user reviews of the Old Dancer, Wilmslow

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

Would disagree with the café/bar description as it is more a shop conversion micropub. They had four ales on (The Tatton best was rather nice) and everyone in the place was drinking ale - no food, coffee or cocktails in sight. There is a bit out back and an upstairs bit too which I didn't venture into.

Formerly a lap-dancing club – hence the name. More of a cafe-bar than a pub, but a good range of beers is available. Just about the only drinking establishment on one of Wilmslows main shopping streets. Part of a small chain, they have similar establishments that I’ve already visited in Congleton & Macclesfield, so I knew what to expect.

The seating is at wooden chairs & tables, with a wooden floor. There are various murals on the walls. The bar is on the right as you enter, and features 5 or 6 handpumps, plus a similar number of craft keg beers. I tried a couple of local real ales from Deva and Cheshire Brewhouse. Whilst nice they weren’t particularly thrilling – and cost significantly more than other places in town.

So far so good – so why wasn’t I impressed with the place ? Well for a start, the predominant decor was black, which made it hard to see much. And I’m afraid the place lacked atmosphere – perhaps due to the fact it was almost empty on a Saturday lunchtime. There is also the matter of the Beer Menu. I noticed a number of bottles in the fridge behind the bar. On each table there was a beer menu, giving details of these bottles, descriptions and little boxes where you could enter your ratings for things like aroma and taste. The one thing not mentioned were any prices ! [ I might have tried a bottle otherwise ] Also, wasn’t impressed by the toilets being signposted by a metal plate saying “Urinoir” – too pseudo by half for me ! Oh yes, and there was background music as well – set at the level where it is just too quiet for you to identify the song !

They also do food, but I had already eaten so didn’t investigate further. I believe there is also another bar upstairs, but I didn’t realise there was more than one floor to the place.
