Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having given a poor review of my once favourite bar a few months previously, it’s only fair that I come back now that many of my previous concerns and gripes have been addressed Having been treated like a ginger stepchild by the ownership for a...few years, they have finally remembered their roots and shown the place some long overdue love Artwork and DJs are back, including the always interesting monthly one deck sessions Quingo on a Tuesday is always good fun The staff have always been and remain the greatest asset. Friendly fast and effortlessly competent. Sound people Prices are dearer than most locally. A post work happy hour would be a bonus with a cost of living crisis upon us Generally though, it’s getting its mojo back. And I’m delighted ti see it. Well done all and keep it up. Now just sort out the wooden flooring in the street frontage beer garden, it is knackered and a lawsuit waiting to happen!More

They now only serve pizza. The pizza it self had no flavour, and you didn’t even get free ketchup or mayo for the fries . How can you get pizza so wrong. Such a shame, they used to do a cracking Sunday roast, and now...they serve only flavourless pizza. Would not recommend.More

Once upon a time it was probably the best place in Chorlton. Good food, interesting beers, inspired entertainment and weekend DJ bookings and regularly changing art exhibitions. Sadly, the ownership seem to have all but abandoned the place that launched it all for them in...favour of their newer, more glitzy and presumably more lucrative venues. There have been quite a few occasions when they have either not opened or closed early in order to send their staff down the road to the Hilary Step which presumably makes more money for them. No DJs, no one deck Wednesdays and while Quingo on a Tuesday still draws a decent crowd, the whole place has a bit of a tired air about it nowadays. I believe the term is ‘managed decline’. Drinks can be very expensive compared to many neighbourhood rivals. Saving grace is the staff who are a nice and friendly bunch and doing their very best in the circumstances. And the regulars are mainly sound. Come on fellas. Sort it out and remember where you come fromMore

If it ain't broke...or so the saying goes. Really disappointed with the pizza, actually I don't think it was pizza. After many a good night out with the family our 1st return to Electrik post lockers was such a disappointment. Good luck, I hope you...can turn it around. No giro/fourside pun intended. Gutted to have lost our friday night, We even had a song for the place. That won't be getting sung any time soon.More

A good place to meet for a drink. However, if you only do one thing on the food menu (pizza) then it should be great. It isn't!

Drink in here alot as its one of my favroutie bars. Decided to nip in for Pizza last Friday. They are doing there famous pizza Giro every Night at the moment and for only £5 per person. Because of covid they just bring you a...board out with what flavours you want on there and if you want more they just bring it out. We had one to start but still felt a little hungry so asked for a small 2nd one, the chef must have forgot and another large one came out. We couldn't finish it but the lovely waitress said take the rest home. The pizza is so good with proper Italian ingredients. Service is good and always friendly. You must go try this deal it's such good value. The beers on tap are good too.More

Had a sharing platter. Food was spot on, service was attentive but the £2 charge on the bill for extra gravy is something I've never experienced before.

My partner and I just popped in today for their 'panozzo' Italian sausage sandwich which come in a generous portion and freshly made. We were sitting on the outside tables right next to the chef who was preparing them! The chef was very friendly and...made amazing grilled vegetables and sausage sandwich. I am from Italy myself so this brought be back home. We also had a good coffee at the end. Thank you ! We will definitely come back here !! 😊More

We never seem to be able to find a place that serves great roasts.... until now. What a fabulous meal we had. The restaurant is contemporary and clean, the staff are super efficient and the food was really very good. We had the roast sharing...platter which was delicious. The accompaniments were perfect and the selection of meats and vegetables was outstanding. I thoroughly recommend this place for a great quality meal.More

Look, I like this place, decent vibe, decent beer but god does Chris the barman have a chip on his shoulder! Easily the rudest man I’ve met, and I’m 30. Not only was he rude to me, but rude to my partner too! At least...he doesn’t discriminate between gender. I will be making an official complaint. Hopefully he learns some lessons in grace and decorum as he has all the grace of a reversing dump truck with no lights on.More

Came for the best Sunday roast in Chorlton?? How they can justify what I received as costing £12.50 is beyond me value for money not in my opinion! 2 very small pieces of chicken breast, 3 thinly cut carrots, 2 thinly cut pieces of parsnip...cabbage and asparagus with a few roast potatoes, £7.50 I’d say would of been appropriate highly over rated nothing worth that high cost of £12.50 the way they have their menu you would think that you was paying £5 which would of been a bargain and more like the value of the meal in still hungry 😔 unfortunately I have no pic as wasn’t excited about eating it got me because I was hungry and the Manchester run had stopped us going to the Carvery 😔 would not recommend here ripping people off!!More
