Visited here for a drink and bite too eat, following a quick google search of real ale pubs in Manchester. Glad I chose this one. Had 6 ales on hand pump, all the ones I chose were kept and served perfectly. There was also plenty of bespoke stuff on keg and large selection of bottles too. The staff seemed passionate... More

Website advertises food available until 8.30pm every day. Our group of 8 came for Father's Day tea and the quiz, and were told at 8.05pm that food is actually only served until 8pm - the website is wrong!

Review is of a visit on a Friday late Afternoon / early evening . Nestled under a railway arch , close to Manchester's Deansgate Station , the Knott bar is a modern but not too trendy bar ,with it's upstairs balcony and good food ,its a very pleasant place to spend time ..

In Manchester on business I paid homage to the well named Knott Bar and walked down from Piccadilly where we were staying. I persuaded a work colleague to put in the extra walk on the basis of good beer and food. The beer delivered with excellent real ale and craft beers and a good selection from Europe.

I love this bar, its location is unique with a very wide spectrum of beer on offer! The place is always buzzing but gets very busy too.

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
