Great little bar in Monton, and one of Manchester' best. In comparison it rivals the city centre bars like Cask and Fringe and has a great selection. Prices aren't too bad, better than when they first opened. Selection of draught beverages changes frequently also

What a selection of beers, great service and a warm welcome my only niggle is an average wine selection. If you have ever tried real ales this is a good place to start

Malt Dog is nestled on the village high street in Monton, one of Manchester's leafy suburbs, whilst it is at the bottom of my street, it is well worth a visit. With continental beer and real ale on tap, endless bottle beers in the fridge it is a beer lovers paradise.

Locally owned with a loyal following, simple, unpretentious it offers a great even out with friends. Wednesday night is open night, which I haven't made yet, but always seems popular.

It has small seating area on the pavement and a selection of nibbles and small plates to help soak up the beer.

I've visited the Malt Dog on several occasions and have never been disappointed, the draught ale is second to none you can tell the casks are very well looked after!. The staff are very friendly and the landlady is very hands on and enthusiastic about the bar she runs.

Prices are reasonable and certainly no more than any other real ale establishment in Salford. If you like the Kings Arms/New Oxford , then you will love this place!

Always a great atmosphere when I go in and pleased it always seems to be busy, it certainly deserves to be.

Will certainly be back for more

Great range of beer and enough to suit all tastes, good atmosphere and love the branding of Maltdog too. Only niggle is I cant help but feel the bar should be on the back wall like Playfoots - would be easier to queue at the bar when busy. Other than that, top notch - try it out!
