Great service, The staff was helpful and they were knowledgeable of their beers The place was a bit busy, so avoid going with large groups as you may end up in a small table.

We've been here a few times now, however, the last experience I had was a bit mixed, had to book a table 2 weeks in advance for Sunday lunch, not that I'm complaining as the food is exceptional & a real treat, the table we had was very small & virtually in the walkway, with diners/staff constantly passing, we did ask to be moved to another one, but was advised they were all booked even though they were empty!! food was still excellent apart from having to have the flame for the fondue relit on 2 occasions as it kept going out, but all that aside the staff are really pleasant & helpful though they are run ragged, a definite if you are planning a Sunday in Manchester, but, I would suggest booking well in advance as you won't be able to get a table on the day.

The cafe was an amazing experience as it was my boyfriends birthday and I surprised him by taking him to this cafe. I walked past it one day and instantly wanted to go there and I was not let down. I got the Italiano baguette and for £7 let's just say I left feeling extremely full. You get so much food for you money and the chips were unreal. The beer was not disappointing either and there was a large variety to chose from. I would definitely reccomend this place to anyone looking for a bite to eat and some nice beer. 10/10

First visit to this cafe with family, I loved ever minute of it, the rustic feel, the atmosphere and the staff were great, we had so much fun with one of our waiters. I loved the food, we had mussels and four of us shared it as a starter, it came with lots of bread and fries, which were delicious, two of us had the cheese fondue and there was plenty of food. Would have liked to try the sharing platter but will on our next visit. Will definitely go again.

We had booked ahead to ensure we got a table as it isn't a massive venue. The tables are a little close together but that doesn't detract from the experience and the fact that it is table service means you don't need worry about getting to the bar. Very attentive staff who ensured all the tables were looked after. We had the sharing platters and they were really good as is the range of beers available. Will definitely be returning.

First off let me say I like Bock bier cafe and will be returning but at our last visit we had a couple of issues. They were very understaffed - with 1 stressed out girl having to manage front of house and the bar on her own! This meant - despite her bety efforts - service was uncomfortably slow. Second issue is the tables have been rearranged on the first floor and 2 people in our party hit their heads on a low slung light fitting - it is a solid wooden and glass construction with a considerable weight! Food is good and beer is great

Visited twice the same evening. For party of 8 we were given a table upstairs in the bunker type area, felt detached from the rest of the bar much preferred it downstairs where a couple of us returned later that evening. The atmosphere was much better even though it was late, will def visited again but will request not to be given the table tucked away upstairs.
