An interesting looking shopping centre Wethers. As its in the 'New Orleans' part of the Trafford Centre the exterior is done out to resemble a deep south Huckleberry Finn kinda place. The inside is made up of two floors with a bar on each floor. Lots of Southern States bumpf dotted around plus, bizarrely, Happy Mondays and Oasis pictures. Just the six handpumps and, as noted, a pretty awful selection. The beer may be expensive for a Wethers but I got a pint of some 5% international guest beer for £2.29 on my Wednesday afternoon visit. The place isn't great but like Mr Lung I too wasn't expecting much.

This is a shopping centre Spoons so expectations were low. All the High Street food and drink chains seem to have been all slung together in this area of the Trafford Centre where it's on the first floor. The whole thing has a New Orleans theme inside and out. It's a rectangular room with the furnishings not as crammed in as usual and another area upstairs that I didn't visit. It wasn't that busy on a Thursday afternoon and it didn't look as though anyone was just in for a drink. I noticed some of the prices here are sky high, eg Fish Friday £10.75 and Green Devil 500ml Bottle £4.65.
The beer choice was pathetic as three of the six hand pumps had festival ciders leaving Abbot, Doom Bore and Ticketybrew Golden Ale. I went for a festival cider which was a whopping £3.85.
I didn't take to this place or the Trafford Centre and won't darken either of their doors again.

The Mardi Gras opened in Feb 2011 in the French Quarter of the Trafford Centre,after spending just short of a Million pounds converting the site of the former Dexters Bar and Grill.The walls have images of New Orleans jazz artists, Mardi Gras face masks and other oddments of memorabilia from the deep south. The pub has 2 floors with a bar on each,and although i only visited the lower floor found the cask choice slightly limited.A fine job has been done on the outer facade,and found the inner ok but thought if the balcony rail could have been made from wrought iron in the New Orleans style rather than a plain wooden one, it would have given the place a far more authentic feel to it.
