Rob Hunter left this review about Mary & Archie

Visited on Saturday evening. This is a pretty small bar and it was heaving. A couple left as we were ordering at the bar so we did manage to pounce on their table, and in similar vain another couple pounced on it as soon as we got up to leave later.

Four hand pulls at the bar, one of which was off at the time of my visit. We went for the 4-3-1 by Brighton Bier, two half pints of which set us back £4.00. The other two ales available were Blackjack Bitter and Blackjack Pub Ale. The bar is small with a sign advising there is no service at one end of it, which makes the other end of the bar crowded. Despite there being three members of staff behind the bar, there was no room in the designated serving area for them all to be serving customers at the same time.

The bar was pretty noisy, partly due to the large crowd in such a small space, and partly due to the DJ blasting out his tunes from the small gap between the end of the bar and the window. The DJ looked a bit like an Aussie surf dude, there was a guy wandering round with a scruffy beard and wearing pyjama bottoms, and several genderfluid looking types. This is peak Chorlton, and a swift half and moving on was enough for me.

Very much a cafe and then bar. That said it does have 4 handpumps which all were on dispensing 2 Blackjack beers, a Dark Star Antares beer and one I've forgotten. The place is only small and very yellow. I assume Bob 'dale will be down quick smart to approve or not.
