Real Ale Ray has summed the place up perfectly and I can only echo his opening comment that it is very different to the original Cask in Castlefield.

Visited for the first time on Saturday and found six hand pulls for real ale at the narrow end of the bar, a further hand pull for cider on the main section of the bar, along with various keg, mainly craft offerings and some Belgian stuff too.

I had a cask beer by Squawk which was excellent and my drinking accomplice had something by Pictish which was just as good. The place was busy but not uncomfortably so, there is plenty of seating but it feels like a nice airy open space.

Definitely one in the area that's worth coming back to.

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.
