Rob Hunter left this review about Dulcimer

Visited on Saturday evening. Five hand pulls at the bar with one off, the remainder offering Wainwright, Beatnikz Midtown, Beatnikz Captain Planet and RedWillow Wreckless. The Midtown was £3.00 for two half pints, which seemed an absolute bargain (especially for the area). There was one woman behind the bar who just appeared to be watching everyone else work (and not stepping in when customers were waiting) which seemed a bit strange. However it didn't take long to get served. Standing room only at the time of our visit but we found a quiet area of the bar to perch at. Further seating is available upstairs, but at the time of our visit this was in use by a private party. Unfortunately you had to pass through this private party to get to the toilets, and trying to squeeze your way past a massive crowd of oblivious pissed office workers was not ideal. Another Chorlton venue I would be happy to return to.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Dulcimer

Inviting-looking 'ale and folk' pub (converted from a small shop) - part-way in size and style between a micro-pub and an old-fashioned alehouse. Plain, traditional furniture and decor in the bar. Also has further seating, another small bar counter (not in use when I visited) and the live music space upstairs. Four of five handpumps in operation, offering Wainwright, Six O'Clock Annuit Coeptis (£4.00), Salopian Holly Bush and Blackjack Black Maria. With a friendly welcome, efficient service and a good atmosphere, this one is well worth seeking out.

Possibly the best venue in Chorlton, it offers a nice relaxed atmosphere, also with occasional live bands upstairs. Very good beer choice. Great place for a real ale.

Neat little bar on one of Chorlton's main roads. It's not very large, but it is very nicely done with lots of bare brickwork and artworks all around the walls. A real mix of customers during my early Friday evening visit and a friendly barman helped with the atmosphere in the bar. 5 handpumps on the bar including one for real cider. I had a pint of Hardknott Azimuth which was in good condition. It's a bar I will definitely call in again.
