A little jewel

Just behind the main social area off canal street, this bar serves great food, fine drinks and all in a pleasant environment.

One of my favourite pubs. Good food downstairs with great tapas. A great selection of beers in the lounge area upstairs. A nice mixed crowd, straight gay lesbian. Can't think of a group who i'd not take there.

Great situ and the style is cool, also had a very nice warm welcome at the bar from the ladies downstairs, unfortunately it turned sour beyond that going upstairs; we got a nasty snarl from the guy behind the counter (which seemed clearly well rehearsed) although to be honest we could easily overlook this. But, the food was awful, just... More

Don't often go to this side of town but friends took us here as they like it & its a "quieter" bar. Well, the second floor certainly wasn't but we did get served quickly. We moved back to the first floor and were lucky to get seats but it was still noisy and as time progressed getting noisier. I guess... More

I always pop into the Molly House when I'm in Manchester, however have only had drinks in there, which is always great, since there is a fabulous selection of real ale, which is severely lacking in the other pubs / bars in the Village. Since I was in town last week, my friend and I decided to try the tapas... More

The molly house is a little gem located just off the Gay Village in Manchester. It offers a variety of great craft beers, food and normal draft beers at very reasonable prices. The crowd is very varied and full of people from all walks of life (I must sadly say that this is a rarity in the gay village) and... More

Nice cosy, intimate little bar that does cocktails. It's a relief from all the noisy bustle of Canal Street.

Attended a catered hen do at the Molly House - we booked up the downstairs room and had a fabulous evening. Those of us who arrived early had a drink upstairs on the cute little balcony (good for the smokers) before heading down to the cosy room we'd booked. The atmosphere was lovely, the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive,... More

Called in for a drink en-route from Piccadilly Station to Deansgate - nice relaxed feel,pleasant friendly atmosphere and good mix of people - the decor is quirky without feeling contrived. We didn't eat but the tapas (being produced from the smallest open kitchen I've ever seen) looked awesome. Good range of drinks at fair prices.Staff were lovely and helpful and... More
