Lively on a Friday evening. Great range of beers on cask, with an edgy keg offering as well, along with a solid assortment of international bottles. Some lambics, even. Good value. Service with a smile. Spacious interior. Great pub from top to bottom. Loved the vibe here.

Phil & Kath durected me here. Advertises itself as the brewery tap for local brewery Blackjack, and had eight on offer plus a wide range of guests, mostly from small breweries near and far. Service at the bar was quick and efficient, and staff were generous with the samples. No panels or flight, just halves in fancy glasses. A very worthwhile stop.

Since being taken over by Manchester’s own Blackjack brewery, the Smithfield has been revamped and now stands (in my view) as one of the best pubs in the city. Ten keg and six cask lines can be found at the bar pouring some excellent choices. Plenty of newspapers, books and board games dotted about as well as darts and a few other bar games available. Located a stone’s throw from Bar Fringe and Crown & Kettle so well worth a mini-crawl around those.

Wow, talk about a basic pub, but not in a good way. Completely devoid of any atmosphere, this place really gives a new meaning to the word bare, if you like minimalism that is. Decided to have a pint of Blackjack and regretted it, tasted awful. Not tempted to sample any others, so I got up and left. Not my kind of boozer!

Visited on Sunday evening in July 2015. Place has been extensively refurbished and all traces of the old pub have gone. Clean, bright interior and new home to Blackjack beers plus guests. Good cask and keg range. Well kept. Staff good and efficient. It used to be the place to visit in Manchester, it’s back on the list as worthy of a stop

The pubs had a few make-overs in the last decade, but it has remained an ale destination each time. In the past it was mainly cask ales sold here, with Facers brewery always having a presence. Today, the Blackjack Brewery now occupy the building and sell their ales as well as guest in both cask and keg. The number of ale pumps has been reduced, but there’s still plenty to choose from and the wide selection of breweries, mostly craft brewers is good. The keg options often include international selections. The decor is bright, modern, although retains something of a pub feel to it, and is a relaxing place to spend some time.

Have visited this pub several times, at my first visit to the NWAF, I stayed at this pub :-).. I have mixed feelings of this place, at first it was very good, then it was a bit down, but at my last visit ( january 2013 ) I think it has emproved a bit again. They have always quit a lot of beers on, during the time of NWAF, many from smaller micros in the north. Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. ( My figures shows the revue from my 2013 visit. )
