A huge pub , but still it felt cosy and friendly. A good place to sit and observe the locals , or chat with your friends . A good variety of beers . The staff polite and helpful . In the center of the city, near the town hall. Crowdy on weekends nights .

The place stunk of bleach, which I imagine was the managers way of trying to hide the fact the toilets were bloody disgusting. The main toilet door was jammed open, and the other one opened in such a way that, anyone sitting by the toilet door at a table can see right into the gents, and get an eyeful of... More

We went in here because my husband knew about the photos of George Best and told me it was used in the filming of Cold Feet and it is a really great pub. Lovely friendly atmosphere even though it was really full. Will definitely return.

What a fun and friendly bar from the staff to the customers. Not full of kids. Karaoke was lots of fun. No "professional" singers to spoil it. Great mix of people. Brilliant night out. Highly recommended and we can't wait to return again and again.

We called in here because we saw that it did Sky Sports and we wanted to watch the cricket. The TV wasn't on when we walked in, but the barman was happy to put the cricket on for us. As the pub didn't do food, we left for a meal and then returned later in the evening for the end... More

My husband and I went here with some friends. We just happened to walk past and we heard the music so we said we'd pop in for a quick drink and ended up staying for quite a few drinks and dances. The atmosphere was great. The music was great too. Would highly recommend it. We're definitely going to go back.

Traditional old pub set in a side street just off the main deansgate drag, good selection of ales and beers and decent for a hassle free drink away from the hustle and bustle of town. Freindly bar staff and reasonably priced will nip in again for a drink.
