Great buzzing beer place with good atmosphere. The bar allows dogs and are more than happy to accommodate with dog bowls. Thanks for a lovely evening

Nice enough bar if quite expensive even for Manchester. Main annoyance tonight is that bar staff don't bother to look around to see who is waiting to be served and simply look straight ahead at the gap just made at where they last served.

Overall, for the quality of the beer and service, I won't be rushing back. Did I mention the loud music at 19.00 at night ?

This was our meeting point for a Friday night in town.

My first contact was via its website. The pictures make it look very posh. But in fact it is something like a wooden clad Portakabin. Not a problem. The bar has a good atmosphere, a good selection of beers, service was good and wasn't too busy.

It is very hidden away and not the sort of place you would stumble upon. Perhaps it should be kept that way?
Either way a good bar and worth finding.

I spend so much time there, we live round the corner so it's kind of our local. The beer is great and the selection changes regularly. And the sandwiches and cakes are delicious too. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because it is not a cheap pub - you won't get much under £4 a pint. And when they hold tap takeovers events, it can be more - £3/4 a third or a half. It is not a criticism as it is what they chose to specialise in (a great selection of beers you probably won't get to try anywhere else), but it's worth bearing in mind.
