Don't often get to this side of town but when I do, I like to pop in here to see what is on. Often, a couple of interesting beers on tap and, if nothing grabs you, there is an excellent bottled beer selection. Looking a...More

Long before 'craft beer' was ever a thing, cask has been here serving great beer since (I think) the turn of the Century. Despite the name the focus is more on kegged beer (still there is 3/4 rotating cask lines to keep the purists happy!)...More

This small unassuming bar is a total gem. A great selection on beers from around Europe (some very strong - be warned) and fantastic friendly staff. A nice little beer garden at the back which you would only know about by going in and they...More

Well-stocked bar just at the end of Deansgate near to the Beetham Tower. Laid back place. Lots of wood. Very interesting range of beers including craft beer from a brewery in Barcelona which was very fresh and was very well-received !

If it wasnt for the slightly dingy toilets I would give this 5 stars. We got a reasonably priced good cask IPA in the middle of town. No silly prices. Relaxed atmosphere and plenty of choice on draft; cask or top shelf. Vomit all over...More
