A good Castlefield venue

A good venue for drinking at any time. An excellent range of real ales, some locally brewed. Well recommended.

Having eaten here many times , I was very disappointed today, could not eat much of a very tough & dry meal. I was offered a free sweet in place of the main meal . No wonder there was hardly any other dinners

Cracking atmosphere. Great service considering how jammed it was. I enjoyed the fruity stouty Pud beer thing which tasted like liquid Christmas Pud and my lager drinking friends enjoyed the oops 8.5% draft lager type thing that they were on. The food looked decent as it passed us by but we were just in for a quick drink and that... More

Arrived for lunch at opening time 12pm. Glad we did as this place gets VERY busy. Had a really nice Coffee Porter beer and the homemade fish finger sandwiches. Service was excellent, food nice and hot and delicious too. Location is amazing road, canal, tram and train all close by giving the place a unique character. Will certainly visit again... More

Its a great little bar next to Deansgate. Always a wide choice of very good beers. Plus the burgers are worth trying

Nipped in here when in the area after being highly recommended by a friend for it's great range of choice of beers and it did not disappoint. Lots of keg and cask beers of all colours and types. Shame I wasn't around for longer as there's only so many I could try in the one night! I didn't eat here... More

A quaint shaped bar near to the station. It has a lovely atmosphere and the smell of the cooking is amazing. The food is fantastic and the portion sizes are fabulous. Great place to visit highly recommend

We went for Sunday lunch. It was fairly quiet. We both had the roast lamb with sausage meat and apricot stuffing. I was able to add Yorkshire pudding to mine for 50p extra. For starters I had calamari and my partner had chorizo. Both were very good. The main courses were really nice. The only minor negative is that the... 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.
