About the Pub

Re-opened on 04.07.2020 and then closed again shortly after promising to reopen in the Autumn which never happened.

Rumours abound it has closed permanently but this has not been corroborated yet.

With a strapline proclaiming “We know about beer” you’d expect something good. You will not be disappointed. As one of the first of Manchester’s real ale revival pubs, this is a must on anyone’s itinerary.

Nestled under one of the arches forming the Deansgate railway viaduct, The architecture is deceptive, with hints of Arc Deco, industrial chic and Victorian sun loggia. The 25 keg fonts have been relocated to a simple rear wall leaving the eight hand pumps proud and up front. Regular beers are from Wander Beyond, invariably in a range of styles and strengths. Food is now served till 10 and the menu is now predominately based around pizzas and ciabatta sandwiches following a refurbishment of the kitchen and ten installation of a pizza oven.

The Knott is payment by card only.
