Visited this Saturday evening and it was fairly busy; looked like there were mainly students in but a few older groups too. I think there may have been some event going on in the room upstairs, these people were being served in plastic glasses whereas people using the main pub were given a normal glass. Obviously this is a Marston's pub so not expecting anything too outstanding on the real ale front, though on a previous visit they had a nice beer from their Revisionist range so thought it would be worth another look.

There were two "unusual" looking ales - Adelphi Strong and Adelphi Pale Ale. Both are apparently brewed by Marston's for The Old Pint Pot which seemed a bit odd to me. Went for the Adelphi Strong at 5.7% but I found it a bit weird, and definitely not as hoppy as I would have expected. Just to add to my experience I discovered half way through the drink that my glass had a massive crack down it.

Ordering at the bar seemed a bit chaotic, seems to be a case of who shouts loudest gets served, rather than the staff clocking who has been waiting longest. The table was a bit grubby and could have done with a wipe down. Other beers on cask were Hobgoblin and something by Ringwood (possibly Old Thumper).

Glad to have given it another try, but if you're coming from Manchester probably not worth the extra 5 minute walk from the New Oxford.

A riverside pub with a long thin area to the right where there is a pool table. To the left is a lounge style area. Outside seating overlooks a river. 4 handpumps on the bar with Wainwright's, Lancaster Bomber, Hobgob and New World Pale. Its alright though a bit out of the way if you're city centre drinking.

I used to visit this pub years ago. It was very lively and had a great outdoor terrace and I think it had a late licence until 12, which was unusual at the time. Things have changed a bit and the terrace is looking a bit careworn as are parts of the pub. It's now one long thin room with conservatory style seating at one end where there's also a step up to a dining area. There's a pool table and a quiz machine at the other end. There are a couple of handpumps, but the only beer available when I called in on a Thursday afternoon was Hobgoblin which was a much better pint than I'd expected. I was the only person in the pub and the barman & the chef were bored out of their skulls. Lot's of cheap food deals aimed at the students from the nearbuy Uni, so it probably picks up later. If it doesn't it'll be in trouble soon.
