During our weekend in Manchester accidentally stumbled upon this place in Castlefield. Had a very good lunch here (toasted foccaccia with hummus and roasted vegetables and a Lancashire cheese and onion pie) accompanied by nice ale (lots to choose from). Good service and pleasant pub/restaurant. Went back for a second time.

Having been for the first time one busy Saturday night, thought it might be nice to test it again at a quieter time. So, a Monday lunch time in the snow seemed ideal. Despite being cold out side the welcome was warm and friendly. Being on public transport I was able to partake of the reasonable selection of malt whiskies at a fair price considering its location. Again there was a menu with not the normal run off the mill items on it but an interesting choice. The food appeared to be freshly prepared with a long wait (and tasty). Staff were friendly and obliging.

Right on the waterfront, this was a nice location. Too cold to sit outside, but I would imagine it'll be very popular in the summer months. The service was good and the food was excellent. There was also a very good selection of beers!

Saturday afternoon meal for 4, first thing you see before you go in is the fountain infront of the door (where you can spend a penny and make a wish). As you walk in the bar is huge with a good selection on offer, you must try to balance a coin on the lemon (if you can). We were sat upstairs and started with the sharing platters (1 word Quality....). On to main and all were great served with enough time inbetween each course. The service was great even when asked to recommend because i couldn't choose. When we got the bill i prebooked 2 other meals, that should speak for itself. Hopefully next visit it wont still be winter and we can sit outside and enjoy the view of the canal, here's to the next visit.

We were in Manchester last Sunday and came across the Wharf and thought we would have a drink. It has a lovely canal side outside area, very family and dog
orientated. It has a very good menu and we decided to have some lunch which was lovely. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, we can't wait for the weather to get warmer it would be the lovely to spend an afternoon sitting outside enjoying a nice glass of wine watching the boats going by.
