Booked a table here for 8 of us as a surprise meal for my partners promotion. It was really busy and we had to wait for about 25-30mins for a menu as they were all being used, other than the wait for the menu everything else was fab, food, service, staff were ever so lovely, friendly and very helpful. It's... More

Great place with a varied menu and consistently high quality food and service. Highly recommended is the steak on the stone which is superb. A hidden gem in Monton.

Mainly been at lunchtime. A lovely venue for lunch especially in the sunshine because of the canal side view. The food is always cooked to order so a bit of a wait but worth it. Superior pub food and a reasonable price. The staff are excellent.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday meal, also happened to be Easter Sunday. Beautifully decorated and food was gorgeous! Tried a Brazilian monk cocktail that went down perfectly! Had the beef dinner, absolutely gorgeous and very well presented! Will definitely be here again!

Called into this pub after an event in Manchester and although it's hidden away in quite innocuous surroundings, once found this canal-side gem is quite the treat! The staff were warm and welcoming and very accommodating. We opted to sit outside as the sun was blazing and had the advantage of watching the boats sail past. We both ordered the... More

My son and I are regulars here now and always get a high quality meal and excellent service. On sunny day there is nothing better than to sit by the canal with a cold drink, and this place delivers great food into the deal as well. A wide and varied menu and excellent bar.

Came for breakfast which was amazing, I asked the member of staff if I could have mine without egg due to an allergy and was very pleasantly surprised when she asked if I would like extra sausage or hash browns as a replacement, most places just leave the egg off and I have become used to paying for a meal...
