Dropped in here late evening one Tuesday. Still a few drinkers in. Relaxed atmosphere and some Paul Heaton on the PA. We were too late to eat but will call back to try the cheeseboard next time we're in Mcr

This is definitely my favourite bar in the Gay Village. A mixed crowd, not too 'young' and the music isn't so loud that you can't hear yourself think, unlike other venues nearby. I can't comment on the food as I haven't yet sampled it. Recommended for a mid week after work drink

Recently visited Manchester for the weekend to have a mooch around some exhibitions. I stumbled upon the Molly house by chance and was greeted by friendly staff. It was late afternoon and fairly quiet inside. I got the full attention of the young lady behind the bar who even helped me go through my maps in search of other interesting... More

In short. Don't bother me, gossiping, rude staff. Everthing is too much trouble and if you're face doesn't fit - watch out. Small village minded and manager never actually there.

It never ceases to amaze me how the front of house seems oblivious to the damage they may reek on the whole business. When one has a poor experience of interacting with the front of house their whole impression of the business changes, suddenly the smaller portions become even smaller! The way the dishes are placed in front of you... More

I have frequented this bar since it opened. I am a professional who has taken work colleagues there on many occasions and pop in there at the end of the week to meet friends. It was always friendly and welcoming to regulars. I have spent lots of money here and recommend this establishment to friends and professional colleagues and partake... More

Stopped off here with a friend after work and enjoyed a peaceful atmosphere, the bar seems well stocked with choice of good quality booze and tea and coffee. Its relaxing as the staff don't hassle you so its a good place to take your time and kick back. The toilets are up 3 flights of stairs so would not recommend... More

If you enjoy waiting far too long for bar service, horrible toilets and poor music then the molly house is for you. I used to really enjoy going in but since it's now somewhere I'd rather not go. With a full bar of people, there's only two or three people ever serving meaning having to wait a very long time... More
