Average Student Bar

First of all; they have a Danish menu, NOT Dutch (I would know because I am Dutch). The KRO bar is a student bar and offers different snacks and mains. These are overpriced and are not really big portions. For a student bar the food is ok. Staff is very helpful. Upstairs is more comfortable... read more

Good beer selection, both on tap and in bottles. The food is strongly elevates traditional Gastro Pub fare in that it has an extensive menu and offers a variety of Dutch favorites, which definitely compliment the beers! I was there twice over the weekend, first enjoying the Danish meat balls (Frikadeller) and next enjoying the pork schnitzel with fried egg,... More

There are lots of places to eat in Manchester, all of them offering up pretty much the same type of food. Kro Bar is different. It's menu is unique and tasty. I am not going to go into details all I can say is go for yourself and try this place out it is well worth it. Like a lot... More

My wife and I ate a pre gig dinner here, and although the staff were helpful and pleasant, the place itself was dirty and, well, sticky. The tables were sticky, and the menus were sticky (my pet hate) and the dado rails needed a good ol' dusting too. The food was ok - what you'd expect from student bar I... More

The food here is grossly overpriced for what it is. On about five separate occasions, food has been either under-cooked, over-cooked or horribly greasy and I have had food poisoning after one lunch there. This is not the worst thing about Kro though. I can't think of anywhere else in Manchester where the ale is so poorly kept. It has... More

Fish and chips were gross, coffee way overpriced and not very tasty. Staff said minimum card purchase was 5 pounds when I tried to buy one coffee so he said he could just charge me the 5 pounds anyway, I said okay I will just get 2 coffees then... so got the second coffee and he ended up charging me...

Not much choice of beer unless you like lager. Not cheap - £6 for just a burger, chips extra. One order from our table (burger with all trimmings) was forgotten, when he complained he was given my order (plain burger), they took it away and added chips, then explained that the order had been taken down wrong and that's all...

We ate here in April 2014. there were 4 of us. When we first arrived the restaurant seemed very nice, there is a conservatory part and the sun was shining so first impressions were very good. We ordered a meat platter, prawn mayonaise sandwich, club sandwich, onion rings and potato wedges between the 4 of us. The bread from the... More
