Nice micropub owned by the Marble brewery so the beer is excellent and probably the best in Chorlton.

Enjoyable, as all the Marble bars are. Here I enjoyed a Tickety Brew Pale Ale and then a Marble Pint. Really enjoyed the Marble Pint, very nice beer.

Very agreeable pub with efficient service, well-kept ales and a pleasant outside drinking area at the front. Well worth a visit.

Decent modern style ale house, pretty busy on our Saturday mid-afternoon visit.

Finally made it to Chorlton yesterday after being on my "to do list."

This was the last port of call which turned out to be my favourite. Sampled Chocolate Marble which was simply divine. Price wise it was as you would expect from "bohemia" expensive. £3.50 a pint!

Had a chat with the Wigan branch of CAMRA who were on a tour of the area.

Will I return? Undoubtedly and resoundingly YES.

Thank you very much Dean Lane. My brother and his wife went on the metro and informed that there are quite a few bars around chorlton. I will put it on my "to do list".

A belated reply to realalerules1983: the Metrolink tram network has recently been extended to Chorlton and that's the quickest way to reach the place now. The trams carry the destination "St Werburgh's Road". The Chorlton stop is on Wilbraham Road, which is where most of Chorlton's modern bars can be found.

You can overlook the Marble Beer House for now as it's been going through several rapid and unexplained changes of management. And to respond to nokegthanks: it's owned by the same people as the Marble Arch in Manchester.

Once in a while your humble narrator feels the need to explore "Bohemia", where the hipsters choose to go. Chorlton being Manchester's version of such a place, I ventured in and found myself in a small space, the walls adorned by strange paintings from a local "artist".

The one room is comfortable enough and service is brisk and efficient. Drank a couple of stouts, one from Marble and a guest, both palatable. Acceptable but the Arch is a much better pub and closer to the city centre, although prices are similar!

Is this place worth a visit from manchester city centre? If so what are the best public transport options? Train or bus? Anyone know bus number routes etc? Is it as expensive as the Marble Arch on Rochdale Road?

Long may it last

I went there couple of times but often so its near my flat which is about 2 mins walk. I guess the pub is pretty good and liked the atomphere of it. I never knew one guest ale got chocolate in it!!! I'm still scared to drink that.

Easy to miss it the first time, which I did. But worth finding. More like a bar than a pub but the range of beer was good. Busy but a comfortable feel, no music.

Well worth a visit if you are in the area. All the normal Marble range plus around 2 guests ales. Small but cosy.

"Its good, but its not right"

Good pub, but not up to its collyhurst incarnation which out-does it in terms of beer and atmosphere.

Well worth a visit tho.

One of the best pubs in Chorlton. Great for real ales; always got some guest ales on, some good some not so good. Would like to see them selling a few more dark beers.

Best Pub in Chorlton. It's always busy, even on a week night early doors. Interior nicely scruffy
Fantastic real ale (big range of Marble and a few guests)
Decent range of bottles - Belgian favourites Chimay, Duvel etc)
They're even dog friendly

Guardian reading crowd of a certain age.

Being a Guardian reader of a certain age, this wasn't really a problem for me.

One barmaid was friendly and useless, the other less cahatty, but far more efficient.

Beer wasn't all that, in fairness, but had a good crack even so.

A nice bar, good atmos even though the people are a little skitish, I went in there with a friend of mine who is a bit of an ale can and he scared nearly everyone in the place, but the bar staff still had a laff with it. The beer on tap aint to hot but the bottled stuff is good value and a good range. Well worth a look before you head of somewhere else, but not a place id recommend for the long slog.

someone else said 'not for the younger generation'... what do they think the 'younger generation' are looking for? 'funky' lighting, plastic chairs and alcopops? hmm...
the marble's great.. tasty, changing ales, snacks from the unicorn and a faintly shambolic, warm and lovely atmosphere

This boozer is more like a half-desserted retirement home, rather than a pub or bar. Looks cheap and shoddy in apperarance.

Really used to like this pub. However, havn't been in since the beer started tasting really odd and flat. My Dad took his pint back to the bar and was greeted by a disgruntled barmaid, who had the cheek to suggest that it was fine 'cos everyone else was drinking it! As if those boozed up, old blokes know what they are drinking! Seriously, though the beer was not nice.

Small, intimate venue. Mainly for 30-something Regatta-coat wearing profs having a few beers. A good range of house beers, including Pictish ale. A bit too small though and not for the younger generation.
