Great vibe/atmosphere, good cocktails and amazing prices - what more could you ask for. Also a big fan of the graffitied toilets ahah

Went there to find value food and real ciders (they supposedly have a good range of cider). Couldn't see any real ciders and it was very noisy so went elsewhere. Not a place to go for conversation.

Go here all the time for cheap cocktails and inexpensive food, fantastic brunch and lovely food with a tragically changing menu. Closes quite early most of the time.

Big selection of drinks and bar food which is all really quite cheap! I think the most expensive cocktail was £5.50! Spent a couple of chilled hours here one evening, couple of pots of tea (with a free freddo.. win!), some really nice minestrone soup...More

Food is so good really nice veggie options and the curly fries are on point. The staff are sound out but some cocktails are a little bit overly sweet, saying that they're really cheap though!

What can I say the food is good, there are a number of different ales and beers and they serve £2 cocktails. The staff are great and everything is reasonably priced. The atmosphere is really chilled. Worth a visit and another and another...

Although we weren't the oldest people in the place, we did feel out of it. Mainly young females (either university or college) buying their very cheap cocktails. However, on the positive, they do have an interesting range of beers.

Visited while on my friend's hen party, and was surprised at how cheap the drinks were on a Saturday night in Manchester. Prosecco £4, cocktails from £3, unheard of prices! There was also a happy hour from 11pm til 1am of buy one get one...More

Been here a few times with some friends. The cocktails are very good considering the price, even the beers were quite cheap too (2 Tiger beers for £4). Had food here on one occasion as well and it was very tasty with big portions. Great...More
