Visited on the 20th June for lunch. A hot afternoon.
It looks great from the outside, in a really good location.
What intrigued me was that on a hot afternoon, with a packed garden.....Why was nobody eating??
....... I now know why!!!!!
This Pub serves only Sam Smiths products, which I think is great, and something a bit different. It also represents great value for money, with stupidly cheap pints! (Please sort your postmix out though!!)
Young lad on the Bar was very informative, with great levels of customer service.
We ordered two 'freshly battered' Fish and Chips.
The condiments (which we had to grab ourselves) were so basic, and more suited to a tacky greasy spoon restaurant.
Fish was oily. Batter was overdone and swimming in grease. Mushy peas were cold.... But the chips were nice :-)
Server didnt bother to check how our meals were.... Probably aware of what the response would be!!!
This Pub has the potential to be great, with a packed yard, full of diners.... It must sort out its food offering though.
If you are only looking for somewhere to have a drink, give it a go.
Might give it a second chance on our next visit to Manchester......
