  Robin, Ray & Christian chow down at Knott Bar
by jayhawk2000

Knott Bar Fringe has a flashy new kitchen and chef but the food is still cheap, cheap, cheap! Look for an ever-changing menu of delicious specials. You can usually count on getting a pint of something gorgeous from the local Phoenix Brewery. It's in a railway arch at the bottom of Deansgate at the gateway to Castlefield, near the Deansgate Locks development on Whitworth Street.

The Marble Arch does terrific meals and I'm pleased to say they are serving in the evenings again. Their menu has been expanded and you can always count on veggie entres to go with your organic pint brewed on the premises. And it's quite cheap, too!
