Cask, Liverpool Road, 2009. (c) deltrems at flickr.
Walk a short way down Liverpool Road and you will come across the gem which is Cask. The concept is simple: good beer, pleasant surroundings and nice ambience = plenty of customers. The place itself is a small two roomed bar with an outside patio out the back with patio heaters for the smokers. In the front the bar is adorned with interesting memorabilia mainly based on the Manchester theme. As far as beer is concerned, two every-changing real ales on, both well kept and flavoursome. Then there are all manner of foreign lagers, both draught and bottled.

Search this place out if you get chance; it's much better than the crap round the corner known as Deansgate Locks. Though watch out as it can get busy on match days when United are at home and tourists flock to this end of town (the famous Stockport songsmith Pete Boyle is a regular). The odd celeb is also spotted in Cask, particularly one or two Corrie actors who like a scoop.
