Great little bar, good selection of bottles. Sad to hear today that the Brewery (Boggart) has gone bust but the bar will stay. I wish them all the best for the future

Great for the weary shopper situated at the back of the Arndale overlooking the English lounge. Small selection of cask ales and eclectic bottle selection had a quick pint which was in excellent condition and picked up a couple of bottles

Small place inside huge shopping mall in city center. Iím really not a fan of shopping centers, but this bar wasnít that bad experience. During my visit there was a rat hunt going on behind the bar. Cask selection is interesting but limited. Decent bottle selection. Really not sure if Iíd visit this one again.

Visited this little haven in the Arndale centre a couple of times. Beers from Boggart plus guests from the north of England as a rule that are well kept. Good selection of bottles to keep you amused. Food is available from a myriad of local outlets. Worth the stop and plenty of places nearby too.

Visited on Friday 17th April 2015. I think that I may be going against the grain here, but I wasnít overly impressed with this place. Let me just clarify that statement by stating that it isnít that there is anything necessarily wrong with this place, it is just that I am really surprised that this is in the top 5 in Manchester. Ok on the plus side it is situated in a shopping centre (a very large one at that) and therefore I would imagine for some that it is great to get some respite from shopping by finding that a place like this is on site, however I wasnít shopping and went straight there so not burdened by the shopping issue. It appeared very relaxed and quite casual with a nice mix of clientele, and it is a simple layout. It is situated by the windows that overlook the High Street and tram stops in the food market part of this centre. I wasnít particularly impressed with the beers on offer on tap (maybe I just hit it at the right time,but I saw nothing that interested me) and I was also unimpressed by the bottle selection, ok so that might be me being a bit sniffy, but the bottles seemed to feature too many easily obtainable macro beers and ciders that almost any supermarket would stock. So not a bad place by any stretch of the imagination, it just didnít really offer anything for me and Loz.

Nice little bar in the middle of a shopping center. Selection is not big but there are some cask ales. Nice retreat in the middle of the busy city center. Visited September 2013.

A great little pub/market stall with an excellent selection of bottles and some draught beers. A great place to hang out at whilst your superior half is shopping!

Called in on an impromptu visit to Manchester. Had a bit of trouble finding the place as itís fairly hidden but once there found it hard not to marvel at the bounty held within. A very impressive selection of lesser known, smaller micro-breweries from Wales and the North in general. Sat at the bar you kind of felt every market should have a little bar like this. Friendly, jocular locals (one in particular was chatting about Jeff Beckís lesser known backstage habits as if he was his best mate).. and a friendly lady behind the tiny bar. One of the bottles I picked to take away was a couple of weeks out of date so they gave it me for free but that was my only complaint really. A great atmosphere compared to the hipster dens nearby and their cringeworthy reggae-pop music (well, the one I went in anyway). Overall, well worth a visit.
