user reviews of Allotment, Manchester

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Paid another visit a couple of months back and the music did not seem so intrusive this time. Also had better luck on the ale front, the one we wanted was on, although the barman did seem to get very confused with our basic order of 2 pints of the same ale and we nearly ended up with 4 pints of 2 different ales.

The ale was much better on this visit, from memory I seem to remember we ended up on the house ale last time, which was something else rebadged, so always a bit of pot luck involved there.

Would happily return.

Very busy on Saturday evening. Another place that likes its music loud. On entering there was an interesting aroma - the mix of fish and coffee - thanks to a table of diners near the bar and presumably not some quirky air freshener (but anything is possible in the Northern Quarter).

At the bar there were four hand pumps, all looked unusual and not the usual national stuff. Unfortunately the ale we wanted went off mid-pour, so had to make another selection. This was a pale house ale and had a strange metallic taste to it, not dissimilar to drinking a can of Red Stripe straight from the tin. On the upside it was served in a proper dimpled glass tankard.

Not my round but was apparently £6-ish for two pints, which is not at all bad for the area.

It is a bit of a quirky place with the gardening and allotment paraphernalia hanging from the ceiling, just a shame it was so bloody loud and the ale I had was a bit disappointing.

Tried visiting this place last night. It is advertised as open to midnight. But at 11pm last night, they were not serving any more. The barman claimed it was too quiet and they were closing early. There were still several groups in. So we didn't quite buy this. 0/10 for a place that you can't rely on to be open.

Another bar/old pub that's popped up around the area very close to mother macs. Been in now on several occasions but this time we tried the food which was overall very good and locally sourced. The beer selection is sometimes a bit on the safe side although on the plus side there was one from a local brewery called tweed which is becoming very popular in this area. This place is decorated to give the feel of its name and little bit quirky.
