I honestly had no idea that such a thing existed as a posh area of Manchester, but exist it does and this pub appears to be at the epicentre. Busy at lunchtime, mostly with diners, and we sat outside at the front.

Bootleg - Chorlton Pale Ale4.00ExcellentI thought this was a classic, straw-coloured, Manchester-style Bitter to the extent that I can remember such things.
Bootleg - Urban Fox4.20AcceptableA Red Ale, and, to be honest, a bit too red for me.

Busy with pre Christmas diners on a Tuesday lunchtime.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Bootleg - Chorlton Pale Ale4.00AcceptableServed too cold with a chill haze, knocking out most of the flavour in the beer. Some hoppiness in there somewhere. Didn't wait for it to warm up as other places were calling. My score 14/20 with B for quality, has potential to be better.

The pub is found in Chorlton, Greater Manchester, M21 9HS.

Low ceilinged open plan pub with several distinct seating areas. Modern decor in an old pub does not sit quite right. On site brewery called Bootleg and its beers appear regularly on the bar along with other local and national guests.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 7 different beers and tried 2 of them.
