It is business as usual but as many of you know we are happy for people to take away cask beer, bottles and cans.

We know some people are wary of gathering in social groups under current circumstances and although we have yet to notice an appreciable drop in trade, we fully understand peoples' concerns, especially those with existing health problems.

With this in mind we are offering a new takeaway service.  Our 'kitchen' window, overlooking the car park, has now been designated our takeaway hatch, just like in pubs of old. Just tap on the window and we can serve you through the hatch to enjoy your favourite drinks at home.

We have a limited supply of takeaway containers for cask beer at present but are due a delivery of more containers some time today. If you have your own containers please bring them along for us to fill. You can also buy any of our craft and Belgian bottles and cans to enjoy in your armchair.

Please take care and heed the advice of the experts.

Belgian Bottles and Craft Cans

We now have over twenty bottles and cans in stock ranging from delicious Belgian ales such as St Bernardus Abbot 12 and Wipers Times from Kazematten to an 11% imperial milk stout with chocolate and orange from Wander Beyond in Manchester.

We also stock Tynt Meadow, England's only Trappist beer, brewed by the Benedictine monks of St Bernard Abbey in Leicestershire.

We also now have four draft ciders, two bottled ciders and four cannned ciders. For the drivers and non-drinkers we have a good range of quality soft drinks and, in a break from the micropub tradition, we also have a range of quality gins and rums.

We now have four pint re-useable takeaway containers for our cask beers and draft ciders so all our beers, ciders and soft drinks can now be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home or as you hurtle along on the train towards your destination.

Over the coming weekend we will be showcasing some of our favourite Mancunian cask ales including Marble, Beatnikz Republic, Thirst Class, Manchester Brewing Co and Squawk.
