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.

Another new bar in Chorlton, it's the sister pub of The Font in Manchester City Centre. It's a thin bar that goes back quite a way and there is a raised area to the right. There are some interesting carvings and pictures around the place. The rear of the bar appears to be made of breeze blocks, so it may have been extended. At the front there is a beer patio. There are some comfy sofas and chairs on the raised area, the rest is mainly dining tables & chairs. The chatty, friendly, blonde barmaid asked if I was a CAMRA member and when I showed her my card I was given a fantastic 25% off my pint. I think this is the highest discount I've ever encountered and it's available all day every day. Out of the 8 handpumps serving ever changing guests I chose Magic Rock Curious, which was an excellent pint. They also serve in 1/3, 1/2 & 2/3 of a piunt measures, there's a good range of bottled beer as well. There was a small dog trotting around the place, I suspect he's a regular rather than the pub dog. If this place isn't in the running for next years CAMRA Good Beer Guide there's something going wrong. A top bar and one I'll return to again and again I suspect.
