We found this place on trip advisor after having been on the Manchester bus tour (which was great). Just wanted a light bite and we all ordered burgers. They are billed as 'real burgers' and that is exactly what they are - superb! Chicken fillet burger was especially nice. Nice friendly staff and proper home cooked food

I loved this place. Generally small for Manchester standards but very very cosy and more on the traditional side for a gastro pub. On a Fri night it got pretty busy pretty quickly after 8.30 but it wasn't jam packed the way I experience it in London. The strong point here is the food and the atmosphere. The food is... More

It's a really eclectic mix of people here. And you definitely know that you are smack down in the gay village. The people are the thing that makes this place special... Everything else is just like any other pub.

Wonderful little bar/eatery hidden within the city centre. I've walked past this very street on the way to work everyday for the last two years but without Trip Adviser would have never know about this incredible little tapas bar. Service was exceptional from both the chefs and bar staff who together, without being invasive, very kindly ensured we were happy... More

Went to the Molly house with husband after reading reviews about it on here. Wanted to try somewhere a bit different and it didn't disappoint. Tucked away at the back of canal st. Its a lovely little place. The ground floor bar is quite cozy. The bar staff very friendly. Upstairs is another larger bar with comfy sofas and a... More

Came for a tapas lunch, left very satisfied! The tapas are really well-cooked - just-ready prawns, tender chicken in a gorgeous chimmichurri sauce, fresh empanadas - and the portion size was impressive! Used to smaller, fiddly London tapas, we completely over ordered but it was worth the stuffed tummies! A few good real ales on tap and some great bottled... More

My partner and I called into this bar last week for a pint. My bag went missing, and staff weren't very helpful. When I asked to see CCTV, the bouncer disappeared upstairs and came back with the bag. All very dubious. I wouldn't bother going again.

Partner and I had vegetarian platter to share. It should have been called stodge and salt platter to share. The bread is more like a bun and the rest is just swimming in fat. Not good, we both had belly cramps afterward and we only ate a little. On the plus side the bar is lovely and the drinks are... More
