I had the Pang fish finger sandwiches served on Artisan malted bread with moxed salad. Home battered fish was cooked to perfection, so many places overcook the fish... More

Popped in for a quick bite to eat with my mates. I got the Molly burger andnit was excellent! Presumably homeade patty, with juices dripping out of it. The little side of 'chips' were amazing too. Great friendly chefs too.

Playing the Gooseberry for two couples, The Molly House was one of my 'treats' from my friends- it's not a cheap drink... but a delicious special G&T, friendly fun staff- humour and approachable- I was allowed to read several bottles before I chose... and the lovely barlady (too knowledgable to be a mere barmaid!) was happy to clamber up and...

We knew each dish was around £5 and we ordered x3 each.... So the bill should have been around £75, however we were charged £90.....we said... More

Visited here Monday for a quiet drink with a friend before leaving Manchester after visiting for a long weekend. Nice atmosphere and eclectic furnishing. Definitely worth a visit.

Nice place for a drink, and the food is first rate! Had tapas in numerous places all over and this is definitely the best I've come across. Good to go on an afternoon to avoid heavier drinking crowds for eating. Nice atmosphere, nice staff. Good value also
