About the Pub

Popular and well established Belgian style bar on the fringe of the Northern Quarter of the city. The bar on the left serves the long narrow room. There is also a partially covered beer garden at the rear. Five real ales from near and far as well as a good range of draught and bottled continental beers. The decor is quite eclectic ranging from cartoons to rats and even a motorbike. North Manchester CAMRA branch 'Cider Pub of the Year 2015'. Ducketts of Burnley urinals worth a leak. Apparently the remnants of the long covered River Tib runs through the cellar.
