Most of the door staff were very unwelcoming and seemed more like henchmen than someone who cared for the safety of paying customers. The cloakroom staff struggled massively with the function of the cloakroom. After realising I hadn't been given a ticket for my coat and attempting to explain, the 4/5 females barked that I had definitely got a ticket,... More

This special day was marked with a set offering that was a reasonable menu. How ever the wording of the menu looked as if it had been penned by an estate agent. There was poetic license being used to over egg the offering, the kebab starter was little more than a mini skewer that is a shop bought item 5... More

We did have to wait a while for cocktails but that was the only downside although it was busy. I can imagine this place having a lot of atmosphere during the evening as there was loud music playing recommned if thats... More

I have been here twice having a fun, expectially on a party with my work friends. The canal around it's an awesome background and also the pub is very nice, but I think is too axpensive to pay a pint of San Miguel for 5£!

We came here after a long walk through the city on a warm sunny day. We just needed to sit down and have a drink. In hindsight we should have walked just that little bit further on to The Wharf. The drink selection was disappointing - more Printworks than Castlefield. No ales and no heineken, which was weird considering all... More

My partner had lots of sticky sauce I had none. None the less they were rather nice. For mains I had chicken with parma ham on a bed of tagatelle.... More

Really pleasant afternoon, helped by a warm sunny afternoon. Drinks slightly expensive, but nice to sit outside and take in the views of quays. Great atmosphere with friendly bar staff. Definitely be back.
