The Font is a double fronted café bar that has a large awning out the front that pulls down very low, so I had to duck under it to enter the seating area that it covers. In the left hand side on the left wall is a bar counter next to a small open kitchen for cooking flat bread pizza and other such foods. The bar supports five handpumps, but three were unused which left Redwillow Brewery’s Head Less as the cask ale option and Weston’s Vintage Draught as the cask cider option. Premium keg is also available from the friendly staff. Down the right had side is seating that runs to a curtain that has more seating behind it. This reminded me of first class on an Easy Jet flight. There was some background music playing during a recent midweek evening visit. I liked the atmosphere, which is probably better at the weekend. I’d have no issue revisiting.

Maybe Saturday afternoon was not the best time to come.

No doubting the quality of the beers - cask, keg and bottle on. I had an unusual Belgian gueuze for £8 - which wasn't too outrageously priced.

The problem was it was full of young professionals - yuppies, as they may have been know in London - complete with their feral kids in posh party clothes. They were enjoying the excellent wares and their kids were charging all over the shop.

Inside, resembled a wacky warehouse creche.

Relative tranquility on the outside seating.

Started a crawl of Chorlton at Font on Saturday evening. Eight hand pulls at the bar, one of which was off. Cask ale prices range from £3.90 to £5.00 a pint. Keg stuff is also available. It was pretty busy (especially considering we were in the middle of Storm Dennis) but this is a double fronted unit and has the benefit of being bigger than many of the Chorlton bars. We just managed to get a seat, and if we hadn't there would have been room to stand. My Hopfordian IPA (Thirst Class Ales) was good and slipped down nicely. A variety of beer styles available on cask at the time of my visit, so no complaints from me.
