good food, great beer

Reasonably priced food - a big meal (burger probably or traditional pub grub) costs about a tenner. There is a nice range of beers - not huge but definitely plentiful. The clientele is diverse and friendly. The staff are lovely. The downside? It is really noisy! I would imagine it breaches... read more

Always had great beer & atmosphere but recently discovered that the food is great as well. Still one of my favourite haunts in Manchester. Handy when on the tram or train, from Deansgate.

I first went in this bar when I went to a rugby match with my son didn't have a meal but said that I would return. I went this week with my wife Shirley for a meal and a drink both were excellent. The barman was very friendly and nothing to much trouble.

One of the hidden gems of Manchester. great choice of real ales and unusual lagers, food is top end pub grub. Great atmosphere and excellent staff who are always so helpful and willing to advise on the beer and food. Good news that the wine bar revolution has some opposition

We arrived for what we thought would be a quick meal before going to the cinema. When I said I'd like to order some food, I was told there would be a 35 minute wait. This is at 6.30 on a Thursday. There were plenty of free tables. The menu is basically burgers, so there can't be that much involved... More

If you like cask ale, start your night here, a big selection and well served. A good casual atmosphere in a handy location.

we poppped in for a Sunday roast: a choice of lamb or beef: both were very good. The standard of the food was excellent and the portions generous. There is a large selection of beer and craft beers. The ones we tried were both fine. The place was reasonably full and there was a good atmosphere: it looks like a... More

I went to the Knott for dinner the other night. I haven't been for a long time. Not because I disliked the place, but because I have been away a lot for the past few months. It was he ideal place to choose for a "pub meal". Firstly I found out that they were "running low" on beer when what... More

I've been to Knott bar several times now and it never disappoints! The staff are lovely, the drinks are reasonable and the food even better! We went just yesterday to try the Sunday pub quiz and I think I know what I'll be doing every Sunday from now on!
