good options for people who love their local beers. great atmosphere and lovely staff. Shame it's small and had to wait for somewhere to sit and eat. Waited 1 hour due to their being a small function happening but had complimentary food. When we did get our food, it was absolutely gorgeous. my partner said it's the best burger he's... More

Pity, restaurant came highly recommended but we arrived at 8:04. Server was very nice and told us straight away so we didn't have to pay for drinks. Very nice smell, probably delicious

Wanting a few drinks and a quick bite to eat before going to see a band, 5 of us headed for Knott Bar. it was packed when we went in, but they found us a table at the back so that we could eat. Our fish and chips / burgers / Cajun chicken burger were all great, tasted home made... More

Knott Bar is a great place to go for a chilled out drink/bite to eat. Not that it's something I pay much attention to, but they seem to have a good selection of beers/ales and at one point (not sure if this is still the case) they did a great novelty take away service. On my most recent visit I... More

Popped in for lunch after reading reviews and wanting a pub with real ales and good food. Left extremely satisfied after 3 excellent pints and some lovely food (pulled pork and the halloumi sandwiches). Was a slight mistake with our order which was quickly and professionally sorted by the staff with a couple of free drinks thrown in as an... More

I am a regular visitor to Knott and I've always walked in with reasonably high expectations and walked out with a satisfied smile. Knott is located off Deansgate, kind of across the street from Beetham Towers, towards Castlefield. Easily accessible by bus, tram and train and conveniently located in the city centre. A usual routine for me and my friends... More

The Knott is without a doubt one of my favourite pubs. It is cosy and friendly with a great atmosphere and excellent staff. My boyfriend and his friends love the beers ( and they know their beers) and we regularly attend their fantastic quiz, which starts at 8:30 on a Sunday. The food is good too, traditional pub grub which... More

I go to the Knott Bar for the beer (all real ale from micros) but the food is always good as well. Well worth getting a tram out of town for a visit.

So, there I was sauntering about this here part of Manchester looking for a beer and some quality scran. I ventured down to some ostentatious and aspirational area where behemoths of bouncers barred your way. I am always more than suitably attired but the sheer presence of such things is most off putting, especially around 4pm on a sunny Sunday... More
