On the other side of the Mancunian Way to the city centre, this bar is located in the thriving University district and is not short of students frequenting it. It’s in an old brick building and utilises its old features superbly including tiles, stone floors and exposed walls throughout a collection of open plan rooms on the ground floor. It has an appealing rustic appearance using old wooden tables, chairs and benches for its furniture. The ale selection is good and is the first feature of the bar as you walk in, and only one of the seven pumps was a Phoenix beer. There’s a non too typical collection of lagers further around. Food is served and is reasonably priced.

Café/bar/pub in the univsersity area. They have a lot of beer, but not all of it is very interesting. On my visits, there has usually not been much on the three or four handpumps they have, though the real ales I’ve tried (mainly from Phoenix) have been in good form. Decent selection of German and Belgian bottled beers. And I think the Phoenix Pilsner is exclusively brewed for this place. Efficient and friendly service. Can get quite lively during evenings, with a lot of students. Nice place, but slightly off the beaten pub track in Manchester.

Excellent relaxed bar/pub in the University/Metropolitan area. Good mix of clientèle - not dominated by the usual Student Grant types. Friendly bar staff but the small bar area can lead to congestion when it gets rammed on Fridays after work. Usually 6 real ales on offer with approximately 10 lagers (Budvar, Krombacher, etc plus the unique Phoenix Pilsner) also available. Decent range of bottled beers including Trapiste Rochefort 10 amongst others. Not the cheapest, but probably the best value in the area. Food available but I’ve not sampled it so can’t comment. Watch out for ghastly jazz band on, I think, Tuesdays.
