I was attracted to this place when I saw the various belgian beer signs outside and thought Id stop off for refreshment on my way to the football museum. Really strong selection of belgian beers, plus cask ale and real cider. Was served straight away and found a brilliant jukebox. Could have easily have spent a whole afternoon here. Interesting decor.

Visited this quirky, lively pub on 30th September 2016. A real eclectic mix of characters in the clientele, friendly bar staff. The gentleman who served me even researched the brewery to answer one of my questions on a beer. Ales well-kept, and a good selection of Belgian and German drought beers are available together with a fair range of bottles. There was a great buzz to the place. Well-deserving of its GBG entry.

Quirky bar that is typical of the Northern Quarter in Manchester, it attracts a diverse range of characters. The bar itself contains among other weird things, a bat hanging from the ceiling, a motorbike and numerous empty Belgian beer bottles. My pint of Porter was good enough and not badly priced, worth popping in as part of a pub crawl.

One of the best places I found with a decent belgian and german beer selection. Also quite decent british ale selection. Well worth a visith.

We visited Bar Fringe on Saturday 18th April 2015. Wed been here before a number of years ago when attending the CAMRA National Winter Beer Festival when it was held in the city. It was busy on this visit the bar area was swarmed and there was precious few places to perch until we saw a table at the rear which a couple let us sit and join them. Decor and furnishing wise this is busy with lots of Belgian beer signs, mirrors etc on the walls and a good selection of Belgian beers (and correct glassware) on tap and in bottles. Though at the far end of the bar there are 5-6 handpumps with a good selection on offer. The bar staff were really busy but were doing a good job. The clientele was a nice mix with a good number of locals amongst. I like this place, its quirky, but interesting and bridges the divide nicely between visiting the Marble Arch and pubs/bars in the Northern Quarter.
