Met my daughter here having been for drinks there before. Two drinks, nothing special very nice but cost exactly £10. Ouch. Simply wonderful location probably drives the price and the food looked ok but have a word about those prices. Too dear sorry, will not be drinking Weiss bier at £5.20 a pint again. Not when I can get a bottle in Lidl for less than £2.50.

I went here whilst waiting to go into the Academy over the road to see Pitbull. Considering the amout of people you could quite easily get served. The staff were first class even under such pressure, its obvious this is a slick well run bar.

Didn't try the cocktails but they looked really good, prices were fair for the area

Have had a chance to eat at the Kro Bar on two occasions since the last visit. There is a discount offered for the University of Manchester staff which probably is the large part of the clientèle. The salads were tried - Halloumi on the first occasion and Thai chicken for the second visit. The rest of the group also did not have any complaints about the food and hence the return. The service was slow but the portions are good size. There is outside seating both onto the front on the Oxford road and in the area at the back. Ideal for any who are visiting the University or around Oxford road at Manchester.

Kro is one of my reliable choices for a quick drink or a bite to eat and perfectly placed at Piccadilly Gardens. The menu is broad and interesting. It's obviously Danish inspired making it distinctive from other nearby destinations, that said there is a reliance on pork for many dishes. Value is good: prices are fairly low for what is well made and filling food.

Good atmosphere based on the chatter, otherwise the decor is pretty plain. Not somewhere you'd go for an occasion, but an ideal place for a work lunch or quick drink.

Went with daughter, wife and friend to grab an early evening bite. Food choice was limited due to some things not being available off the menu. Only two choices of bitter and then they were obscure brews. The food and service were fine. The whole place screams 'grubby student' (their main clientele I imagine), some painting and cleaning would move it up a point for me.
