The Knott

While Deansgate Locks is inevitably popular with throngs of weekend revellers, we prefer the less raucous atmosphere at The Knott. Nestled under the iron railway bridge (the entire place rattles when trains pass overhead) this boozer sells an enticing range of ales including brews from local beer heroes Marble. Its name is taken from the railway station opposite. Now called Deansgate Station, it was opened as Knott Mill in 1849 (its original signage can still be seen above the main entrance).
