I have been here a few times for lunch. Bar staff always lovely. Food always arrives fast and always good. Never had any reason for complaints here!

Was my first visit with a group of friends from work. Really nice bar large enough for lots of people but cosy as well. Different seating areas and levels. Bar staff friendly. Had a good selection of food. Had a veggie wrap with chips and coleslaw it was only £6 and was really fresh and tasty.Will definitely return here when in Manchester.

It was my first visit here. Lovely welcome to me and my 2 dogs. A cold wet afternoon in Manchester, the place was lovely and warm spotless and so friendly. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. We will certainly return, especially when it’ll be nice enough to sit on the lovely terrace on the canal side.
