My 2 friends & I booked here for bottomless brunch today & weren't sure what to expect as never attended such a thing before. Upon our arrival we were greeted by very friendly & attentive staff despite the fact that we arrived before the place had actually opened. We were given a choice of a variety of drinks & never...

I have never been here for food but I always end up here on a night out. It is one of the few places in Northern quarter that is open past 3am most days of the week. Chilled place as good for a dance but great to play pool as only £5 for the hour.

I really used to enjoy Black Dog but lately it's gone downhill. Staff are very rude and unhelpful and drink prices are extortionate. A member of staff smashed a glass with a full drink on my legs when placing it on the bar and completely ruined my outfit, it was the first bar I had gone to! He said "oops... More

Attended Black Dog for a wedding reception. We were up in the first floor which had been reserved for the event. The venue seemed very organised and all was relaxed. The bar was occasionally a little slow but probably due to the many guests drinking, however bar staff were friendly. Offered cocktails freshly made and a good selection of beers.... More

The venue itself is fine, with the usual drinks and a few pool tables. I had gone there looking forward to a nice evening with my sister. There was a small issue that was highlighted to bar staff soon after we arrived; the bar staff did not seem to care too much but did escalate it to their manager. However,... More

Been going in Blackdog for around 2 years; never been disappointed. This time especially I was super happy with service. Me & a friend got a huge Chicken burger, and a freshly prepared Chicken pizza - it was spot on. Ace atmosphere and music. Staff were helpful in recommended cocktails/recommendations. These guys know what they are doing. One of the... More

Drinks were also reasonable, only downside is that at 2030 they came over and told us someone had reserved our table so... More

Been to all of the black dogs in Manchester, have eaten... Food is reasonable but nothing special, good for large party's, cocktails are tasty and bar service quick, a few games of snooker made the night fun, not the place for relaxed dining but definitely worth a try for something a bit different on a night out

Enjoy this place. Always order a few cans of Red Stripe, which is my favourite beer. It was late Saturday afternoon and the place was 3/4 full. You can easily miss this place, basically there's a double door on street level, then stairs to the underground bar. I'm sure there's also an elevator if you need to use one. I... More
