Great for drinks in the summer.

Stopped here a couple of times for pints in the sun and that was great so I decided to book a table for a celebration I was having and found myself pretty disappointed. Even though I'd booked a week in advance we were put upstairs away from everyone else in the place so no atmosphere at all. I... read more

We were waiting to see Jimmy Cliff at the academy opposite and had a drink in Kro . I noticed they were serving food at the time . On visiting the toilets I was mobbed by a large cloud of house fly the toilets we're full of them the floor was sticky and covered in paper towels as the bin... More

My partner and I visited the Kro Bar on 6 June 2015 for a few drinks. Kro Bar is a quirky little place with a good selection of beers! The ideal location to have pre-drinks before going to Academy 1 or 2 to catch a gig! Unfortunately we ate prior to heading to Manchester as we were unsure about what... More

Went to the old abbey on Wednesday 3rd June. It was closed for a private party. They don't give a toss about their regular customers or they don't have any. I spoke to a representative from Bruntwood (their landlord and owners of the MSP) a few weeks ago and he described them as 'dodgy fly by nights who might be... More

The restaurant provides a mostly Danish menu and to a high standard. I was visiting my daughter at University and her brother had come down from York so this choice of restaurant was perfect for us. The main meal was hearty and comforting and the desserts equally wonderful. The menu is not extensive but what they do provide is excellent.

Mushroom bruschetta - at the most, 4 chopped mini mushrooms. Fish finger sandwich - 3 mini fingers. Poor portions, poor value. Give it a miss.

We had dinner here before a concert at the church next door. What a lovely meal - my daughter and I had prawn and salmon salads with fiery horseradish relish - scrumptious. My husband had a tasty burger and chips, although he didn't like the homemade tomato sauce. Mojitos were 2 for 1 - so it would have been madness... More

Been a few times now just for drinks, Haven't tried the food but what I saw looked good, good fairly priced drinks, bar service was a little low but staff friendly enough, they do some great deals during the week especially for students, will be back soon

A relaxed yet lively, studenty bar cum simple eatery centrally located in the Manchester University area. The front area has a nice, long wood bar with comfy sofas and some tables. There is wooden bench seating in the back. Music is loudish and lively - we enjoyed it. We had a delicious late breakfast - eggs on English muffins or... More

This particular Kro Bar is in the middle of Manchester University, so ambiance is obviously out of the question. It also faces a busy road, outside seating being as un-atmospheric as that inside. The toilets were scuzzy, with neither paper hand towels nor drying machines - fine if you fancy eating with sodden fingers. That said, prices are reasonable. Both... More
