Went here for a pub lunch and a few drinks whilst staying in Manchester, gorgeous huge pub and we will definitely be returning. We sat outside but the inside looked amazing, so will definitely be returning

Over all two stars however had the waiter not been so attentive then I would have given it one star. £65 for two meals and a few drinks. What a waste of money. Send your chefs back for training and lay off the salt!!

Brilliant service from Charlotte. The Roast was exceptional, requested beef ‘rare as possible’ and it was perfect. Pork was delicious and big portion! Excellent value for a proper Sunday roast.

This was our first trip into Manchester this lockdown and it was excellent. That was helped a great deal by this place which, from the moment we checked in, made you feel safe and secure. The service throughout was superb. Our waitress from South Shields...was great fun but professional and really cared about you having a good time. Ordering through the app was easy and the food arrived very quickly. The steak puddings were excellent and the same comment applies to the burgers. They have a great range of drinks and, although it was really busy, everything just flowed and that is to the wharfs great credit.More

Came over from York for the day and had a fabulous time! The spicy buffalo chicken wings were great. Brilliant service from a lovely blonde lass called simone. Will be recommending this spot to my friends

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here last night. The service was impeccable. 2 allergies in our group and we were not made to feel as though this was any problem to be dealt with. The food was tasty and well cooked. It was a warm...evening so we were fine but I suspect if the temperature drops it may get chilly outside so wrap up warmly, but I highly recommend that you go!More

Visited here for our first meal out after lockdown and couldn’t have been happier. The chicken burger was delicious and it was so lovely to sit outside and enjoy a pint or two, even if it was a bit cold!

Absolutely wonderful!!! Food and drink selection excellent, service fantastic throughout and overall an excellent day. We felt Covid secure throughout the day with various sanitising stations and really well spaced out tables! Huge respect to Tash and her team for their minutes silence to commemorate...the death of Prince Phillip, such a moving moment when all staff stood and bowed their heads in silence and the entire terrace was completely silent!!! A moment that will never be forgotten. We cannot wait to return!!! Keep up the hard work guys-smashing it!More

A group of us visited in opening week. We had a couple of problems with the ordering system and Simone was fantastic in helping us sort it out. She was polite and friendly, and made our experience great. We will visit again because of Simone...😊More

First meal out in nearly a year with deer friends, some technical issues with QR codes but the staff were very quick to correct it. Food was, as usual, excellent, as were the staff, particularly Elisha who served us, so kind, so polite and with...a good bit of banter!More

Dogs are not allowed in the restaurant they are only allowed downstairs in the bar. This helps with the lovely community atmosphere of the bar and the dogs are very welcome by most visitors.

Yes very much so. My children are often here with me. It's our local. Fenced area and benches outdoors. Common sense prevails obviously to keep an eye on them but we love it there

The wharf has its own monitored car park and there are numerous car parks close by. First Avenue is an excellent short/long stay car park and the local NCP car parks on Deansgate are reasonably priced also.
