Escape Bar, Chorlton cum Hardy

Went in today for a coffee while waiting for a bus and was surprised to see three handpumps on the counter. Spoke to the new owner who took over a month ago who turns out to be a knowledgable real ale supporter, one time cellarman for Tetley's and lover of Robinson's ales. He plans to have one cider, one permanent choice and guest beers including Robbie's seasonal beers on Draught. Also a load of Belgian bottles visible. Early Dylan was playing while I was there which I suppose goes with the beer.
Good news if you like this kind of thing as it's the only drink oriented bar at the Bus Station and had gone a long way downhill recently.
More info when I visit again for a beer.

Joshua Brooks, Manchester

Wandered in to see United-Arsenal game. Atmosphere no worse than usual for this Londoner in voluntary Lancashire exile. Was pleasantly surprised to find a decent - if slightly too cold - pint of Bombardier for 2. Will check again if this special offer or permanent fixture, especially as I have gone off the Lass of Gowrie which has become very expensive.

The Lower Ground Bar, West Hampstead

I also went for the jazz.

This place would make (is?) a really nice intimate music venue. Decor and atmosphere are fine.

The only problem is that everything else definitely isn't. Beer crap and expensive. Still, flies seem to like the place judging by the swarms of them in the Gents.
