Always try to visit here when in Manchester. A great little bar in the Arndale shopping center. Good selection of draught beers from around the world plus bottles that are also available for take away. Nice place to sit and watch the world go by.

Im gonna copy Charlotte on this one Lovely little pub in the HUUUUGE shoppingcenter.. Being a part of the shoppingcenter the openinghours is not what you would expect from a pub, but follows the normal opening hours of the center. Friendly staff, and at most times the beers are in a good condition. But add that something like this is a dlight to find in a shopping centre and even better its often got some great Brodies beers on. I really like this place

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 One of the bottles I picked to take away was a couple of weeks out of date so they gave it me for free but that was my only complaint really.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.

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!

Small bar in the Arndale Centre. A couple of cask beers on, including a lager and strawberry beer from Phoenix. Not a bad selection of bottled beers also available with a fairly wide and reasonably priced selection. Worth a look.

Tucked away in the very interesting multi nationality food court of the Arndale Centre (donít go to the big multinational food cout upstairs like I did first!!). This is a great little respite from retail hell and compliments the surrounding outlets very well. Cask beers in good nick, decently priced. Good UK bottle selection, Sierra Nevada PA on tap and rotating cask beers. A good little find.

Quite an insane idea to stick this oasis of quality beer in the middle of a food court, but it works wonderfully. Beer range isnít bad at all, and you can buy a couple of bottles to take home.

To avoid getting lost in the gigantic Arndale shopping centre it is best to head straight to the number 49 in High Street where the bar is located just inside the entrance with a flower shop near by. MicroBar is well worth a visit, it is not only a little cask ale pub, but also a bottle shop with good selection of, hard-to-find, British beers and continental beers. The bar is an outlet for the Boggart brewery and there were three of them on cask and even a few more on bottles. Friendly service offering samples of their cask ales. Decent price level (visited, 05.07.2012).

Worth the search to get to this place. Itís a mini shop & bar in one. A great selection of local ales together with lots of good stuff particularly from USA and Belgium. A number of bottled beers are cooled and available to drink at the bar. They had a Kolsch on tap!
