The bar is in a good location next to the university and is a nice alternative the the student union bar across the road. There is a nice range of seating inside and out with good drinks and reasonable food. The service is friendly. There are also private rooms available to book.

Usually I and my student mates visit Kro bar on Fridays as it quite close to the lecture halls. Pros: good location, good menu, variety of drinks, moderate prices, moderate speed of service. Cons: uncomfortable seating space inside, poor lighting so dark inside, sometimes rude barmen. Outcome: we will continue visit this place.

After 2 hours os BSL class I'm now very thirsty. Sadly no dark ale on cask/draft but staff recommended an alternative and she was well educated in the art of real ale and also very friendly. The bar was really busy but I felt staff gave me utmost attention!

This bar is in the middle of the university and definitely has the feel of a student bar. However, the menu is quite aspirational with some interesting-sounding Danish food as well as bar classics. I had a good pint of beer and ordered the schnitzel. I was told I could have two for the price of one as it was... More

Nipped in here for a quick lunch whist in Manchester for business, had a half rack of ribs & chips which were fabulous. No frills student service and the tables are a bit close together, but great value and good food.

This place is a regular for Uni students and for staff in local businesses. I think the food is pricey for what it is but a nice place to sit and eat with a glass of wine in summer after work. Wouldn't be my first pick but staff have always been friendly and helpful and no complaints with the food.

The place is pretty great, and the food is awesome. The setup is a bit messy so sometimes it takes quite a bit to get your order (or to be able to order)... but it's often worth waiting

Went here for breakfast on a Saturday morning, was recommended that it was good food so went to see. The food menu looks good and prices are very good however the staff and atmosphere were not acceptable. First it took us a while to order and substitutes were not accepted which it is fine to say no but don't be... More

I ordered a Coke and usually when it's not Coca-Cola they have to tell you... but they did not... When I started drinking it tasted really bad. I asked them if it was real Coke and they said it wasn't, without really apologising. (It's not even Pepsi)... The worst point of that storry is that they charge you more than... More

Met here for a drink before going over to the museum for a wedding. Large selection of beers from which to choose. Service was prompt and friendly and a relaxing place after a walk down the less than relaxing Oxford Road. Did not have any food but would have contemplated something to eat. Seemed fairly well kept.
