Almost 7 years since I was last in here, I returned yesterday afternoon. It's better than I remember it. The ale and cider selection is excellent. With 6 real ciders on offer, there were 5 I'd never previously tried. So, I had to work my way through each of them. The ceiling appears to have been restored on one side of the bar. But there's still netting to stop any falling down! The ale choice was Anarchy Meltdown Expected, Neptune Shifting Sands, Bristol Beer Factory White Milk Stout, Wilde Child Excessive Behaviour & Over Indulgence, Mallinson's Taiheke & Cwrw Ial Atlantic 252. The ciders were Ascension Dabinett & Wrath, Nightingale Discovery, Kniveton Wynsum & Bartestree Moorcroft Blend Perry & Fiona Cider. I think I now have to classify this as my favourite pub in Manchester. I need to get back here much more often.

Interesting place - definitely worth a visit. Good selection of beers and they had 5 real ciders being served from a little side-bar - from polypins by the looks of it.
Character place, looks like it might have been a theatre or something at one point in it's past.

Been a while since I last visited and even longer since I left a review. This place has definitely improved over recent years and now has 8 hand pumps at the bar meaning plenty to choose from.

No issue finding somewhere to sit, but seemed busy than I remember it had been in the past, without being uncomfortably packed out. I guess it has benefited from the increased popularity of the Northern Quarter and its decent selection of ales helping to make it more worthwhile to cross the road for.

Not at all pretentious, just a decent pub with decent ales. Would recommend!

Probably my favourite Manc pub, along with Marble Arch. The well judged beer range, excellently served (Tickety Boo superb) and setting all great. Not as busy as some pubs on Sunday matchday, which surprised me.

Agree with wobblybob this place has vastly improved possibly due to competition in the area. 9 real ales on in my last visit with 25 plus ciders in the back room. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and always willing to let you have tasters.
