During a recent visit to Manchester, part of a 3 month holiday in the UK, we visited The Molly House in November for a drink one evening and happy that we did - we ended up staying over three hours, which is a long time for us. The bar staff were friendly, not pushy, sensibly chatty, jokey which made for a pleasant evening. Nibble food OK, warm winter ciders a treat!, ambiance good, we didn't go upstairs, we were too comfortable downstairs in the bar area. We found most Mancunians very friendly and open, many of them in this bar. Hardly a tourist in sight, except us, given it was winter this was understandable. We would have no hesitation of recommending this bar to our friends in Sydney most of whom travel a lot. Family members in UK said to us 'why are you going to Manchester - take your spears with you if you do!'. Well we've put them right, how wrong they were, so wrong in fact that we are returning again later this year, we loved Manchester! The Molly House helped in a big way!
