When here Friday afternoon, only knew about it as my cousin used to work there but I had never been, had no clue where it was but found it on google maps and it was well worth it. Lovely trendy bar with fantastic outdoor space, we only went in for a pint but then saw the lovely menu, my parter... More

Went here for a friends 40 th birthday, the food was really nice very lively atmosphere, my only criticism would be that we where asked to move from the table and after eating would have liked to have sat and had a drink.

Thanks for the lovely words, and sorry that you were asked to move through to the bar. We do get very busy and try and keep it fair for everyone by allocating reservations a designated amount of time to enjoy at the table. I really hope we'll see you again soon. More

We've been here a few times and every time it's been very busy, specially in the summer as it's lovely to sit outside. Sometimes it's hard to get served because it's so popular so we prefer to go earlier on in the day.

Always enjoy going here. It does what it says on the tin and is just a very relaxed pub. Looking forward to the summer when I imagine everything will move outside!

The Oast House has been in Manchester for a few years now... it is located in the Spinningfield restaurant/bar area of the city... It is a different type of experience to the traditional British boozer but still offers quality food and drink, along with welcoming & friendly service... There is a great selection of ales and craft beers, plus champagnes... More

Googled a great Burger place.. Couldn't find the one we selected and stumbled across this place. Looked great and as was bad weather was cosy. Good menu. Settled on a Burger and a Chicken On a skewer, both came with seasoned fries. Nice food and wine but ordered a slaw to go with the meals which didn't arrive. Waiter very... More

Amazing historical rustic oast house building in the heart of Manchester, great patio area for those warmer days although many customers were sitting outside on a cool sunny February lunch time!. Loads of outdoor seating and an outside kitchen. Inside, there are many large tables for 6 or more, there... More

I visited this pub/restaurant with a group of work colleagues and was very impressed. They had a reasonable range of beers, though not well displayed, and a good range of wines. The food was different from the usual pub faire with the speciality being "hanging kebabs". These kebabs came hanging from a stand allowing a sauce to be poured over... More
