Went in at lunchtime, lured by their 'express lunch' as we're in a hurry. They don't have the drink we want or brown bread for the sandwiches but we're in a hurry so we ordered (one soup, two sandwiches, one side of fries) and waited. And waited.

15 minutes later we asked how long the 'express' was going to be and were told it was on its way. And we waited.

15 minutes later we said we couldn't wait any longer. Apparently it was "just on its way" but by then we had to be off. Half an hour, no-one else being served food and no sign of two meals that could have been cooked from scratch in ten minutes at home, never mind in a fully-prepared restaurant kitchen.

We paid for the drinks, although anywhere with an iota of customer service would have comped them without prompting. Seven pounds for a pint of cider and a Coke. As you can imagine, I'll not be returning.

Overpriced and stuffy. Not my cup of tea personally. Shall not visit again. Friendly enough though.

Overpowering smell of Bovril. Unsure if this is a theme...

Bowled in here as the first stop on a mini-crawl of Manchester as it was just up the road from my hotel. Not that impressed to be honest; If you've been to the B Lounge off Deansgate it is more of the same here; Theakston's Best and Thwaites Bomber kept but I doubt in brilliant condition; I had a San Miguel and moved on fairly swiftly. Stank of disinfectant which didn't improve matters.

This pub is now called the B Lounge it's a chain of only 2 pubs, both in Manchester, the other is the Bridge, hence the name. Sells Theakston Best and Old Peculiar plus Thwaites Bomber. The beer is pretty averagely kept but the wine's OK according to the other half. It's OK for one occasionally. If you apply for a free B Lounge card you get 10% off at both pubs.
