Really interesting range of drinks. Very reasonably priced (ie most cask ale - of which there are at least 7 -under £5 which is very good for didsbury). Food excellent, service prompt, attentive, professional and friendly, and table service for drinks if you're eating.

Fabulous breakfast really tasty and great service. Dog friendly. Value for money as the adverts outside is ½ price breakfast daily between 9-10.

We used to come here often but it really is style over substance. The wine, though good, is very expensive and the setting is not very comfortable. We’ve decided we prefer a little comfort if we’re paying over the odds!

I visit frequently but dread getting a drink. Usually there are 3-4 behind the bar busily moving glasses and boxes, or chatting and working hard to avoid eye contact. Usually you can plan on being ignored for 5 minutes and then a good 5 minutes...More

A nice Wine bar (... and possibly some tapas) in West Didsbury, with a very diverse population of customers. Quite enjoyable... but don't hesitate to challenge the wine list... from time to time.

Richard you give just one star for supposedly expensive beer?? What about all the other aspects of a place?? Never mind let's look at your chosen subjuct of beer prices, and in particular compared to the other nearby places Albert's and The Metropolitan. (By the way WW has not changed hands but the beers have changed which may have changed prices, but there are lots of beers available at cheaper prices than Mahou) So here are prices taken from freely available drinks menus today 25th Jan 2018. Draught beers 4% basic lager £4.00 WW, £4.00 Alberts, £4.35 Metropolitan Guinness £4.30 WW, £5.00 Alberts, £4.75 Metropolitan Big Wave £5.60 WW, £5.70 Alberts, N/A Metropolitan Goose Island £4.80 WW, £5.30 Alberts, £6.75 Metropolitan Real Ales (locally sourced) From £3.60 WW, From £4.00 Alberts, £various Metropolitan Other beers WW sell… Paulaner £4.80 NZ Hopped Craft Beer £4.80 Brooklyn £5.60 All good prices in the market place And yes - Mahou £5.40 - that’s what it is. Bottled beers Modelo £4.00 WW, N/A Alberts, £4.94 Metropolitan Peroni £3.80 WW, £4.20 Alberts, £4.35 Metropolitan Corona £3.80 WW, N/A Alberts, £4.35 Metropolitan I think you'll see that WW are actually cheaper on EVERY BEER !! In closing why don't you do your research before putting such a pathetic review on Tripadvisor. Please remove your review at once Grow up Richard J
