A largish venue near Deansgate Station (formerly Knott Mill Station – hence the name of this place) and part of the complicated ‘Marble Group’. That might seem superfluous detail but if you’ve been to any of the others you’ll know what I mean – decent food, ale selection and a vaguely slap-dash vibe – but in a very controlled manner. It’s certainly one of the better places in this area – near ‘Deansgate Locks’ and ‘Atlas’. Sittng out on the balcony, on the upper floor, is a bit of a treat in decent weather and gives nice views of the cobble lined canal heading off into Castlefield and along Deansgate itself . It’s usually pretty busy here and is pretty good.
