First tried to get in here on a night out many years ago and it was so packed it was impossible and we just turned round and went elsewhere. Visited during an afternoon crawl a few weeks back and didn't struggle for a seat but it did start to slowly fill up. Disappointed there was no real ale on the pumps but settled for a pint of Guinness which was perfectly acceptable. Later noticed the big chalk board next to the bar listing all their bottled ales. I will know for next time! That said, I doubt I will be in a rush to return. It is worth a trip for the novelty value but the musty dank smell down there made it a bit unpleasant really. Perhaps when it gets busier it's not as noticeable.

Well, you are either going to give this a 0 or something much higher.

I had read about it and keen to find out more. We arrived. The music outside is louder than inside, but when Iggy is blasting out "I wanna be your dog" at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon - you do think twice about entering.

Basically, it is a toilet. But a toilet with a fine jukebox and Coniston blue bird that I haven't had since I was last in Coniston.

Weird place. I will be back.

"There's a hole in my neighbourhood down which of late I cannot help but fall".

As referenced in Grounds for Divorce (Elbow), this is a really interesting hideaway, slap bang in the middle of town.

No cask ale, but plenty of bottled alternatives.

Frequented by some interesting types; nice mix of people. Not exactly spacious, though, so you'll do well to get a seat at peak times.

I love bringing people here when visiting. Half decent beer with some bottles ales like Bluebird. The toilets are proper Grim. Can also attract an odd crowd of city slickers and lairy football fans so be careful when you visit.

A very unique pub that is a must for a good pub crawl around Manchester. A decent selection of beers, mostly bottled but it is let down by the state of the toilets. Some amusing graffiti which seems encouraged but very dirty.
I would go back for novelty value.
