Great bar in fab location, few steps from Manchester Oxford station. Very busy bar and love the chilled modern industrial retro decor. Friendly staff and good beer. Didn’t eat but the food looked fab

Excellent service from Paddy - don't think we would have been any better looked after if we owned the place. Thank you, much appreciated. Food was fantastic - as always. :-)

Not too far, but you've got Uber there too. Very quick, very cheap, kind of the best way to get round the city certainly for short trips like that
