“Warm, Cosy & Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Went for a late Sunday lunch and it was delicious.

The staff are very friendly and were exceptionally helpful in finding us a suitable table as we had a toddler with us.

The menu is extensive, the service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Great selection of ales also.

I had the lamb roast dinner which was stunningly good and very generous portion sizes too.

Will certainly be back here again.

Lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

“excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

food here is amazing. The sharing meat platter is to die for. This is for 2 people, but could easily feed 3 or 4. The mussels were beautiful. Love this place, especially the lush carpet, feels like your bouncing. Highly recommend this place, and very reasonable priced for a city centre for a pub restaurant.

“Wished we'd found it sooner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Found this place yesterday as it seemed the only place serving food before 12, and we needed early lunch before we travelled home. Bar staff could not have been more attentive or friendly.

Food was lovely, reasonably priced for a city centre bar and presented really well.

Don't be put off by other reviews - just wished we'd found this place at the beginning of the weekend!

“Cocktails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Best cocktails in Manchester. The young handsome lad shaking his stuff was amazing a clearly an expert in his chosen field. We ordered the mojitos and found them more than generous.

10/10
