Last time I reviewed The Knott Bar I gave it a top notch review but in the light of its recent kitchen refurbishment I feel minded to return here and review again, for the worse. They used to have a small yet well-differentiated menu to...More

We found this place when searching for a bar offering some good ales to find finish off our first evening of two in Manchester. They serve a pretty good range of ales so we left some time later very happy.

Nice to see the place getting a new lick of paint though a sign on the "old" entrance pointing to the new one would be nice. It is to its left at the corner by the way. Anyhow, always like this place despite there being...More

Not quite sure why a recent reviewer chose to complain about how this place is "low end". There are plenty of very average places around & this is not one of them. Beer range is great; very attentive bar staff when we went - even...More
