“proper old bar”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Went here recently with hubby, dad and stepmum. We have been before so took my dad for pre dinner drinks as he loves proper ales and beers. Really friendly no nonsense bar , they let you try different ales before you decide on one. Would recommend if you are in the castlefield area. Fab.

“We will Knott serve you!”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

I was so disappointed! having read the amazing reviews on trip advisor I booked a table at Knott bar for our Christmas works meal - 9 of us.
We duly arrived last night at 7.45pm to have to find seats for our reserved table as they had been taken, a kind member of staff greeted us, wiped our table clean & asked us to order at the bar before 8.00pm. In error we ordered or tried to order at 8.01pm to be told that we were too late!
They would not take our food order and that their "hands were tied!" and could not/would not serve us. Despite pointing out that there were 9 covers that they were losing along with our heavy drinking ability they would not budge. Apparently the kitchen staff were already on their way home and this had happened in the last minute!

Fortunately we were able to take our disappointment and disgust elsewhere to eat our Christmas meal elsewhere where we were served with pleasure. I am now not intrigued or tempted to return to see what all the trip advisor great scores are about, I will knott be returning due to the "jobs worth" attitude.

“Knott again”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Yes why Knott? Another big up from us to the Knott Bar for Sunday Roast,proper,price,portion and place.
Christmas Markets were hammered,which is cool fantastic atmosphere,but after 1/2 hr decided against a German bier in a plastic cup or a ridiculously overpriced 'beef burger' and sauntered down Deansgate to the Knott and glad we did.

“Good Food, Great Place”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Had a meal here whilst visiting Manchester on business. The atmosphere was great and the food even better, We were a large party but even so the staff looked after us very well. The food was all cooked to order and was plentiful and hot. My Haddock and chips were the best I've had in long time (especially being so far from the sea!).
