Not been to either mate but there is a cracking pub just down Liverpool Road over the road from the Hilton called Cask. Extensive selection of quality ales and Belgium / German lager on tap with a really good jukebox. Well worth a visit if you are down that end of town.

Spent far too much time in there.

Stinks though. I don't think they have ever mopped the floor.

I was in the Thirsty Scholar before the Super Furries gig last week. Now that is one smelly pub. Stinks of sweaty socks. Not Scottish people, actual socks. The drains hum as well.

Anyone remember the Brahms and Liszt? Now that place was a vomit reeking hovel. Stank in there.

Village Idiot in Manhattan, used to be a meat market/dive, puke stench soon as you walked in was unbelievable, they must have been shoveling it into the air-con ducts.

Snatching misery from the jaws of glory since, ooooooh, 1973?

Re: Per Tutti - Manchester

Gotta love the natural flow of things on here.

I'll take all your input into consideration on my romantic evening.

Ta...

Re: Per Tutti - Manchester

Just buy her a big bunch of lilies to hide the puke stench, all good.

Placid, what does she like? Hawksmoor have a bar on Deansgate nor far from there. If you walk around Spinningfields there's plenty of restaurants with decent bars when the love of your life is in tow. Grand Pacfica will do you a nice smoking bourbon old fashioned whilst she sips a Manx version of a Singapore sling.

That said if she's not into fancy bars I know a damaging stink of a hole just down Liverpool road...

Re: Per Tutti - Manchester

Went to Dimitri's loads when I was doing my Bar exams in Manchester. That was 2001 mind. Sure it's still good.

She’s the main man in the office in the city and she treats me like I’m just another lackey, but I can put a tennis racket up against my face and pretend that I am Kendo Nagasaki...

That's the Greek tapas place int it? I've been there loads of times come to think of it. The food is still brilliant. Always feel like I'm on holiday in there.

The Deansgate is an excellent traditional real ale boozer. Some ladies do like that sort of thing. Briton's protection round the corner on great bridgewater street is even better. Really old, loads of history, very charming.  If your mrs likes fancy and modern then as LL says, have a walk round spinning fields. Or the hotel bar of the Great John's Street hotel is not far from there which is very posh and where Man Yew players do their roasting.

Re: Per Tutti - Manchester

Thankfully she's not into man u players roasting, well not when out with me anyhow. Might do Dimitris then Belle and Sebastian

Re: Per Tutti - Manchester

"Roasting with Man U players" might have made a passable television programme at one point, in the same vein as Partridge's "Arm Wrestling with Chas & Dave" and "Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank" ideas. You could have had wankers like Norman Whiteside on how best to do a rolled shoulder of lamb without drying it out or Brian Robson on the roast spuds with fresh rosemary. Perhaps Andrei Kanchelskis's immensy hittable face telling you how best to get your Yorkshire puds to rise even. It would get right on your tits but you'd watch it. It just wouldn't work with the one dimensional, vacuous crop of scummers today though would it? They'd be flying off to Nandos for some overrated, overpriced shite then on to meet their cretinous mates to drink blue wkd, listen to rap music and have group sex with an attractive but emotionally unbalanced young woman. Probably with one in her gob and another in her fanny. Disgusting.

Got her number? Just thought I'd nip in before Pat.

Are you suggesting a twos-up with said SP and you and Pat?  I can see it now - although,  to me,  it's an extremely unpleasant scene.......!?

You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an event - it is a habit.

Re: Per Tutti - Manchester

Why not? Pat wouldn't turn up.

Re: Per Tutti - Manchester

Decent little independent restaurant. Attentive staff. Lots of fit women in. Had a pizza with steak Stilton onion marmalade spinach on. Pretty nice.

Re: Per Tutti - Manchester

Went to a cafe place in Northern Quarter other week and then somewhere called Dough I think. Both were alright it was the 10 hour session that may have clouded my judgment on the food however.

Oh the viagra and resultant effects didnt help me much either.

I shall be visiting again so any recomendations will be gratefully accepted.

In that area. Dont want to be paying for a taxi.

Any other recomendations round the Picadilly, northern quarter are in Manchester. I'm on a promise with my Air Hostess friend if I treat her nice
