About the Pub

Modern beer cafe (you may wish to style it as a micropub, but the owners don't) set in former shop premises on a shopping parade near Burnage railway station. Its small and inconspicuous facade hides quite a long interior; this comprises a small seating area to the front, the bar on the right with a few high stools in front of it. Behind the customers are shelves stacked with British microbrewers bottles and cans on sale to either take away or consume inside. The three handpulls should always stock a porter / stout, a bitter, and a pale ale; on the bar-back are displayed the six taps for keg or key-keg beers. A partial wall divides this room from the more secluded rear room; this can accommodate about 16-20 people. All of this is decorated in a two-tone colour scheme of cream, and a blue-grey; the result is pleasant and calming. Cider comes from a bag-in-box arrangement behind the bar. Three-thirds flights will be introduced soon. Its stated role is to sell locally and independently made real ales and craft beer to sit in or take away. The bar will focus on community and hopes to attract further investment into this part of Manchester. This area of Burnage had hitherto been very under-pubbed till this bar opened. NB. as of late 2019 the bar now takes CARD payments only, it no longer accepts cash.

Historic Interest

Elena Rowe and family, together with her boyfriend, Andrew had a passion for good beer, so they formed this beer cafe which duly opened for business on 14/1/2017.
