Mainly, its about beer.  We have 6 hand pumps serving real ale, one of which is always Hawkshead Windermere Pale.  One or two are always dark beers.The other pumps serve rotating guest beers from Manchester breweries and some farther afield!

We have 4 keg fonts, anything goes here; a regular is original Budvar, Thornbridge Lukas, plus the best of (mainly ) Manchester breweries producing beer in key keg or even (whisper it) just keg.  we don’t mind as long as it takes good – and it usually does!!

Additionally, we also serve real cider from our dedicated fridge, plus more cider from the cellar.

As if that isn’t enough we serve a fine range of gins and wines, Belgian beers in the correct glasses and some craft cans and special bottled beers when they come available.

We specialise in dark and unusual beers, some very high strength beers.

We also hold regular tasting events upstairs, which sell out very quickly – usually about 4-5 a year.
