Just totally taken by the vibe in this student dominated eaterie/ pub. Great range of food, beer, drinks etc. Amazing tomato bruschetta. Would visit daily if lived nearer! Prob very busy in term-time, so pick your visit time.

The atmosphere is cosy and welcoming and the food is tasty, but sadly a little overpriced. However this wouldn't stop me from coming and eating here again! Just need to spend a little more than I would normally.

When we arrived it was very busy. The restaurant isn't very well signed that it isn't table service, and there seemed to be a large group near the main bar that were unsure of how to place an order. We waited about half an hour for our food. My partner got eggs that looked very nice, and he enjoyed. I... More

A colleague and myself dined here on the 22 December. We booked a table, and even though it was rammed we got our table as requested on our booking. The food was hot and we didn't have to wait too long.

Went in for breakfast and ordered Eggs Royale. Wait 30 mins for it to arrive, this wasn't a peak time as there were only three customers. Whilst I was waiting for my food the chefs decided to move some machinery out of the kitchen. Lots of noise level, lots of banging and shouting. When my food arrrived the poached eggs... More

The bar is in a good location next to the university and is a nice alternative the the student union bar across the road. There is a nice range of seating inside and out with good drinks and reasonable food. The service is friendly. There are also private rooms available to book.

Usually I and my student mates visit Kro bar on Fridays as it quite close to the lecture halls. Pros: good location, good menu, variety of drinks, moderate prices, moderate speed of service. Cons: uncomfortable seating space inside, poor lighting so dark inside, sometimes rude barmen. Outcome: we will continue visit this place.

After 2 hours os BSL class I'm now very thirsty. Sadly no dark ale on cask/draft but staff recommended an alternative and she was well educated in the art of real ale and also very friendly. The bar was really busy but I felt staff gave me utmost attention!

This bar is in the middle of the university and definitely has the feel of a student bar. However, the menu is quite aspirational with some interesting-sounding Danish food as well as bar classics. I had a good pint of beer and ordered the schnitzel. I was told I could have two for the price of one as it was... More

Nipped in here for a quick lunch whist in Manchester for business, had a half rack of ribs & chips which were fabulous. No frills student service and the tables are a bit close together, but great value and good food.
