Good live entertainment. Nice ales to. Go check reggae Thursdays out:)

Sat here enjoying a really nice pint while my daughters at a uni interview. Friendly place, superb music playing, very relaxed. I only wish was staying in Manchester longer so I could come for a weekend.

Heidi Dewhirst

Rough and ready traditional pub now with a hipster appeal. The loos are always a bit worse for wear unfortunately but if you're going in for a dance on the Saturday vinyl night you'll get in the spirit and will enjoy this down to earth venue
