|When this Holt's pub first opened it was a very welcome addition to the local pub scene and we always went for the excellent Holt's Mild or Bitter. Our last visit - on a Saturday in December 2012 - was disappointing to say the least. The bar is one large open space with some seating around the walls and a few other bits of furniture but it had lost all its atmosphere and warmth. The beer was mediocre and was served in plastic glasses (you cannot be serious!!). This used to be part of the "threepubsnextdoor" crawl in Portland Street but I doubt if we will use the Old Monkey again which is sad as I normally love Holt's beers.|

|Like previous comments below I much preferred this place before the refurb. Back then it had true character and you felt like you was in a proper Manchester pub. |
As regards the ale, its certainly drinkable but nothing to go mad about. Not one of my main priority pubs I aim for whilst in Manc for sure.

|I never visited the pub before the modernisation so can't comment on that, but seemed a decent pub, decent pint, friendly lass behind the bar. Good pub! |

|Met a cousin of mine for a couple of hours here before getting my coach from across the road.Overall i'm glad i did.A very efficient barmaid served me an excellent pint of Mild at a mere £2-43 (ish).Nice bustling atmosphere too.Only drawback,as previous posters have written is that Holts really botched up the modernisation.I don't even remember how it looked before but i could instantly tell it was blander then it once had been. |

|The lunch time food is cheap, the beer is OKish. There are better choices in the area.|
