I haven't been here for a while but decided to go for some Sunday dinner. However, the only food they do now is pizza and ciabatta. That's it. I ordered a pizza however, and there is a good selection of vegetarian options. The middle of...More

Very impressive beer list which has to be one of the best in the whole of Manchester. Zapato from Leeds was very tasty indeed. They now have a pizza oven: pizzas (until 22.00) & beers do mix very well.

As usual the Knott has a wide selection of great Beers and the ambience of the place is always very very good. However, DO NOT HAVE THE PIZZAS! After renovation for some absurd reason they decided to remove all the food menu (which was OK)...More

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

This is a popular place right opposite deansgate station and deserves to be busy. It is not your average city centre pub and attracts a more mature and sedate crowd than other places. The reason for this is probably the range of beers they have....More

On a corner plot near to Deansgate, with floor to ceiling glass fronted sides & a wooden floored interior and walls covered in posters, this place is great. An extensive beer list on draught serving top quality ales. Hard to drag me out of there...More
