The sort of stylish alternative bar that is very quickly becoming somewhat ubiquitous across the land. No doubt there are dozens of this type of hipsters bar in Manchester where you can be reasonably confident that the bushier the ovular beard the more you have to pay. For the record this modestly sized slightly cramped bar sported three cask and ales and other fashionable beer dispensers that resemble ice sculpture. The bar staff were adequate but not overly welcoming. My pint of Pictish (can't remember exactly what if was called) was quite excellent though.6/10.

I'd say this bar is in the wrong position and possibly better suited to Didsbury. But just an opinion. In terms of real ale I found it to be a bit warm possibly because I was first in and to my knowledge they hadn't pulled any off beforehand. If I was to suggest a better place to go it would be the Knott bar.

Small bar not too far from Deansgate station with knowledgeable bar staff and 3 real ales. 2 Welsh beers from Facers - This Splendid Ale & Winter Porter were on alongside Pictish Brewer's Gold. There was no real cider. Although there is a decent selection of bottled ciders in the fridges. Worth combining with the nearby Knott Bar.

Yes fine, couple of beers in very good nick, expensive though and only three handpumps on. Worth a call, it's cosy and welcoming. Big choice of bottled beers.
(Wonder how �poor� students (below) can afford �4 for a bottle of Rochefort)?

My normal passion is real ale but I was doing a search for Belgian beers on Google, looking to broaden my tastes and came across this place. I've tried Duvel, Chimay Blue and Red but not much else and figured a bar is going to have more choice than a shop. I read a few reviews and wanted to come here thinking it sounded my sort of pub and when I entered it felt like my type of pub!

The bar is tucked away like a corner-shop and even with a full rucksack after a hard day of Uni felt very welcome, I had a bottle of Rochefort 8 at �4.40, I've read prices �1 more for places in Sheffield and felt it was off to a good start. Its a small pub and I managed to share a table with two Spanish women, there was a definite mix of people in here, young and old and it just felt a very relaxing place to have a drink.

I had a half of Titanic - Lifeboat afterwards which was in good condition, �1.50 for that and I was again impressed. Its tucked out of the way and I think I'm going to definitely return next week instead of my usual Friday trip to Spoons. It certainly won't be my last visit!
