We went as a family and friends group after doing The Crystal Maze experience down the road. Service was good, friendly waitress and was attentive despite it being a busy time (we entered around 1pm). Menu looked interesting and inviting, we ordered a range of food from Fondu to share between 2, burgers and kebabs. Sadly the Kebabs arrived mainly... More

I'm sorry to hear of your disappointing experience and will be sure to pass on your food comments to the kitchen so this can be investigated. We are limited on space inside so try our best with the space that we have. When the sun is shining our courtyard opens up and provides a delightful outdoor area, I hope you... More

Went with a group of friends. The kebabs were good but my burger was poor. It was cooked nicely but was only luke warm. We sat inside but it was difficult to hold a conversation as the chatter and music was a bit loud. I suggest outside would be better! The seating benches were also rather hard after about 30...

Stopped for some lunch on a Saturday and was impressed. Service is very good. Food was all lovely, burgers, kebabs and pies all very nice and quick delivery. Great beer and wine selection as well. Four cask ales on offer and the two I had were both well kept. Highly recommended.

We stumbled across the Oast House whilst staying at the local Lowry hotel. What a gem! There's a great outdoor seating area for when the weather is nice (We'll be coming back in the summer to experience it!). There were lots of drinks on offer - a good, varied selection. There was some great acoustic music the night we visited.... More

Came here after meal out and having no children was a treat, really friendly service, little live band playing, we did not eat so can't comment on food, they had put seating outside and presume the band and outside bar would be set up but sadly British weather made this not possible, again well worth a visit as friendly atmosphere,...

The Oast House is located in the Spinningfields area of Manchester... we visited again recently and had a good time... Staff provide a warm welcome in this alternative bar that looks like a country cottage and provides a change to the modern looking bars/restaurants in Spinningfields... Oast offers a great selections of good beers/ales, plus champagne, wines and other drinks... More

We stopped for a drink here and very much enjoyed it! First of all the place looks fabulous and has lots of outside seating, which is lovely when the weather is nice! They have a great selection of ales and the man that served us was very friendly and helpful, suggesting which ales we might like to try :)

I have been to the Oast House on numerous occasions and have no idea why I've never reviewed it! Its probably my favourite places in Manchester. It has such an awesome feel to it and seems to blend in with every season....ie. in winter it's so cozy, in summer it has a real holiday feeling with an outside bar, music... More

Always buzzing with a great atmosphere, oast house is one of our go to places for drinks in Manchester! The prices are reasonable and the drink selection is good. It does get very busy so finding a seat inside could be difficult but that said the outside seating is very generous!
