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

Too "plastic" to be a decent pub (although outside space next to Piccadilly Gardens would be OK if it was not so rammed in good weather) with too many wipe-clean surfaces. Service friendly enough and a decent range of drinks but ultimately the kind of place you might pop into for half an hour to kill time when you are... More

We ordered food whilst the bar was not too busy and were told it would be a 20 minute wait. 50 minutes later we're served with a mediocre risotto and fajita. Might be a reasonable place to drink but I'll be going somewhere else for food in future.

Popped in for a quick bite to eat with my girlfriend. For the area in which Kro is located I think it is quite pricey. We had the mushroom pasta and burger. The service was reasonably fast but the food was rather bland, especially the pasta which really didn't taste of anything. The burger was ok but for £12 (once... More
