Went for a quick meal before heading the cinema, ordered and it came fairly quickly but were very shocked at how small the portions were. The burgers are tiny and my partner and I were left leaving hungry still. However, the place is very nice, and the man behind the bar was helpful when the card machine wasn't working and... More

The staff here were extremely friendly, the cocktails well done and imaginative, and the food of exceptional quality. It is not fancy and the menu selections are limited and changing, but they served me one of the best burgers I have ever eaten!

New to Manchester, I saw this place on a visit Manchester website. Not disappointed! Food was reasonably priced and fairly swift, tasty too! Meatball pizza was delicious. The decor of this place was nice, dim lighting, candles and copper covered tables. It works! The best part of this bar was the cocktails. The guy behind the bar was a wizard,... More

Never been here before and had a great time. Good food and drinks, would have been better if they had draft beer down stairs. Nice atmosphere for a bar, good amount of seating

Visited here yesterday afternoon/evening and as always beautifully crafted cocktails! We tried quite a few although my husband became pretty hooked on Sex Panther lol! Nice bar and ambience in the fabulous northern quarter, food looked good too but we had just eaten or would have given that a whirl to! Thanks tusk for the lush drinks!

Had a wowcher deal for four cocktails so excellent value. Was advised to book and was happy to find a table waiting for us. Had to order all four drinks at the same time and due to the nature of cocktails they took a little time to mix but where definitely worth the wait.

Thank Verdivc
