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.

Large double fronted cafe bar, friendly, nice vibe, a bit hipsterish. The beer here is served slightly warm, but a good choice

This is another shop conversion. There is an area with a red tiled floor and a raised area with a wooden floor. The bar has six hand pumps which included Buxton Gold & Rednik Stout, Magic Rock High Wire and Track Mazama. I didn't note the other beers as I started choking after discovering that the Buxton Gold was £4.20 a pint. To make things worse after getting it topped up it still wasn't a full pint.
The muzak soundtrack was dull and depressing including a Leonard Cohen song from centuries ago.
I wish I had checked for CAMRA discounts before coming to Manchester as it is claimed that this place does 25% CAMRA discount. This would have reduced the cost to £3.15 but how is it fair that CAMRA members pay over a quid a pint less?
I thought this place was pretty poor, the only good thing was the beer quality but unbelievably, worse was to come back in Central Manchester where I returned to having given up on Pi which I must have walked past.
