The bar itself hasn't changed that much since the days of Argyles, although they have opened a smokers area out at the back, which will be a good spot in the summer if we ever get one.
The beer range was ok, although the choice of Real Ale was not especially exceptional for Chorlton standards, they do have a decent range of imported bottles.
As it was lunch time I went for a pint of steady old Wainwright's.
Slightly smaller than I imagined it'd be, it had two 1/4 pound beef patties, and I got to choose one sauce (chilli jam) and one topping (blue cheese).
The fries were plentiful and looked good, they were proper crispy and thin, although slightly over seasoned for me. The burger with meat from local butcher Frosts was pretty good as well. I couldn't really taste the chilli jam, but it was an ok burger nonetheless.
I'm not sure what the atmosphere/evening crowd is like as I went in the daytime when it was fairly quiet and with the dog, (it's dog friendly as well another plus point for me).
To conclude, I think it's great what they're doing at Morley Cheek's, they've looked at the market, seen what people want and gone straight for it.
I'd have done exactly the same thing if I was in their shoes.
I would definitely return to try one of their 18" pizzas, I wonder if I could manage it all on my own?
Food: Not the worst.
