About the Pub

The Sandbar features a real ale selection on eight pumps (including a permanent real cider line and an occasional dark mild line). The vast majority of the beers come from Greater Manchester and the surrounding areas (such as Frirst Chop, Marble, Blackjack, Outstanding, Greenmill, Hornbeam, Phoenix, Buxton, RedWillow (Macclesfield), Happy Valley (Bollington) and many more). Locally brewed beer is something which is very important to them and even extends to their keg selection, which includes two lagers and a stout from Outstanding, plus a Pilsner and fruit beer from Phoenix. Situated in the heart of the university area, Sandbar is an interesting conversion of old Georgian townhouses attracting custom from both lecturers and students. The atmosphere is bohemian and arty and this is reflected in the excellent beer range both on cask and in bottle (where foreign specialities feature). Exhibitions of photographs and paintings usually line the walls while DJs or live music feature in the evenings. The interesting and varied menu of home-made pizzas are available 12-9 Mon-Wed; 12-10 Thu-Sat; 12-9 Sun. Sandwiches are available too. The cider is a changing guest from small producers. Occasional beer festivals are held. NB: the pub is does NOT take cash, it only accepts cards.
