Good sized pub under a small block of apartments on Cottonfield Wharf. We've called in here twice recently and on both occasions there have been plenty of people in the bar and also outside on several tables next to the canal. The 5 handpumps for ale are on the left hand side of the bar, there's also a real cider pump on the front of the bar. There's a jukebox, pinball, dartboard and a stack of board games. It's also air conditioned which was a blessing on our second visit as it was roasting outside. I've tried 5 beers in here and all have been in excellent nick as you would expect with their reputation at their Liverpool Road outlet. Ms CAMRA thought the Rose wine was excellent as well. We'll be coming here again and again.

Cannot add much more to Real Ale Ray's review and must say i quite liked this one and found the hosts very friendly.It is a one roomed bar of adequate size and as mentioned, plenty of ale on show with the cask beer hidden round the corner of the bar on the left which i almost missed.

Quite a contrast to their original on Liverpool St in Castlefield. This new venture that opened last December overlooks the new Islington Marina. Inside it's a large open plan with a high ceiling, grey painted timber, concrete floors and a petrol blue feature wall at the far end. Seven pumps serving six ales and one cider, so we went for the Squawk Pavo. In addition there were 20 keg taps, two reserved for Belgium beers, there was also a good range of German and Spanish beers. The new licensee ran the Marble Arch pub for a long stint, I found him very friendly and upbeat.
