayre cooked by a simple person for ordinary folk with healthy appetites, but its only at lunchtime cos i need a sleep late afternoon now that im of a certain age. looking forward to seeing Brendon again i like his company and he has something of your wit about him which isnt such a bad thing.

went to zuri for the first time, sat night 8th dec, with a group of girls and iv got to say it was one of the best nights out i have had in a long time. they were quite strict on the door which proved to be a good thing as there were no scallys in trainers or hoodies, which made us girlies feel really relaxed. the dj played great tunes all classic funky soul which everyone was dancing 2 which is seldom seen in a bar. when we didnt want 2 dance just chat we were able 2 go upstairs 2 the cocktail bar and chill. the only thing was i tried to go for a smoke at the back of the bar but was asked to go and smoke at the front....the doorman said that they didnt want people talking to load and upsetting the neighbours...which however inconvient was a very nice gesture on the bar owners behalf...quite rare. all in all i will be going back its like being in a london bar but only 10 mins from home. by the way im 25 and our group had varying ages from 19 to 46....and we all loved the place.

ps...no charge on the door to get in....so it ticks all my boxes....maybe i will see you there

There's no disputing the place looks fantastic, but as i and others have said there is no atmosphere what so ever and the price's are over the top, maybe if you are used to drinking in London bars the price's don't bother you.
And as for smoking how bad does that look when you see loads of people stood on the pavement outside Zuri's, I wonder if health & safety have seen the big portable heaters that are not stable as one guy bumped into it as he was trying to get past all the smokers to go into the Blue Nile (he sat on the next table to us and boy was he angry.Dont thnk he will be going back from what he said to his mates.
As for hoodies & trainers the only days they are not allowed in is fri & sat.
