Interesting place across from Deansgate station. Also next to a canal, but not quite on it, since there was an intervening road. Not an attractive canal at any rate. Inside is L-shaped, with a dark bar area and a much brighter set of tables in the windows overlooking the train viaduct. Very nice selection of craft from around the UK, and a handful of casks. Food looked tasty as it passed by, but I had already eaten. Service was unremarkable. A very worthwhile stop.
Visited in Feb 2016. Modern craft beer bar with multiple keg and cask lines, close to Deansgate rail / metrolink stations. Place was quite busy on the Saturday evening that we visited but still felt quite relaxed. Bottle list was moderate in size but they unfortunately did not have everything on it. The guy that served us was friendly but was not very knowledgeable as he was new. Some of the beers were a bit pricey.
Fantastic pub. Really great location with lots of nice old buildings. Good reacheable by tram. Good handpump specials, food is really good. At least best food I had during my trip. Cosey, friendly staff. Excellent.
Drank here many times over the years good beer selection, good local cask and craft keg from uk ( new obviously) less belgian than there used to be because of it but thatís expected. Good place with good food and less balloons than most places in the area.

A former Marble brewery premises in central Manchester, this still serves real ale and the bar makes good use of the space under the railway arches on Deansgate. Modern bar type decor but not sterile looking, although it can get a bit cold if youíre sat by the large glass windows at its front in winter time.
An excellent bar with 8 hand pumps, 16 more taps and a good selection of bottles.
The Knott Bar is tucked under two pretty red railway arches at the far end of Deansgate, on the fringes of the city centre. It has an arched corrugated iron roof and an appealing balcony outside. The beer selection is terrific, the atmosphere laid back and relaxed and the service very friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately Iíd forgotten to take my glasses with me (the spectacular kind) so my notes are a bit shaky.

We visited here on both Fri 20th and Sat 21st Jan 2012 with Baz and Jude as this was close to Bazís work flat. Over the two days they had a great selection of beer with Marble Ginger, Marble Port Stouter Stout, Marble Bitter, Brewdog Hardcore IPA and Hawkshead Cumbrian 5 hop amongst the offerings, all in great nick. Can get busy with the afterwork crowd, but service is brisk. Enjoyed this place and despite it being a little walk from the centre there is also the Cask and also Deansgate pubs close by.
Great pub with a couple of Marble beers on hand as well as guest ales. Food is great with mains around the £8 mark that is decent sized portions. Draws the after work crowd and has good ambiance. Itís located under the arches which means the venue has a good ol rattle when the trains pass overhead. A fair walk from the city to get to but more than worth the effort. A nice relaxed place for a pint and meal with friends. Oh and the staff are great too. Solid.
