Have to start this review by saying 2 large white wines will set you back £21. The wine is pleasant but really not worth paying the equivalent of two bottles for. Service ordinary, and the view onto the tramlines less than scenic. So many reasons...More

When in Manchester you must visit here if only to watch Mixtologists at their best. It's mesmerising watching the guys - and girls - making their drinks Unbelievable, loads of atmosphere and well worth the short wait to get a drink
