One of my favourite pubs for lunch. I visit fairly often but usually on a weekend. This time I took my mum for lunch on a hot, sunny Tuesday. The outside terrace was delightful in the sun, a perfect place to drink one of the excellent beers sold here. We ordered the ham and eggs and the beef and ale... More

I cannot have any sugar. Not for some fad diet, for health reasons and i have bad reactions. I asked them to remove the chutney from my plate (as i said i wanted it plain!) and all they did was scrape it off which left the chutney residue on my plate. This was appalling. I should have been served a... More

Beautiful pub inside and gives the feeling of a country pub despite being in the heart of Manchester. We went for Sunday roast lunch; whilst the staff were attentive, it was clear the food wasn't that freshly prepared and rather warmed up - globular gravy, tough to cut meat. I would go again and recommend given the lovely setting however... More

The interior of this pub is beautiful-it feels like a proper country pub! It also has great outside seating overlooking the canal. The food was so tasty and the staff were attentive. So pleased to have recently moved to the area so we can make this our new local!

Very nice food destination both for outdoors and inside. We had morning coffee here and then an evening meal and both were excellent with good service. Very nicely located by the canal and very pleasant area outside. Inside the pub is comfortable and spacious with a great atmosphere. The service was very good.

Nice food and a good range of ales. It's a lovely big pub with a nice patio/beer garden area next to the canal. A little expensive, but so are many other pubs in that area.

Dropped in the other day for a drink and a bite. Had the Cheddar, Onion and Potato Pie and my partner had Steak & Ale Pudding and were both incredibly impressed. Decent portion size and delicious food, accompanied by friendly service. Will definitely be returning in the future.
