“Atlas bar is better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Across the road from Dean state locks....good balcony for people watching and good selection of continental beers and lagers.....just not as cool and hip as the Atlas.

“Great beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

I love the Knott Bar. The most important thing is th ebeer that is always kept well. The Marble ginger being a particular favourite of mine. Also good food which is decent value for the portions.

“Overnighter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We were staying locally and looking for some real ale. i had looked at this place before our visit and was well impressed. The beer very good and the food superb for the money. My wife's Roast Lamb hit the spot. Although a little disappointed that the steak was not available the creamy chicken with Chorizo was superb. Well done. It is a pity we don't live a bit closer.

“One of Manchester's best bars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

I have been going to the Knott Bar for many years and it is consistently excellent.

It is owned by Marble Brewery and serves two of the Marble beers alongside well-chosen guest beers, premium lagers and a small collection of bottles. The food is also great - had the best burger and chips in years yesterday and their Sunday lunches are great.

Good jukebox and there is a balcony that provides a covered smoking area.

“Laid back, relaxing pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Nothing bad to say about this place. Great find with decent food and a nice atmosphere. Good music. Genuine pub feel - not a crappy wine bar.
