What we do

Four hand-pulled real ales. Usually local and ever-changing: we often have casks from Brightside, Cloudwater, Dunham Massey, Marble and many other local breweries from the burgeoning Manchester beer scene. You can find out what’s on tap through our posts on Facebook or Twitter, by downloading the Real Ale Finder app and following us there for live updates, or you can bookmark our live beer board.

Eight craft kegs on tap.  You can rely on us to serve Hogan’s draught cider, local IPAs from the likes of Burton Road, Pomona Island, Shindigger etc plus whatever else takes our fancy. We have a dedicated tap for sours, with frequent Continental and American imports too. Strange Times of Salford make our house lager, Lorelai.

Bottled & canned beers from around the world & from around the corner. Although we work direct with as many local producers as possible, we also offer many fine Continental and American beers too like Augustiner, Evil Twin and assorted Trappist brews. These are all refrigerated and ready for you to take home, or crack open a cool one in our drinking parlour. At last count we have over 150 beers and ciders in our fridges. We welcome special orders plus sell gift vouchers and gift boxes.

Cider, perry & fruit ciders.  We have Hogan’s Ciders on draught and bottles from the likes of Dunkerton. All as traditional and natural as possible.

Wine & fizz. A small but choice selection, by the glass or by the bottle. The Argentinian malbec and Marlborough sauvignon blanc are particularly popular.

Whiskies. Only from true independents like Springbank, Kilchoman and Arran, mainly from distilleries we have personally visited ourselves.

Small-batch gin, rum and vodka.  We stock the best gins from many Manchester distilleries including Three Rivers & Zymurgorim. All are served in balloon glasses with Fever-Tree tonic as standard. Sapling British vodka, an aged white rum and Admiral J’s spiced rum round out our spirits selection.

Gluten-free and low-alcohol beers. 

Soft drinks.

Nibbles. Traditional bar snacks including Fiddler’s crisps from Lancashire and as well as luxury mixed nuts, bombay mix and sweets.

Free Wi-Fi.

Our ‘meet the brewer/distiller’ nights, brewery takeovers and other events are announced on Facebook and Twitter.
