Head down the steps and wait to be seated. You are shown to a table and given a slip of paper to register your contact details. Wi-Fi is available and the code is provided at the tables along with a QR code to scan to take you to the beer menu. However from our position we could see the hand pulls and the chalk beer board. No service at the bar, table service only. Two of four hand pulls were on, offering RedWillow Effortless and Pomona Island Session IPA as of yesterday afternoon. Not mega busy as you'd expect for a Tuesday afternoon, but a few customers in. Glad to see this place has been able to reopen, and I will be happy to pay another visit at some point.

Good Beer Guide 2019 entry.

Easy to miss, as its a subterranean cellar bar housed in a building that used to be a children's mission.

Once down the steep steps, it opens into nicely tilde wide spaces with woodend tables.

Bit disappointed with my visit. Two out of the three hand pulls in operation but mainly, its catering for very expensive bottled beers. One of the hand pulls was a port from Ilkley brewery - which was in good condition.

The tables were filthy - a combination of no beer mats and staff not clearing up the debris from the last occupants (who admittedly should be returning their glassware).

I’m all for former Victorian buildings of a different use finding new life as a pub or bar and in this case the basement of the former Manchester & Salford's Children mission building now lives on as a craft and cask bar. Well described by others it’s an interesting cellar bar to drink in with its Victorian glazed brick walls with little additional decoration.
In fact, the only issue I had with it was the internal layout for the bar area with the sparse bar with its craft keg wall and four ale hand pumps tucked away against the far front wall meaning that you have to queue through the tables during busy times, as we did.
On the ale front there is a good focus on smaller independent breweries from outside the Manchester area and my half of Beatnikz Republic Leather Soul was on fine form.
