Approx 6 casks. Beer quality was hit and miss. Friendly staff. Would try again.

Nice architecture on the ceiling and arches which looked like it was crumbling. Cask beer selection was not bad, but the place felt empty and soulless

A spectacular church-like pub with six regular hand pumps and, during the Winter Ales Festival, an excellent, ever-changing range of interesting, mainly local beers. According to a board in the Crown and Kettle, there has been a pub on this site since 1734. The current building is from the nineteenth century and it’s a monument to the Victorians’ penchant for magnificent Gothic stonework and soaring arches which wouldn’t be out of place in a cathedral. The ceiling in the main bar is crumbling badly and covered with a net, presumably to protect customers from being hit on the head by falling masonry. The “vault”, the room next door, has been restored to its former glory so that the ceiling looks even more impressive (as well as safe) and there are green leather benches like those in the House of Lords. Apparently, in World War Two it was the preferred drinking hole for black American GIs who were segregated (whether forcibly or by choice, I don’t know) from their white compatriots. I wonder what they made of it and their Mancunian hosts? (Last visited 23 January 2013).

We dropped in for their beer festival before heading to the NWAF. Choice of 6 beers across 2 rooms although I’m not sure how many are normally on. The building is worth a look with a nice old partly renovated sealing.

A positive addition to the northern Manchester pub trail. Impressive gothic interior, with the ceiling in the lounge almost falling down (saved by the net). Six handpumps, they only had two beers on visit in July 2009. A couple of ciders were available as well. They were well kept. Friendly and efficient service. If you’re pub crawling in Manchester you’ll probably be passing by, so you might as well drop in for a couple of pints.

Very short stop at RBESG. There were a few casks available, all fair quality. The cider was probably off, but they still served it. Didn’t order anything myself, as Tom took care of that. (thanks Tom). A bit crowded, yet spacious, when we were there. Cool ceiling, yeah!

Visited 10/06/09. I would echo the comments about the interior - the ceiling is unique. A decent range of ales was available, the service was efficient and the locals were friendly. Well worth visiting if in the area.

I can only echo what I wrote on beerintheevening.com: This is an object lesson in how to renovate a pub. I only went once before the fire all those years ago but this is such an improvement I’m astonished. Fascinating architecture and you can still see the remnants of the fire when you look at the arched ceiling. Whenever I’ve visited the beer has always been in top nick with an adventurous choice of guests. Gets rammed when City are at home and they post security on the door on match days. Amazingly, they are always polite and professional. This is a great addition to the already strong Ancoats area.

Amazing architecture. They have a net over the ornate ceiling, presumably to protect customers in case bits fall off. However, for a pub that was only renovated a couple of years back, the furniture and interior is getting a bit scruffy. Almost deserted on a Wednesday evening. Four beers on handpump but only one was a scoop for me - that’s assuming that the house beer from Greenfield is not a rebadge. If you’re in Manchester to drink, you are going to be in that area anyway so it’s a must-visit but, beer-wise it is probably the most dispensable of the Northern Quarter stalwarts.

An absolute must stop, an architectural delight by Manchester’s pub standard. Solid selection of beers from varying breweries, many of which I had not seen previously. No-nonsense service, direct and effective. Comfortable and warm feel despite the building’s cold lines.

This place had been long shut from back in the days long before I started even drinking let alone scooping! Nice to see it open because the Northern Quarter has lost both the Beer House and the Pot of Beer in recent years so this at least goes some way to redressing the balance. Usually an interesting range of ales on here, worth a visit during the Winter Ales weekend as they tend to get hold of extra beer from a good selection of UK micro breweries.
