The Wharf is another Manchester pub I've been meaning to visit for a good while. However, it's a little off the beaten track and involves traversing a few canals to reach it from Deansgate. I'm always impressed by the Brunning & Price chain and this one was no exception.

A sign on entering requested that we wait to be seated. We did and the waitress found us a table on a lower floor, as we were only staying for a swift half. The pub was busy, although an upper section overlooking the main bar was closed off, presumably due to a lack of staff to man it. There certainly wasn't a lack of trade. In fact, some hardy souls were even taking up outdoor seating overlooking the canals. It's probably a nice view in the summer during the daytime. However, it didn't seem quite so appealing to me on a winter's evening.

A total of 8 cask ales were available at the bar - Brightside Brunning & Price Traditional Bitter, Weetwood Cheshire Cat, Distant Hills Kerala, Mobberley Beer House Bright Spark, Wishbone Blanc Stare, Lancaster Chinook, Beartown Claws & Penning Christmas Cranberry Stout. I have a feeling that there were ciders too, which I didn't note.

This place has a fairly upmarket feel, but whilst diners appear to be priority, drinkers are not completely ignored and with 8 real ales on offer, there must be a good turnover.

Visited on Saturday and The Wharf was absolutely heaving - on getting to the bar discovered 10 hand pulls (split across two banks of five) but unfortunately only two ales were available and these were duplicated across both banks. One of these was Weetwood Cheshire Cat, the other Peerless Red Rocks. Service seemed a bit on the slow side considering there were plenty of staff for the number of customers. We managed to find a table and the Red Rocks proved to be a decent drop. There were several craft keg options available, though not as many as I remember from my previous visit. Combined with the reduced cask ale selection, I felt this was not as good as on previous visits. I'd happily give it another go, but not in any mad rush.

The Wharf is a large canal side multi-floor pub that was fairly busy when I visited on a Wednesday evening back in November last year. A long bar on the rear wall faces a few high tables and the entrance. To the left and right are lots of seating and to the left and right rear of the bar are sunken seating areas. Stairs to the left lead up to the toilets and yet more seating and more stairs. I didn’t spot any televisions and there was no background music playing. The bar supports two banks of six hand pumps and a premium keg selection. Food is available. I will visit here again when next in the area because I want to sit at the table right in the roof of the building.
