Basement pub with limited seating. Live DJ the night I went, playing very loud Dub music. Tap selection was good, featuring micro beer from Church Key, Wellington, St Ambroise, plus a few less interesting ones (Boddingtons). Scotch Irish was listed but was unavailable. Did not notice bottle selection. Small menu, but I tried the Black Bean/Chili dip and it was very good. Younger crowd, students and alternative types.

Cozy basement pub that had people in their 20ís,30ís,50ís and 70ís eating and drinking when I was there.
Glasses of beer are served in half full pint glasses-reason given is small place and lack of space.
Enjoyed myself and would go back again.

Definitely one of Ottawaís better pubs. Itís a basement bar with dark wood and low lighting. The beer selection is Ontario focused with a mix of familiar and some more interesting. Servers are friendly and welcoming. Thereís an interesting food menu as well. Good spot.

Small basement pub, a bit cramped. Low lighting, small copper tables, artwork on the walls. Around 20 taps, mostly local as well as Ontarioís usual suspects (Muskoka, Beaus, Wellington, Spearhead, etc). Friendly and efficient service. The perfect place for a long night of drinking

Great brews on tap, friendly service, and a fine and tasty menu. Ambiance is cozy and laid back. Always a fine time at The Manx! And where Danny Michel started playing gigs in Ottawa...

Nice crowded hole in the wall close to downtown Ottawa. Had a seat at the bar and got some decent recommendations on their various beers. Good food, nice thick cut fries. Prices were okay and on par with the city. Pretty good place, though can be hard to get a seat on a busy night.

Comfy, cozy, and lively even on a Monday night. Great vibe that is genuinely reminiscent of an English pub. No real ales though. Friendly service and although the selection isnít that hot, they have enough to keep it interesting.

Great little basement pub in Ottawa. If you cannot get out to the Cheshire Cat than check out the Manx. Decent tap list and good food. Tends to get full early in the evening

Small cellar bar. I had the Wellington County Arkell Best Bitter which I could not make up my mind whether it was off or not. Visit marred by the poorest pub performer I have ever come across, which was made worse by massive over-amplification. I visited on a Monday: perhaps he only performs then.

A great basement pub with a great atmosphere as long as you donít mind the lack of windows. Seating is a little tight and its always crowded, they donít take reservations either; but of course that is all part of the charm and the great food and fairly good beer and decent scotch selection more then make up for it. A decent selection of locals and imports (St Ambroise, Kitchisippi, Churchkey) with rotating taps and seasonals on a fairly regular basis. Of course its the food and service that bring this place to the next level - Ottawa isnít exactly well known for its pubs but this is probably the best one all around - a place that I would be more then happy to spend the day, evening or night.

Stopped in here yesterday for a laid back pub crawl with a fellow beer geek my age. Need little place, subterranean, with lots of high wooden chairs. Has a very cramped feel to it, though it didnít bother me much. Some might call it intimate. Menu looked impressive in terms of culinary creativity and genuine quality, though I only had a sample of some delicious crab cakes. Bar is full of Ontario craft stuff, with some good offerings you wouldnít find outside of the Ottawaish area. Service was rushed but not unfriendly, the place seems to be super busy almost all of the time. Music would have been a really nice touch, though I understand that they often do have a DJ come in. Prices were reasonable considering itís Ottawa. Over-all I enjoyed my visit and would come back for sure.
