About the Pub

Wharf is situated in Castlefield Basin, dominating the confluence of the main canals, Rochdale and Bridgewater. Its entrance faces the canals and the large open area between it and Deansgate, as though to entice the weary traveller to its hearth. The front is surrounded by a patio for the summer days, where crowds gather to while away a warm evening. Entering one is presented by the long bar, with its impressive array of 12 handpumps. These invariably suggest a variety of styles and strengths to suit any palate. The food reflects this too, with a wide range of sizes as well as tastes. While not cheap, the quality shows. These are not ding meals!
