Rumour has it it's changed hands lately but that wouldn't explain just two beers on offer when we called the other day, GK IPA (sigh)and the house bitter, which was perfectly fine. Certainly a change since the last time we were in town two or three years ago. Whatever, it is an interesting pub with some nice features, especially the snug, and well worth a visit. Probably the best bet later in the week when the average age in most of the other venues locally descends into the low 20s.

For some reason this pub was voted as the "Great British Pub Of The Year" by The Publican. God knows why on this latest showing. It hasn't even managed to make the GBG2013. We had been to the Hail The Ale Beer Festival just around the corner at the Palace Hotel. All GBG2013 landlords from Greater Manchester were invited, so you might have thought that this pub might have made an effort. Just 2 beers available from their 10 handpumps although the Ministry Of Ale False Economy that I had was a fair pint. This is a common problem in here and every time you ask why there are only 2 beers on you get told that "Supply problems sometimes occur you know". Well they don't in most other pubs. My colleague asked for a pie from the warmer behind the bar, he was told he couldn't have one unless he bought mash with it. Pathetic. A plea to the manageress just got a blunt and unfriendly, "No". Poor, slow, miserable service and a very limited selection of beer. No real reason to call in again for a while.

Called in again on Saturday with 7 of the handpumps in use. Had Allgates Jabba The Hop and Howard Town Wren's Nest. Both were good. There are old Space Invaders tables around the place and there's usually some sort of art exhibition going on. I always feel that the beer is a little inconsistent in here, but I keep calling in for one.

Located in the city centre, close to the BBC, you might see someone off that prog called Cori. Good range of real ales served, staff good and friendly well worth a visit.
