Warming your cockles

We only use the best coffee beans, which is why we source ours from a handcrafted local roastery in Manchester city centre. Stuart and the lads at ManCoco never fail to deliver great blends of coffee. 

Our choice of espresso blend from ManCoco is for the people who want a good hit of caffeine. A mixture of Sumatran, Brazilian and Ethiopian beans, this blend is fair-trade, organic and extremely tasty.

Mancoco - Arch 44, Hewitt Street, Manchester 


Always served ice cold

Bringing you our personal favourite beers served ice cold from our Lindr mobile beer dispensers along with Prosecco in all its bubbly glory. Alternating different casks to tailor to your needs, we're flexible with what we offer on tap. You choose, we serve.
