What do you fancy?

Four hand-pulled real ales. Usually local and always changing: we often have casks from Blackedge, Dunham Massey, Howard Town, Marble and many other local breweries from the burgeoning Manchester beer scene. You can find out what’s on tap through our updates on Facebook or Twitter.

Six craft kegs on tap.  We’ve doubled our keg offering to make room for Hogan’s draught cider, local IPAs from the likes of Runaway, Seven Brothers etc and whatever else takes our fancy (fruit beers, saisons, sours…). We have a dedicated font for American imports (Firestone Walker, Sierra Nevada etc). Outstanding Beers (recently relocated and now in Salford) make a cracking Continental-style pilsner which we serve in custom-made glasses. Outstanding’s Stout is superb as well.

Bottled 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 Anchor, Augustiner, Brussels Beer Project, Cantillon, Dry & Bitter, Evil Twin, Founders and Stone. Select a few from our shelves to take home or crack open a cool one in our drinking parlour. About once a month carry out a ‘beer census’ to see what all we have in stock, the latest results of which can be found here.

Cider, perry & fruit ciders.  We have Hogan’s Ciders on draught and bottles from the likes of Dunkerton and Manchester’s own Moss Cider. 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 every gin from all the Manchester distilleries (Faith  & Sons, Three Rivers, Manchester & Three Rivers) plus Macclesfield’s Forest Gin and Monkey 47. All are served in balloon glasses with Fever-Tree tonic as standard. Blackwoods Scottish vodka, Rebellion white rum and Admiral J’s spiced rum round out our spirits selection. We sell all our spirits by the bottle to take home, POA.

Gluten-free and low-alcohol beers. From Brew Dog, Jever and Estrella.

Soft drinks. Handmade locally using traditional recipes and all-natural ingredients by Mac’s Soda: cloudy lemonade, dandelion & burdock, ginger beer, virgin mojito and cola. We also have fruit juices, ginger ale, lemonade, cordials and sparkling spring water.

Nibbles. Traditional bar snacks including Fiddler’s crisps from Lancashire as well as nuts, bombay mix (gluten-free & nut-free alternative available) and sweets.

Free Wi-Fi.

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