Brilliant quirky little bar come food eatery. Limited'ish menu but what i had was superb! The beer was spot on, good head and clarity was impeccable. I had the oddest burger which was lovely, couldnt quite understand why the chips were upsold as an extra at £1.50, £8.00 just for the burger on its own isnt exactly cheap, however it... More

Decided to try the Oddest I'm not a massive lamb fan, but the Sunday roast lamb was delicious.. Plenty of tasty veg. Very enjoyable

Typical Chorlton bar that's busy in the evenings and weekends, but also serves up some decent grub for brunch. Recently visited for brunch and lunch, and enjoyed on both occasions. At the weekend there always seems to be something going on - be it live music or a bbq - and their standard menu has all the usual favourites on... More

Eclectic decor and a good choice of beer on tap. Go on a Wednesday for the quiz, everyone wins a prize!

I'm not a big eater by any means, I often struggle to finish a main course when going out to eat, but main I ordered here was so tiny that I actually had to eat a 2nd meal when I got home. To add insult to injury the main costed more than a few of the other options in the... More

We went for vegan brunch last Sunday. It was delicious and the staff are very friendly. I would liked to have given it a 5 but they had run out of non-dairy milk and they do not offer a non-dairy spread. We mentioned this to the staff who said they should offer it. This could be so easily rectified as... More

Everything about the place is classy. The place is the trendiest bar in chorlton. The menu is top class. The variety of drinks is copious. The staff are friendly. The music nights (especially the vinyl appreciation nights) are really enjoyable. Great funky quiz on a Wednesday too. One of the quiz guys also doubles as a barperson and always has... More

I really like the food and drink here but don't like the rudeness of a couple of their staff. Have returned many times despite the service due to the aforementioned food and drink quality but now will not as there are plenty of bars with similar quality and better service nearby

Used to come here years ago and loved it. Came today for the first time in ages. It's gone downhill unfortunately. Ordered a pint of Becks which was awful. The beer lines clearly haven't been cleaned for a while. Ordered the burger which was really bland and over cooked. No check back from the server, she was too busy texting/Facebooking... More
